Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. 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. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. 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.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

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. 

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

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.

We hired RPM for our bathroom remodel & I truly cannot say enough good things about this company and its owner Vince Ortega! We have owned 2 fixer upper homes over the last 8 years, so I am very well-versed in home improvement DIY as well as what it’s like to hire various tradesmen. Because of that background I not only have high standards for work quality, but also a need for open discussion about the work I want done & what I want to do myself bc of budget. Vince exceeded my expectations in both those areas! He listened to what I wanted, discussed my options, answered all of my questions & best of all, consulted me every time something came up that needed a design or logistical decision. And for people who DON’T have any knowledge or experience, THIS is the company to hire bc they know what they’re talking about & they’re happy to talk it through with you OR make the decisions you don’t want to be involved in. Those 2 qualities together make a home Reno project so much less stressful :) In the end our bathroom turned out flawlessly. Our shower & floor tile & new bathroom fixtures are beautiful & I couldn’t be happier with it. RPM is absolutely exceptional and I am so thankful we found them. As long as we’re in the Denver area, they’ll be my go-to guys for all the things I can hire them for! (No seriously, we’re hiring them some landscaping this summer 😆) Vince & Dominic, your work is truly quality & it was a joy to have you in our home. Thanks a million!

Quality flooring and granite can improve by getting out of the business of home remodeling!Aaron and his team left my bathroom like this. After, I refused to accept a mirror he had prices on the invoice for $895 dollars when it was clearly refurbished from an old job. After going back back and forth with Aaron regarding his integrity and how he tried to give me a mirror that he claims he paid $700 + for I requested the come take the mirror back and get his money back because he had been bamboozled. He swore up and down that he paid a high dollar for the mirror and would never produce and receipts for said item. Please do. It deal with him e marks items up well above the standard 15%. Wants payment to buy materials that are not available when team comes out to install because they wait on him for over 2 hours to bring materials that have already been been paid for and should be at job site when work is to be done. He does not communicate at all! He pulls current workers on projects from your project to work another project and does not communicate this to client. You look up and the workers say the have to leave be uae Aaron wants them to go to another property. He had to fire one guy that was on my project because I complained about the inconsistently and Medes that person left everyday. Aaron never attempts to correct the problem himself he just finds another set of workers that he can send to your house. He stole my old sink didn’t even ask if I wanted it. Overall terrible experience and it makes so much since to me now why he only had 3 reviews, I warn you do not work with this man!!

Brief version: We hired DreamWorx after some tiles came up and we discovered cracking in the floor of our master bath's custom shower. We originally hoped to be able to repair/replace the poured pan, and spoke with and got quotes from a few companies with that job in mind. From the start, DreamWorx was our top choice. Nathan, the owner, and Oleg, who has worked with/for Nathan for a number of years and produces masterful work, were incredibly knowledgeable and direct with the work they could do, their pricing, and the unknowns we faced (like the extent of any damage lurking below the tile). For various reasons—not the least of which is the near-impossibility of only replacing the floor—it turned out we really needed to redo the whole shower. The finishing touches were just completed yesterday and we are SO pleased with the result and relieved to have a great-looking, properly functioning shower, and so grateful we chose a company that wants its customers to be pleased and stands behind its work with a warranty. Looong version: After first meeting with Nathan and Oleg, Nathan provided two itemized quotes, which is hugely important to me (especially as a person who deals with purchase orders and invoices and some project management in her work), but frustratingly so many service providers are not quick to do. This wasn't a project we were anticipating or particularly excited to take on, and Nathan was very patient with me and my initial difficulty accepting the inevitable scope and expense. Communication was excellent while we nailed down project details and Nathan helped me understand various material options and design choices. I agonized over some design elements and which tile to choose, and Nathan and Oleg both were helpful in pointing out pros and cons as well as effects on cost. Nathan met with me at a granite/quartz supplier and at a couple tile stores, and I did some tile-hunting of my own. I was ridiculously indecisive about tile selection, but he remained super patient! On our start date, things got off smoothly with a glass company removing those components for reinstallation in the new design and with Oleg overseeing demo. They were *extremely* careful about protecting surfaces in our home and took all possible measures to contain dust, which was remarkably effective. Thankfully demo revealed no extensive damage or mold, so things proceeded with fixing the framing of the bench (which was not well-designed originally), pouring the new floor, and redoing the walls. My anxiety kicked into high gear again when it came to tile placement on the walls and pattern flow, but Oleg once again showed calm confidence and was incredibly, mind-blowingly thoughtful about his tile work. He beautifully matched patterns and continued tiles around corners. I should also note that our house is almost 100 years old, and this bathroom was converted from an old porch addition some years ago (the porch having been built in maybe the 1950s or before?), and it has a *A LOT* of quirks including structurally sound but not-remotely-level surfaces. No matter: Oleg precisely measured, trimmed, and fit each individual piece of material to perfectly fit the space, to improve the lines of the room, to look beautiful as a whole, AND to ensure the previous glass panel and glass door would perfectly fit back in. I'm very particular and didn't want to be forced to take on this project only to later be frustrated by minor details that I would constantly spot and be annoyed by, and I swear Oleg's handiwork and honest opinions about the design not only consistently impressed me but also saved my sanity. And he showed up right on time Every. Single. Day. Nathan was very frequently on site to oversee things and assist with work, to discuss progress with me, and to answer any questions, and he was always remarkably prompt to reply to calls, texts, and emails. As we reached the finishing stages I was not super happy with a few details of the drywall and paint, and Nathan was immediately on top of it and made sure it would be done to the highest standard, calling me right back after I texted him with a concern early one morning and offering to stop by (on a day he was not scheduled to do any work at our house, regarding a cosmetic issue for which pictures totally sufficed). Nathan and Oleg both came to personally give the final product a once-over and do any tiny touch-ups they spotted. They encouraged us to contact them with even the slightest concern and we are now on the other side of a big project— one that was begun reluctantly on our part, but has ended with a beautiful, much more stylish shower, significantly upgrading our master bath, and with confidence in DreamWorx, which we will unreservedly recommend to friends, family, and neighbors.
