Bathroom Remodeling In Your Calabasas Home
October 9, 2013
Bathroom remodeling Calabasas and/or renovations may generally include replacing the shower, bathtub or towel bars, changing the bathroom’s vanity, flooring, sink, wall paint etc. To be successful with remodeling the bathroom as a unit, each homeowner will need to know and understand the extent of the type of remodeling they would want to do and what it would specifically entail.
Bathroom remodeling can be grouped into three parts namely surface alterations only, layout changes and complete/extensive remodeling. Homeowners may opt to do some surface alterations if the supporting structures (that is, the walls, joists etc) of their bathrooms are sound and they still want to retain the sizes and layouts of their bathrooms. Layout changes will generally include some modification of the bathroom layout and some surface-level alterations.
A complete or extensive remodeling may typically involve doing some structural modifications like replacing rotted wall studs or joists and damaged windows, dealing with moisture related issues etc in addition to some surface and layout alterations.
Surface-level remodeling or alterations only can be carried out in a bathroom to create a more functional unit/space. Such alterations will generally cover the range of what the homeowner can simply repair or cover up, and should not involve moving any of the plumbing structure of the units in the bathroom. Some of what will fall into this category include bathroom wall painting, the covering up of some little holes/dents in the lower portion or part of the walls of a bathroom with some pre-fabricated wainscot boards etc.
To change the layout of a bathroom on the other hand will not only involve the movement of some physical units like the sink, but also the alteration of the underlying electrical system and plumbing structure of such units too. Moving the plumbing structure in a bathroom will generally increase the remodeling costs of homeowners significantly. A complete or extensive bathroom remodeling will typically involve the tearing away of some structural part of the bathroom, some demolition, plumbing, electrical works, tiling etc.
Bathroom remodeling is usually an expensive project to embark on, homeowners would therefore need to ensure that they can afford to remodel before starting on a project in order to be able to complete it. They should ideally select what they would do based on their budgets. While each homeowner may be able to do some remodeling tasks by themselves, they may however need to hire some professionals, like those at LA Bathroom Remodeling, for some other aspects of their projects too.
