Planning a Bathroom Remodel

Once you have your budget, its time to start planning the bathroom remodel. You need to look at it in 3 stages. Bathroom remodels start with everyone’s favorite part, demolition. Removing all the old facets of the bathroom that are going to be replaced. Then you have the construction phase when you rough in plumbing, electrical, structure, and close the walls back up. The construction phase is also when you would install the flooring, tub, shower, and toilet. Vanity or sinks as well. Finally, you have the finishing phase. Paint, trim, hang towel holders or toilet paper holders.

Starting A Bathroom Remodel

The scariest part of a remodel for homeowners is hiring the right people to do the job properly. Hiring a plumber for a bathroom remodel is as important as buying a tub that holds water. A general contractor should recommend licensed specialists for particular trades or will likely have existing relationships with some coming in.

During a Bathroom Remodel

As fun as a bathroom remodel is when it’s happening, there are some downsides. It can make the area dusty or dirty for a short time. You will want to take precautions to tarp or tape off areas so dust and water don’t travel farther than necessary. In the event that there is not another bathroom in the house, you might have to consider port-a-potty rental for using the restroom. Some homeowners choose to sleep in a hotel during a bathroom remodel for full access to a restroom overnight.

Finishing a Bathroom Renovation

Once all the plumbing and structure is buttoned up tight and tested, you close up the walls with green board or drywall or Schluter systems and tile, paint, and trim. All that’s left is installing the fixtures. Install the toilet. Install the vanity or sink pedestal, and caulk.

The most important part of the bathroom remodel, you never see, its in the plumbing, inside the walls. That’s why its paramount that you have a licensed, experienced professional plumber do any plumbing in your home that isn’t easily accessible. One mistake, one leak can destroy your home. Don’t take the risk with DIY or a handyman neighbor.
