    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. Use the steps in this section to help you determine the best contractor.

    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 certifications and accreditations it has. Membership in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or similar organizations can show the company's devotion 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 Grafton city hall for more information.

    Photos

    Next, ask the bathroom company for a portfolio. Some contractors have 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'll ultimately hire a remodeling contractor based on itemized estimates. While some contractors offer online estimates, little compares to an in-person consultation. This way, you can discuss your goals, get the necessary measurements taken, and meet the crew. To maximize your value, we suggest getting at least three different quotes and comparing them side by side to find the best deal.

    Customer Reviews

    Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Google, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, and Trustpilot. While you read past customers' experiences, pay close attention to how the company addresses negative feedback. A trustworthy contractor will pursue a satisfactory resolution wherever possible.

    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    Some more complex projects, like mounting tankless water heaters or rewiring electrical systems, require subcontracting in many jurisdictions and will increase your overall cost. The average bathroom remodeling cost in Grafton ranges from $16,797 to $31,915, depending on the project's scope and type.

    Type of Bathroom RemodelAverage CostAverage Time
    Half-bath remodel$2,000-$5,0005–7 days
    Full bath remodel$6,000-$15,00010–14 days

    Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Grafton

    How is a bathroom remodel different from a bathroom renovation?

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

    How long does a bathroom remodel take?

    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 are the bathroom design trends?

    Grafton residents are increasingly favoring opulent, luxurious aesthetics for their bathrooms. Features like polished marble vanities, real wood cabinets, bold paint colors and high-end stone tile can make your space feel more elegant, and the look might not cost as much as you think. However, just because something is fashionable doesn't mean it'll fit your unique vision. We recommend turning to websites, magazines, and your contractor's in-house designers for personalized ideas.

    Do remodeling companies offer preset packages for smaller-scale jobs?

    Yes. If all you need is a new shower, tub, vanity, or another fixture, your bathroom company might offer you a preset package for less cost. Some contractors can even retrofit new fixtures right on top of your old ones, saving time and maximizing value.

    Are there any eco-friendly or sustainable bathroom remodeling options available?

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