What is the average bathroom remodel cost in Richardson, TX?

With home values on the rise in Dallas, Texas, many homeowners are now remodeling the essential spaces in their homes such as bathrooms and kitchens.  Many homeowners often begin their research by looking for the cost but will quickly find there are many variables in determining what the actual bathroom remodel cost is in Richardson, TX.  Each year a report is published by Remodeling Magazine titled, Cost vs Value.  The report compares the average cost of a project in your geographic area versus the value those projects retain at resale.   The 2017 Remodeling Cost vs Value Report can be found at www.costvsvalue.com.  ©2017 Hanley Wood Media Inc. As compiled, here in the Dallas area, the bathroom remodel cost can be recouped 59% to 61% across the board. 

The first thing a homeowner needs to recognize is that the bathroom remodel cost is typically based on style, size of space, material selections, cost of labor and any issues with electrical or plumbing.  This is where a remodeling contractor who understands the planning and execution process of a remodel is invaluable.  Some of the items that a remodeling contractor may bring to your attention when determining the bathroom remodel cost factors of a remodel are:

  • Fixtures and appliances: In most remodel cases, your current fixtures and appliances are no longer stylish or within current code restrictions. If you replace any of your current fixtures such as countertops, bathtub, toilet, sink, this will increase the cost because the originals will need to be removed and space made for the new ones. 
  • Changing the footprint: If you make any changes to the footprint such as removing or adding a closet or increasing the square footage, it will increase the cost of the remodel.  Whenever you start moving and relocating, you will also be changing the electrical wiring or plumbing.  This all adds to your labor and materials cost. 
  • Plumbing and Electrical: Keep in mind that occasionally, there are issues found with electrical or plumbing when you remodel, especially if you are changing the footprint. Electrical and plumbing codes change periodically throughout the years and it is likely codes have changed since the last time you remodeled. 

Once again, the cost of a remodel has many variables but average bathroom remodel cost (changing appliances and fixtures) ranges from $30,000 to more if you are turning your master bathroom into an oasis.  Bathroom remodels provide some of the highest resale returns as a home improvement project as reported in the 2017 Cost vs Value Report. This year saw the biggest year-over-year percentage increase in the value of several of the most expensive interior projects. Remodeling cost vs value becomes most favorable for upscale master suites, high-end bathroom and kitchen remodels and additions.  The values increased between 5.6% and 7.4%.  All of these increases were higher than the cost to remodel the projects suggesting that real estate professionals are rating home improvements higher than they did a decade ago.  This is likely do to the real estate market recovery around the United States, although Texas never suffered a huge crash.  And, Texas’ market is currently booming due to the increase in business relocations.
