One thing that remodeling contractors usually will not do is to give ballpark estimates for bathroom renovation. After all, they do need to see the bathroom, at the very least, before throwing out a figure. This is perfectly understandable. But on the other side of things, you are a homeowner who simply wants to know how much this darn bathroom remodeling project might cost--before getting your hopes up.
The consensus among some local contractors is that a minimal bathroom renovation, using contractor-grade materials, might cost $16,000 to $17,500. This varies by location, your house, and the mood and temperament of the contractor.
