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

To weed out businesses that aren't ethical or don't have positive community feedback, 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 selecting the best company for you.

Industry Credentials

As you discuss your project with bathroom remodelers, ask them how many years of experience they have . Many remodeling companies are members of trade groups like the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Professional certifications can also hold professional accreditations that exhibit expertise.

Licensure and Insurance

Washington doesn't issue state "licenses" to bathroom remodelers, but they must still register as general or specialty contractors with the Department of Labor & Industries. Registration shows a company has at least a $6,000 surety bond, $200,000 of public liability coverage, and $50,000 of property damage insurance.

Photos

Ask for 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 caliber of a team's work. However, it could also provide design ideas for your own bathroom renovation or generate questions about what the team can do for your project.

Consultation and Estimate

Itemized written estimates are most important in the decision-making process. A growing number of remodelers are offering fully-online consultations, but we strongly advise beginning with an in-home visit. This way, the team 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 head-to-head to find the best deal.

Customer Reviews

Next, research a company's online reputation by going to sites like Google, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. When you read about customers' positive and negative experiences, focus on how the company responds to complaints. It's a green flag if the team always strives for an amicable and satisfactory resolution.

How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

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

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Remodeling in Burien

How is a bathroom remodel different from a bathroom renovation?

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

How long does a bathroom remodel take?

A bathroom remodel's duration will hinge on your vision for the space. Most projects take between 2-30 days to complete.

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

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

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 painting, reflooring, and replacing fixtures 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.

If I remodel my bathroom in Burien, what will my return on investment (ROI) be?

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