When you moved in to your home, you may have thought about remodeling the bathroom, particularly if it seems outdated or boasts decor that trended about 20 years ago. Aesthetics aside, outdated bathrooms can lead to other issues as well.
An outdated bathroom could end up costing you in the long run, if you have leaky faucets or older pipes. A burst pipe is no fun, particularly if your bathroom happens to be on a second floor.
If you have a bathroom in need of an update, it might be time to think about remodeling it. A remodel may seem like a daunting task, but working with a trusted contractor like True Builders can help you ease your mind and relieve some stress. There are going to be costs associated with it, but if you’re proactive in avoiding potential issues with older bathrooms, you could instead spend that money to remodel it into the bathroom you’ve always wanted!
What is the Average Cost of a Bathroom Remodel & What Aspects Incur The Most Cost
According to Angie’s List, the cost of an average bathroom remodel ran about $11,364 in 2016. A survey cited by Angie’s List revealed that half of those surveyed incurred costs between $10,000 and $29,999 and over 30 percent indicated they paid more than $30,000 to remodel their bathrooms.
We will work with any budget to make sure you have the best bathroom possible.
Generally, a low-end remodel will run about $2,500, according to Angie’s List. Here’s a breakdown of what aspects incur the most cost when remodeling a bathroom. These estimates are provided by the National Kitchen and Bath Association:
- Cabinetry and hardware: 16 percent
- Faucets and plumbing: 14 percent
- Fixtures: 15 percent
- Installation: 20 percent
Other factors influencing a bathroom remodel cost include countertops, lighting, walls/ceilings, doors/windows, flooring, and design fees.
Time is another factor that can be hard to predict, but typically, expect a bathroom remodel to take three weeks or more. When you work with a contractor, open lines of communication are essential, and we will make sure to always keep you updated on our progress.
Ways to Alleviate Cost of a Bathroom Remodel
The cost may sound overwhelming to some, but there are ways to alleviate it or spread it out so it’s not such an upfront fee. You can consider taking the remodel in steps. It is probably best to update plumbing and other fixtures first, as those are also the most cost-efficient methods.
According to iSustainableEarth.com, a leaky faucet can end up wasting 7-10 gallons on a daily basis. That translates to 3,600 gallons per year!
When considering cost, it’s best to go with high-quality products. You don’t want to end up replacing something a few years down the road. We can help you pick out the highest quality products while keeping your budget in mind.
Additionally, a bathroom remodel provides one of the highest returns on investment, according to Angie’s List. A new, major update completed by a licensed contractor like True Builders can provide up to an 80 percent ROI!
