How Will Your Bathroom Renovation Go?

We’re done with the outline for the timeline on your bathroom makeover, so now let’s move forward with the general steps involved in this endeavor. 

Step1: Pre-Demolition Stage

This is perhaps the most difficult phase of all since it will affect the entire outcome of your bathroom renovation on a budget. With that being said, you need to invest enough time and effort in the planning and budgeting stage.

  1. Make a checklist of the things you want to include for the renovation.
  2. Scout for reliable local contractors and ask for their estimate.
  3. Choose the best remodeling contractor
  4. Inform your neighbors beforehand that you’ll be doing a makeover with your bathroom, so they can expect the usual disturbance associated with it.
  5. Source out materials and suppliers for your fixtures and materials

Step2: Get A Free Estimate or Onsite Inspection

This phase is critical since it will help you budget for your bathroom makeover. So far, we recommended that you go for an onsite inspection and measurement since you’ll get a more precise estimate of your bathroom remodel on a budget.

Some contractors will ask for a minimal service charge for their onsite inspection, yet they can also waive this or write it off on your bathroom renovation’s total cost. 

Once you’ve chosen a contractor, you need to carefully read their contract and its inclusions. We always give our clients ample time to read the agreement and ask questions so that they won’t regret hiring us for our bathroom renovation services

Step3: Demolition Time

This phase can be completed with our trained team or on you own. However, in terms of efficiency, passing this task to our personnel is a good choice. We will take out the old and damaged structures and fixtures inside your shower, powder room, and toilet.

Step4: Framing, Electrical, and Plumbing Works

Once we’ve completed tearing down your walls, floor tiles, ceilings, and all other worn-out elements, we’ll install the new frames, electrical wiring, and pipes for a sturdier infrastructure.

Additionally, there will be a pre-inspection from the city or municipal officer who will issue the certificate or license for your bathroom remodeling. 

Step5: Hanging Your Drywall and Insulation Process

After we’ve secured the permits and licenses, we’re going to hang and finish your drywall and insulation. These will cover the skeletal framework of your wall while providing sufficient energy-efficiencies through effective insulation and a radiant heating system.

Step6: Tile Works

Our seasoned personnel will work on your wall, floor, backsplash, and sink counter tiles. This task is delicate since we need to ensure proper elevation, installation, and grout sealing techniques are utilized.

Step7: Installing New Shower Trims, Toilet, and Tub Refinishing

We will either (1) fix and refinish, or (2) upgrade your toilet, tub, and shower trim to achieve better functionality, aesthetics, and comfort in your newly finished bathroom. If you’re on a tight budget, then the former option will be a great alternative.

We can also install a walk-in shower with multiple shower heads to elevate the functionality of your oasis-like shower stall. Meanwhile, for your toilet, we can make it wall-mounted and install the water tank inside your bathroom wall to save space.

Step8: Bathroom Vanity Tops and Cabinets

Your vanity tops and cabinetry are the main focal points in your bathroom, so you have the option to either update or upgrade it. Presently, quartz, marble, and granite are the top materials for vanity countertops. It gives your space a modern and cozy vibe while providing impeccable strength and water resistance.

On the other hand, your vanity cabinets can be made from hardwood, laminates, or particleboard, depending on your budget and needs. Furthermore, we can match your cabinet style with your vanity tops to create a streamlined appearance.

Step9: Final Inspection and Adjustments

After doing all upgrades, repairs, and refinishing, we are going to clean up our working area to restore the neat and organized look of your master bath. Afterward, we are going to call you out and do a final inspection of every item included in your bathroom renovations. 

If there are things to modify, then we can still do a quick adjustment on the same day. Overall, we guarantee your satisfaction with our bathroom remodeling service through our innovative technology, quality materials, and customized design.
