1.20 Cost of bathroom remodel?

Q. We live in Northern California. Looking to remodel bathroom (about 50 sqft) with new everything (cabinets, tub, tile) with mid-to mid-high cost materials. Not moving location of items (tub, sink, toilet will remain in same location) and not expanding. However, want to replace plumbing in the walls. Looking for a range. We have hired a contractor who came back with an astronomical figure and we need to verify. Thanks.

A. For a bathroom remodel as you describe - mid to high range 50 square feet would cost just under $10k in northern california.. To run the numbers yourself - Another way to look at it is if a contractor is just removing everything and replacing would take about 7 "man days" of work or about 60 hours. Add to that the cost of materials which can easily range from $1500 to $5,000 depending on the type of tiles, tub, vanity etc. So if the contractor is charging $75 an hour and a 20% markup on materials and your materials cost $3000..then the total would be about $4,500 for labor, $3000 for the materials and $600 for market up or a total of $8,100. Since it is a small job..sometimes the hourly rate and mark up is higher. The best way/only way to get comparisons is to have other contractors visit and bid on the project..make sure you give them a DETAILED list of everything you want done including manufacturer name and model number for all the materials to be used. A good resource for a quick bathroom remodeling cost estimate is You can get some ideas on how to find, hire and work with a contractor from the book The Contractor Selection Workbook at Good luck

1.20 I need major bathroom remodeling help. My contractors screwed up the job :(?

Q. I hired a company thru Service Magic to remodel my hall bathroom. I had them tear down the walls and take out all of the existing tiles. I purchased marble tiles for the shower and glass tiles to be used as a border. After they "completed" the job I took a look at what they installed. The border tile goes in and out. So if you slide your hand across it, your hand goes in a wave motion. I"m trying to explain this to the contractors and they are telling me that all glass tiles are installed this way...??? They are saying because it's flexible it causes it to go in and out. Please help me. Why did this happen. What can I say to them to make them understand that it was not installed properly?

A. You need to stand up to them! They are taking you for a fool and think that they can just do a horrible job and still get paid. You need to stand your ground and tell them they did a bad job and it needs to be re-done or they will not get paid. If they say no or challenge you then you an take them to court, THEY messed up, you did nothing wrong. Good luck!

1.20 Bathroom Remodeling....?

Q. We are in the process of remodeling our bathroom and I am wondering if it is possible to put in an old style claw foot tub?? Are there any alternatives available that would fit better through a doorway?? Also we were looking into jet/spa tubs and a friend said something about a remodeling tub that comes in pieces and is better for installing in existing homes. I can't seem to find these and am wondering if anyone knows anything about it. Thank you so much!! Hope someone can help with a first time diy!!

A. You need to measure your doorway and the size of the tub to determine what will fit. You really shouldn't have a problem if you stick to a standard size, but speak to your plumber or contracter. Here is a popular company that your friend is talking about with comments to consider. There are a couple of others out there, but I forgot their names.

1.20 What makes the bathroom remodeling cheaper?

Q. Could anyone tell me how to remodel my bathroom in medium budget.

A. In bathroom remodeling Cabinets are one of the biggest parts of the budget, they will cost around 34% of your total cost. So, the type and quality of cabinets you select will affect your total costs. Not surprisingly, fixtures and fittings account for a high cost percentage in the bathroom. Expense for fixtures and fittings will vary depending on the brand, type of materials, and array of products you select. You should also concentrate on the tiles design, quality. In bathrooms, installation accounts for nearly a quarter of the total cost. If you're looking to cut corners, this is probably not the place to do it.

1.20 Bathroom Walls for tiling - Bathroom remodeling?

Q. We just started remodeling our Bathroom with my husband. And we are concerned about walls. When we removed the original, old tile, behind it we found more cement and behind that, a wired mesh. The upper section of walls do not have any kind of mesh, but simple a painted dry wall. We are kind of concerned about this mesh. Should we replace it by dry wall? Or do something else? Or how should we prepare those walls for laying tile? Does this wired mesh needed? by the way. We are doing complete remodeling. We will change everything there.

A. What you have is a mud wall designed for tile, this is what we did in the old days. if it is not all broken up tile over it. If it is bad, pull off and get ready made concrete board screw it to the walls (after removing old) and tile away.

Bathroom Remodeling

 Remodeling - Bathroom Remodeling A bathroom remodel in days past was actually a simple affair -- simply replace worn out tiles with new ones, exchange your cracked sink for one in the same color and if you were feeling particularly extravagant, install a bath tub in basic white or cream. These days, it's very possible that you will exceed your bath remodel budget with the staggering range in bathroom fittings and accessories. Remember that the bathroom is first and foremost a functional room. If it fails to offer continuity and convenience, then you will soon find that your expensive fittings get in the way, rather than make life convenient.

 home remodeling contractor in Shreveport, Louisiana A brisk invigorating shower is the only way to start the day. Installing the right kind of shower for your size of bathroom can mean greater functionality and convenience. If you are restricted by the size of your bathroom, you may find that a detachable shower or a tub-shower combo if you have the space for a tub, is the right choice for you. Showers themselves are not restricted to a single size or angle, or even a single unit at all. Newer dual shower head systems allow you to direct your shower at any part of the body through the presence of two separate shower heads that are connected to a single water line. So, if your back is killing you after a long day at work, angle the shower head directly to your back, and relax!

Of all the fixtures that you could include in your bathroom remodel, a bath tub is the one that will add the highest value to your home. The basic wall to wall model in white or cream is still the popular choice of American home owners. If you are looking at a cast iron alcove tub, your bathroom model will include reinforcing the floor to support the weight of the tub. If you have a smaller bathroom, a corner tub that can be triangular or in other shapes, fitted into a corner can give you the luxury of a tub, while still leaving you with plenty of space. Free standing tubs can be placed anywhere in the room, and they look especially grand while installed in the middle of a bathroom. The claw footed antique style is still a must in classic bathrooms, while sleek granite and marble stand alone tube are perfect for sophisticated baths. If you desire a cast iron claw footed tub, your bath tub remodeling will have to include floor buttressing.
