Default tub and tile ?

Well if your looking for a new tub style R&R a tube w/plumbing Is around 600
To re-glaze the tub in place 350 w/materials or you could re-glaze it your self.. easy for 75.00
Your tile surround Is 70 SQft labor for demo and Backer board install 6.00 sqft
4.00 to install tile
1.00 for demo
1.00 for backer board install
If every thing is cut and dry this is a three day job
Pm me if you would like more info and i am sure you have some for me to better asses this project..
Good luck with this hope All turns out well
And im at @ 1100 labor.. easier it is the less it cost
11 years in flooring

was this just for installing the tub and backsplash around the tub?

Or was this for all the demo of old tile and tub plus disposal of old stuff. then installation of new flooring, tub and backsplash?

2 years ago I did a complete tear out on our bathroom down to studs and floor joists.
all the materials to get it back to a normal bathroom was $2600. it took me and 2 others 5 days to get it done.
not including the 2 days I did all the demo work myself. if you would have factored payed labor it would be around the $4k
range.

it takes time.

depending on how old your current tub is, the new tub most likely won't line up with the old drain plumbing, etc. believe me you will run into problems

Sounds like you're getting bent over for $2750. I'll bend you over for free.

I just completely gutted our bathroom over Christmas. I have nowhere near $2700 into it with tile floors. I wouldn't have even had that into it if I tiled the tub. I just did a tub surround after talking to a few friends that have tile tubs. Most that had it for a few years didn't like it.

I was out of the house for two weeks, wife and I lived in my parents basement during that time. The only fixture re-used was the toilet because it wasn't that old.

I still have trim and some minor stuff to do, as well as find one more cabinet.


I bet it easily would have been well over 3 if I had to pay the labor. Tile is easy, I have done it 3 or 4 times. Well I should say it is easy if you have level floors and straight walls. Straightening 100 year old ones sucks.

Putting in new/additional studs is far better IMO. Cardboard breaks down over time, you can see it in my house where a form of cardboard was actually used for insulation 100 years ago

Of course, with my house being as old as it is, I had parts of the bathroom that on a 5' wall were 2" out of square

It was bad enough pulling down my tub surround to find hardware cloth stapled to the wall and glazed over with mortar to "square" the wall.

Just shim's on the studs where needed.. backer board gets a coat of water proofing before tile goes on.
I have built bathtubs out of stone

No thanks.

A leopard could hide in that tub. I'd be all "LOL, gonna take a shower and rub one out while thinking about Stan", and the leopard would be like "ROWR!" and then I would get eated.

You gotta take these kinds of things into consideration when remodeling a home, or it could be your last!

This is a common mistake.

Right now i have a 4 piece tub and surround. I think it should come out easy with a saw. I have access to the plumbing not only from the basement but form the access panel on the opposing wall. I'm going to run a new line back to my box with a gfi for the pump. I need to replace the valve and i have all copper pipe. The tub drain will need to be moved 4 inches to accommodate the drain kit with the tub. Having full access from the basement i cant see how this would be hard. I have not existing tile to tear up on the floor. Its carpet right now. I want to tile around my vanity so that would not require being pulled out. I can finish the dry wall and replace the trim after the project is done.
