Bathroom Remodeling FAQs

Is it time to remodel your bathroom? This can be a big decision and investment, but with the right approach, the results can be highly rewarding. If you're considering a bathroom renovation, it's important to understand the factors that may be driving the need for improvement.

At Exceptional Exteriors and Renovations, we know that age can take a toll on your bathroom, and this may be reflected in various ways. For example, plumbing issues such as water leaks or reduced water quality could be a sign that it's time to update the pipes. Similarly, older water fixtures such as showers and faucets can become less efficient over time, which can lead to higher utility bills.

Bathroom tiles are another feature that often show their age, potentially detracting from the overall style and safety of the room. Chipped or worn tiles can be unsightly and pose a tripping hazard, while walls with scuffed paint or peeling wallpaper can detract from the overall feel of the room and even create mildew problems.

Of course, there are other reasons why you may want to consider remodeling your bathroom beyond just age. For example, if you feel that the design of the room doesn't suit your tastes, a renovation can help reconcile this. If you're also unhappy with the storage capacity of your bathroom, a renovation can be an opportunity to create more efficient and spacious storage solutions.

Whether you're dealing with age-related issues or simply want to improve the overall design and functionality of your bathroom, a renovation project may be the solution you're looking for.

At Exceptional Exteriors and Renovations, we understand the importance of considering the return on investment (ROI) for any home improvement project. With a bathroom remodel, the ROI represents the amount of project expenses that will be regained due to the increase in your home's value.

In Pennsylvania, the average ROI for a bathroom remodel is a promising 59%. This means that homeowners typically recover around 59% of their remodeling expenses through the rise in their home's value.

While the effects of a bathroom remodel's ROI may not be immediately apparent, they will still be present and waiting for you when you decide to sell your home. In a way, the average bathroom remodel could be considered almost 60% off due to its potential ROI.

At Exceptional Exteriors and Renovations, we understand the complexities that come with bathroom remodeling. To ensure maximum efficiency and minimal complications, it's essential to follow a certain order in completing the various tasks involved. In this FAQ, we'll take a closer look at the sequential steps involved in remodeling a bathroom.

It's important to note that the order of these steps can be modified to better fit the specifics of a project, but here's what the typical process looks like:

Phase One - Laying The Groundwork

The first step in the bathroom remodeling process is planning. This enables you to set your remodeling goals and determine the most efficient way to achieve them. Our team of professional designers can help you with this step, as they are trained to observe your bathroom usage and make suggestions that fit your lifestyle and tastes.

This is also the time to consider bathroom design and make some aesthetic decisions. For example, you can pick out paint colors, but you may want to wait until later to select a new light switch plate. Our design team can guide you through the various design decisions and offer assistance throughout the remaining phases.

Phase Two - Setting The Stage

With the groundwork laid, it's time to remove any old fixtures and anything that could obstruct the upcoming work. Our team will handle the removal of items you'd like to replace, ensuring that nothing valuable is damaged in the process. We'll also be cautious and remove only what's necessary, to ensure that nothing remains that should have been removed.

Phase Three - The Waterworks

With the stage set, we'll address the major water-related features of your bathroom. This is the time to replace old pipes and move appliances as needed. This may require some attention to the walls and floor to expose the pipes, but any resulting surface tears will be patched up in the next phase.

Phase Four - Defining The Atmosphere

In this phase, we'll finish the walls and floor with your choice of wallpaper, paint, tile, or flooring, or a combination of these. We'll also update your shower or bathtub to give your bathroom a new look. Lighting is another way to personalize your bathroom, and there are many options available to choose from. Our team can help you fine-tune the interior design with some final touches.

Phase Five - Last Touches

As we wrap up the bathroom remodel, we'll install baseboards, door trim, faucet, and vanity, and check painted surfaces for any nicks or chips. We'll then add the final bathroom accessories, such as towel racks and shelves, to complete the look.

Once we're finished, you'll be able to enjoy your newly remodeled bathroom!

If you're planning a bathroom remodel project, it's important to prepare your home for the process. This is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive, and for good reason. Here are some tips for getting your home ready for a bathroom remodel:

  1. Clear the bathroom of all loose items such as towels, soap dispensers, and shower curtains to protect them from dust and potential damage during the remodeling process.

  2. Declutter the space around the bathroom, such as the hallway leading to it, to make it easier to reach the room with materials and equipment.

  3. Protect any furniture or fixtures that cannot be removed by covering them with cloth or plastic sheeting to prevent dust buildup.

  4. Consider your furry friends during the remodel by creating a special place for them in the house, away from the noise and stress of the project.

At Exceptional Exteriors and Renovations, we understand the importance of preparation and will work with you every step of the way to make your bathroom remodel a success.

At Exceptional Exteriors and Renovations, we understand that there is often confusion between renovations and remodels. However, they are two distinct home improvement services.

Renovations, which are considered to be lighter, involve superficial changes such as new paint or flooring. These adjustments can completely transform the look and feel of a bathroom, but they do not impact the room's functionality or structure.

On the other hand, bathroom remodels involve significant changes to the room's functionality and structure. This might include reworking plumbing, moving walls, and incorporating renovative tasks such as a fresh paint job.

Even if renovative tasks are performed during a bathroom remodeling project, it is still considered a remodel as it has changed the key functional aspects of the room. Keep in mind, remodels come in different sizes and scope - from full to partial remodels. In our next FAQ, we will delve into the differences between full and partial bathroom remodels.
