Bathroom remodeling, along with kitchen remodeling, done by a professional bathroom contractor are among the most popular home remodeling projects and for good reason. According to CNNMoney.com, upgrading an old bathroom is the best return on investment in home renovation. Kitchen remodels provide the second best return.
“The return on investment on a mid-range bath modernization is 102% of its cost. Kitchens can add about 90% of their costs to the home's value.” CNNMoney.com
“Remodeling Online” concurs adding “remodeling your bathroom has one of the highest cost/value ratios of almost any home improvement project. It also increases the appraisal value of your home by significantly more than the amount of the actual cost of the bathroom project.”
Given the chart above, bathroom remodeling makes a great deal of sense. Hiring a quality bathroom remodeling contractor is critical from workmanship to professional help in selecting from the multitude of bath options available from plumbing fixtures, such as tubs and sinks, to glass shower enclosures and cabinetry. A good bath remodeling contractor can also assist in material selections for your new bathroom.
For most bathroom remodels and all bathroom additions, you will want to hire a general contractor. If you are only replacing the tile or stone in your bathroom, a tile contractor, with a specialty contractor license if your state requires a license, can provide the right service. Or, if you want to replace plumbing fixtures only, a plumbing contractor can handle this type of work. Whether you are remodeling your master bath, just a powder room or adding a new bathroom to your home, hiring a professional contractor is a must.
