I had a number of repair jobs around the house for Larson Home Repair and Landscaping, some of them more difficult then I thought they would be. Josh was a consummate professional and was able to think quickly on his feet and get everything done quickly and efficiently. Excellent work. Thank you Josh, will use again.

Branden did an amazing job on our bathroom remodel. He came when he said, was very polite and did an excellent job! I would use him again and highly recommend him.

No words can express how happy I am with the work Branden Manee's and his crew did renovating our home. The age of the home is 49 and I don't think the carpet ever had a professional cleaning. Just thinking about what I saw under that carpet still makes me sick. Now, I know the cause of all my respiratory problems this last summer. Dirty carpet truly can make your respiratory begin to fail. Brandon explained to me that ceramic tile is the best way go in helping to keep the floors clean and they last much longer and you are less likely to damage the floor board if you have a pet that for some reason thinks the floor is their place to potty! I chose an antique wood style with Branden's help and it looks absolutely GREAT! I can breathe, now! Branden met me at the store to help me pick out what was needed. He helped me with the whole process making it so much easier to go through the renovation process. Branden also replaced old lighting and ceiling fans, painted and is in the process of finishing work up on a couple of doors that were pretty banged up and needed replacing. Next, I would like to have him renovate the bathroom. He is really good at tile work and he is very fair with pricing so I can't wait to get started on the bathroom. They also helped in taking out all the old furniture and putting it into the dumpster. I care for my 92 year old mother and it is hard to get her in and out of the tub, so, Branden is going to install a walk in shower. Our vanity is a 55 inch and is old and has kitchen cabinet doors on them. 55" vanities are pricey, but, Brandon has ideas on how we may be able to just pull out the old one and put in a smaller one that would more fit our budget. Brandon helps you cut corners while going through the project thus saving you money. Again, I can not describe how very happy we are that we took the leap and began fixing up this old house and chose Branden to do the work. If you are looking for someone you can trust that does excellent quality work and is not afraid of hard work and helps you to keep the cost down - Branden is the one for you. I also want to thank Eric for his help working on his hands and knees on that dirty filthy floor. I am ashamed to say but that old carpet was like what you would find in a house of hoarders. It was so filthy. But, it is gone now! And the ceramic tile is great! We love it! Thank-you Branden and crew!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

How much does a shower remodel cost?

No bathroom remodeling project is as satisfying as making over a clunky old shower by installing new shower heads, tearing out plastic and tiling the walls, and increasing your water pressure. The cost for a shower remodel really depends on your overall bathroom remodeling project. Nationally, the average cost of a total bathroom remodeling project is $14,000, including the cost of the shower remodel. For a standard bathroom renovation — including taking out the shower and shower pan and installing new shower pan and shower, new shower door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures — the average price might range from $6,500 to $10,000 for labor.

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.

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.
