if the work you are doing this work with permits that's another thing you have to consider cose when you get permits you cant just start and finish in one round
there are a few steps you have to follow - ELECTRICAL - PLUMBING - INSULATION - BUILDING - and sometimes depending in the town you also will need FIRE
and after you pass all those wait for the final
so in average one bathroom 8x8' it will take about two weeks or more depending the town inspection schedule.
He just dug this up to promote his company. Complete with hyperlink in the text.

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


The pricing is subjective, client could want a $200 vanity or $2000. I just quoted out a bubbler Jacuzzi tub with chromatheripy for a client in Chatham and the unit costs almost $6000 ! Still have to add a drain, faucet, mixer, plumber to hook it all up, electrician to run a new circuit, carpentry to build a deck and then there is the granite top.
Also, price varies by tile size, pattern, substrate, amount of preparation needed... im not sure how anyone gets these done in less then 2 weeks, even with an army that does sub par work

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


I figure for 3 weeks and hope for 2. Its just to small to work more than 2 men. then there is always a surprise or 2. I charge more for a larger bath but honestly it does not take much longer to do labor wise.

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


I have people ask me all the time... "How much does a new bathroom cost?" I always reply... "How much does a car cost?"

Or course their answer is to stare at me for a minute and then ask "What kind of car?" ...and then they realize that they've asked me a questions that you can't answer that simply.

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


We do alot of kitchen and bath remodels and I have never done the same job twice. Just way to many variables with product selection, site conditions, access paths through the house etc. I always budget 4 weeks for a typical bath and thats full gut with all new everything. By the time your done with subs, inspections, custom counters and tile thats usually just enough time. I always keep at least one man on site from start to finish to oversee subs and self perform our share, we add value to his slow times by doing small things that clients appreciate like letting the dog out or bringing in the garbage cans, maybe some good cleaning of adjacent areas that we may have spread dust to. People appreciate these little touches and as slong as progress can be seen or pointed out then they are happy. Just remember that no two companies will be the same so forget what everyone else is doing and bid your project for you and your client. As long as you allow yourself enough time to do good work at a fair price then you will make money and the client will be thrilled. At that point any reasonable time frame will be acceptable but the thrilled part is the key. My pops always said that if you make a client happy they might not tell a soul but if you **** that client off they will be sure to tell everyone that they know!

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


Lets assume there are two of you working.
1 day for demo and cleanup ( 16 hrs )
1 day carpentry (16 hrs)
1 day plumbing rough in (16 hrs)
1/2 day electrical rough in (8)
1 day GWB / prep for paint (16)
1 day flooring / cabinet / trim / door (16)
1 day plumbing install ( tub / sink etc) (16)
1/2 day paint (8)
1 day install all the accessories, lights and clean up (16)
1 day time incurred picking up material etc.. (16)

roughly 140-170 hours - depending on what scope you are doing and what material is available.

That seems a little steep, ever for a brand like Kohler. There are websites with brand names that blow those prices out of the water.

When I give allowances I always go high, makes them feel good when they go below it.

By the way I purchased my present kitchen sink from you guys and I love it.

There are plenty of brands that cost far more than that. Most of what my customer's pick wouldn't fit in that budget. Builder's will use cheap sets all day but, when it's a remodel, the HO usually picks something much nicer.

I've done 5x8's for as little as $3k and as much as $11k but you could spend twice that if you had a mind to.

Ya I just did a 4' x 4' shower only for $12k and it could have easily gone well over that.

Re: Man Hours To Remodel A Small Bathroom


We just installed a 5k Bain bathtub with bubbles, lights, aroma therapy, heated backrest etc.

Baths and kitchens revolve around bells and whistles.

Just priced another one where the mosiac tile is $23 a sqft my cost.
totaled over 2k just in mosiac tile, add marble listellos, field tile for walls and floor and the tile alone was quite expensive.

I only use local sources so if there is a problem I have a brick and mortar store to go to and a business relationship that leads to its own advantages.

Using all these web based services does nothing more than take money out of your local economy.
That might not hurt now but in the future it could be another story.

Plus most people don't do this for a living so it is very difficult for them to envision the final product, it helps alot to have something right in front of you on the showroom floor to sit in/on etc.

Nice. It sounds like a very profitable job.

I did want to bring a few thing to your attention in regards to the quoted text. For most E-Commerce I completely agree, however there are exceptions to every rule. We are an exception. MR Direct was started by a builder and a granite fabricator, they took the problems they experience in the industry and corrected those. In doing this a way to keep the profit in your local economy was developed, but a bit closer to home....your bank account (opposed to the showrooms). When it comes to the visualization barrier we actually have a solution for that as well, thanks to a new technology. This technology takes the pressure off the customer. Allowing them to shop in the comfort of their home while bringing the profits directly to you. We have a patent pending and exclusive rights to this technology in the industry. I have not gone into details as this is an open forum and it would undermine what we have created. If you would like detailed information on what we've done I would be happy to help in a private message.

When it comes to the actual touch and feel of a product. Your 100% correct some people just need that experience. There's no doubt about it which is why the showroom is a great additional source. However in the same breath many don't need to physically touch the product. If they can be assured it's of high quality, can see what it looks like installed, and know it will match perfectly it isn't always necessary. Now this may not apply to sit in/on products but for the sinks and faucets they can only feel so many before they realized that certain materials feel/perform the same.

Good to hear your getting these jobs. We are projecting our biggest year yet, looks the more and more people are starting invest in their home again. Good news for everyone.
