Generally both a bathroom and kitchen fitter, he is involved from design to completion. He can propose layout plans, then order the materials, organise the site, install the various elements of the bathroom (from sanitaryware to furniture and finishes) and ensure that it is put into service.

For the creation and complete renovation of a bathroom
Renovating or creating a bathroom requires a wide range of skills in terms of electricity and plumbing, tiling, flooring, ventilation for a possible VMC, etc.
Unless you are a seasoned DIYer in all these areas, it is often essential to call in a professional. And as the bathroom is a crucial room, it is imperative that the work is carried out as quickly as possible and in compliance with standards.
For bathroom maintenance and enamel repairs
Installers and fitters can carry out bathroom maintenance and repairs, as more specialised tradespeople such as plumbers, electricians, etc.
Some professionals specialise in enamel repairs, such as repairing chips in old bathtubs or total re-glazing. The old enamel is removed by shot blasting before any repairs are made. The new enamel is then sprayed on. This operation carried out on site is possible on almost all enamelled sanitaryware. You can even take the opportunity to choose a new colour. In the end, the re-enamelled sanitaryware will look like new, for easy maintenance and high durability.
