Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a contractor in Houston to remodel my bathroom?

You can search online to find several Houston bathroom remodeling contractors. Read their profiles to see how long they’ve been in business and what kind of work they specialize in. 

When you’re on their profiles, pay close attention to their customer reviews, ratings and project photos. This information will help you understand the contractors’ capabilities — and you might even get flooring, tiling and other design ideas for your bathroom remodel. 

You should also verify that your contractor holds the proper license in Texas to complete your project. Your last step is to gather free cost estimates from several contractors you’re considering before you make your decision.

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.

This was my first time using a remodeling company. I had a pipe that burst during the winter storm and I had a great experience from beginning to the end. I had my bathroom remodeled and it turned out great. The guys that showed up did a wonderful job and they were really hard workers. I would definitely recommend Realta Remodeling to anyone who wants to remodel their home.

James performed a slight bathroom remodel for us. He remodeled our stand up shower and removed a pony wall. I reached out to multiple contractors who were afraid to do this job because of the difficulty of the pony wall and the tub but James took on the task and pulled it off flawlessly. James walks you through every step and is very meticulous. He always explains his steps before moving on and is sure to get your input before making any choices as well as letting you know what the updated cost will be so there are no surprises at the end. The value we received was great because James' prices are nearly unbeatable for such high quality of work. Will come back and add pics.

We had a fabulous experience with Manna homes, and Rene and Carolina did a wonderful job with our bathroom remodel. They are so incredibly skilled at what they do and highly creative. I noticed their attention to detail. They go above and beyond what they're expected to do. They perform the work as if its what they would like in their own home. In addition, the entire Manna team, including Denny, are so friendly and kind as well. Thats an unexpected bonus! I would hire in a heartbeat.

After looking around for a good company and had 3 of them come out GEI Renovation Group was the one a took for my Kitchen and bathroom remodeling in Houston. About the work I can tell you that I. Was not at home most of the time. We left a luckbox for the crew and they kept the home safe and clean. The guys made us feel very comfortable and we appreciate all the good work ethics. Job looking amazing and we would recommend Ido very much.

Jose and his team are such a joy. He renovated our master bathroom and every detail was taken care of. His painters are amazing his plumber is amazing his tilers are amazing and he himself is very knowledgeable on all aspects of bathroom remodeling. We have a brand new bathroom and it’s perfect. He renovated our dated tiled shower with a very modern pretty glass shower. The vanity is now shaker gray and we love it. The counter is quartz which I didn’t even know I wanted until he showed me a sample. I can’t compliment this company enough. Super professional and perfection is their middle name. Would we use him again? We already have and we have several more projects in the pipeline for him and his team. It’s hard to believe when somebody had all 5 star reviews but this man is the real deal. I’d give him 6 stars if I could. Don’t hesitate hiring him. The finished product is well worth it

We could not be happier with the phenomenal job Juan and his team did with our bathroom remodel and kitchen backslash after our first contractor messed everything up and abandoned our project. They were always on time, extremely detailed and communicated with us every step of the way. Juan is a professional and his work is meticulous. He even finished ahead of schedule which is unheard of with contractors. I have and will continue to recommend him to family, friends, and neighbors. Rest assured that when you hire Bella Floors for your project, you will be in excellent hands!

Our guest bathroom was in dire need of TLC. Tell Projects' staff was very professional from the point of our initial communication until the job was finished. Zach, the project manager, was very attentive to my needs and made sure that I was completely happy with the final results. He never deviated from the original estimate, even when we had to make adjustments along the way. We now have a shower that my family loves. I highly recommend Tell Projects and look forward to using them again in my other home remodeling projects.

I hired Mark Ebhodaghe to remodel my small guest bathroom/powder room shower. It involved taking out old structure of the shower, redoing a pipe and then retiling the entire shower (7 ft by 2 by 3 by 3). I found him here on this app. He was puntual and responsive. He quoted me a great price for the work- $850. Once he demoed the old shower, turned out a pipe was needed to be redone, so he charged me another $350. He does work during the day on weekdays, not weekends. I was not happy with the fact that during demo my newly installed wallpaper was damaged, but mark understood I was not happy about it and was careful thereafter. Demo is messy. Overall I’m happy with the work. The shower looks beautiful, and the price was reasonable. Also Mark is trustworthy- he was left alone in the house for a while in at least 3 occasions, and all was fine. Also I had to get extra materials a couple of times and he went to floor and decor that’s not close to my house, which was nice of him. Couple of issues: he was a bit messy (more so than other workers I hired for my remodeling project) and there’s cement or caulk still in my bathroom that’s clung to floor tiles. There’s some kinda green paint that was tracked into the house on bottoms of workers shoes. When Mark told me job was done, I came home and realized the edges of the shower look really bad- rough, unfinished. Glass and paint uneven. But: Mark did come back and cleaned up our patio area and front room floor, and he touched up the edges of the shower and it ended up looking awesome in the end. So I think he was very responsive to issues as they came up and cared about making me happy. My recommendation to future customers is to be very clear about what you expect and to communicate frequently through the project so both you and Mark are happy. Thank you for a great job! The pics here of the dark blue and gray shower is from my project.
