Hi there, I want to pull out an old bathtub/tile and replace it with a new shower with tile and glass Sliding door.

Trying to create a budget ... how much should I budget for demo and new install?

Of course I understand tile costs can vary but for simplify sake, white subway tile.

Hi Laura,

With high end finish you are from 6,500.00 to 7,500.00

If that is the only change in the bathroom.

If you are changing all the flooring, backslash behind the vanity etc it will go up.

Hello Laura ,

First, we would need to do a demolition for the pre- exisiting washroom . I also understand we are also required to install a new standup shower with linear tiles . This should cost anywhere from

$4500-$5500 excluding vanities & backsplash .

As you can see you have many estimates that range from 4500 up to 7500, as you suggested the cost of tile can vary from $5 to $15.00 per sqft, glass doors can range from $600 0f the shelf to thousands of dollars for custom glass. Please fell free to reach out and we can come out and give you a proper estimate.
