Planning for your bathroom remodel in San Diego

skyline

Homeowners in older neighborhoods, like South Park, Kensington or parts of Point Loma, are the most likely to benefit from bathroom remodeling in San Diego. Many mid-century homes in Allied Gardens and Del Cerro are due for bathroom updates as well. Owners of apartment buildings or rentals in Bankers Hill or North Park should think about upgrading their bathrooms to attract tenants.

When planning a bathroom remodel, your budget should be a primary factor in any decision. Think about your timeframe as well. A complete bathroom overhaul lasts five weeks on average. However, some bathroom remodelers specialize in one-day shower or tub renovations, not including the time to take measurements and custom make the replacement parts.

Visit bathroom showrooms to learn about bathroom designs, fixture options and new, eco-friendly materials. Bathroom remodeling contractors typically help with design decisions if you need them, and virtual bathroom planning tools are available online as well.

To find a quality contractor in San Diego, look for businesses and individuals licensed by the California Contractors State License Board. The board also provides basic information for consumers considering hiring a contractor.

Check the reputation of any company or bathroom contractor you’re thinking about hiring. Carefully look over the terms of the contracts they offer you, and make sure you’re prepared for any unforeseen repairs that are not in the original contract.

General contractors that offer bathroom remodeling hire subcontractors to perform work on plumbing, drywall and electrical systems. These contractors might do much of the non-specialty work themselves, but some general contractors are only there to coordinate the subcontractors' efforts.

In California, there are licensed specialty contractors with training in trades relevant to bathroom remodeling. Specialty contractors focus on either:

  • Drywall
  • Electrical systems
  • Tile
  • Painting and decorating
  • Flooring
  • Water conditioning

Bathroom specialty contractors should hold licenses in one or more of these trades or hire subcontractors that do. Bathroom contractors should also be able to help with permits if necessary.

How much does a bathroom remodel cost in San Diego?

Bathroom remodel costs in San Diego range from $4,000 - $35,000 with the average around $12,000 to $15,000. All things being equal, a small bathroom remodel costs less than a larger space, but your choice of fixtures and materials affects the bathroom renovation price as well.

Factors that affect bathroom renovation costs include the:

  • Square footage
  • Scope of the project
  • Layout
  • Fixtures
  • Materials
  • Additional repairs

For cheap bathroom renovations in San Diego, adjust the scope of your project. Shower upgrades are cheaper than a full bathroom remodel and improve your bathroom significantly on their own. Also, consider buying store-bought fixtures and choosing less expensive materials.
