    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 unethical companies or designers who don't share your vision. Follow the steps in this section to help you select the right business.

    Industry Credentials

    Ask each contractor about how long it's been remodeling bathrooms and how many projects it's completed. You should also ask what trade group memberships the team has. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is just one organization offering continuing education programs and certificates for remodeling professionals.

    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 Wheaton city hall for more information.

    Photos

    Most bathroom contractors maintain running portfolios with pictures of completed projects. Ask for a copy so you can check different teams' expertise. Portfolios can also give you design ideas or prompt additional questions.

    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 the contractor's team. This way, the technicians can inspect your bathroom and get a sense of your goals, vision, and expectations. 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

    Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, Trustpilot, and Google. While reading about customers' positive and negative experiences, look for how the contractor responds to complaints. It's a good sign if the team always strives for an amicable and satisfactory resolution.

    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    Some more complex projects, like setting up tankless water heaters or rewiring electrical systems, require subcontracting in many jurisdictions and will increase your overall cost. See common remodel costs for different projects in the table below:

    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 Wheaton

    How is a bathroom renovation different from a bathroom remodel?

    A bathroom renovation typically involves smaller alterations, such as painting, restoring a floor and replacing light fixtures. A remodel, on the other hand, involves more intensive tasks like installing a new shower or shifting fixtures to different spots.

    How long does a bathroom remodel take?

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

    What part of a bathroom remodel is the most expensive?

    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.

    How can I make the most of limited space in a small bathroom during a remodel?

    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:
    • corner showers instead of tubs
    • a large mirror above the sink/vanity
    • pedestal sinks or wall-mounted faucets
    • glass shower doors
    • and small-scale tile patterns

    Can I stay in my home during the bathroom remodel process, or should I plan to find alternate accommodation?

    You typically won't have to leave your home for a bathroom remodel. Even if the crew needs to shut off water, they might be able to do it on a small scale so you can still use other bathrooms in your home. 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 loved ones.
