How can I get a bathroom install in basement for an affordable price?
Over my years of experience I found that a majority of your cost lives in the plumbing. Running your drain for toilet shower and sink and having them tied into your main plumbing stack is undoubtably the majority of your cost. You can save considerable money by shopping at Retail supply centres like Lowe s, Home Depot and Rona and looking for discontinued or clearance items that are regularly available it just takes a little bit of legwork. Also refurbished items at locations like Tim s reusable s, The Restore are a good avenue to travel in saving considerable dollars.
Locate the new bathroom as close to the drain running under the floor as possible. This will cut down the amount of concrete cutting and removal. Material for the new run. And time and material for new concrete pour.
Find the best deal you can on the tiolet, vanity and sink, prefab shower if you whant one. If you want a bath, get the bedt deal you can on a fiberglass tub shower combination.
Can you tile yourself? If not find a reasonable cost for the tile labor. And look for deals on the tile itself.
If you are looking to have a contractor like myself complete the whole project be sure to use someone reputable. Not just the cheapest price. Your resl savings is on the material end. And finishings.
If this is a bathroom for use with shower, tub etc for someone in a basement bedeoom, I would also install in floor heating.this is costly however. Insulate with ridged foam. Then frame. And then add additional bat insulation within the framed wall.
Hope this helps.
Yes , one of your major cost is the plumbing work and tying in to your existing sewer and
water lines. I some situations the floor can be built up to house all your plumbing and "Save" you from cutting into the existing slab. Obviously you do require good
clearance height in your basement for the step you will be adding to get into your bathroom. These type of situations are usually done when there is a very high water table and possible sewer back ups.
