It is a known fact that the bathroom is one of the most essential pieces in a house and arguably one of the most frequently used. Also, due to the fact that so many different systems go into the structure of a bathroom, such as plumbing, electricity, and heating, it is considered the most likely to deteriorate more quickly than any other room in the house.

How Long Do Bathroom Renovations Take?

You can expect a bathroom renovation in Toronto to be completed in 23 days. If no work is done on the weekends, however, the renovation process can take up to roughly 4-5 weeks.

Generally speaking, though, the amount of time it takes to renovate a bathroom will depend on the renovation contractor, how skilled the renovation team is, and what the renovation requirements are.

What Is Included in Bathroom Renovation Fees?

This question is one of the most frequently asked when it comes to bathroom renovation, and for good reason! There are a lot of variables in a renovation process that it can be difficult to give an exact number on renovation costs. However, it is a good idea to learn about the different elements that are included in bathroom renovation costs:

Bathroom Measurements and Area

When making adjustments to any part of the house, taking measurements is in order. The first step in a bathroom renovation project is to take measurements and find the exact area in which the work will be done. It is even more important to correctly measure a bathroom because it is usually a small area, so having accurate measurements will allow the contractor and the customer to make the best use of a tight space.

Prefabricated Bathroom Vs. Custom Bathroom

Similar to a prefabricated kitchen, prefab bathrooms are a lot cheaper to install than custom bathrooms. Prefab bathroom is cheaper by an average of 10% to 20% than custom bathrooms. The reason being is that custom bathrooms are built on site which mandates the presence of carpenters, interior designers, and more crew members throughout the renovation process. Also, custom bathrooms can be designed to suit the client’s requirements to a tee because they are built specifically for this particular project.

Nevertheless, the design and the materials for prefab bathrooms are already prepared and have been in use, which, in turn, makes them not as demanding to work with as custom bathrooms are.

Labour

Depending on whether you go for a prefab or a custom bathroom, labour costs play a big role in bathroom renovation price calculations. The costs of labour on their own, assuming the customer provides the materials, will roughly be around $3,000 and can add up to $10,000.

Now, this number varies depending on the renovation contractor’s skill and previous renovation experience. And although it is vital to stay within your budget, labour and the renovation team are things you should not try to save money on for the most part.

Bathroom Parts

Bathroom parts that are calculated in renovation costs include:

  • Waterproofing
  • Shower stall
  • Bathroom fan installation
  • Faucets and fixtures; regular and freestanding
  • Bathroom sink
  • Bathroom vanity
  • New bathroom cabinets
  • New toilet installation
  • Bathtub installation
  • Shower controller

Moreover, there are typically two kinds of bathtubs you can install in a renovated bathroom. If you are going with a standard, regular bathroom that does not include many features, yet is considered budget-friendly, you can expect to pay as much $5,000. Whereas for a more luxurious bathtub with mosaic tiles and a linear drain system, your tab can reach up to $7,500. So the price of the bathtub really depends on the type of design you have in mind and the features you are seeking.

The best shower controllers to install are ones that have a thermostatic mixing valve. What they do is maintain the temperature of the shower water when another water fixture in the bathroom is being simultaneously used. You may also install a non-thermostatic valve even though it is better to install a temperature-controlling one.

Additional Parts

There are extra elements that can affect the overall cost of a bathroom renovation which include:

  • New floor installation
  • Coffered ceiling
  • Lighting including LED spotlights, pendant lights, and accent lights
  • Electric heated floors
  • Baseboards for cabinets, walls, and bathtubs
  • Crown moulding
  • Mold-resistant drywall for bathroom walls
  • Drywall for the bathtub and/or shower

While there are many flooring options available on the market, the best type of flooring to use in bathrooms is porcelain or ceramic tile, and the total cost of flooring will depend on the size of the tiles, the material from which they are made, and is usually calculated per square feet.

Additionally, flooring and in-floor heating go hand in hand. A feature expected to be a huge trend in 2019, in-floor heating is considered energy-efficient and can save you a lot of money because of how sustainable it is when it comes to generating heat.

How Much Does a Bathroom Renovation Cost?

An average bathroom renovation in Toronto will likely cost somewhere between $7,000 and $17,000 in total. Albeit a wide range, the number ultimately depends on the client’s budget, the amount of labour involved, and the types of materials that will be used in the renovation process.

KITCHEN RENOVATION

kitchen renovated in toronto

Nowadays, kitchen renovations are one of the most common renovation services Toronto residents seek. This is mainly because whether you are renting your home, selling it, or are just looking to elevate your kitchen for your own personal use, the kitchen is an essential part of any household.

