Bathroom remodeling is a popular home improvement project, but it can also be overwhelming for homeowners who are new to the process. When homeowners are considering a bathroom remodel, we receive many questions, such as how do we install the flooring, how do we manage a window in a shower, and what does our installation process look like? Fortunately, there are answers to these common questions that can help guide homeowners through the remodeling process and ensure a successful outcome.

  1. How do we install the flooring in the bathroom space?

This question is one of our most common questions when remodeling bathrooms. Many of our customers choose to update their flooring when remodeling their bathroom, and questions arise about the installation because bathrooms have many narrow or uncommon angles. When we install the new flooring in a bathroom space, we install it before or simultaneously as the shower walls go in. Following this process makes installing the new toilet and/or vanity easier. Installing flooring before installing the toilet makes for a seamless finish and protects the flooring from any water damage.

  1. How do we manage a window in a shower?

Often, a bathroom has a window, and they are commonly located in the shower. The question is commonly asked about how we install our shower panels around a window, and while the answer seems simple, the installation process can be more complicated.

When a homeowner is updating their shower space and has a window in their shower, we precisely measure so that when ordering your shower walls, each piece fits perfectly together. Measuring each panel correctly is important to create a seamless design when installation. When we install the panels, we ensure that each panel is adhered to and sealed correctly to protect the walls and the elements behind it from water damage.

  1. What does our installation process look like?

When homeowners remodel their bathrooms, we follow an installation process that has been perfected over the years. After our remodeling experts evaluate your current space and spend time designing your new space with you, we get to work planning out your remodel. Once all of your materials are in our possession, we schedule your installation to work best with your schedule. Our team’s first on-site day is demo day, where we remove all the items that are getting updated. Every day after that, our installation team installs your new shower and/or tub wall surrounds, new flooring, toilet, and vanity. It’s important that we maintain a level of precision when completing your bathroom remodel so we spend an ample amount of time installing the finishing touches. From start to finish, our average completion time for a bathroom remodel is 3 to 5 days.

Before and After

 

  1. Will the homeowner have to vacate their home during the remodel?

Our bathroom remodels utilize the existing layout of the space, so no major structural or plumbing work is done. With our existing layout process in place, this allows homeowners to stay in their homes during the remodel. Our installation crews clean up after themselves each day, so little to no mess is involved. By implementing this process, homeowners are granted peace of mind when remodeling their bathrooms.

Conclusion

In conclusion, a bathroom remodel can be an excellent way to update and enhance your home while improving your daily routine. By assessing your current space, setting clear goals, selecting the right materials, asking as many questions as you can, and working with a reputable contractor, you can create a beautiful and functional bathroom that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations. With careful planning and attention to detail, your bathroom remodel can be a rewarding and satisfying home improvement project.
