    Expert Tips By

    This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

    Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

    A strong pre-hiring process can assist in steering clear of dishonest companies or designers who don't share your vision. Follow the steps in this section to help you make your company choice.

    Industry Credentials

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

    Licensure and Insurance

    While the Illinois state government licenses trades like plumbing, residential remodelers in the Land of Lincoln don't need a license. Different cities and counties can control their own requirements, so we recommend speaking with the Carol Stream city hall for more information.

    Photos

    Request a copy of the bathroom company's portfolio, which includes pictures from past remodels it's completed for homeowners. This is primarily so you can examine the caliber of a team's work. However, it could also spark inspiration for your own bathroom renovation or raise questions about what the team can do for your project.

    Consultation and Estimate

    You should always seek a written and 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 vision, goals, and expectations. We recommend getting estimates from at least three different contractors so you can compare pricing.

    Customer Reviews

    Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like Google, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, and Trustpilot. Many contractors have both positive and negative reviews. As you read each one, note how the contractor responds to dissatisfied customers. A good company will always work to make things right.

    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    Some more complex projects, like installing tankless water heaters or rewiring electrical systems, require subcontracting in many jurisdictions and will increase your overall cost. The average bathroom remodeling cost in Carol Stream ranges from $17,580 to $33,403, depending on the project's scope and type.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Carol Stream

    What's the difference between a bathroom renovation and a bathroom remodel?

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

    How long does a bathroom remodel take?

    It can take 2-30 days to redo a bathroom, depending on project scope. Before work begins, ask your contractor for a timeline estimate in writing.

    What part of a bathroom remodel is the most expensive?

    Generally, most homeowners find that adjusting a bathroom's floorplan is the most expensive part of a remodel. Most of the high labor costs come from adding or removing walls, a task that often requires subcontracting to other companies. However, hauling away old materials and changing fixtures will also contribute to the higher price tag.

    What leading bathroom design trends should I know about?

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

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

    To make the most of limited space, your bathroom remodeler might recommend any of the following design elements:
    • vertical cabinets
    • tall and narrow shelves
    • corner showers with glass doors
    • pedestal sinks/wall-mounted faucets
    • small-scale tile patterns
    • and a larger mirror above the sink/vanity
