Teknik Bathroom Remodel San Diego Customer Reviews

Let's face it; people are wary about construction contractors taking advantage of them. 

Whether it is poor quality craftsmanship, horrible customer service, or contractors who take your money and run, you have reason to worry. 

I mean, are you really comfortable leaving just anyone in your home while you go to work or if you have to run errands?

You can feel 100% at peace with us!

Teknik has been in business for over 20 years and has excellent customer reviews to back up its claims.

All of the San Diego Bathroom Remodel reviews rave about owner Kevin and the Teknik team's quality of craftsmanship, customer service, and the value they received for their money.

You rarely find a company that can give quality and customer service while also keeping the prices down, but Kevin uses his years of experience to save time and money. 

All customer reviews in Google, Houzz, HomeAdvisor, Yelp, and Better Business Bureau give Teknik 5 stars or top marks. 

You may say, well, maybe that's because there are only a few reviews? But, if you look closer, you will find over 50+ five-star customer reviews across multiple platforms. 

Teknik is legit! Think about all of the horror stories you've heard over the years about bad contractors. 

We are in a day of social media where everyone is connected and can quickly leave a review for poor business services. 

Let's be honest; it is unheard of to find this many positive reviews about a construction company.

Why would you potentially set yourself up for the headaches and stress of dealing with another contractor without top customer reviews when you can call and get a free estimate from Teknik today?

Meet with the client

Next, we set up a time to meet with you to further discuss your bathroom remodel. This could include designing your bathroom remodel, if needed. 

Just using us to help you design your dream bathroom can save you a lot of money.

Designers can charge as much as $200 per hour, without regard to what you can afford and how much it will cost after labor and materials are factored in.

To help with the design process, we start with using Houzz. This professional platform is used by contractors who post pictures of final projects and tag the prices.

This can help you decide on materials, including colors and styles, and tailor the design to your tastes

If you choose Teknik for your San Diego Bath Remodel, you will use Houzz to help us understand what you like by creating a wish list.

This wish list includes things that are must-haves in the bathroom and things you hope to have. It is not uncommon to be torn between two options for tile or paint colors. 

Don't worry; we'll narrow it down in the end. 

Be aware that our design process comes with a heavy up-front time commitment. We get to know your bathroom well, including detailed measuring and x-rays of your walls to understand what we're dealing with underneath. 

This design process helps us avoid surprises so the rest of the process can run smoothly and efficiently.

Provide a Preliminary Estimate

Once the design work is done, we create a detailed preliminary estimate. This includes everything on your wish list, with low and high estimates based on needs and wants.

We provide a breakdown of costs, including the materials and labor involved to complete a bathroom remodel San Diego.

Your flooring, colors, fixtures, and other bathroom details will be in the estimate.

We'll go over it together to make sure nothing is missed and provide you a timeline of how long your bathroom remodel should take.

Our job is to ask the questions you don't know to ask. You don't know what you don't know. But Kevin does

Remodeling is a combination of art and science.

The benefit of choosing Teknik is the over 20 years of experience we bring to the meeting table.

It allows us to listen and hear what you need and then go over opportunities you may not know about.

Our process and close attention to detail leads us to the best possible results. Most clients don't know what they want; Teknik has over 20 years of experience asking the right questions and providing good information to help people get what they really want.  

We regularly hear, "wow, no one told me that or asked me that before!" This is what sets Teknik apart from our bathroom remodelers in San Diego.

We pay attention to the details and help you bring your vision to life - even if you don't know what that vision is!

The Contract

Once you've decided that Teknik is the San Diego bathroom remodeler for you, it's time to sign the contract. 

The contract details the cost, including materials and labor. Another reason to choose Teknik? We do not overuse subcontractors!

We want you to trust us completely, so you'll see the same faces every day of your bathroom remodel. 

Some people don't feel comfortable leaving their home while strangers work.

You'll see the same warm and friendly faces and get to know our employees by name, so you can feel confident in leaving us alone in your home if needed.

The contract also details the timeline, beginning with ordering the materials needed for your bathroom remodel in your San Diego home.

Most affordable fixtures and plumbing will arrive within four weeks, and we can get started.

However, higher-end fixtures and materials can take at least four weeks, up to a few months, depending on where they are ordered and their point of origin.

Regardless, we set a realistic timeline based on our knowledge of the items and where they're ordered from.

Our completion rate is 99% accurate, with many projects completed ahead of schedule.

