Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a general contractor when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a general contractor, avoid any physical contact, don’t shake hands, keep 6 feet of distance between you and the pro and sanitize all involved surfaces. Also, use digital platforms to communicate and make payments.

Spruill Remodel was hired to complete a bathroom remodel, refinish the hardwoods throughout the house and paint the interior and exterior at my primary residence in Oak Cliff, TX. Brandon is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. He takes pride in his work and wants his customers to be fully satisfied with his workmanship, which I was. I look forward to working with Brandon again soon!

Castañeda Remodeling did an amazing job. Not only were they reasonable and willing to work with my schedule and budget, but they also exceeded my expectations on how quickly they were able to do the job. I was only planning on remodeling one bathroom and decided on two due to the trust they earned and the amazing job they were doing. The members of the team were professional and kind and I will definitely be hiring this company for future renovations. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed!

He's well trained in electrical, plumbing, painting and room resizing. 2 👍👍up.

I contracted and worked with Pedro and Christian on my bathroom remodel. They demod a really worn/aweful condition paneled bath and tub in my older Oak Cliff house. I was wanting it converted it into a walk in shower. What did an incredible job! Extremely good looking tiling, plumbing, and overall finish. They were punctual, responsive, and really neat with their work. I would highly recommend them!

GCR did a complete remodel of our very dated master bathroom after we bought our house, and the work was exceptional. The bathroom was torn down to the studs and completely rebuilt (as you can see in the photos). It's hard for me to believe it is the same room. Arthur is extremely responsive, communicates timelines and when work being done very well, and is willing to talk through ideas. He and his dad are also willing to give suggestions if you are "stuck" on a decision, like which way to lay the tile. We were consistently impressed by the quality of work being done and ended up having them do several other projects while they were doing the bathroom work. We have already recommended GCR to several people, and they will be our go-to when we need additional work done on our house.

Resourceful Transformations is a top notch company and I highly recommend Markus and his crew. Markus is extremely knowledgeable about all things construction and does beautiful and quality work. Resourceful Transformations extensively remodeled two bathrooms, a hallway, and the master bedroom in my house. The bathrooms were completely stripped down to the studs and the plumbing was relocated to better utilize the space. They did an excellent job with everything. The whole crew was personable, polite, clean and extremely hard working. The project stayed on budget and on schedule. Markus was able to take my plan, use his expertise and hard work, and make everything work. He was great to work with and kept in communication the whole way through. The expertise of everyone, including the subcontractors, who worked on this project made my house look beautiful, even better than I had hoped. I plan on hiring Resourceful Transformations to finish the rest of my house and I certainly recommend them for any of your remodeling and construction needs.

National Renovation performed complete remodeling of Master Bathroom and kitchen. One thing is for certain on every project there will be some bumps on the road. Jaser is a skilled hands-on contractor that is very knowledgeable and worked with us to solve problems on the spot. From the very start he provided us with a detailed itemized estimate, so we knew exactly what to budget for. He was very accommodating and great attitude (Hard to find these days!). He did an exceptional quality of work and delivered as promised. I highly recommend him without hesitation.

Used Good Brothers for my master bathroom remodel. It was a complete gut job, including taking down walls. I had been talking to Frank for a while, and he was always professional, responsive, and was never pushy. When I finally decided to go with them, Im glad I did. The workers were there every single week day, and sometimes even on the weekend. They were all professional and very thorough with their work. Frank was involved every step of the way, and communicated with me regularly. I chose the option to buy all the material myself, which was a bit of a hassle, but definitely saved some money. I was very happy with the end product. Highly recommend!

My project is about 85% complete, but I didn't want to hesitate writing my review about my experience so far with CJ and Carsa Construction. From the beginning, every person I have worked with has been thorough, responsive, and timely (whether it be CJ or his partners). As a general contractor, CJ excels in his ability to proactive communicate and respond to every area of detail--it is a quality hard to find in my experience having remodeling projects completed in the past. Even further, his entire team has embodied the utmost level of professionalism, care, and attention to my home--every night they have ensured they clean up after the day's work, and they are proactively thoughtful throughout the project to communicate openly and transparently with me on every level to ensure I am made aware of any items of discussion immediately (which is part of the process when you remodel, as you find things along the way). In a short period of time, I have grown to trust his team implicitly--they arrive promptly, they are courteous that I work at home, they are completely respectful of the most simple things (like asking me if it's Ok to eat lunch inside on a cold day), and I trust leaving them in my home when I am not here. Being impressed puts it very lightly with this team, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every person on the team. While still a few odds / ends to complete, I came home this evening to find that the team had literally cleaned almost every inch of my bathroom (after the remodel), and it was obviously they even started dusting off some of my bedroom furniture (that had understood dust created from the work). This team is remarkable. Communication, Communication, and Communication--they obviously understand and respect it, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing a quality, trustworthy, and honest team for your major home projects.
