Baton Rouge Bathroom Remodeling

Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling can be cost prohibitive. While remodeling your Baton Rouge bathroom can add value to your home when you decide to sell it, the initial cost may scare people off from even undertaking a Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project in the first place. While there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the cost of remodeling a bathroom, there are some basic guidelines that you can follow. Most estimates for a Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project will be specific to the contractor and the complexity of your project.

Basic Guidelines for Estimates

When you are searching for an estimate for your Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project, you should speak to as many Louisiana bathroom contractors as you can. Every contractors' estimate is going to be different. Estimates for Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling projects will be contingent on the condition of the room that is to be remodeled, the location, the time frame, the plans for the remodeled bathroom and the contractor themselves. When trying to decide on your budget and who to use, take your time and compare the various estimates that you can get.

A basic Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project will include the installation of new fixtures, such as a toilet and a bathtub, tiling, counters and cabinets, new flooring and paint. If you are able to do any of these upgrades yourself, you can save some money on your Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project. Taking on the flooring or the painting yourself can save you a fair amount of money on your Louisiana remodeling project.

On average, a Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project will cost between $15,000 and $17,500 for a basic remodeling. Luckily, bathroom remodeling projects that occur in southern states that are east of the Mississippi River tend to be less expensive than remodeling projects that occur in other states.

Getting Estimates from LA Contractors

You may decide to seek estimates from LA contractors before you decide whether or not you will remodel the bathroom in your Louisiana home. Its a good idea to get as many estimates as you can and the best part is, they're free. When calling contractors in Baton Rouge for estimates, you will want to have a general idea of what you will want to do to your bath to get the most accurate estimate that you can.

When searching for contractors to call for estimates, you will want to begin by speaking to your friends and neighbors in Baton Rouge. Ask around to find out who they have used and who they will never use again. You can also go online to sites that review contractors to find out who in Baton Rouge is good and who is not.

Before you decide what you will want to do to your bath, you should determine what you absolutely need in your remodeled Baton Rouge bath and what you just want. Having an idea of the materials that you would want to use will also help you to get an accurate quote. Flip through some design magazines in preparation of getting quotes so that you know what your talking about when you start to speak to contractors.

Once you have spoken to a few contractors in Baton Rouge and given them an idea of what you want out of your bath remodel, you can start to compare their quotes. The lowest quote is not necessarily the best, however. In addition to going with a contractor you can afford, you also want to make sure that they will complete the work as close to on time as possible while doing a good job. Make sure the contractor you choose has experience with full bath remodels and not just additions.

After you have spoken to several contractors, you can then decide if it is feasible for you and your family to go through with a bath remodel. In addition to the cost of the actual remodel, you will also have to live in a construction site for a few weeks. There will be dust, dirt and the hassle of living in a construction zone. You have to be prepared, financially and emotionally, to undergo the trials and tribulations that come with renovating your home.

A Baton Rouge bathroom remodeling project will cost upwards of $15,000. The more you want to do to change up the room will add to the cost of your project. Shopping around for contractors as well as doing some of the work yourself will help you to save some money on the cost of your remodel. A remodeled bathroom will probably end up making you some money when it comes time to sell your LA home and can make your time in your current home more enjoyable.
