A homeowner can choose to have almost any budget, high or low for a project. The question is then, “What do you get for that particular budget?” The factors are many, such as DIY (do it yourself) or hire a professional. Check out our informative article about Who Will Build Your Remodeling Project. The extent of the work scope is also a major factor.

Doing this allows for checking the in-wall plumbing connections and electrical wiring then updating as needed. Plus, any rotted wood or mold can be addressed. New insulation and fresh, moisture resistant drywall and cement board can be installed. Some may opt to forgo these steps and tasks and simply do a bathroom makeover where the fixtures and tile are replaced and the wall components listed prior remain. Continue reading

A traditional bathroom remodel was going to exceed their budget and take much longer than they anticipated.
If we had a nickel for every time someone asked us how much a bathroom remodel in Monmouth County would cost, we’d have a whole lot more nickels than we’d know what to do with! The problem isn’t that we don’t want to answer the question (or that we’re holding out for more nickels!) but that it’s a very difficult and abstract question to answer. That’s because no two bathrooms are the same and remodeling two different things brings on so many variables that need to be accounted for. Continue reading
New owners of this 45 year old home in Morris County wanted to have some work completed before they moved in. On that list was the original hall bathroom. It was outdated, in disrepair, and there were indications of rotted wood in the outer wall and floor.
The project is a direct replacement, hall bathroom makeover project. The existing bathroom was gutted to the studs. Rotted wood was replaced and the outer wall was insulated. The new fixtures were placed in the same locations as the previous. The product selections were modest, yet stylish. Continue reading
These clients had just purchased a 1960’s center hall colonial on a quiet cul-de-sac in Morris County, NJ. While the overall layout of the home, wooded property, and quiet street were what they were looking for, the master bath area did not suit their needs.
