How To Redo Bathroom

Bathroom remodel and bathroom additions have the highest return on investment of nearly any other home project, which makes perfect sense because who doesn’t need another bathroom or want that bathroom to be nice. When shopping for homes, buyers are looking for how many bedrooms and baths a home has, not kitchens or laundry rooms. But bathrooms can be expensive when you think of new plumbing, new bathtub, new toilet, new floor, new paint, new sink, new sink base…the list goes on. Even though you know you’ll make all this money back at closing, it’s hard not to want to do this work yourself. Everyone is not a handyman. Many of us think we are, many of us know we’re not, and still many more know what they’re doing but don’t want to mess with plumbing or electricity. Depending on the type of remodel, you can save a serious amount of money if you can handle the work. Consider these ideas before you do anything. Professional Look vs. Cheap Look If you can manage all the work yourself, can you manage to make it look professional? We have all been in bathrooms where the tiles are cut funny, the toilet isn’t level, or some other noticeable oddity catches our attention. Ask yourself if you can live with a job that looks less than professional. Need to find a pro for your bathroom remodel?Find Pros Living with the Remodel If you have ever done a project yourself before, you know that your eyes (and your frustration) always return to the places where you made a mistake or places where you are unsatisfied. This can bother many people, and if you are one of those who can’t stand to look at your failures every day or can’t stand imperfections then you need to consider this before deciding to do the project on your own. Product Comparison & Good Deals Bathroom Remodelers know many people in their industry. From people who sell fixtures to tubs to tile to sinks, they have been in this business long enough that they know who has the best stuff at the best prices, and who is willing to cut them a deal. As a homeowner and someone not in the industry, you will not be privy to these deals or this information, and you may be paying more just for the material than what the contractor is charging, even after his markup. Consider Your Value If you only have one bathroom, remodeling it yourself can put a pretty big stress on the family, so you better have a good marriage to be able to handle this. Don’t forget that your time is valuable, every second of it. This remodel can mean that you don’t get to spend as much time with your children or your spouse. You won’t have as much time to do the things you love because you will be constantly thinking of grout and tile patterns. These remodels can take over your life, plus they never seem to be finished. Bathroom remodel costs are also notorious for adding up quickly. Leave Bathroom Remodels to the Pros Remodeling a bathroom is just too big of a project and too important to do yourself. The money you could save does not justify having a bathroom that looks unprofessional and ate up most of a month of your life. Some professional bathroom remodels take over a month, and this is by a team of people who know what they’re doing working ten hour days. Bathrooms are such high-value rooms that the smart money is to get the highest quality job you can afford so you can make that money back at closing. Yet there are a few places where you can save money down the line. Click this link if you want to read more about working with bathroom contractors. Need to find a pro for your bathroom remodel?Find Pros Places to Save Money If you are not doing a total remodel, or even if you are, there are still a few places where you can save a little money on your bathroom remodel. Buy your own fixtures—If you are not using standard fixtures in your bathroom, ask the contractor if it is okay to purchase them yourself. Contractor usually mark the items up 10% over retail for their time to find and retrieve the fixtures. You can save this money by getting them yourself. In many cases, the communication between contractor and client gets frayed and the wrong fixtures go in. Buying them yourself allows the contractor to be certain that he is installing exactly what you want. Remove the Tile—If you are going to replace the floor, ask your contractor if you can save some money by tearing out the floor yourself. Typically, contractors are happy to comply with this one because it saves them time and allows them to do more jobs. But check with your contractor first. You bathroom floor might be different for some reason, and he might want some insurance in knowing that you will do a good and thorough job. Painting and Tiling—If you just need a new coat of paint or are wanting to lay some tile, even if you are doing a total bathroom remodel with a contractor, have him leave these items to you. If you are not a good painter, there will just be a lot of cleanup, but you can get there. Tiling can drive you crazy, but if you start by practicing on an old table, you can get pretty good before your do your floor. Final Thoughts Some projects can be learned or tried that won’t affect the appearance of your home or its function, for example building your own shelving unit for the garage or a brick patio. While these things may not look as good as they can, they will still do the job and look better than nothing at all. Bathrooms and kitchen are too tied to function and style to have them be anything but top shelf. Leave these rooms to the pros. Do the work yourself in areas where the remodel can be a little less than perfect. No Comments Yet You can be the first to comment!

michelle charleville More than 1 year ago My master bathroom had only a toilet and a sink plus it had carpet. I wanted it to be a full bathroom so there would be two full bathrooms in my house. The entire cost, which included all of the materials, re-plumbing everything because we were adding a shower unit so more plumbing, the permits needed to do the work, electrical and permits, flooring, drywall, painting, new light fixtures, fan, vent cover for the HVAC, and the general contractor was $8,300. Of course this also included new flooring in my kitchen and laundry room. I thought that was pretty reasonable considering I have a whole new bathroom. Wanda Messer More than 1 year ago What state are you in Diane Powell More than 1 year ago Well sis, since you got the whole thing done for 8,300, which included new flooring in your kitchen and laundry room, and my husband has already shelled out over 7,000 on my master bathroom remodel, that he and my nephew are doing, and he’s still not finished after a month and a half, you got a dang good deal! I need a contractor and a divorce attorney, asap! olivia timmons More than 1 year ago what state is this ? Who is the contractor and what’s his phone number.
