Bathroom remodeling pricing

With the popularity of the DIY TV shows, and the home improvement movement, it is easy to be misled about the actual costs involved in remodeling. Complexities are often skimmed over in half hour shows and how-to books.

Even the casual observer easily recognizes quality craftsmanship from a thrown together project, within the first few months of completion.

In the following pages, we’ve separated bathroom remodeling into three categories.

  1. Minor bathroom remodeling projects
  2. Mid range bathroom remodeling projects
  3. Major bathroom remodeling projects

After reviewing these pages, you can narrow down what category best describes your proposed bathroom remodeling project, and the range of investment needed to make it happen.

I want this presentation to help you find the overlap between your wants, needs, and budget, so we can take your bathroom remodeling project from a cool idea to the bathroom you’ve been dreaming about.
