Bath Remodel – How Long Should You Plan For One?

Bath remodeling is a project that can be costly, time consuming and complex. There are two basic choices in bathroom remodeling: A) A complete gutting and refurnishing of the bathroom, or B) A partial remodel of the bathroom and replacing some of the interior and/or exterior finishing touches with new, inexpensive, ready to use, custom products. When we choose a Portland Bath Remodel, the first choice is usually the gutting and refinishing of the bathroom. Many times people decide on a Portland Bath Remodel after having their bathroom designed by a professional architect. In this case it is always advisable to have a rough idea of what the end result should look like before undertaking the bath remodel of your home. A great way to do your research before undertaking a bathroom remodel is to talk with other homeowners that are either currently undergoing a Portland Bath Remodel, or who have previously completed such a project.

Bath Remodel


Most bathroom remodels begin with a thorough cleaning of the existing space to remove any debris, dust, mold and mildew that may be present. Once this has been accomplished, your remodeling crew will then begin to work on your bathroom’s plumbing and electrical systems. Any type of pipes, including plumbing fixtures such as sinks, tubs, shower heads and toilets, may need to be repaired or replaced in order to ensure a safe and leak-free finish. Some of the more common plumbing problems that often come up during a Portland Bath Remodel include: busted pipe seals, backed up sewage lines, leaking faucets and faulty toilet and shower doors. Replacing these areas can sometimes save a considerable amount of money, even when they are replaced by a certified plumbing contractor.


When it comes to replacing the interior trim and curtains in a small bathroom remodel, the process is typically a bit less involved and quite simple. The most important thing to remember when you are selecting new curtains or other interior trims for a small bathroom remodel is to select ones that are large enough to cover the entire bathroom, but small enough to still allow air to flow through. In addition to that, there should also be enough fabric in the design to allow you to easily make any changes to the room without compromising any of the other pieces. In some cases, this might mean choosing blinds instead of curtains, or selecting a different fabric style entirely.


If you have decided to tackle the task of Bath Remodeling yourself, you will want to find a local plumbing contractor that offers both custom installations as well as do-it-yourself projects. This will save you a tremendous amount of money as well as giving you many options for your Bath Remodel. While the overall process of Bath Remodeling can be extremely satisfying and rewarding, in many cases it requires a great deal of time and skill to accomplish. With this being said, many do-it-yourselfers choose to hire a licensed plumbing contractor that offers complete remodeling services as well as installation of both new plumbing and new finishes in many cases.


The bathroom is not the only room that requires attention in a master bathroom remodel. In fact, when most people think of Bath Remodeling they usually think of changing the plumbing and/or replacing shower heads and toilets, but there are other rooms that can benefit from such a change as well. For instance, the laundry room, master bath, and other spaces in the home often receive little to no attention when it comes to Bath Remodeling. By removing the wall between these rooms, you can create an open, uncluttered space for bathing and other related tasks. In addition to that, you can incorporate more features into the laundry room, such as a washer and dryer, in order to increase convenience while also providing the convenience of having water within easy reach.


No matter which process you choose for Bath Remodeling in your home, it is essential that everyone in the home is comfortable during the entire process. This is why it is important that your Bath Remodel include all of the desired features that everyone in the household wants. However, if the Bath Remodel includes one-day bathroom remodels, then make sure that you do not add any additional damage to any of the rooms, including those that will be receiving extra attention during the remodel process. After all, your goal is to create a bathroom remodel that is exactly what you want, not one that is necessary because of budget constraints.
