Steps for Renovating a Bathroom in NYC

The cost of gut renovating a typical bathroom in NYC is between $20,000 to $50,000. A bathroom gut renovation is a stressful and time-consuming project. To make matters worse, there isn’t always a correlation between how much you pay a contractor and the quality of the renovation work being done. Due to the sheer amount of misinformation and sketchiness in the construction industry, it’s very easy to get ripped off when renovating an apartment in NYC. Fortunately, you can save a tremendous amount of time, money and possibly avert a disastrous outcome simply by learning the step-by-step process for renovating a bathroom. Having knowledge of exactly how renovation work is done and how long each phase of the project takes will allow you to make the most educated decision when it comes to hiring a contractor. If you’re buying a co-op and planning on renovating, it’s important to fully understand the cost of renovations and the co-op’s down payment, debt-to-income and post closing liquidity requirements. You can estimate how much co-op you can afford using Hauseit’s Home Affordability Calculator.
