Shower Replacement and Shower Remodeling are normally the most expensive part of any home improvement project. The average cost of installing a new shower replacement or custom tub is between five hundred dollars and several thousand dollars, depending on the type and size of tub you are purchasing. There are numerous factors that contribute to the cost of installing a bathroom remodeling project, such as the tile and flooring you decide to use, the plumbing that is required and whether or not the plumbing company you choose to work with offers routine maintenance and repair services. When you factor in installation, trimming, plumbing, electrical, flooring, tile and grout prices, you could easily double or triple the cost of your bathroom remodeling project.
For instance, if you decide to install an over the top Jacuzzi tub in your bathtub, your total labor and installation cost may reach well into the six figure range, but if you replace the old unit with a luxurious Jacuzzi tub replacement unit, your tub could cost you anywhere from two to three thousand dollars less. Even more drastic changes, such as installing an over the counter, double bathroom sink and real wood floor may require plumbing, electrical and/or painting. Depending on the layout of your home, the amount of work required, and the amount you are willing to spend on remodeling your bathroom may have a significant impact on the amount you are able to spend on your bathroom project. If you’re on a budget, don’t let this stop you from replacing your old shower fixture with a modern model. You may end up saving money in the long run when it comes time to hire someone to install the new one.
