Wondering what it should cost to have my tub replaced with a new tub and direct to stud surround and cap. I was quoted 5700 tax in with removal of old tub and surround and drywall behind it. It seems high to me.
Hello, I just quoted a job where I'm ripping out the walls and tub and bathroom floor. Installing the underlay, building a walk in shower, waterproofing and reinstalling fixtures. Plumbing is included. The customer is responsible for purchasing the tiles and fixtures. I'm only charging 4000. I could be a bit on the low side but it does seem to be a bit padded in my opinion. Get multiple quotes to compare.
Are you in London, Ontario? I would ask the company to detail your estimate: cost of Removing The old unit, Rough in( new abs, drainage, waterlines, shower rough in, framing for cap) : the cost of a new tub with cap, a new shower/tub kit, pick up material, Disposal, and warranty.
Just to note: installing a tub with a cap is hard to install, not impossible, but hard.
If you send me the details, I can confirm if it is a ok price.
Yes seems very high
Due diligence on your part is paramount in order to protect your wallet AND to ensure to the best of your ability, that you ARE dealing with a professional. Time consuming, yes. But well worth it.
5 estimates min.
Ask for previous project pics.
Insist on a written contract!!! Contract should detail the full scope, your preferred conditions,
contractor conditions, start / finish dates, change work order details, an exit strategy for all parties should things go array AND a payment schedule.
Upon receiving at least 5 estimates, you'll at least be able to determine a price range based on contractors comparing apples to apples based on the scope.
Any red flags...listen to your gutt and eliminate that contractor.
Best of luck....
