New Bathroom Renovation Costs in ACT

Hi All,

I have recently bought a house in Canberra. I wanted to get my bathroom renovated. it is a '3x2.5m' size bathroom. Shower glass partition and tub looks good.

Renovation work including,
- tiles on floor and wall
- toilet set
- vanity set

How much can I expect the cost be? Should I go with the same company for everything or can I get the tasks done individually (Tiling by one and other by someone else, or is it a mistake?). Couple of renovating companies said, they would charge $20k labor charge only. :O

Please help. :)

    How old is the house? Might want to factor in asbestos

        I'd be prepared for asbestos, esp in CBR.

    You might need to engage each of the trade individually. Tilers, waterproofers, plumber if you need plumbing work and a tradie to do the vanity?

      This is the cheapest way to do a bathroom or kitchen renovation - manage each trade individually and pay them separately. But you need to know what you're doing and be organised with the order of things to be done, and know what needs to be done. You can also save money doing things that you're capable of, things like strip out, mounting the vanity unit, basic plumbing to connect vanity and waste, replace tap fittings, install towel rails etc. Otherwise pay an all in one mob who do 'bathroom renovations' and pay a premium for someone to manage everything. They will strip out, remove old shower screen, bath, tiles, fittings etc. Then screed the floor for a fall if you want a hobless shower, waterproof, rough in electrical, tile, install shower screen, install bath etc

        One of the tradies can project manage too. I have a plumber relative who does this and project manages the other trades. Works out way cheaper than engaging a bathroom company.

    I suggest buying your own tiles, vanity, toilet and fixtures. Get quotes from a tiler who generally can waterproof and screed, they generally use their own plumber and carpenter (or do their own carpentry eg if you want a niche or cabinet mounted or the old screed needs to come up)
