    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 help you avoid unethical companies or designers who don't share your vision. Apply 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 inquire about any accreditations and certifications it holds. Membership in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or similar organizations indicates the company's commitment 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 Carpentersville city hall for more information.

    Photos

    Ask for photos of previous bathroom remodels the team has completed for other homeowners. Reviewing these images allows you to verify the company's experience and closely evaluate the quality of their work. It could also spark ideas or questions about what design elements and improvements the crew could include in your project.

    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 crew can inspect your bathroom and get a sense of your goals, vision, and expectations. We recommend getting estimates from at least three different contractors so you can compare costs.

    Customer Reviews

    Before you hire a bathroom remodel, check its online reputation using sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, Trustpilot, and Google. Most companies have both positive and negative reviews. As you go through each one, pay close attention to how the contractor reacts to dissatisfied customers. Reputable contractors will always strive to make things right.

    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    See standard remodel costs for different projects in the table below: 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 Carpentersville

    How is a bathroom renovation different from a bathroom remodel?

    A bathroom remodel is more labor-intensive than a renovation. A remodel involves replacing, adding, or removing aspects of the bathroom, whereas a renovation involves making cosmetic tweaks to existing elements. 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 complete.

    What is the most expensive part of a bathroom remodel?

    The most expensive part of a bathroom remodel is altering the floorplan. Demolishing fixtures, adding/removing walls, and disposing of old materials all have above-average labor costs.

    Can I customize my bathroom design, or do remodel companies offer pre-set packages?

    Yes. Many bathroom remodelers offer preset packages for smaller-scale projects, letting you update fixtures like vanities, tubs, or showers without customizing every detail. Multiple Carpentersville companies can even retrofit new fixtures directly over your old ones, saving money and time. Specific services will vary from company to company, but they all aim to blend convenience with flexibility.

    What environmentally-friendly options can I consider for my bathroom remodel?

    A number of eco-friendly options are available for you to consider. Talk with your contractor about the following upgrades:
    • products made from recycled wood or plastic
    • dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets to reduce water use
    • eco-friendly floors like cork or bamboo
    • greywater systems to filter and reclaim water
    • low or no-VOC paint
    • and LED lights to cut power consumption
