Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are bathroom remodels worth it?

Remodeling your bathroom can lead to high personal satisfaction, as perhaps even a return on your investment when it comes time to sell your home. When you replace old and worn out surfaces with high-quality materials, it is almost guaranteed to improve the look and functionality of that space. A bathroom renovation can also improve your home’s curb appeal to future buyers and boost its overall value. 

To determine if this project is worth the cost, start by getting free estimates from the best bathroom remodelers near you. And if you plan on selling your home, consult with your real estate expert to identify which remodeling projects you should prioritize.

Do I need a general contractor for a bathroom remodel?

For a small bathroom remodel, you may not need a general contractor. For example, if you simply need some plumbing or electrical work done in your bathroom, hiring a plumber or electrician should be sufficient. 

However, if you’re tackling a large-scale remodel, a general contractor can coordinate a team of designers, painters and other specialty contractors to get the job done. Typically, the rule of thumb is that you should hire a general contractor if your project is large enough to require a building permit.

What should I ask a bathroom remodeler before hiring?

It’s important to ensure that you and the contractor are on the same page before any work begins, so don’t be afraid to ask potential bathroom remodelers plenty of questions.

Start by reading the contractor’s reviews online. Ask to see examples of their past work — specifically, work that is similar to yours. If you need the bathroom remodel done by a certain date, ask the contractor if they will be able to complete the work by your deadline. And you should always ask how they handle payments. 

Here are some examples of questions you can ask:

  • What materials do you recommend for my budget and overall vision?
  • How much are the materials and labor? What will my final cost be?
  • Do you have the proper license and insurance? 
  • Can I see photos of past bathroom remodels you’ve worked on?
  • How long will it take to complete the remodel?
  • How do you handle payments?

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling varies greatly. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps.

The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost. Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. 

Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures. Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.

Where should I start when remodeling a bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Before starting a bathroom remodel it’s crucial to know what you want and have a clear understanding of your maximum budget. If you’d love all marble fixtures but have $3,000 total, you will have to compromise. Being realistic about materials and money before you even contact a contractor will have you on the road to success. Here are some simple steps to follow in the planning stages of bathroom remodeling:

  • List your remodeling priorities in order of importance (e.g., 1. New shower head, 2. Replace flooring, 3. Install recessed lighting, etc.).
  • Calculate what you can realistically afford to spend on your bathroom remodel. Identify an “all in” price — meaning the absolute maximum you’re willing to pay, as well as what you’d prefer to spend.
  • Gather ideas from Pinterest about colors and finishes.
  • Research the costs of the materials and finishes you want and begin making choices about what is and isn’t possible to fit into your budget (once labor is included). If you’d like to stay under $10,000 total, but really love a $2,000 tub, plan to downgrade in other areas.
  • Request quotes from at least three reputable general contractors, share your vision and ideal materials, and work together from there.

How long should a bathroom remodel take?

With proper planning and a good general contractor, your bathroom remodeling project doesn’t have to take forever. The construction phase of the project will always vary based on your scope of work, the square footage and the condition of your bathroom under the surface layer. Inevitably an 80-square-foot master bathroom with major changes will take longer than a 25-square-foot guest bath undergoing a minor renovation. For a smaller bathroom, a facelift — the industry term for sprucing up the surface layer (such as paint, vanity, tiles or light fixtures) but keeping the existing footprint of the space — may take five to eight working days, as long as there are no surprises like mold waiting when the old vanity comes out. A more complex bathroom remodel that revamps the shower area (customizing the plumbing, installing tile and changing the shower door), updates the flooring and cabinetry, and adds new paint and new lighting could take anywhere from one week to three weeks. A full bathroom remodel that guts the room, changing the footprint and moving the electrical wiring and plumbing lines, could take four to eight weeks or more. To keep your bathroom remodel on schedule, have your materials ordered and waiting, and don’t make any change orders once construction begins. Planning is key to keeping a bathroom remodel on schedule.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

How much does a shower remodel cost?