The Bathroom Remodel San Diego Project Begins

Now is the part we know you're waiting for - the project to begin!

Once all the materials are in stock, we are officially ready to get your bathroom remodel underway.

With so much work done upfront, we expect this part of the process to go smoothly. Kevin, who you know well by now, is not only the owner and estimator; he's also the contractor overseeing your bathroom remodel.

Unlike the big guys, who use subcontractors and not employees like Teknik, Kevin can solve any problem that arises on the spot.

No waiting for someone to get back to you.

And because we don't start tearing apart your bathroom with any unknowns, we don't expect much to come up. But if it does, Kevin has it handled!

The result is on-time completion that sticks to your agreed budget, and you become a happy client (but we suspect you'll already be satisfied with the process before we finish the project).

We keep our promises, so we keep our customers. 

It's the Teknik way, and we don't expect you to settle for anything less.

How Much Does a San Diego Bathroom Remodeling Cost?

The average cost for a San Diego bath remodel can vary greatly due to a number of factors. Bathroom remodels start at $17,000 but could be $75,000 or more. Why the wide range in numbers?

Consider what goes into the price for a bathroom remodel in San Diego:

  • The size of your bathroom is one of the biggest factors determining the cost of your bathroom remodel. Adding a new vanity, replacing tile and flooring, repainting, and all the details for your new bathroom need to be considered.
  • The list of supplies could be short or long, depending on the project's scope. The more materials needed and the higher the quality, the more expensive the remodel will be: Tile, Bathtub, Toilet, Cabinetry, Countertops, Sink and Shower Fixtures, or Shower Glass.  We've even installed towel warmers in some bathrooms!  Click here for a list of must-haves.
  • Is it a guest bath, half bath, or a master? Large or small. Will it have a shower only or a bathtub and a shower (or only a toilet)
  • Complete remodel vs. Partial remodel 
    Is the bathroom being gutted and rebuilt from scratch, or are you just painting the cabinets and updating fixtures?
  • Labor cost:
    The more your remodel needs, the more employees we need to complete your project on time.
  • Permits
    In order for your San Diego bathroom remodel to be up to code, permits may be required.

If you're getting quotes from other contractors (and we encourage you to!), make sure the bids include supplies, labor, and all the details. 

This way, you can make the best decision for your budget and your vision.

How Long Does It Take to Remodel A Bathroom In San Diego?

Most bathroom remodels take an average of 2 to 8 weeks, but yours could take longer depending on the scope of work and number of bathrooms we're remodeling.  Obviously, mulitple bathrooms could take longer.

Click here for some valuable time-saving tips.

Our planning phase is highly detailed to avoid surprises during your bathroom remodel.

Once the contract is signed, we will order the supplies, which could take several weeks to arrive. 

If you choose to work with Teknik for your San Diego bathroom remodel, you won't be in the dark about how long the process will take.

Once the project gets underway, we can complete it according to the timeline provided in your contract.

How to Remodel a Bathroom on a Budget in San Diego County

If your budget doesn't work with a bathroom remodel done by the pros at Teknik, you may want to tackle it to reduce your costs. With housing prices and costs to remodel what they are in San Diego, your average budget and costs for a bathroom remodel can go far.

Here are some things to consider if you want to remodel your San Diego bathroom on a budget:

  • Retain and refurbish as much as you can. If you have to get new materials, use inexpensive alternatives instead. Consider vinyl flooring instead of natural wood, laminate or quartz counters instead of granite, or faux-stone tile backsplashes.
  • If you have a wood floor and don't want to go to the expense of replacing it, consider painting it with protective enamel.
  • Instead of removing your bathtub or shower, consider refinishing it instead. You can try the DIY approach or hire a professional, but this will be cheaper than replacing it entirely. You can also do touch-ups if the surface isn't too bad or yellowed, using products specifically made for the job.
  • Update your cabinets with new hardware and upgrade your faucet for a fresh look with little cost. Throw on a new coat of paint, and it looks new for a fraction of the cost.
  • If the toilet has seen better days, consider installing a new one yourself rather than hiring a plumber. Today's toilets require few hookups, and the most challenging part is physically removing the old and replacing it with a new toilet.
  • If you love the idea of a professionally built custom tile shower but hate the cost, consider a prefabricated shower unit instead. You may have to pay a professional to remove the old and install the new, but you'll save big on the prefabbed model.
