How Much Does It Cost to Renovate a Bathroom in Brisbane?

It takes more than an article about how much does it cost to renovate a bathroom in Brisbane to pin down an exact price. A firm figure only happens after you have found a bathroom renovation company you are happy with and have sat down with them to discuss the plans for your new bathroom.

Once they have taken your specifications on board, they will then need at least a couple of days to do the drawings and work out the material and labour costs. There may also be some back and forth as you consider your options and modify the design to fit your budget.

Bathroom Renovation Brisbane: 5 Smart Questions to Ask Your Bathroom Renovator

After six years in the building industry in Brisbane, I have seen just about every which way a bathroom renovation can go wrong. Of course, I’m not talking about these debacles from an insider’s point of view. No, I’m talking about it from the guy who gets called in to put everything right.

Whenever I do a little digging, I discover, in just about every situation, the client is in their sorry predicament because they didn’t ask the right questions when doing their due diligence.

To help you get your bathroom renovation off to a good start and a superb finish here are five questions you should ask every bathroom renovator before accepting a quote.

1. Are you licensed?

All tradies require a license to operate in QLD on any work valued at over $3,300. Any work which involves drainage, plumbing, or gas fitting requires licensing regardless of the value of the job. Unless you are getting minor work done, there’s a good chance the company you hire will need to be licensed to carry out the work legally.

It’s easy enough to check licensing online for the bathroom renovators who make it on your shortlist. Just fire up licensedtrades.com.au in your browser and type in their name and license number to learn all you need to know. You will also want to review any disputes and complaints which have been lodged against the contractor through the QLD authorities

2. Amount of experience

You can gauge the experience level of a Brisbane bathroom renovator by asking how long they have been in the business. It’s also a good idea to find out what types of bathrooms they specialise in creating or renovating.

3. How experienced is the bathroom renovation team?

A bathroom renovation requires several trades to be involved like tilers, waterproofers, electricians, plumbers and maybe even a carpenter.

Many larger bathroom renovation companies may therefore subcontract the work to any “last-minute” trade, which is a risk to the client.

I therefore recommend you ask more about the sub-contractors who will be involved in your project. A good bathroom renovator should have a well established team of the best subbies to ensure a smooth project and deliver a high-quality bathroom renovation.

4. Are you a bathroom renovator or a general tradie (builder, handyman)?

You must be a builder of some sort to be a bathroom renovator, so what you’re really asking here is whether they specialise in bathrooms, or if they are an all-rounder taking on all jobs.

Of course, if they aren’t specialist bathroom renovators, you could still end up with a fantastic bathroom. Ideally, it’s preferable to have a renovator who focuses on bathrooms, but you’ll need to factor in the other aspects of your research.

5. Google your bathroom renovators

Bad news spreads fast, especially online. There’s nothing quite like a quick Google search to reveal the bad eggs doing the rounds in bathroom renovations. What you want to see are mostly positive reviews. A few negatives and fair-to-middling reviews are acceptable, because you can’t please everybody.

However, a company with nothing but positive reviews may need more research because there’s a good chance they could be faking it.  And of course, Bathroom renovation companies with a long list of negative reviews and very few positive should be avoided.
