A bathroom remodeling is no longer a novelty.
It’s become a must for any homeowner.
And it’s one that should be considered before you decide to hire a bathroom remodeller.
A good way to find a bathroom overhauler is to check the directory of plumbing contractors in your area.
You can find many of them on Google.
Most have been around for decades.
And they’re good at what they do.
For example, we’ve all seen bathrooms in our homes and wondered if they can really repair them?
A better question would be, “Is it really necessary?”
It can be hard to gauge the quality of a bathroom renovation because the details can vary from bathroom to bathroom.
You’ll also have to get a license to do it, which could cost a fortune.
We spoke to one of the leading bathroom remodellers, Brian Fournier of Fourniers and Associates.
You should look at it like any other remodeling.
It depends on what the homeowner wants.
Brian Founier is a bathroom consultant, and he says you should take your time with it.
“I’d recommend looking at it as a project,” he says.
“There’s no rush to get started, and if you’re just getting started you’ll be in a hurry.
You want to make sure that the plumbing you’re going to be using is as good as it can possibly be.
So you should start with something that’s already been in place and you should do it properly.”
He says there’s no rule about how long you can expect a bathroom to be in operation.
“The answer is always be flexible,” he explains.
“That’s one of my keys to getting the best results out of your renovation.
You have to be flexible.”
You may have to spend some money on a renovation plan.
Fourniest says a $250,000 remodel can be done in under a year.
“You have to have the money to pay the plumbing, you have to buy the equipment, and you have a very good foundation for it,” he said.
The plumbing, which is a large, heavy, and complicated machine that can take up to three years to get right, can cost anywhere from $100,000 to $200,000.
It might not sound like much, but the plumbing company you choose can cost you millions more.
A big part of the cost of a remodeling bathroom is labor, says Fourniness.
He says most remodelers charge between $15,000 and $30,000 for labor.
The cost of plumbing, electrical, and other supplies can also be high.
Founiers says the average cost of remodeling a bathroom is around $5,000 per bathroom.
“It depends on the size of the bathroom and the level of renovation you’re doing,” he adds.
“If you’re looking to renovate your basement bathroom and you need to have a bathroom with three bathrooms, it might be $30 to $50,000.”
To get started with a remodel, you’ll need to know your budget and your goals.
You might want to start with a smaller renovation, or you might need to build a new bathroom to accommodate your family’s needs.
Brian recommends starting with a $50-an-hour remodel and working your way up to $1,000 an hour.
Once you have your budget, you should go to a plumbing company to get the right tools.
You don’t want to pay more for plumbing than you need.
“Make sure you have all the tools,” he advises.
“Once you have the right supplies, you can do any type of plumbing you need.”
Brian recommends looking at the following plumbing tools: • PVC pipes, or pipe with a hook and loop.
• T-bar, or a series of small pipe fittings that fit around the bottom of a shower head.
• NEMA 5-inch or 10-inch drill bits.
• Hose clamp.
• Tap-n-go screws.
• Phillips screwdrivers.
“To make it a little easier on the contractor, we like to make our own plumbing fixtures.
We do that with our own tools,” says Founiest.
“For example, you could use the bathroom sink as an example.
You could have your sink and sinkboard on a table, and then you could have a little bit of plumbing in the sink and have that on the table.”
To make the plumbing work as well as possible, you need the right equipment.
Foul walls can be the biggest hurdle.
“We like to get to every inch of the plumbing with a hammer, because that’s what we do on every job,” he points out.
Brian advises making sure you’re using the right parts.
“PVC pipes are usually much easier to install than the T-bars,” he explained.
“They’re much more easily removed.
You need to get everything flush with the outside of the pipe.
