Plumbing Costs When Renovating

If renovating your bathroom has been on your mind lately, you know there are a multitude of things to consider. One of the most important that comes to mind for many is the cost associated with any renovation.



One thing that is sure to possibly triple your plumbing costs is to rearrange the layout of the bathroom. This would include moving the shower, sink, tub, etc. The further you move your fixtures away from their respective lines, the more complicated and costlier it may get. In order to access the pipes to move these fixtures around, the floor needs to be pulled up and the plumbing between the floor joists will need to be modified. This means additional time for the plumber and possible more materials. Both of which equal to a higher price than you probably initially imagined.


How well do you know the construction of your home? Mini-projects can pop up in the middle of your project. A common occurrence for older homes is finding out the plumbing isn’t up to code halfway through the renovation. Your plumbing may need to be replaced entirely, meaning more money. You may be able to get a copy of your home’s plans at your local building department to determine if your plumbing is up to code.


An average bathroom remodel is $9,555. However, most homeowners spend between $5,900 and $14,000. Bathroom remodels require levels of expertise in several areas such as plumbing, electric, and construction. Partner up with your plumbing professional and your contractor to plan the unexpected costs your particular project may encounter. Discuss how they handle mistakes, damages, and repairs that can come up in the middle of the main project. Ensure there is some sort of warranty or guarantee to back up the project too.
