It’s difficult to say what exactly goes into a bathroom remodel as they are customized to each client’s needs. Typically, it requires plumbing and electrical work along with a skilled woodworker to conduct the cabinetry and trim carpentry. If the remodel changes the position of walls it may require a framing carpenter, a drywall specialist and a painter. Experienced bathroom remodeling contractors will likely have the proper licenses and knowledge to do all phases of the job, or they may use reliable sub-contractors to handle particular aspects.
Why Remodel a Bathroom
There are a number of reasons to remodel a bathroom. The most obvious is when an older bathroom simply isn’t functioning properly. When plumbing and electric repairs have to be done several times per year, and the vanity is damaged, it may just be time to upgrade the entire room rather than continue having problems. Another reason is an older bathroom may be functioning as designed, but be period dated with a style you don’t like. Similarly, you may have found a great deal and bought a great house and you love everything about… except the bathroom.
What to Consider
The first consideration is the scope of the remodel. Changing to modern lights, painting and putting in a new floor is a fairly small undertaking. Installing a new vanity and toilet is relatively simple as well, if the job is done by someone experienced with the knowledge to do it right. Redesigning the room to move plumbing, installing a new tub or shower, or moving walls to steal space from an adjoining room become major projects that require more specialized knowledge and equipment.
How to Choose a Contractor
