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.

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. 

Reach out the best bathroom remodelers near you to start planning your project, assemble a team and get cost estimates.

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 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.

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.

We had Apex do a partial bathroom remodel--installing durock, subway tiles, grout, and plumbing fixtures around an existing bathtub. Carlos was very accessible and always contacted me quickly with answers to any questions I had. His team was always on time and worked steadily to get the job done. The bathroom looks great and we are very pleased with the job--It was nice working with them!

Hiring a contractor to do a complete bathroom remodel can be intimidating. You don't want to overpay and you don't want to do it for cheap and have it look terrible at the end. I got about 6 different estimates from different companies and went with CCH Construction. They came in at right about the price point I expected to pay. I worked with Luis from the estimate through the construction. He was professional and responsive via text throughout the whole process. The project took 5 days with me basically working from home 10 feet away from my bathroom. They kept the door closed when they could, kept everything neat and tidy and cleaned up at the end of each day. MY BATHROOM LOOKS AMAZING!! I can't believe I lucked out picking CCH Construction to remodel my bathroom. There was nothing intimidating about working with them. They did such a fantastic job!! If you are having any sort of hesitation hiring a contractor to work on a project in your home, just hire these guys.

Jose with Brandon contractor was fantastic. Jose and his team submitted the most competitive and thorough bid out of all the competition and proved to be very flexible with timing too. I elected to purchase all the supplies for my bathroom remodel and Jose did everything to help me in that process. Couldn't be happier with the final product.

OCJ construction did an amazing job on my bathroom remodel! They were professional, friendly, and the crew completed my job faster than the projected timeline! After getting 6 estimates I chose OCJ because they gave the best quote and could begin working on the project quickly. They did excellent quality work and I would definitely contact them for future projects. Thanks Oscar and crew!

I hired CCH Construction to do a complete remodel of my dated master bathroom and partial remodel of my guest bathroom. From the beginning, Marvin and his team were extremely responsive and quickly addressed any questions I raised or concerns I had. They also listen to what I wanted. An extremely hardworking crew, it only took them approximately a day and a half day to complete the partial renovation my guest bathroom — i.e., demo and removal of existing vanity and mirrors/medicinal cabinets, drywall repair, installation of a new vanity (to include conversion from a single to double sink and installation of tile missing from under the prior vanity) lighting installation, and painting. My master bathroom, on the other hand, was a complete gut job from floor to ceiling, and even with a task of this magnitude it only took them approximately 5 days to complete. The team arrived on time every day and got right to work—they didn’t waste time. I found the entire crew to be efficient, detail-oriented, and meticulous. They were so efficient that I added a few additional odd jobs (e.g., installation of a new exhaust fan in my half bathroom and drywall repair in my kitchen). They worked these extra jobs into the schedule and quickly completed each one. On top of everything, the pricing for the work that was done was extremely reasonable. And there were no hidden or surprise costs!!! The price that was quoted from the beginning didn’t change (unless of course I decided to add a new job). In sum, the crew did a phenomenal job. The end results exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend this company and would hire them again.

Mustafa and his team did a great job remodeling our guest room bath and basement bathroom. We were impressed with the regular communication and the promptness, as well as the quality of the work. Mustafa proved his trustworthiness and reliability, as well as his patience as we went through the design process. He was the only contractor who came out to the house (out of several) who offered additional ideas on how to improve our bathroom (making the shower larger, for example) and he and his teammate Faustina were very pleasant to work with. They completed the job in a timely manner and were respectful of other areas of the house. Highly recommend Potomac Kitchen and Bath. Thank you for a great experience!

MONOVA gave us a quote for our master bathroom remodel project. We agreed and then they sent us a material list. We used that to procure the material, hardware etc. that matched our taste. The work was performed in a very professional way. The tile installation is a true work of art and we could not be happier with the results. Every day the foreman came to check on progress. During the demo stage we were pleased on how clean and comprehensive the crew was.

We were so lucky to find Jose. Our previous contractor installed our shower incorrectly. Jose and his crew were able to come and fix the problem and did an awesome job waterproofing and tiling the shower as well as installing the sliding shower door. He provided recommendations to us along the way which we accepted and incorporated in the project. He and his crew were extremely professional and the quality of their work is awesome. I would recommend hiring Sosa General Contractor, LLC for your bathroom remodeling project!

First off: great quality. I don't think I could have asked for a better realization of my plans for my bathroom remodel, which included extensive tile work and construction of a new closet. Pricing was reasonable; they were in the middle of the estimates that I got. That being said, there are a couple of negatives. The schedule was quoted for ten days, but it took sixteen. I did need to take half of one of the days originally scheduled to go into the office to support a client meeting, but a week's extra labor time to finish seemed excessive to me. Especially since after the original two weeks were finished, I had limited flexibility at work and needed to push work off to weekends. All told, with my restrictions at work, it took an extra two weeks beyond what was expected. Part of the problem was punctuality: workers were frequently late, so less got done each day. I also asked to keep a couple of pieces from the demo of the original bathroom that I never got. Overall, I would recommend this contractor if you have a reasonably flexible schedule. They truly do beautiful work, and I'm ultimately very happy with how my bathroom turned out. My designs were executed very nicely. I was just a little disappointed that it took so long.

Our experience with these guys has been fantastic! We hired them to remodel our kitchen and bathroom and it all went smooth from the beginning to the end. They were very respectful and professional, and arrived timely and cleaned up when they were done every day. Marvin is very knowledgeable and was very helpful in giving us advice on anything we didn't know, and he cared for us to be satisfied with the result and for things to look impecable. Also, they have been very responsive during the entire process, and their quotes are incredibly fair for the excellent quality of their work. Before choosing them we contacted several companies, and CCH Construction was the clear winner (while some of the others wouldn't even show up when they said they would or sent a quote after saying they would). I'm so glad we found them and definitely look for them again in the future!

I originally hired LD Home Improvement to completely remodel 2 bathrooms (1 master with tub and 1 guest with standing shower). Leonardo and his team did an absolutely excellent job! They are very self sufficient, they ask only necessary questions, work carefully and diligently, most days I was at work and left them keys to work in the house all on their own without a single worry. They have the patience and the care to do do the job the best way it can be done. Since then I have hired them to do multiple other projects around the house and have not been happier with results! I highly recommend LD Home Improvement for any and all house projects - I have certainly found my one and only contractor for life! Thanks, Leo, for all your hard work and dedication!
