HOW DO WE GET STARTED WITH PLANNING MY BATHROOM REMODEL?
We start the process of bathroom remodeling with our design phase where we will get to know your wishes and overall home style. From there we will help you navigate through the multitude of details involved with updating your bathroom’s floor plan, cabinet style, counter-top options, tile flooring options, lighting ideas and much more.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REMODEL MY BATHROOM?
It will depend on the details of your design and the availability of materials and fixtures. Most bathroom remodels include removing the bath tub and/or shower plus replacing the toilet, vanity and flooring. If the bathroom remodel is more extensive, the entire room may be rearranged and/or enlarged involving concrete floor cutting, removing and rearranging walls and the ceiling.
CAN MY SHOWER BE RE-TILED WITHOUT REDOING THE BATHROOM FLOOR?
We have successfully replaced tubs and showers without redoing the bathroom flooring. Tubs can be challenging if the edge of the bathtub has a unique shape. The best situation is when the homeowner has extra tiles from the last bathroom remodel to repair the floor as necessary after the tub replacement.
IS IT NECESSARY TO HAVE A BATHROOM EXHAUST FAN?
The building code does not require exhaust fans if the bathroom has a window. We recommend that every bathroom should have an exhaust fan to remove humidity from the bathroom during baths and showers. Humidity that builds up in your bathroom will damage everything it comes into contact with. Many homeowners will notice issues with the walls, ceiling, and fixtures only after it has reached the point of needing repair. The humidity will be removed if you run your fan during your bath or shower. You will notice the mirror will not fog over, nor will anything else in the bathroom suffer from the moisture.
HOW CAN I AVOID FORGETTING TO TURN OFF THE BATHROOM EXHAUST FAN?
The loss of electricity and conditioned air that you paid to cool or heat can be frustrating. The simplest cure is to install a timer switch. There are various options. The best ones will have several buttons for time options from a few minutes to half an hour. Be sure that the timer switch is rated for twenty amps in order to match your exhaust fan’s requirements.
