Tucson Arizona Bathroom Remodel Costs

Twin Home Experts wanted to take time out here in our Tucson, Arizona location and answer the most asked question: “What does a bathroom remodel cost in Tucson, Arizona?”

The first step in understanding bathroom remodel costs is: who is the Tucson, Arizona bathroom remodel company you’re putting your hard earned money with?

Common mistakes homeowners make

We see this mistake happen to so many homeowners when they are looking for a good deal.

They end up hiring people that don’t have the proper licenses or haven’t been in business long enough. That tends to lead to sloppy work that has to be redone – costing the homeowner double of what it should have.

Stanford University did a study and called 10,000 homeowners across the country. They asked everyone this question: “Would you recommend your bathroom contractor?”

An astounding fifty percent of homeowners said NO!

The great thing about today is that technology allows you, the homeowner, to do your research. Make sure whoever is coming to your home to give you an estimate on your bathroom remodel, is a company you will at least consider.

More often than not, you can get an idea of their qualification, experience, pricing, etc. by searching them on Google.

Our top 5 criteria for a qualified remodel company:

  1. How long have they in business? (Over 10 years is minimum)
  2. How many reviews, and what review score, do they have?  (At least have 100 reviews)
  3. When/what was the last project they completed in your area?
  4. Check license board for violations.
  5. Are they fully licensed, insured, have work compensation and bonded?

If your bathroom contractor has these in place, then you’re ready to have them over to give you a cost for your bathroom remodel.

The majority of legitimate Tucson Arizona bathroom remodel contractors who have a good reputation and have been in business for over 10 years will have these costs in place:

Fifty percent of the bathroom cost will go directly to pay labor and material. About 35-42% will go to overhead costs such as insurance, work comp, secretaries, rent, phones, trucks, accounting, etc.

The overhead of running a business is a huge expense. After these costs are covered – if the project goes as planned – then we make a 10-15% net profit.

This 10-15% net profit is important to make, so we will be around to always take care of our clients, this is why most contractors go out of business.
