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

Industry Credentials

Begin vetting a company by asking two important questions about its local reputation. First, determine how long it's been operating and how many projects it's completed. Second, find out what industry groups it belongs to, such as the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). These organizations provide private certifications and ongoing education, which keep crews current with the latest best practices.

Licensure and Insurance

Minnesota's licensing requirements for residential remodelers are a bit more complex than those in other states. The Department of Labor and Industry requires contractors practicing more than one "special skill" to get either a Residential Building Contractor or Residential Remodeler license. Special skills include disciplines like flooring, painting, and window and door installation, and a comprehensive list is on the department's website. If a company only practices one special skill or makes less than $15,000 per year, it doesn't need a license, but it must still apply for a Certificate of Exemption.

Photos

Next, ask the bathroom company for a portfolio. Some contractors print physical copies, while others maintain a running webpage detailing their past projects. Carefully examine each photo to assess the crew's workmanship. You might even find some design ideas for your own bathroom renovation.

Consultation and Estimate

Detailed written estimates are essential in the decision-making process. A growing number of remodeling companies are offering fully-online consultations, but we strongly advise beginning with an in-home visit. This way, the crew can evaluate your bathroom firsthand and get the correct measurements. 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

Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, Google, and Trustpilot. As you read about customers' positive and negative experiences, pay attention to 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?

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

Full bath remodel $6,000-$15,000 10–14 days

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Apple Valley

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 adding, removing, 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 it take to redo a bathroom?

It can take 2-30 days to redo a bathroom, depending on project scope. Before work begins, ask your remodeling company for a timeline estimate in writing.

What part of a bathroom remodel should I get done first?

Step one of a bathroom remodel is creating a blueprint for your space. Include your desired fixtures, material preferences, color scheme, and layout. From there, determine your budget for the project and select a qualified contractor to consult on and complete the project.

If I have a small bathroom, how can I maximize my space and make it feel larger?

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

What's my return on investment (ROI) for remodeling a bathroom in Apple Valley?

While return on investment (ROI) will vary by location and project scope, a 2022 National Association of Realtors study found homeowners recovered 71% of their bathroom remodel costs on average. Extensive remodels in desirable neighborhoods will yield the highest returns.
