What Does Remodeling cost?
Cost of Materials
The materials for the average bathroom remodel can cost between $5,000 and $10,000. This includes new fixtures like a new toilet, new sink, and a new bathtub. It also includes the cost of new tiling, new vanity, and a countertop for the sink.
The cost of your materials can go up quickly if you want any specialized fixtures or if you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible. If you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible, then the material costs can go up another $2,000 or $3,000.
Cost of Labor
As a general rule, most people expect that the labor for a remodel will cost roughly twice as much as the materials. This is not a hard and fast rule, but this is commonly practiced throughout the industry. On average, a bathroom remodeling job will cost you around twice as much as the materials cost you.
For a small bathroom of roughly 100 square feet, labor costs could run an average of $12,000 or $13,000 on the high end. This would include the labor to completely redo the tile, install completely new fixtures, complete any necessary wiring and plumbing and have everything inspected afterward. Do not overlook the importance of having the wiring and plumbing inspected right after the contractors finish. This can end up saving you a lot of time and money on repairs in the long run.
