What Is The Approximate Cost Range I Should Prepare For?

This is a great question and it's got to have context before an answer will carry weight. 

Let's start with the most expensive first.

There are families who have invested in their forever home. They have the time to select their absolute favorite design features and finishes. They have waited for the right timing and they are ready to remodel their master bath or other large bathroom. These families will often spend between $45,000 and $70,000.

There are families who love their home but they aren't sure they're going to be there forever, despite no existing plans to sell. These families love quality, classy timeless looks and avoid hot trends that will be here today and gone tomorrow. These families choose a design-build firm to have everything done for them at a one-stop-shop. They select finishes that are durable and can take a lot of regular use. These families will often spend between $23,000 and $45,000 on a master bath or other large bathroom. Nothing extravagant and nothing cheap. 

There are families who love practicality and being a great steward of their resources. They value quality, but they know that they are shooting for mid-range prices, so they are moderate in their selections. These families typically spend $17,000 to $22,000 on small and medium sized bathrooms.

There are families who are seeking a partial remodel. They need a powder room spruced up with an updated vanity, countertop, sink and faucet. Or they need new shower waterproofing and tile, but they're keeping everything else. These partial bathroom remodels can take many forms and there are lots of combinations of desired scope. Most of these partial remodels cost between $4000 and $12,000.

Remember, these ballparks are the contract price with your contractor and your finish materials are in addition.

What Is The Timeline I Should Prepare For?

The timeline is dependent on many factors but here are a few general ideas. 

You can expect a partial bathroom remodel to take between one and three weeks, depending on the scope specified in your detailed line-item estimate. This includes powder rooms.

Small bathrooms are typically 5x7, 6x8, or some variation thereof. These small bathrooms can take two to four weeks to complete, assuming no special order custom finishes.

Master bathrooms start out at a rounded 10x10. These bathrooms can be much larger but we're just talking about the classic size and layouts. They will take anywhere from three to six weeks typically. 

Remember, these timelines are construction only and your design and collaboration occur beforehand and are not counted in these approximate timelines.

What Can Go Wrong and How Do You Avoid Change Orders?

There are always a few key things to look out for when preparing for a bathroom remodel, no matter how simple. Here are a few for your reference:

  1. Keep in mind that the bathroom has more moisture in it than any other room in the house. Watch for mold and mildew.
  2. Current or past leaks can contribute to dry rot of the framing which would need to be replaced.
  3. The seal around old toilets often goes bad, so there are tiny slow leaks that cause dry rot and disintegration of the subflooring which needs to be replaced. 
  4. San Diego bathroom remodelers near you should all be looking for pests too. We have a high concentration of termites and other pests in this area of the country. 

At any rate, if you open up walls, you may get more than you asked for. So what do we do to avoid change orders? First thing, we educate you along the way to keep you informed in advance as much as possible. Second, we execute a "demo-and-discovery" before we finalize your detailed line-item estimate so that your price includes all foreseeable work.

Our families love the demo-and-discovery process because it allows them to rest at ease, knowing that we've done our due diligence at every step.
