Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 do I find and pick a contractor to remodel my bathroom?

Start by searching online to find a qualified bathroom remodeler near you. Take a few minutes to review the profiles of five or six contractors in your area. Pay attention to reviews from their past customers. How do they handle negative reviews? Are most of their customers satisfied with their work? 

Next, look at photos of their past work to see who offers services that look the most like your project. You might also get inspiration for your bathtub, shower, backsplash, flooring, walls and backsplash. And before you hire someone, ask them whether they are licensed and insured in your state.

Lastly, to help ensure you pay a fair price, get free cost estimates from several contractors you’re considering.

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.

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.

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.

Does a general contractor need to enter my home?

Provided the project is located inside your home, completing the job would require a general contractor to enter your home. But if your project is located outdoors, a general contractor will likely not need to enter your home. Discuss your options with general contractors in your area before hiring.

Tony did a fantastic job on our bathroom remodels. He was responsive and very through during the planning process; and even moved his schedule around to better accommodate our preferred start date on the project. The quality of the work is top notch and Tony finished the project in the time frame he quoted us on. I would not hesitate to hire Tony again for a bathroom or really any remodel project.

I had Tony remodel 2 bathrooms with me. He was on time and finished both projects ahead of schedule. He even met me at the tile store to pick out the correct material. I'm extremely pleased with the results.

Shawn and his team took great care of our bathroom remodel. We had a tight timeframe for the project and it was completed with a week to spare. Once the project started, Shawn communicated with us daily about when to expect workers the next day what work would be done. His team was always punctual, kind, and professional. They replaced our floor tile, shower surround, trim, vanity and counter. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

My experience working with Nick and his team at Paragon definitely exceeded my expectations. They understood my vision for my master bathroom remodel. They made any adjustments along the way I requested and also consulted with me on any changes They felt would make better use of the space. I appreciated the fact they would show up everyday at 8 am and work beyond 8 hours everyday and an occasional Saturday to prepare for the following week. They took the necessary steps to ensure everything outside of the bathroom was protected. Overall they have been a pleasure to work with and have provided exceptional service. My project is moving along great and looks amazing so far. Can't wait to see the final product and post some pictures!

I would highly recommend Alexander Construction for your next project. I was in a bit of a bind after working with a previous contractor on my bathroom remodel and they stepped in to fill the void. Andre came immediately to take a look at what I wanted to be completed and was quickly able to give a fair quote for the work. Rich and Curtis were great to work with. They showed up on time, worked very hard and let me know what they were doing every step of the way and completed the project on schedule. I couldn't be happier with the end result.

What you need to know about bathroom remodeling.

What is the average cost to remodel a small bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling prices can vary widely depending on your current setup, the finishes and fixtures you select and the materials you'd like to use. In general, remodeling a small bathroom costs around $5,000. For an accurate price estimate, it's important to get estimates from local bathroom remodelers, designers and contractors. 

If you need to make major updates to older plumbing and electrical infrastructure, expect your costs to far exceed the average. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to know how complicated, time-consuming or expensive a job may be before you get a professional bathroom remodeler into your home to take a closer look. 

How much will it cost me to renovate my bathroom?

While the average national remodel cost for a small bathroom is $4,395-$5,502, your rate may be much higher or lower depending on the scope of your bathroom renovation. 

Your contractor should discuss the specifics with you, but keep in mind the following can impact bathroom renovation costs: 

  • Your location
  • Material costs
  • Labor costs
  • Plumbing and electrical work
  • Tile replacement costs
  • Cost of new finishes and fixtures

How long does it take to finish a bathroom?

The amount of time it takes to finish a bathroom depends on the contractor’s (or the company's) schedule, how fast they work and the scope of your project. When you get a price estimate, ask the pros when they could start work and how long they think it may take to complete the job. 

Can you replace a bathtub in one day?

Yes, assuming the contractor has access to the materials and supplies needed, replacing a bathtub in one day is possible. Of course, if the contractor experiences unforeseen problems, there may be a delay. 

However, keep in mind that larger bathroom remodeling projects typically take more than one day to complete. Much of this depends on whether you need existing fixtures removed, and which elements of the bathroom you want to be remodeled. 

Who do I hire to remodel my bathroom?

General contractors and bathroom remodeling services can provide estimates for remodeling your bathroom. Depending on your needs, you may want to hire contractors (such as tile installers or shower installers) with special skills and tools. 

You can find the best bathroom remodelers in your area on Thumbtack. Read reviews from their past customers, and find out if they are licensed contractors before asking them to provide you with an estimate.
