I'm looking to get my main bathroom re-tiled. I will be pulling out the toilet and vanity, stripping the floor to plywood (replacing bad plywood if necessary), and stripping the wall/tub surround of existing tile right to the studs.

What would I be looking at for the rough cost to tile floor, accent wall, and tub surround including ceiling? Cost including waterproofing and tiling (excluding cost of tiles of course). Tiling will be 12"x24" tiles for all areas.

42 square feet of flooring

56 square feet of non water proof wall

72 square feet of water proof wall in tub area

18 square feet of ceiling in tub area

6 square feet of water proof tub deck (top)

12 square feet of water proof tub skirt (front)

Thank you for your insight!

Based on your description, I'd ballpark that at about 2000 to 2500. A proper estimate is advised as it could be more or less.

the prices in Ontario are different than BC where I do live.If I take the project than I estimate whole work and now is hard to say how much person can ask you if do not see the project which working on it can come some another issue which has to be add to the total price.

thank you

Hi Kyle.

I'll try to answer your questions as best I can. A picture would have really helped to get an idea of your bathroom. I recently finished a project similar to yours.

Here's the what I would estimate the cost to do your project would be.

Waterproofing-Kerdi board+installation=$1200.00.

Flooring installation/grout with ditra uncoupling membrane=$1000.00.

Tile tub area, ceiling & deck/skirt with Schluter Rondec profile= $3500.00

Accent wall with Schluter profile=$800.00.

I do most of my work in York Region.

I hope this helps.

Kyle had the most accurate price..this is a major tile job and you want a pro ..I have seen so many leaking ones due to bad installs..Most of my own full shower tile jobs ran from $5-10,000 and needed at lest 3 different tradesmen not to mention my profit...Cheers
