Does a bathroom remodel add value to a property?
According to experts a bathroom remodel might not recoup return on the original investment. However, it is one of the key renovations that can make potential buyers want to make an offer…or not. Homebuyers look for bathrooms with updated plumbing, convenient layout, and a pleasant aesthetic. That said, in older houses, where bedrooms far outnumber bathrooms, it’s advised to spend the money on a bathroom addition instead of gut-renovating the original bathroom.
Do bathroom remodeling contractors offer financing?
Yes, bathroom remodeling contractors often offer financing. Many homeowners prefer to refinance or take out a home equity line of credit. But others will see if the contractor can connect them with a lender who will set up some other type of loan. There are many types of loans available: secured and unsecured, personal, and those backed by the Federal Housing Administration.
Why is there such a wide price range for toilets?
The price range for toilets varies from $200 into the many thousands because of variables like best-flushing performance (single vs. dual flush), self-cleaning capabilities, design (one- or two-piece), and special features, like heated seats. Cosmetic elements, such as the color and the material of the toilet, also factor into the cost. Experts agree that the most expensive toilets do not necessarily function the best.
What are heated bathroom floors?
Heated bathroom floors are a popular way to warm up typically cold tile floors and keep people comfortable in their bathrooms, even when it’s chilly outside. The proper term is “radiant heat,” and it describes various methods of heating from under the floors. The least expensive method, which is popular for small spaces, uses an electric mat. Larger spaces might have electric heated coil systems installed under the tile, or hydronic systems where heated water is run through pipes below the flooring.
How long does a bathroom renovation usually take?
A bathroom renovation usually takes two to three weeks, if it’s a relatively small and straightforward job. Expect larger or more complicated remodels to last five to six weeks--not including any delays due to special material or permits. If you’re doing a gut renovation, which includes permits, specially ordered materials, and possibly up to a dozen different tradespeople, you should realistically expect it to take three to five months to complete.
