Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a contractor in Atlanta to remodel my bathroom?

Before you search for contractors make a list of all the projects that you want done. For example, do you want a new bathroom vanity, fixtures or cabinets?

Then, search online for bathroom remodeling contractors in Atlanta. Compare their profiles to see which ones will be a good fit — pay close attention to previous customer reviews, descriptions of their services and photos of their past work. 

Once you’ve narrowed it down, contact the contractors and ask for a written estimate. But before you hire anyone, find out if your project requires a licensed pro. If so, make sure they hold a license in Georgia.

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. 

Reach out the best bathroom remodelers near you to start planning your project, assemble a team and get cost estimates.

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.

We were absolutely blown away by this experience!! He was extremely professional, hard working, honest, patient and thorough. We could not have asked for a better experience. Our master bathroom had to be completely remodeled. Not only was his pricing better than the three other estimates we received, the finished project is so beautiful! I will recommend Nevaeh Remodeling to anyone looking to have bathroom work done. He was so good that we are having him remodel two of our bathrooms in our new home! He is the best!

The price they quoted me for a small condo bathroom remodel was unbelievable. It was 20k more than other reputable companies quoted me. I asked around and people who had gotten their bathroom remodeled recently didn't spend anywhere near what they quoted me. If you're looking for an affordable contractor, I wouldn't waste your time.

Dream renovations were a dream come true. They picked up where a previous contractor had left with an abandoned bathroom remodel. They were very professional and performed quality work. I heartily recommend Dream Renovations for residential work.

Mr. Parks helped to remodel our bathroom (paining, new lighting, new vanity, etc.). He was friendly and professional at a reasonable price. He did quality work and took the time to make sure the job was done right. Would recommend for future work.

I hired C&R to place tile for my bathroom remodel. He offered to do the plumbing for the shower. After completing the work and getting fully payed, I noticed that the bathroom plumbing was leaking everywhere. Called him to look at the problem but he gave reasons not to come. The tile looks good but be careful having him do plumbing. I spent extra fixing what he did.

Bane's Impression recently completed my bathroom remodel. We ran into quite a few unexpected problems once we started opening the walls, and they remained calm and professional despite the circumstances. They made sure to keep me informed of the progress while I was away majority of the remodel. Also, I was on a budget and they were mindful of it throughout the process. They were respectful and flexible of my condo's strict working hours. I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Bane's Impression. I will be doing the same for my next project.

VMK Zanetti's did an amazing job with my bathroom renovation. They originally quoted that it would take 6 days to complete the job but were actually done in 4 1/2 days. The quality of work, attention to detail, and amazing customer service provided by this contractor made this into one of the best remodeling projects that I've experienced in a long time.

I hired Chuck to remodel my bathroom including the following items: - paint the bottom half of the bathroom - paint was splattered or ran over several areas of the bathroom including on my wallpaper and on walls that were not expected to be painted; there are several areas where paint is missing where it should be - put up peel and stick wallpaper on one accent wall - wallpaper is patched together in places that are not all aligned, the wall needed to be sanded down first for a smoother finish, holes were left in my wallpaper, overall dissatisfied with the wallpaper installation - change light fixture - installed correctly - change out sink fixture - installed but failed to install the drain - install vanity mirror - installed but off-center - hang two shelves - installed but with four holes left in my wall instead of the needed two - install towel ring - installed correctly - install toilet paper holder - installed correctly

I have an older house built in 1964 The bathroom has never been remodeled. Mr. Wheatley and his crew came in and gave me a very fair estimate, they were professional at all times, they were on time, and the communication was great. Mr. Wheatley had a great personality, he didn’t speak down to me, and his crew operated in the exact same manner. They ran into a problem with the plumbing and instead of covering it up or just leaving it a problem for me to fix later on they stayed and fixed it going to Home Depot three times in one day until they got it correct. It’s a good feeling when you hire somebody who is honest and who takes pride in their work, I was blessed enough to have conquered both of those with Mr. Wheatley and his crew. Thank you very much!!!!!

Happy to report that Man Cave Designs made our dream master bathroom a reality. Our townhome had a spacious but dated master bath with mostly contractor grade finishes. We opted to have Richard and Rebecca remove the existing soaking tub and tiny standing shower and replace with a large modern shower. With the additional space created they installed built-in shelving, giving us some much needed storage. We also had them tile the floor and update our vanity with new countertops, mirrors and sconces. Our favorite part of the final construction is the herringbone feature wall in the shower—it is truly stunning. A close second is probably the pocket door which we included late as a change order and they were gracious in accommodating. Working with Rebecca to pick fixtures, tile, and counters was very smooth. She understood our style and suggested great options while giving us the freedom to bring ideas and select final materials in person. Both Richard and Rebecca are skilled craftsmen—they ran electrical and plumbing and did all of the tile work. The painting, drywall, and countertop crews they used also did a nice job. The project took quite a bit longer than we expected, in part due to some change orders, but also because Richard and Rebecca were occupied with some other projects. Ultimately, we got exactly what we wanted and cannot be more thrilled with the remodel. Thank you!
