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?

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

Excellent quality and work ethics. Working with Anatolie on a full bathroom remodel made a long, difficult project feel easy. Anatolie was flexible and willing to modify plans to best suit our needs, and I felt he worked on our master bathroom with a vision and treated it as if it was his own master bathroom. Everything was done with utmost thoughtfulness. Highly recommended!

Alex is great to work with and my bathroom is beautiful! I highly recommend them. I have also had them redo my electrical panel and meter. Alex is very responsive and communicates well. They were very flexible and helped my vision for my spa like bathroom come together. Vlad, who did most of the work, was very respectful and had excellent craftsmanship. A great crew to work with! My full bathroom remodel took about 5-6 weeks with a couple visits after for a few minor remaining tasks. I’m considering having them do other projects on my fixer upper in the future. I would absolutely refer them to others looking to remodel or even build new.

Integra Built did an amazing job remodeling my master bathroom. After another company completely messed up my remodel project, Integra came in and cleaned up the disaster and rebuilt the shower and finished all the other problems. Their prices were very competitive and their work was beautiful. I was very impressed at how efficient and professional they were. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them to anyone.

Lunas was great! The bid they gave us was very good, and our finished project is great. They remodeled a master bath, giving us a more open, larger space with a framed door into the bathroom. We also had laminate flooring installed in three bedrooms and a small hallway. Excellent work including being done during the summer of covid.

Ben is amazing! He exceeded my expectations on my bathroom/kitchen remodel and did it in a really short time frame. He was also super flexible when another vendor needed to push back a date. When going over my project, he took the time to explain how we could save money by altering certain parts of the project. He worked collaboratively with us which was great because we've never remodeled before. I would definitely work with him again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor.

Job: Demo and labor to remodel 2 small bathrooms; including enlargement of the shower in one bathroom. Fast and the cheapest bid, but quality suffered accordingly. Constantly had to ask for things to be redone or fixed just for it to look right/nice. In my opinion, they did not allow enough time for the job (originally said both bathrooms would be done in a week, which was ridiculous). By week 2 things were being rushed (because they had another job to start) which led to errors and more quality issues. Btw - caulking is NOT the fix-all for quality issues and a wet sponge does not take scratches out of marble tile! I don’t believe that any permits were pulled for the electrical or venting work (I haven’t had any requests for inspection as I have for other work I’ve had done), and they didn’t provide any of the pre-job paperwork (i.e. notice of right to lien) that I’m pretty sure is required by law (again I’m basing this on other work I’ve had done recently). I gave them 3 stars instead of 2 because overall both bathrooms turned out OK in the end. But it was a very frustrating and exhausting process of constantly having to ask them to fix quality issues and errors to get there. There are still a couple of things that need to be fixed that I’m going to have to fix myself because I’m just TIRED of arguing about how things should look/be done!

John and Brian were great to work with. I had two bathrooms needing work, one of which was a full remodel and the other was a repair and floor tiling. We added heated flooring under the tile just in time for cooler weather which I love. I knew what I wanted in the design and they worked with me to make it happen. I like to do a lot of things myself and was pleased to find in them partners that allowed me to do what I was comfortable with and then picking up and completing what I was not. John is very honest and personable in his dealings and I felt that he valued me as a customer. Brian is very detailed and is a perfectionist. He spent a lot of time making sure things were aligned and correct and never left til I was happy. I will actually miss not having them around every day though I am very glad to have my bathrooms done and usable again! I highly recommend A&C Innovative Contractors and I will definitely use them again for my next project!

Edward did an excellent job on our bathroom remodel. He removed cabinets without damaging walls and removed a tub surround and a soffit over our bathtub. He created a custom niche in the bathtub wall, and also a between-the-studs storage niche next to our toilet. He is skillful at repairing damaged walls and ensuring that walls are plumb before installing tile. He also installed a recessed vanity mirror with lights which required re-routing of the electrical wiring as it was too short, and replaced our existing exhaust fan and toilet. He is a very hard-working, skillful and creative worker with many talents for construction design. When complications arise he always has a quick plan to solve the problem. I will look to him again for future projects.

We are rating 2 stars because we had some difficulty working with Cultivated Shelter, who we hired for a master bath remodel. For background, our project included updated tiling for floors, walls, and shower, adding a freestanding tub and a new vanity. There was some plumbing work that needed to be done for the new fixtures, but John believed it would be a simple project. We chose white subway tiles with dark grout for the walls and shower and dark matte honeycomb tiles for the floor. So, what went wrong? Let’s go over two of our biggest issues: 1.) Lack of timeliness. John estimated our bathroom remodel would take three weeks max. At this point, it’s been almost 3 months. They do not communicate well when they will or will not be coming even after I repeatedly asked for a heads up on when they would be at the house working. Several times they would tell us they would be there and then they wouldn’t show up for another two days. 2.) No attention to detail. We’ve had a wide range of issues with their work from not fixing a toilet issue in a timely manner, which resulted in a ceiling leak (note, they did patch the ceiling and paint over it, but it’s noticeable and we’ll need to repaint our entire downstairs ceiling to match) to asking them to repatch and paint the bathroom ceiling/wall after neglecting to sand down lumpy areas, a freestanding tub spout that is crooked and not centered on the tub, and our biggest issue - uneven tile work in the shower creating an uneven feeling standing area, unfinished corners, and uneven tiling on the wall. They tried to cover the uneven tiling with extra thick caulking in the corners. They missed sections of grout + caulking that we’ve had to point out to them since we’d like to avoid additional water damage. Sealant on the floor tile that now looks like it's peeling. They got it done, it's just not the quality we were hoping for. In the end, it feels like we’ve thrown most of our money down the drain since we’ll have to hire another contractor to come in and fix some of these issues eventually. Here are some pictures so you can see too.

Oh where to start. Everything was excellent from start to finish. First off, the workers who came to demo, they got the job done. Cleaned up after wards in the master bath when their part of the remodel was done. They worked quickly but efficiently to have the area ready for the plumber. ( think I if I remember was next). Anyways he removed and caped off what wasn’t needed. Then added in the new plumbing that was required for what was needed for the new shower. Then the electrician came. There was a GFI electrical for the jacuzzi we wanted gone. But I wanted to save it to add another electrical outlet where there wasn’t one. So he did that. We wanted a LED pot light over the new shower so that happened. He noticed ( this house was built/ we bought new in 1994) that this master bath electrical outlets next to the sinks weren’t not GFI. So I asked him to correct that issue. Much safer now around water. We also had him install a LED pot light over the tub/shower combo in our guest bathroom. Also upgraded the electrical outlet to GFI. I’m very much into safety. The dry wall was put up and then the shower was started. We got rid of a tub and wanted a large walk in shower with all the extras. The timing of the shower and floor was done by one person. The shower pan was done by another person. The plumber installed our new faucets and toilet. Plumber is to returned to finish our shower. But as far as A&C Innovative goes. We are very pleased with their work. They cleaned up the master bath room before they left for the day. Now my husband and I have the fun part of doing the remodel we’re are physically capable of. I’m definitely going to hire again for other future projects. A+++++ in my book.
