Planning for your bathroom remodel in Bakersfield
Homeowners in Bakersfield’s historic neighborhoods, like Oleander/Sunset or Westchester, are the most likely to find themselves in need of bathroom remodeling. However, any home in Kern County could probably benefit from a renovation to make it perfectly suited to the homeowner’s needs.
When planning a bathroom remodel in Bakersfield, your primary considerations should be:
Materials for flooring, fixtures and countertops
Bathroom showrooms in Bakersfield display different examples of materials and fixtures if you want to see and feel them before you decide. Online bathroom planners also help you design your new bathroom.
In some cases, the City of Bakersfield must approve your plans and issue permits before you can begin work. Bathroom remodeling contractors are able to help with this process.
How to find a good contractor?
General contractors that offer home construction and remodeling services in Bakersfield typically hire subcontractors to complete bathroom remodeling projects while they supervise. General contractors must hold a valid license and insurance. The California Contractors State License Board provides helpful basic information for consumers considering hiring a contractor in Bakersfield.
In California, specialty contractors have licenses in specific areas that require extra training in the relevant trade. Specialty contractors that might perform bathroom remodeling work include:
Some remodeling contractors are experts at bathroom renovations, but it is not a specifically-licensed trade. Bathroom remodeling contractors are typically general contractors or specialty contractors with experience in the industry and licenses in trades pertaining to bathrooms.
If you’re concerned about your environmental impact, some bathroom remodeling contractors in California also specialize in eco-friendly solutions for home remodeling projects.
How long does it take to remodel a bathroom?
An average bathroom remodel takes about five weeks. However, some bathroom remodeling contractors in Bakersfield specialize in bathrooms and can change fixtures or components in just one day.
When setting your schedule, allow time beforehand for planning and ordering materials and leave extra time at the end for unexpected delays. Your bathroom will likely be unusable for some time during your renovation, so plan accordingly.
How much does a bathroom remodel cost in Bakersfield?
The average bathroom remodel cost in Bakersfield is $5,000 - $8,700. While small bathroom remodel costs will likely be cheaper than remodeling a large bathroom, pricing depends on many variables.
Factors that affect the bathroom renovation costs include:
Square footage: larger bathrooms cost more to renovate
Materials: premium materials like marble or granite significantly affect prices
Fixtures: custom products cost more than off-the-shelf
Specialty work: upgrades to existing plumbing or electrical systems are expensive
Scope of work: adding square footage, changing the layout and adding cabinets all add considerable cost
Remember to factor in the cost of additional repairs or upgrades that might accompany a bathroom project as well, like leaky plumbing or a new water heater.
