Bathroom Remodel Cost Estimator
Before you are ready to begin a bathroom remodeling project, the first thing you want to know is how much will it cost? You’re out of pocket expense is important and even though your remodeling project will add more value to your home than it will cost, cost is still important. A quick way of getting a bathroom remodel cost estimator is to assign a cost per square foot of area to be remodeled. Multiply the square footage by a cost range of $100 to $700 per square foot.
For example, if you want to add a 100-square-foot bedroom at the end of a hall by building an addition into the backyard and remodel an existing 100-square-foot bedroom and a 50-square-foot bathroom, the total area would be 200 square feet. Then multiply 200 by the range of $100 to $700 and you get a remodel cost estimate of $20,000 to $140,000.
This estimate has small value since the range of potential costs varies wildly. The $700 per square foot is unusual and unaffordable for most. Conversely, the $100 per square foot is unrealistically low.
But armed with a general idea of the remodel cost, you can get an estimate from a contractor or architect. They will likely use a cost per square foot to form an estimate, but they won’t use a range as wide as $100 to $700. They will estimate using an average based on their experience with similar projects and the materials to be used. Average cost per square foot declines as the room gets larger, so adding extra space to the project will be cost-effective. When you get an estimate, plan on a budget overrun of about 12%.
Estimates from local contractors will offer an accurate picture, but the average national remodel costs provided below give a rough idea of the current price level for the three top home renovation projects. National averages won’t account for problem plumbing setups; exotic materials; relocating rooms, power wiring, and plumbing; structural problems in old homes needing repair; etc.
Bathroom Remodel Cost Estimates based on the average national remodel costs give a price range from $7,000 to $20,000. Average Project Price is $11,605. If you want to add half bathroom, you need to prepare $4,500 to $6,000. Adding full bathroom will cost you more, get ready for $8,000 to $14,000.
