Small Bathroom Labor Costs...is this reasonable?
So we just started the process of getting quotes for our two bathroom remodels. Master bath is 7 x 7 1/2, and Hall bath is about 8x9.
We have only received one quote so far, from a contractor that has done several houses in the neighborhood and was told was very reasonable. We requested quotes for labor only (and basic materials such as drywall, spackling, tape, etc) since we are still in the process of picking out materials. Quotes do not include tile, grout, fixtures, vanity, toilets, tubs, glass shower surround, or ceiling fan.
We asked that the contractor quote on demo down to the studs, install new drywall on ceiling and walls, tile shower in master bath (install tub and tile surround in hall bath), tile floors, install lights and fixtures, and install of ceiling fan in bathrooms to roof (we currently have no ceiling fans in bathrooms).
Quotes did not include the install of the glass frameless shower, tile on walls or ceiling (which we are not opting for), dumpster rental, or painting.
We were quoted $7500 for hall bath and $8500 for the master bath. We live just outside Philadelphia. Is this the ballpark of what we should be expecting just in labor costs? Or is it high? low? I was expecting much less since our rooms are so tiny and I was told the contractor was very reasonble. What should we budget for the materials (particularly the glass frameless shower)? Just trying to get a sense of total costs.
