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.

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 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 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 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.

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.

I hired Lilian and team to remodel 1.5 bathroom, starting with the 0.5. He was very easy to work with and flexible to start with the 0.5 one first and then move to the full bathroom. The quality of his and his team's work is excellent and I didn't have anything to complain. Of-course with bathroom remodel there are things you don't know to begin with and Lilian was very adjusting and flexible to change things a little as they go. Towards the end, we were having trouble finding a mirror that would fit the full bathroom, and Lilian was ok leaving that for a later date. All the days he came he was very punctual. Another thing that sets him apart from other contractors was his timely response to messages. That made my life so much easy as during the planning and initial phase of the project I could only actively respond to him during late evenings, and he would always promptly respond.

I’ll give 6 out of 5 stars for Alex if I could. I asked Alex to start with a small project first, he finished with very good quality. I loved his work, then asked him to work on two bathroom remodeling, including a complete renovation on master bathroom. He’s super on beautiful details, very communicative, easy to work with, punctual, and with very reasonable price. I have recommended him to all my friends and will definitely work with him again.

I've done my master bathroom remodel with Vasy's team and the project turned out really well. The materials used are the same or better as compared to other quotes I got which gives me confidence there won't be issues further down the road. The installation of the tile was also done to a high quality standard.

I worked with Farshad on my bathroom remodeling. He's very easy to communicate and very professional. He likes to put customers' needs in the first place and helped me take care of many other small works. He also kept everything clean when the project finished. I really liked the results and the quality of the work. Would love to work with him again in the future!

Design Kitchen and Bath is the best remodel/contracting company I've ever worked with. Vlad is a quality tradesman and excellent communicator. My wife and I decided to remodel our daylight basement 3/4 bath to a full bath with Japanese deep soaking tub and wet-room by taking over space from a rarely used adjacent sauna in our mid-century home. After meeting with several contractors and receiving more than six quotes through Thumbtack and BBB we hired DK&B. Our decision to move forward with DK&B was because Vlad was excited about our vision, explained what and how the project would unfold, and importantly he showed us that he recognized that this was our home, our time and money, and he expected nothing less than to make us happy and completely satisfied with our new bathroom. Vlad communicated all aspects of the job thoroughly to my wife and me; each day we were updated on what happened, and what was coming up, we were always in the loop and on the same page. Issues that needed input from drain and plumbing runs, electrical updates (rather than reuse what was there from a previous handyman special, to make it better and make it right), preferences on tile layout, trim details, and where to mount fixtures were always brought to our attention. DK&B always put our perspective as the homeowners at the forefront of the process from the very beginning through to the very end. When I had questions or change requests and concerns, Vlad listened to my wants and my whys and if he disagreed he listed his reasons. We always came to agreements, and I know our decisions made together made the bathroom better. Vlad never made me feel that I was wasting his time or ever made me feel guilty for being involved in my own home improvement. He encouraged our feedback and made my wife and me feel that we were equal partners in the build. I've done some remodel work myself (in fact I gutted and tiled this same shower four years earlier) but with two small kids I didn't have the time or the perfected tiling skills for that matter to make this the dream bathroom that we wanted. As I saw the work progress from demo to finish, everything was done to code, and with planning and attention to detail both within the walls and out, that the finished product is immaculate and I trust will last a lifetime. Vlad and his team are upbeat and happy - every day I could see the enthusiasm and satisfaction in a job well done - DK&B does NOT cut corners - and I could see and hear the excitement from the first meeting with Vlad about the vision to the final reality of having our dream bathroom. While any remodel project is a disruption, it was nonetheless a pleasure to have DK&B in our home. I will certainly hire DK&B again when the need arises, and I recommend them without hesitation. Thank you Vlad and Design Kitchen and Bath!
