Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Remodeling Contractor

Before you hire a bathroom remodeler, you'll want to ensure they're reliable. We recommend following these steps as you get estimates.

Industry Credentials

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

Licensure and Insurance

While Pennsylvania doesn't require bathroom remodelers to get a state license, they must still register with the Attorney General as Home Improvement Contractors and carry required insurance coverage. They also have to follow city and county licensing requirements as necessary. For more information on regulations in Upper Darby, contact your local government offices.

Photos

Request a copy of the bathroom company's portfolio, which includes pictures from past remodels it's done for homeowners. This is primarily so you can examine the quality of a team's work. However, it could also spark inspiration for your own bathroom renovation or prompt questions about what the team can do for your project.

Consultation and Estimate

You'll ultimately select a company based on detailed written estimates. While some contractors offer online estimates, little compares to an in-person consultation. This way, you can discuss your goals, meet the crew, and get the necessary measurements taken. Services and pricing will vary from company to company, so we recommend getting three different itemized estimates for the most effective comparison.

Customer Reviews

Before signing any contracts, always research a bathroom remodeling company's reputation using Google, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. While reading about customers' positive and negative experiences, look for how the contractor responds to complaints. It's a green flag if the team is committed to finding an amicable and satisfactory resolution.

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 Remodel Average Cost Average Time
Half-bath remodel $2,000-$5,000 5–7 days
Full bath remodel $6,000-$15,000 10–14 days
Primary bath remodel $10,000-$30,000 15–25 days
Wet room installation $11,000-$18,000 10–30 days
Luxury bath remodel $50,000+ 15–30 days

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Upper Darby

How is a bathroom remodel different from a bathroom renovation?

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

How long does it take to redo a bathroom?

It can take a few days to a month 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 changing the floorplan. Demolishing fixtures, adding/removing walls, and disposing of old materials all have above-average labor costs.

What leading bathroom design trends should I know about?

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

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

To make the most of limited space, your bathroom remodeler might recommend any of the following design elements:
  • small-scale tile patterns
  • vertical cabinets
  • a larger mirror above the sink/vanity
  • corner showers with glass doors
  • pedestal sinks/wall-mounted faucets
  • and tall and narrow shelves
