  • Age of bathroom plays a large role in overall costs of a bath remodel. Homes with original bathrooms built in the 1950s likely require additional demolition work such as removal of mud set tile and plaster or stucco walls, taking entire bathroom down to studs, replacing / sistering joists, all new plumbing & electric, new sub flooring, new green board (drywall). Given the rise in the cost of building materials couple with labor shortages this may lead to sticker shock.
  • If you have an older home with a bathroom that’s been remodeled it’s likely the above factors would still apply. That’s because in the previous remodel they likely tiled on top of tile instead of doing the hard work to get to and replace the guts of the bathroom. In the end replacing the old galvanized steel water supply lines is worth it. Once you see the insides of these pipes you’ll agree.
  • Depending on location and final scope of work permits may be required, which add cost and time to the project.

Notes:

  • Existing fan, recessed lights, drywall, sub flooring, electrical and plumbing to stay as is.
  • Due to the narrow width of the shower Client is deciding to use a shower rod instead of a glass enclosure.
  • Includes new Durock backer board where tiles are installed and a new rubber liner with poured concrete to build out the shower pan.
