Bathroom Remodeling Costs in Tallahassee. Kitchen and Bathroom

Each year Remodeling Magazine issues its Cost vs Value Report where it breaks down the cost for various remodeling projects including bathroom remodeling costs in Tallahassee, FL area.

The report also lists the added value the remodel added to the home. Kitchen and Bathroom remodeling remains one of the best values for remodeling but the payback is still not 100%. Mid range kitchen and bath remodels add between 70% and 82% to the value of your home. Upscale remodels add less value (closer to 50%). This just emphasizes that you should be remodeling for you and your needs, not for resale. The exception would be if your bathroom were drastically outdated or had tile or fixtures in disrepair.

We took a look at the report for the South Atlantic Regions and for  Jacksonville, FL (Tallahassee was not listed separately in the report). The results are below, you can read the full report here: http://www.remodeling.hw.net/cost-vs-value/2016/south-atlantic/

Bathroom Remodeling Costs in Tallahassee

Mid Range vs Upscale

The report breaks down bathroom remodels into 2 basic categories: Mid Range and Upscale.

A mid range remodel is for a smaller bath where the layout stays the same. An Upscale remodel involves a larger bath where layout changes are made.

In our experience the costs listed in the report are pretty accurate for the mid range remodels and a little high for the upscale ones. Of course prices can be affected by the materials the homeowner chooses and unusual circumstances a project with difficult access (up narrow stairs, parking limitations etc…).

See details below.

In our experience the report is accurate for small bathroom remodels in Tallahassee. Mid range bathroom remodels make up around 35% of our work. Even with some changes, like removing a tub to install a shower or installing a Quartz counter top the costs generally range from $12,000 – $18,000. A 5 foot x 7 foot bathroom is very common in Tallahassee, especially for hall bathrooms or guest bathrooms. Even master bathrooms in older homes are similar in size.
