Bathroom remodels can be a great move if you're thinking of selling your home or simply to improve your own living space. But it can be a messy project.
In fact, if you do more than simply upgrade or a minor renovation, a full remodel can mean completely removing bathroom fixtures, cabinets, and sometimes portions of walls. And that adds up to a great deal of debris and trash.
What's a Bathroom Remodel Worth Anyway?
One of the questions many homeowners ask when contemplating a major remodel or other upgrades to their home is what return on investment they could see in terms of resale value. While you may only be pursuing your remodeling project for your own enjoyment and desire to improve your living space, it's still nice to know that the work and expense might add value, as well.
According to OpenDoor.com, for example, a full bathroom remodel averaged a 3.7 percent increase in resale value for median-priced homes in their markets.
On the other hand, Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report tracks the average cost of specific home improvements on a national, regional and statewide level. According to the 2021 report, for an average midrange bathroom remodel, there was an increase in a home's resale value of over $14,670, which represented a return of just over 60 percent on the cost of the project.
And what you replace or upgrade in your remodeling efforts can make a difference, as well.
An article at Discover. com noted the following insights,
Where can you see the biggest ROI? New tile, an updated cabinet or fixtures and brighter, more natural lighting will appeal to buyers. Usability and adding a touch of luxury are other factors to consider with remodels that include the following:
Adding a Jacuzzi tub or steam shower in the master bath
Installing heated floors
Adding a double sink
Installing a shower seat
So, the bottom line here is that a bathroom remodel can be a great project for several reasons and on many levels. And if you choose to take a DIY approach to this type of home improvement challenge, you may find that much of it is well within the average homeowner's skill set.
But there is still the issue with the debris...
When a Bathroom Remodel is No Longer Fun - Construction Debris Removal
Okay, we get it. Planning, designing, dreaming... even doing the shopping for fixtures, tile, and other materials can be a lot of fun. And, for some, even the demolition part of a DIY bathroom remodel can be fun.
But at some point it's no longer "fun" but requires a bit of hard work and results in quite a bit of debris and rubble.
The average bathtub takes up about 14 to 16 cubic feet of space, for example. And most standard bathroom single sink vanities are 30 to 48 inches wide and between 21 and 31 inches high. In other words, almost the size of a small clothes dryer. And, depending on the size of your bathroom, you might have a few cabinets to replace.
Then there are the other fixtures such as the lighting, possibly medicine cabinets, and even the toilet bowl and a separate shower. Oh, and then there's the piles of broken up tiling and perhaps broken sheetrock and other debris.
So, where are you going to put all this trash, junk, and debris while you're working on your beautiful bathroom makeover? And, more to the point, how are you going to remove and dispose of it all?
Good news! This part of the job does NOT have to be another DIY task. Sure, you could get a truck and take the time and do the work of loading all the junk and debris yourself. Then you could take it to the nearest landfill or waste transfer station and unload it all yourself.
But you won't be doing any work on the bathroom during all that time. And you still need to have a truck to make that happen.
Or you could simply call a professional construction debris removal firm like Junk King.
