How Much Does A Master Bathroom Remodel Cost?


Bathroom Remodel Costs: A Contractor’s Perspective


Renovating your bathroom can be a daunting task, and one of the biggest concerns that homeowners have is how much it will cost. In this transcript, Brad from Home Love Construction explains the various factors that contribute to the cost of a bathroom remodel and gives an honest contractor’s perspective on what to expect. Here is a breakdown of the key points.


  1. Brad is at ProSource of Port Richey, a store that sells a wide variety of materials and products for bathroom remodeling. He recommends visiting this store for inspiration and to get a better idea of what products look like installed.
  2. Before giving a cost estimate, Brad explains that remodeling a master bathroom is not a simple process. You typically have to go down to the studs, strip the floors, and rebuild everything from scratch.
  3. Brad estimates that a mid-range master bathroom remodel will cost around $18,000 on the low end and $25,000 to $28,000 on the high end.
  4. The cost of a bathroom remodel can vary depending on the features you want in your shower. For example, a zero entry shower requires cutting out the concrete and pouring a new level floor, which adds to the cost.
  5. A beautiful shower surround like the one in the store can cost anywhere from $4,500 to $6,000 just to install the tile, not including materials.
  6. Plumbing is another significant cost factor in a bathroom remodel. The cost of installing a valve and two showerheads can be anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000.
  7. Cabinetry is another feature that can significantly add to the cost of a bathroom remodel. A beautiful cabinet setup with a tower, panels, quartz countertop, sinks, and faucets could cost $3,000 to $4,000.
  8. Brad emphasizes that the cost of a bathroom remodel can quickly add up as you add more features. Every layer adds cost, so it’s essential to prioritize what’s most important to you.
  9. Brad also shares that their company does not include items like tile or faucets in their contracts. Instead, they let the customer pick these out and handle the warranty process directly with the store where they purchased the item.
  10. In conclusion, a mid-range master bathroom remodels that includes a shower, new floor, paint, and glass will typically cost a little north of $20,000. However, Brad notes that costs can quickly increase if you add more features or opt for high-end materials. His goal is to provide an honest contractor’s perspective so that homeowners know what to expect and avoid sticker shock.
