Bathroom Renovation FAQs

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

The cost of a full bath remodel varies based on location, size, and many other factors. That being said, a small bathroom can cost between $8,000 and $12,000 for a complete makeover from top to bottom with mid-grade materials.

How long does a bathroom remodel take?

Your project time will always vary based on material availability, company schedule, and a few other factors. On average, the project will take 2-6 weeks when accounting for administrative tasks, but the work itself should only take 2-3 days. Sarah Nolen at Interiors Addict does a great job of explaining how long a bathroom reno really takes and why.

Why don’t you offer one day bath remodels?

While it is possible to systemize a workflow, there are some things that just can’t be rushed. In our experience, the notorious one day bathroom remodel is the perfect example of this. Quality work takes time. Our bathroom remodeling consultants double check every project site to ensure a job well done in each and every instance.

What is the cheapest way to remodel a bathroom?

Well, the answer to this questions depends on how handy you are. If you are confident in your ability to get the work done on your own, you can save quite a bit of money by doing it yourself. However, incorrect installation and placement or subpar materials can cause issues over time, which will eventually increase your overall project cost. Your best bet is to look for local bathroom contractors with low overhead and a solid customer base, so you can stay within your budget, but still receive quality work and materials.

What is the most expensive part of a bathroom remodel?

Generally, labor and markup are to blame for a large portion of your remodeling cost. The trick is to work with a company that is not greedy. Ideally, a quality job will be affordable for you, but also reasonable for your bathroom remodeling contractor to keep their company running smoothly. For more information, we highly recommend reading the IRC blog article on understanding the role of markup in your remodeling estimate.

What is the wet area?

You may hear this term as you are searching for local bath contractors. The “wet area” is the space where your tub or shower resides, including all fixtures. Many bathroom remodeling companies will only accept projects which include this zone, as it tends to be the most lucrative area. At IRC, we accept all projects, big and small.

Can I renovate a bathroom myself?

The short answer is yes. Just remember, bathroom contractors exist for a reason. If you only want to make a few minor upgrades and you know your way around a toolbox, you may be able to avoid paying for labor by doing it yourself. If you are not 100% confident in your abilities or you want your bathroom completely torn out and remodeled from floor to ceiling, we highly suggest hiring a professional bath contractor. You have probably heard this before, but with good reason. DIY projects gone wrong often end up costing even more time and money, whether right away or down the line.

If you decide to move forward on your own, we cannot stress enough – do your research. You can avoid a lot of pitfalls by watching a short video or reading an article for 5 minutes. Before you tear your bathroom down to the studs, we highly recommend reading Do It Yourself vs. Professional Bathroom Remodeling on The Spruce. The author does a great job of explaining the pros and cons of each side. If you still think you can swing it after that, you have our full support!