If you don’t need foundational work (like a new shower pan) but want a tile makeover in your shower, the average national cost for tiling a shower is $3,875. The average cost for bathroom tile is $25 per square foot for installation; at that rate, a standard tub and shower combo tile job with walls that are roughly 6 feet to 8 feet high may have tile installation costs that average $2,000. If all your bathroom really needs is a new shower door, door installation averages $250-$510.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a general contractor when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a general contractor, avoid any physical contact, don’t shake hands, keep 6 feet of distance between you and the pro and sanitize all involved surfaces. Also, use digital platforms to communicate and make payments.

We spoke with several contractors and found that Scott was by far the most responsive. We liked that he had the most clearly written bid / contract and that he had a lot of experience with insurance claims. He and his crew completed two bathroom remodels, new flooring, new baseboards in about five weeks and for a reasonable price.

Venus Homes is awesome! Narsay was prompt, efficient, and responsive at all stages in the process. They remodeled two bathrooms for me in December of 2019 and it turned out beautifully. His quote was very competitive and the work that they did was great. His crew was skilled, punctual, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. My wife and I both work during the day so being able to trust that the crew would let themselves in, work the full day and then clear out before my family got home made the process particular easy. I would highly recommend them!

We had the worst experience with this company and I would never recommend them to anyone. Bottom line: do not use this company. They will make promises and then never deliver. They will do a poor job and then will not stand behind their work and fix it. We hired them in July 2021 for a 4 week project remodeling our shower/tub into a walk in shower to start in August. Our 4 week project turned into 4 months, mostly because they kept hiring and then firing subcontractors who didn't know how to lay tile. From the beginning, communication was poor. They repeatedly had to reschedule and missed multiple days due to not having adequate workers. They didn't remember the bathroom plans so had to redo parts of the project over and over. The person in charge, Stewart, did not oversee the work and so every day when I came home I would have to text with pictures trying to figure out what had happened and why it was wrong. They put down plastic sticky stuff from our front door, up the stairs and into our master to "protect" the floor. The floor is irreparably damaged. I cannot even articulate the number of times I had to resort to threats to get them back out to finish the project. At one point, they “comped” us the rest of the money, about $1500 out of the $15,000 they had charged. They did this for the “inconvenience” but I think they just wanted to remove any leverage we might have had. In December, they said they were done, but only told us after they had left our home, without a final walkthrough. When we contacted them, they told us it would be weeks before they could come back but the shower was “good to go”. I was finally able to get them to agree to come back out in March by threatening to lodge a complaint with the contractor’s registrar. They created a “punch list” and emailed it to us. I then went through it and required they agree to finish the work within a calendar week (they said all repairs would take 3-4 days maximum), keep the house clean and not damage the floors further with more sticky plastic. Stewart agreed and then… nothing. No attempt to schedule. I emailed asking when he would start and he told me they couldn’t start on a Monday but maybe a Thursday or Friday. At this point I was done. I allowed Stewart to try to work it out with my husband and they agreed to a week. They were late starting. They did not fix everything on the punch list and they left once again without a final walkthrough. We had concerns about the grout already cracking, they caulked the grout…with the wrong color and that includes the floor. The grout is uneven and pitted. One wall of tile was so poorly installed that they had to demo and retile the entire wall. Our paint is semigloss and the repainted and touched up with flat or eggshell. We were concerned about a patch or tile that never dried. Stewart promised to go through the ceiling on the lower level to check for a leak but instead caulked over the tile. They grouted with the wrong color and used grout paint to “fix” it. The installed lights do not dim correctly. The new ceiling vent/fan they installed is caked with dust as they left it running the entire time they were there “fixing” the shower. They broke our GFI in the bedroom. There is mortar and grout all over the walls where they redid the tile. Also, they caulked the corners instead of grouting and it is already peeling. I emailed them more than a month ago with all these concerns and more, plus pictures. I have received no response. Do not use this company. The people in charge have no idea how to do any of the work and just hire random workers to come in and do the job.
