We recently had a foundation leak, and had a company come in and clean it. However, their quote for the reconstruction was above our budget.
Area Approximately: 8 by 10 feet
Repair includes :
Walls: putting in a few wooden wall supports, a few pieces of insulation, vapor barrier, a few pieces of dry wall, reinstalling the saved wood paneling and trim.
Floor; putting a new piece of carpet padding down, and attaching saved carpet back to the floor.
We need a new vanity installed, sinks, toilet, we are going from a single sink to a double, plumbing comes through the floor, the vanity is set up for plumbing to attach through the wall - one of the drawers in the vanity will need to be shortened for pipes to fit. Would like a new light installed over the mirror, will need to change how the electrical is set up (previous owners moved the wiring). We are having the floor replaced by the flooring company, and we would like to coordinate the rest of the room at the same time so that we are not without the main bathroom for too long.
The house (from the early 60s) currently has a toilet and tub in a small enclosed area with two doors. The doors each go into separate areas that each have a vanity and sink. One of those areas also has a walk-in closet and a door into the master bedroom. The other has a door into the hallway. It's sort of a combination of a hotel room washroom and a cheater on-suite.
Plan A: We want to totally gut and reconfigure the space to have a regular closet (not walk-in) opening from the bedroom, a long and somewhat narrow three-piece on-suite and a three-piece square-ish main bathroom, all within the original overall 119 x 124" space. All of the plumbing and some of the electrical need to be moved, and a toilet and a shower added. Most of the walls will be moved.
Plan B: Keep the layout much the same, remove one doorway into the tub & toilet area to create a three-piece main bathroom. Close-off the other doorway to the tub & toilet area. Add a toilet to the vanity area off the bedroom,a closet door from the bedroom and a closet wall (to divide the closet and on-suite).
I am sure that's clear as mud. However, all we are looking for right now is an idea of the cost difference between the two plans to be able to make a decision so we can apply for the building permit and start planning. In both cases, we are replacing the baby blue tub & surround, toilet and sinks. If you can help us with a rough cost difference between the plans, it would be greatly appreciated.PLEASE NOTE: at this point we are only considering local are (K/W, Cambridge, Ayr, Guelph) tradespeople/contractors.
I have a 20yr old condo in Waterloo. I would like to upgrade and modernize the bathroom.
It is about 50 sqft. I would like to upgrade the plumbing, install enclosures around the bathtub ie remove the shower curtain, and re tile the floor and the shower enclosure.
Everything is operational at present.
Can you give me a ball park estimate in terms of (a) cost of materials (using basic stuff) (b) labour and (c) number of days to complete.
If your estimate is attractive I can arrange a site visit.
1. remove old tub, tile, probably drywall in shower area, toilet and vanity and replace with new ones.
2. remove toilet and vanity and replace.
3. remove and replace neo angle shower and possibly a couple of sheets of drywall.
Not moving any plumbing take out put in all in same spots 3 separate bathrooms.
Looking to revamp a large bathroom. Currently has small corner shower stall and a large jacuzzi corner tub and one-sink vanity. Would like to have a larger shower that butts up against the corner tub. Ideally, with glass shower doors/walls, new tiling, an in-shower seat/ledge and shelves, and new tiling to match around the tub. If budget allows, a new two-sink vanity would also be great.
I've just purchased a home the home is 40years old. All new items (tub, vanity,toilet and tiling) will be purchased by myself with the advise of the contractor. The Main bathroom needs to be reno. It's not a large bathroom, but needs all existing items (tub/toilet/vanity/tile/floor) taken out and replaced. We will needs all new items installed. I need to know a timeline, and price. I am also interested in having the hardwood floors refinished,stained and sealed, We're looking at no more than 700sf of flooring to be refinished. I would also like a timeline and price.
We live in a townhouse condo and we currently have an ensuite bathroom that is a work in progress, however, we're not sure how next to proceed with a new shower and this is where we got stuck.
What has been done so far:
-old vanities have been removed
-plumbing for new vanities has been completed
-wo new vanities and taps have been purchased.
-wall tiles from around the tub has been removed
-new wall tiles have been purchased.
-shower has been mostly removed.
What is left to do:
-Lay new tile floor, which is less than 90 sq.ft. Floor tiles have not yet been purchased.
