Bathroom remodels run the risk of emptying your wallet. Here is how to save money on your bathroom renovation
Size of the bathroom will change
Resize only if absolutely necessary to accommodate your needs. This is the single most expensive aspect of the bathroom renovation.
Load-bearing walls must be removed or moved
Explore possibilities of expanding through other walls--walls that do not bear weight.
Walls cannot support additions of new vents, ducts, wiring, windows
Walls do not necessarily have to be replaced to accept these additions. Raise this issue again with your contractor or seek a second opinion.
Drywall is water-damaged; needs full replacement
often must be completely replaced in bathroom renovations due to the high moisture content. Confirm with another contractor that full
replacement is needed.
