The renovation experts at Need For Build break down what goes into the cost of remodeling a bathroom.
If you search the web for the cost of bathroom remodeling project, you will see numbers that vary drastically from website to website. The numbers they come up with are often based on size of the remodel and location.
The goal of this article is not to add to the noise. Instead of giving you another number that may or may not not reflect the plans of your remodel, this guide will break down the factors that go into the cost of a bathroom remodel.
Condition of the Bathroom
Scope of the Bathroom Remodel
The scope of work will be determined by how different your current space is from your desired outcome. The layout may remain the same for one bathroom and the remodeling project will only be replacing the current items with updated items. Another bathroom will be completely gutted, have walls moved and be fitted with a new tub, tile, shower, vanity and the complete works. This will require more demolition work which is factored into the price.
Sometimes a bathroom will even be extended or moved from one area to another. This can be considered a bathroom addition or a complete home remodel depending on the extent of the work.
Different materials may also affect the cost of labor because they require a different amount of labor to install. For example, penny tile will require more labor to install than 12” x 24” tile due to the intricate work necessary to place each small tile.
A reputable bathroom contractor may be known for higher quality work and charge more for it. Some contractors may have higher operating costs that enable them operate at a higher level. If a bathroom remodeling contractor is licensed, bonded and insured, they will factor those costs into their labor. Having proper licensing, bonding and insurance are always for the customers’ protection. These are some of things that influence the cost of labor.
Low Cost Can Get Expensive
As stated earlier materials will have different grades and price points. Everybody enjoys a good bargain but no one likes to find that something as important as a bathroom remodel had something low quality about it. Expect to pay a fair price for materials and labor. High quality materials generally last longer. A company that is compensated appropriately will have the budget to allocate the necessary time and labor to get the job done right.