-Replace bathtub and tile walls, which is about 75 sq.ft. Tiles have been purchased but have made no decisions on bath tub yet. We were thinking of a free standing tub but we are not set on this and would like input.
-Install new vanities and taps.
-Install new shower- we are undecided as to what to do with the shower at this time as it is a strange shape that does not work with off the shelf shower kits. The shower was a 35” x 35” neo angle shower in tile, we would like to remove at least one of the side walls to get more light in the shower. Shower can be done in tile or store bought walls and base just depending on what works best in the space.
-Painting walls and replacing the toilet are optional at this point.
We're looking for someone who is willing to work with us and provide ideas for the bathroom...especially on the shower component. We are quite flexible with timing and are willing to accommodate your schedule to make this work for both of us.
We have started the removal but feel it could be done more efficiently with the correct tools.
It was a ceramic tiled shower stall about 5x3 which we now want to replace with a corner shower stall. Before we can buy the stall and get a plumber to put it in we need to get the space ready.
We need the remaining floor ripped out as well as the half of the wall that remains and new drywall installed.
We are looking for a company to give us a quote concerning the removal of our tile and 5 foot tub, the repair of the wood below and bringing the side wall of our shower/tub up to code. We require a plumber to fix and install new pipes for proper waterflow as well as assistance with the purchase and install of a new non-acrylic tub, tile and corner shelving. The property is a townhouse rental property with students currently residing in it so a company that can come in during the day and keep a tight timeline is ideal. Location is Waterloo between King and Weber.
Two small rooms exist, one finished , one unfinished are to be converted into one larger bedroom with a closet along one wall. This room requires a sub-floor and adequate insulation on two sides. Electrical box needs to be attractively enclosed and a new ceiling needs to be installed and a door needs to be removed and the wall rebuilt to cover in the door space. Another extension of this work will be a small refinishing of the wall outside the new bedroom . We require some ceiling lights in the new ceiling.
This is not a large space, but would appear/feel much roomier with a redesign
Square Footage = 72.24
The house is 12 years old, bathroom fixtures are original (most are builder-quality)
Not planning to change the location of any fixtures
(ie. work with existing plumbing set-up)
-Remove 4 fixtures: shower stall, corner Jacuzzi tub, single sink and wooden cabinet + large attached-to-wall mirror, and toilet
-Remove ceramic floor and wall tiles
-Install walk-in glass-walled shower (prefer no sill), and possibly shower package with overhand and separate hand shower
-Redesign and install counter counter top, under-sink cabinet (prefer floating cabinet with sliding drawers), sink and possibly other cabinets/shelves in space opened up by removing corner tub
-Install new toilet
-Replace flooring, baseboards, wall coverings, paint
-Replace and install faucets, lighting, fan
-replace accessories: towel racks, toilet roll holder, mirrors, including lighted magnifying mirror on retractable arm
Please provide detailed estimate/quote including products and labour
Any chance of accomplishing this during March break?
The house is over 100 years old but has excellent foundation. The space is somewhat limited ` 100 sq ft
Would be a no-frill standard bathroom with a toilet, small sink, and small shower
We have a basic floor plan
A plumber would be required.
May require addtional services alter to finish the rest of the basement
Just discovered that there is moisture build up behind the tiles in the shower. Looks like the grout has been broken away which is probably the cause of it. Cocking it up would stop the moisture from getting inside but I suspect there has already been some damage done behind the tiles so the wall behind the shower will probably need to get replaced.
We had family living in the basement, and without us knowing, the shower developed cracks in the grout/tile and started to leak into the wall/baseboard. We'd like to rip out the shower, and replace it with something that won't have this problem again. As well, we want to ensure the ventilation fan is sufficient, or replace it.
new sink and faucet, replace vanity light fixture
new window (approx 3' x 4')
possibly new toilet, new self-closing seat definitely,
remove over-toilet cabinet shelving, replace with new and/or under-counter storage
new towel /toilet roll fittings
re-paint on whole room (approx 8'6" x 8'6") and baseboards
work with existing:
ceramic tile floor (clean/re-grout?)
Vanity mirrow installation to remain as-is
walk-in shower and spa tub remain as-is
Other possible jobs - new fixtures in powder room
paint master bedroom
our objective: add re-sale appeal and value
main reno is ensuite bathroom
house in 12-15 years old - everything still in reasonable shape
