5 Questions to Ask Before A Bathroom Renovation

What is your budget?

Across the United States, the average bathroom remodel costs about $20,000. Determining what you can spend and sticking to it can help you eliminate choices before you fall in love. Don?t worry if you have a small budget. There are great options out there in every price range.

Who will be using the bathroom?

This question will help you decide on features such as tiles, tubs, walk-in showers, etc. A tub can be a key feature when it comes time to resell, at least for buyers with small children (and for those who like a good bubble bath?). On the other hand, walk-in showers can take up less space. As for flooring, it is best to avoid carpeting and wood. However, be sure to keep in mind the dangers of a slippery, polished floor for older folks and children.

Do you want to expand or keep the same size?

The average bathroom is just under 50 sq ft. If you feel like this is too cramped, you can consider moving walls, carving out space from adjoining rooms, or removing nearby closets. Our team of experts can help you determine if expansion is possible.

What is underneath your bathroom?

Before the remodel, it is wise to find out what materials you might encounter. If your home was built in the late to early 70s, lead and asbestos could be a health hazard. J.G?s Home Improvement can arrange an expert inspection before the project begins.

How will the remodel impact your life?

The average bathroom remodel will require about 1 month. If your home only has one bathroom, be sure to make arrangements so that you don?t find yourself going without a shower for too long!
