"Please know that I highly recommend Freddy Diaz of 3B’s Contracting for residential home improvement work. I hired 3B’s, and specifically Freddy Diaz, to do a complete renovation of a two bed, two bath condo in Glenwood, IL. I live in Minnesota so I needed someone I could trust to do the job without my on-site supervision. I was given a referral to Freddy and contacted him. He met me later that day to estimate the job. A couple weeks later he provided me a complete, detailed proposal. We met one more time at the condo and I signed the contract, gave him a deposit of about half the contract and the keys and returned to Minnesota. In fact, I soon left for about a month out of the country! When I returned to Glenwood about a month later, the job was essentially complete! Again, this was a complete renovation. All the floor coverings were removed and new carpet, vinyl and ceramic tile installed. Old wallpaper was scraped off and walls patched and painted. All new kitchen appliances, sink and quartz counter tops were installed. Cabinets were repainted. All new bathroom fixtures and controls were installed. Light fixtures, electrical outlets and switches were replaced with new. Exterior windows were returned to operational condition. Nothing was left untouched. Freddy encountered some minor issues in my absence which he dealt with while keeping the project within budget and completed on schedule. I received compliments from the building management on how Freddy’s crew cleaned up the hallways and elevator each day they were on the site. In summary, I am extremely pleased with the finished apartment and most satisfied with how easy Freddy made the process. He was sensitive to budget concerns and helped make selections that kept the cost down. He proved to be extremely trustworthy and more than competent. He communicates well and was always responsive to my questions. I could not be happier with the results of the project."

Chad did a great job for us. He was on time- did a great job prepping and painting our bathroom, built and installed an access panel for us and cleaned out our dryer vent. He was very professional, made some helpful suggestions regarding a bathroom fan and cleaned up too. We would hire him again!

We know Ray through a contract with a construction company that we hired for a remodel on our bathroom. From the beginning, Ray was in charge and did an excellent job. He had a vision and helped us with ours. His attention to detail and the extra efforts made our dream bathroom a reality. We cannot say enough positive things about him and his work. It is with great pleasure that I recommend him and his crew. In fact, we have recommend him to our neighbors (who have hired him) . Also we can't think of a better complement than recommending him to our children and we have.

Marek did a great job painting my bedrooms and was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and worked around my busy schedule. His wife Gracie did a great job setting up the appointment to meet for an estimate and sending it to me quickly. Looking to remodel my bathroom next and I will definitely use Marek Wojciech Construction again!!

I cannot say enough about Larry and his crew. They were the best contractor experience I have had to date. I have been remodeling a Victorian home top to bottom and with that come many challenges. He was very creative in solving what could have been big problems. He was conscientious regarding keeping me within my budget. He consistently went beyond my expectations and was so helpful picking up merchandise, advising me and supplying an excellent level of craftsmanship and service. They spent extra time making sure things were perfect and when they left my new bathroom was gorgeous, the work area was spotless and my family and are extremely happy. I have already recommended him to my friends who as also doing a bathroom and I think anyone who hires him will be just as happy. Val S.

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.
