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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

How do I plan a bathroom remodeling project?

If you’re stumped on how to plan a bathroom remodeling project, it pays to hire a designer. This is especially important if you’re changing your bathroom layout in any way. Designers create contractor-friendly drawings indicating exactly where each tile and fixture will be installed, down to the light switches. This investment might cost you $300-$500 but save you significant frustration and miscommunication, while ensuring you get precisely what you want.

If you’re going to do your own design, planning a bathroom remodeling project means being organized and planning ahead. Create a general outline of what you want and the budget you have. Identify the specific fixtures, tiles, paint and vanity you prefer. Get all this organized before requesting quotes from two to three reputable general contractors. Once you find the right pro, get a written contract outlining scope of work, materials that will be used, timeframe and payment schedule. Communicate clearly about when to order your materials so they are ready and waiting by the time the contractor gets the permits. Your job from here is to communicate clearly, pay the contractor as the work progresses, and enjoy your remodel when it’s done.

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.
Reviews for Oakland Park bathroom remodelers

I had two bathrooms remodeled by Gemco. I feel the pricing was quite reasonable and the finished product was nice enough. I am giving the company a two because sadly I experienced endless amount and stress and issues with their work. They ended up having to reduce half of the work poorly after I spotted very careless mistakes. A few examples are: 1. The mirror was cut wrong 2. The granite was cut inside the house leaving a huge mess 3. An employee dropped the shower faucet inside the tub damaging it 4. The baseboards were put on extremely poorly 5. The list goes on and on Gemco did address my concerns in the end but it was a bit of a headache.

We hired J&J service tech corp, and dealt with Mike (Owner) for a home renovation. This included a 3 full bathroom remodel and 1st floor tile renovation for approximately 1500 sq feet. We were told that this job would take 45 days or less. We are currently over 60 days in production. The contractors took a week off in the middle of our job to do another job without advising first. Mike promised that this would not affect our 45 day timeframe. This deadline was stressed because we had just provided our landlord with an intent to leave his property within 60 days of them starting the work. This would allow my family an additional 15 days to move from our old home into our new one.  Their workers also stole a whole pallet of 48x48 porcelain tile which equates to cover 300 sq feet. Initially we purchased 1800 sq ft of tile for the 1500 sq ft job to cover possible issues. While doing our weekly inspection, we brought up to Mike that a portion of our tile was cracked. Initially, he said he hadn’t noticed but ultimately stated it would be changed; it was not. Due to the stolen pallet, we were told there wasn’t enough to cover the cracked tile issue. Mike was advised of missing tile but no action was taken. Also, a brand new drill worth $200 was stolen.  The workers were filthy! They left food, trash and beer bottles throughout my home, outside and even in my pool. They drank our personal waters and ate the children’s snacks directly out of our refrigerator and pantry. A week away from the 45 day mark; Mike asked for an advance. We provided him with this advance because we thought we were close to the finish line. A day later we were advised that additional issues had arisen.  For our bathroom remodel a plumber would now be needed and “WE” would need to pay the plumber $1300 for vanities to be installed. Mike stated that they were outside of his level of expertise and capability. Prior to Mike’s new recommendation, we asked what kind of vanities and he said he could do the installation of any vanity we purchased. We were never advised of any stipulations in regards to style limitations of vanities for our bathrooms. We had 2 different styles of vanities from different stores. Our vanities purchased from Lowes were delivered unassembled. Mike advised AFTER the vanities were at our home for weeks that he only installs pre-assembled vanities.  When we asked Mike for tub measurement requirements, he stated that what we already purchased and what he seen well over a month before installing, that the tub was too big and should be returned. Upon obtaining a 2nd opinion we were advised that we just needed to remove the bathroom door and it would fit perfectly.  In addition, Mike was not willing to work with us in regards to the unexpected $1300 even though this was a highly compensated job worth well over $20,000. Ultimately, we were willing to pay the $1300 for the plumber so that we could move into our home. The plumber never showed up as anticipated. We were told by Mike that the plumber would come Sunday, then Monday, which eventually, the plumber never showed up. We have reached out to Mike via text and phone multiple times. Mike wrote back 5 days later saying that plumber will not be used and a new plumber will come finish the job. We were unsure if new plumber is more expensive or cheaper; that information was never conveyed. We have decided to sever our working relationship with Mike. Our experience with him was horrible and I would not recommend this company. Mike is a thief, unreliable, unprofessional and did not deliver the seamless service we needed to timely transition into our new home. Hopefully, we could come to an understanding to recoup some of our money back before legal actions are taken.
