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

    Industry Credentials

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

    Licensure and Insurance

    Iowa doesn't require residential remodelers to get licensed, but they must still register with the Division of Labor if they make at least $2,000 per year. Registration shows a company complies with workers' comp, unemployment, and bond requirements. It can also show you how prudent contractors are about the details of their job and your project.

    Photos

    Ask for photos of previous bathroom remodels the company has completed for other homeowners. Looking at these images lets you confirm the company's experience and closely evaluate the quality of their work. It could also spark ideas or questions about what upgrades and enhancements the crew could incorporate in your project.

    Consultation and Estimate

    Itemized written estimates are most important in the company selection process. A growing number of companies are offering virtual consultations, but we highly recommend beginning with an in-home visit. This way, the crew can evaluate your bathroom firsthand and get precise measurements. We recommend getting estimates from at least three different companies so you can compare costs.

    Customer Reviews

    Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Google, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, and Trustpilot. Most companies have both positive and negative reviews. While examining each one, focus on how the contractor addresses complaints from 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. 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 Cedar Rapids

    What is the difference between a bathroom renovation and a bathroom remodel?

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

    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 written estimated timeline.

    What part of a bathroom remodel is the most expensive?

    The most expensive part of a bathroom remodel is modifying the floorplan. Changing walls, demolishing fixtures, and disposing of materials all have above-average labor costs.

    What are the bathroom design trends?

    Cedar Rapids homeowners are increasingly favoring opulent, luxurious aesthetics for their bathrooms. Features like polished marble vanities, real wood cabinets, high-end stone tile and bold paint colors can make your space feel more upscale, and the look might not be as expensive as you think. However, just because something is trendy 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.

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

    You can usually stay in your home during a bathroom remodel. However, you'll need to use a different bathroom while the work is in progress. If you have mobility issues, are caring for small children, work from home, or if the bathroom is your only place to bathe or shower, plan ahead with family and friends before work starts.
