BATHROOM RENOVATIONS

Enhance Your Comfort

For many homeowners, the bathroom is a space ripe for potential, yet it often goes unchanged for years. Whether you dream of a spa-like retreat, a more functional family bathroom, or an accessible haven, renovating your bathroom can significantly enhance your comfort and enjoyment of your home.

However, embarking on a bathroom renovation requires careful planning from start to finish. From brainstorming your dream design to adding the final touches, a successful renovation takes deliberate effort to bring your vision to life. This guide will equip you with the knowledge of the essential tasks and considerations involved, helping you prepare effectively for your bathroom renovation journey.

What Is The Typical Cost?

The expenses for renovating your bathroom will primarily hinge on several critical factors, with the initial factor being the square footage of the area and the number of plumbing fixtures. Larger spaces will necessitate increased labor and materials, resulting in higher overall costs. 2-piece, 3-piece, 4-piece (and more) bathrooms will also have different costs attached. As a guideline, anticipate the following cost estimates in Canadian dollars for bathrooms of various sizes:

  • 24 sq. ft. (2-piece) = $4,800 - $5,200

  • 45 sq. ft. (3-piece) = $14,080 - $18,240

  • 100 sq. ft. (4-piece) = $26,900 - $34,843

  • 144 sq. ft. (spa-like) = please book a consultation with our experts

Bathroom Renovation Cost Factors

Similar to any home improvement project, the primary expenses for your bathroom renovation will arise from materials and labor. This holds especially true for larger bathroom renovations, where the size and complexity amplify these costs. Depending on the size and intricacy of your renovation, you can anticipate numerous hours of construction and thousands of dollars in materials.

As projects become more intricate, pricing adjusts accordingly. Premium materials, such as high-end tile or freestanding bathtubs, and intricate designs featuring custom vanities or walk-in showers will incur higher expenses compared to standard options.

It's important to view your bathroom renovation as an investment in both your home's value and your enjoyment of the space. Thus, it's essential to strike a balance that aligns with your budget.

Breakdown of Bathroom Renovation Costs

Embedded within labor and material quality costs are several technical renovation elements to consider for your project. These encompass everything from initial planning to demolition and installation. Below, we'll delve into these aspects in detail and outline the expected price ranges.

The EssThe Essential Trades for Your Bathroom Renovation:
A successful bathroom renovation requires a skilled team of professionals, each specializing in a specific aspect of the project. Here's a closer look at the vital trades involved:

Designer

Interior designers are typically involved in the initial stages of a project. They'll meet with you to discuss your vision, take measurements of your space, and develop a design plan. Once you've approved the plan, they can help you with things like selecting furniture and finishes, and overseeing the construction process. They have the expertise and experience to create a space that is both beautiful and functional, all while staying within your budget.

Project Manager

Project Managers oversee the entire project lifecycle, from planning and initiation to execution, closure, and evaluation. They juggle tasks like scheduling, budgeting, resource allocation, and communication to ensure everything runs smoothly and the project meets its goals.

Think of them as the conductor of a complex orchestra, keeping everyone in sync and ensuring a harmonious outcome.

Demolition Crew

Demolition crews typically get involved at the very beginning of a renovation project. This is because their work needs to be completed before the rebuilding phase can commence. Imagine trying to install new cabinets if the old ones are still blocking the space! 

Think of a demolition crew as the team that preps the canvas for a painting. They clear out the old artwork (fixtures, flooring, walls) and clean up the workspace (responsible debris disposal) so the artist (renovation workers) can create their masterpiece (your dream space).

Plumber

A plumber is key to a smooth bathroom renovation. Before framing, they assess your existing system and plan pipe placement for fixtures. Once the framing's up, they install everything, ensuring proper water flow, drainage, and venting throughout the bathroom. They're the ones who make sure your new bathroom functions flawlessly, from hidden pipes to the fixtures you see.

Electrician

An electrician plays a crucial role in bringing your living space to life. They specialize in installing all the electrical components that will power your home - think new wiring, light switches, outlets, and even the light fixtures themselves. Their work ensures everything is up to code, meaning it meets the established safety standards. But just as importantly, they'll also follow your design plan, making sure the placement of these elements aligns with your vision for the space. The electrician typically comes in after the demolition phase of construction is complete and the rough plumbing is in place. This ensures they have clear access to walls and floors to run the wiring efficiently without encountering any unexpected obstacles.

Framer

Framers are the bone builders of a construction project. They take raw lumber and meticulously craft the skeleton for walls, vanities, and other structures. Their work follows the demolition phase, where the space is cleared and prepared. This means they might need to coordinate with plumbers and electricians who are also laying down essential lines behind the scenes before the framers come in. Essentially, framers set the stage for the rest of the construction process to unfold.

Drywaller

A drywaller is a skilled tradesperson who plays a crucial role in transforming a building's framework into a finished space. Their main task is to install and prepare drywall panels, the large sheets of material that form the interior walls and ceilings. This involves carefully hanging the panels onto the pre-built frame, ensuring a seamless fit. Once the drywall is in place, the drywaller then meticulously finishes the surface. This includes filling in any gaps between panels, smoothing out imperfections, and creating a flawless surface ready for painting or tiling. Drywallers typically enter a construction project after the framing is complete and the plumbers and electricians have finished their rough-in work, ensuring a clean canvas for their expertise.

Waterproofer

Waterproofers are specialists in protecting buildings from water damage. They achieve this by applying special membranes or coatings to critical areas, like showers and floors, that are particularly susceptible to moisture. Their work typically falls within a specific timeframe during construction. Ideally, waterproofers come in after the drywall has been installed but before tiles are laid. This allows them to create a watertight barrier behind the final surface without obstructing the tiling process.

Tile Setter

A tile setter is the skilled professional who transforms your vision for a tiled surface into reality. They specialize in installing ceramic, porcelain, or even stone tiles onto floors, walls, and even shower surrounds. Their work typically commences after the waterproofing specialists have ensured the area is prepped and protected from moisture damage. So, you can expect the tile setter to come in once the groundwork is laid to create that beautiful tiled finish you desire.

Painter

Painters are the artisans responsible for bringing a room, and often a whole structure, to life through color. They meticulously apply paint to walls, ceilings, and trim, transforming bare spaces into finished products. Their work plays a crucial role in the overall aesthetic, influencing the mood and functionality of a room. Painters typically represent one of the final trades on a construction project. They strategically schedule their work after most fixtures, like cabinets and lightbulbs, are installed to avoid damaging them during the painting process.

Glass Specialist (Optional)

In the construction process, there's a specialist you might encounter called a glass specialist. These experts take care of installing custom-made glass features like shower enclosures and shelves. Their work typically happens towards the later stages of a project, often after the tilework is complete. This ensures the delicate glass features are installed without risk of damage from earlier construction phases.

General Laborer

A general laborer is the backbone of many worksites, acting as a supportive workhorse throughout a project's lifecycle. Their duties are wide-ranging, from the physical task of hauling materials and equipment to the necessary but unseen job of cleaning up debris and keeping the workspace organized. They are the helping hands that ensure everything runs smoothly, and their involvement can span the entire project depending on the workload. Whether it's during the initial phases of preparing the site or the final steps of cleaning up, general laborers play a vital role in bringing a project to fruition.
