    Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

    To weed out contractors that go against your principles or lack local credibility, it's important to keep a strong pre-hiring process. By following the steps in this section, you'll be on the right track to choosing the best company for you.

    Industry Credentials

    Determine how many years a bathroom remodeling company has been in business and how many projects it's completed. Also inquire about any certifications and accreditations it has. Membership in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or similar organizations can show the company's commitment to its services.

    Licensure and Insurance

    In California, bathroom remodelers need a B-2 Residential Remodeling Contractor license from the California Department of Consumer Affairs. This license covers a variety of different remodeling needs, but it doesn't let contractors modify load-bearing structures. Depending on your needs, a company might need to subcontract some tasks to other crews with different licenses.

    Photos

    Next, ask the bathroom company for a portfolio. Some contractors print physical copies, while others keep a running webpage detailing their past projects. Thoroughly evaluate each photo to assess the quality of the crew's work. You might even discover some design ideas for your own bathroom renovation.

    Consultation and Estimate

    You should always seek an itemized estimate for your project costs. The estimate should be based on an in-person consultation with a company representative. This way, the technicians can view your bathroom and get a sense of your expectations, vision, and goals. To maximize your value, we suggest getting at least three different written estimates and comparing them head-to-head to find the best deal.

    Customer Reviews

    Before you hire a bathroom remodel, check its online reputation using sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, Google, and Trustpilot. As you go through past customers' experiences, pay close attention to how the company responds to negative feedback. Reputable contractors will pursue a satisfactory resolution wherever possible.

    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    The average cost to remodel a bathroom in Lake Elsinore ranges from $16,970 to $32,244, depending on the project's scope and type. Some more complex projects, like mounting tankless water heaters or rewiring electrical systems, require subcontracting in many jurisdictions and will increase your overall cost.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Lake Elsinore

    How is a bathroom renovation different from a bathroom remodel?

    A bathroom remodel is more labor-intensive than a renovation. A remodel involves adding, removing, or replacing aspects of the bathroom, whereas a renovation involves making cosmetic tweaks to existing fixtures. For example, installing a new shower is considered a remodel. Restoring a floor is considered a renovation.

    How long does it take to redo a bathroom?

    A bathroom remodel's duration will hinge on your vision for the space. Most projects take between a few days to a month to finish.

    What leading bathroom design trends should I know about?

    Today's homeowners are preferring luxury design elements. Top trends include authentic wood cabinetry, high-end natural stone tiles, bold paint colors, and polished marble countertops. Look to interior design websites and magazines for bathroom remodeling ideas.

    If I have a small bathroom, how can I maximize my space and make it feel larger?

    If you have a small bathroom, consider using vertical wall cabinets or tall, narrow shelves for storage. Other ways to maximize space or make your bathroom feel larger include:
    • small-scale tile patterns
    • a large mirror above the sink/vanity
    • corner showers instead of tubs
    • glass shower doors
    • and pedestal sinks or wall-mounted faucets

    Do I have to leave my home during the remodeling process?

    You generally won't have to leave your home for a bathroom remodel. Even if the crew must turn off water, they might be able to do it on a small scale so you can still use other bathrooms. If you have mobility issues, young kids, a work-from-home job, or if the bathroom is the only location in your home to bathe or shower, be sure to plan with friends and family.
