    Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

    To weed out companies that don't align with your values or which don't have a good local reputation, it's important to keep a strong pre-hiring process. By following the steps in this section, you'll be on the right track to choosing the best company for you.

    Industry Credentials

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

    Licensure and Insurance

    Massachusetts' contractor licensing requirements are slightly more complex than those in surrounding states. If a bathroom remodel involves structural work, a company must have a Construction Supervisor License from the Office for Public Safety and Inspections. Holders must have at least three years of experience, pass a trade exam, and take continuing education on a regular basis. If no structural work is involved, all that's needed is a Home Improvement Contractor registration with the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation.

    Photos

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

    Consultation and Estimate

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

    Customer Reviews

    Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Trustpilot, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, and Google. Most contractors have both positive and negative reviews. As you read each one, follow how the contractor reacts to dissatisfied customers. Reputable contractors will always aim 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 Cambridge

    What is 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, replacing a shower is considered a remodel. Restoring a floor is considered a renovation.

    How long does it take to redo a bathroom?

    It can take a few days to a month to redo a bathroom, depending on the size and complexity of the project. Before work begins, ask your contractor for a timeline estimate in writing.

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

    Yes. Many bathroom remodelers offer preset packages for smaller-scale projects, letting you update fixtures like showers, tubs, or vanities without adjusting every single detail. Various Cambridge 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?

    There are several sustainable and eco-friendly options your contractor might discuss with you. Some of them include:
    • LED lights to cut power consumption
    • products made from recycled wood or plastic
    • greywater systems to filter and reclaim water
    • eco-friendly floors like cork or bamboo
    • low or no-VOC paint
    • and dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets to reduce water use
    If minimizing your project's environmental impact is important to you, find a green-certified remodeler versed in the technology.

    How long does a typical bathroom remodel take from start to finish?

    Each bathroom remodel is unique. Ask your contractor for a copy of your proposed project's timeline. Simple jobs like reflooring, replacing fixtures, and painting could take a week or two. If you're modifying your bathroom's structure, there'll be some time added for permitting, inspections, and the work itself.