According to a study, the average Canadian spends more than 6 hours in the kitchen per week. This statistic goes to demonstrate the value of a well-constructed kitchen in Canadians’ everyday lives. This is why it is essential to have a high-functioning, state-of-the-art kitchen, for your own comfort, for a potential tenant, or even for your home resale value in case you want to sell it in the future.

When to Renovate a Kitchen?

If a kitchen is a few decades old, the appliances are bound to begin to deteriorate and the plumbing to gradually decay. You may even find your tiles chipping or your floor badly scratched or stained. Not only do these things reduce the overall value of your house, but they could also make your kitchen an impractical nuisance and render it unsafe for day-to-day use.

Moreover, if you find yourself dealing with a persistent plumbing or electricity issue that impedes your kitchen from performing at its fullest capacity, it is probably time to invest in a kitchen renovation.

What Is Included in the Average Kitchen Renovation Costs

Kitchen measurements

Measurements and Area

The very first step to estimating kitchen renovation costs is by walking through the property and taking necessary measurements. This includes measuring the areas, floors, walls, and ceilings, all of which will eventually be calculated and added to the total kitchen renovation price.

Furthermore, certain renovation work sometimes requires the contractor to shave or even tear down some of the structure wall. This is also something to keep in mind when taking measurements.

Prefabricated Kitchen Vs. Custom Kitchen

In terms of renovation expenses, there is a difference between prefabricated and custom kitchens. First off, a prefabricated kitchen — or a prefab or modular kitchen — is one that is built off-site and is later shipped to the customer’s house, whereas a custom kitchen is one that is constructed on site, at the client’s house, right then and there.

When it comes to renovation pricing, prefabricated kitchens are 30% cheaper than custom kitchens in general. The reason for that lies in that prefab kitchens are already designed and only await installation; however, with custom kitchens, the design is determined according to what the client desires and what best suits their property.

Choosing kitchen materials

Kitchen Renovation Materials

In terms of a kitchen renovation, there is a wide variety of materials that are used. Depending on the part of the kitchen that is being worked on, the material is accordingly decided. Generally, it is important to choose building materials that are durable can withstand moisture, especially in a kitchen.

The reasons that can affect the price of renovation materials are:

  • The type of material used and what it is used for
  • The aesthetic appeal of the material and its ease of design
  • The level of the material’s quality

Kitchen Renovation Labour

Labour is one of the biggest factors that affect the overall cost of a kitchen renovation. The reason why labour plays such an important role in the fee calculating process is the fact that the outcome of the work will heavily depend on the skill and expertise that a renovation contractor has and the previous successes they have accomplished. It goes without saying that the more experienced the contractor is, the higher your chances are at getting the kitchen of your dreams swimmingly.

Bear in mind that the main two factors that influence the ultimate costs of a kitchen renovation process are area and measurements in addition to labour. While factors like materials, kitchen parts, and appliances are just as important, a client can expect the fees covering area and measurements as well as labour to remain the same all throughout.

Kitchen Parts

These are parts that are specifically used in kitchens including:

  • Kitchen countertops
  • Kitchen faucets and fixtures
  • Garbage disposal
  • Kitchen backsplash
  • New kitchen cabinets
  • Electrical appliance extensions

Although it is a good idea to consult a professional renovator, kitchen appliances are usually supplied by the customer, not by the renovation company. However, what the kitchen renovation contractor can do is help you with appliance positioning, as well as make sure all plumbing and electrical work is properly installed according to the appliance’s requirements.

Moreover, some renovation contractors will recommend potential kitchen suppliers and appliance brands who offer high-quality products for good prices.

Additional Kitchen Renovation Costs

When considering renovation for your kitchen, there might be some elements you are looking to add that will not affect the functionality of your kitchen, but will enhance its aesthetic appeal and overall appearance. Those elements include:

  • Electric heated floors
  • A kitchen island with an outlet
  • New flooring
  • Lighting including LED spotlights, pendant lights, and accent lights
  • Crown moulding
  • Cabinet baseboards and wall baseboards
  • Coffered ceiling
  • Kitchen island
kitchen renovations

It is important to note that adding an island in your kitchen has to adhere to construction and safety standards. For example, an island that is more than 2 ft. in length must contain a power outlet inside with one plug at a minimum. If need be, you may have to knock down a wall in order to install the outlet and extend power cords, or extend cables from the basement all the way to the kitchen.

It is critical to hire a skilled renovation company when it comes to your house because in the event you wish to resell your house, the property must pass a comprehensive home inspection to make sure every part of the house abides by Ontario safety standards.
