Find Out How Much a Bathroom Remodel Costs in the South Denver Metro Area
Bathroom remodeling is an enjoyable process that can enhance the value of a home or make life more enjoyable. Of course, taking on such a project can lead to some trepidation. A homeowner has to figure out aspects like budget, design, and timeframe, along with having to look for the right contractor. The usual course of action is to solicit bids from a number of contractors. It can be hard to figure out what goes into computing a bathroom remodeling cost, which in turn makes it hard to determine what to expect from a reasonable bid.

Bathroom Remodeling Cost Considerations
Aside from their fee, your contractor will have a percentage dedicated to covering minor mistakes or mishaps that may occur. A pipe may be cut wrong or some tiles may be broken. A good contractor will factor these costs into their estimate, which is usually done by adding an additional 10% to material costs.
Back End Incidentals
Back end incidentals are costs that a business has to pay in order to stay open. Such costs include items like
- Legal services
- Vehicle Maintenance
- Office Supplies
The average consumer might not give much consideration to these costs, but they play a factor in computing the cost of a bathroom remodeling.
The bulk of a bathroom remodeling budget comes from the cost of labor and materials. The average salary for a worker is $30 an hour.
A typical job may involve three employees working for 40 hours a week for three weeks. This means that you’ll end up with 240 hours of normal pay for $10,800. With payroll taxes and worker’s compensation, the grand total for labor reaches around $13,500 for a bathroom remodeling project.
Moderately-priced materials can be around $8,000 to $10,000. This total can change depending on how upscale you’d like the bathroom remodeling project to be.
A mid-range bathroom remodeling project can average at approximately $25,000 to $30,000. If a contractor charges considerably more or less than that price, it is important to discuss how they came to that figure. Knowing the facts behind how estimates are made should give you a clear idea of how to wisely choose a contractor.

We’ve provided detailed information for each product to make the process of choosing materials easier.
The final factor in setting up your bathroom remodeling budget is your home’s value. It is common for a homeowner to spend anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of their property’s value on a bathroom remodeling project. For example, if one owns a home valued at $200,000, they should expect to spend anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000.
Homes with higher value tend to have higher costs associated with a bathroom remodeling project. This is because bathrooms are usually larger, with more luxurious fittings. If a homeowner’s property is valued at $1.5 million, they can reasonably expect a cost of $75,000 for a bathroom remodeling project.
Overall, if one scrimps on a bathroom remodeling project, costly repairs will be needed in the future.
