Question by Boss Lady: How much should it cost to box in a basement bathroom?
All the pluming has been done. But walls and a door needs to be put up. The area is 10 x 6.
Answer by HelpingMAN
People often hire a remodeling comany to do something like this, since it usually requires a lot of trades (electrical, interior walls, carpentry–as to door hanging,etc.), and a remodeling contractor usually handles all of such trades, making it–in theory–cheaper to pay one contractor as opposed to paying each trade contractor. So, Boss Lady, there are plenty of local remodeling contractors seeking to give free estimates with no obligation, and taking advantage of this is the consumer-smart way to go about finding an accurate answer to your question. It’s important that you get a local estimate and not rely on guesses found here on Yah, as a lot of factors really bear on the cost of such a project, including the following: The cost of material and labor greatly varies by location.
A local remodeling contractor can easily assist you in this project of yours. If you negotiate well with the contractor and he buys the building materials for you, you may try to have him pass the discounted cost of the materials to you, as usually contractors get discounts (called “contractor’s discounts” or “contractor’s price”) when buying from home improvement stores because of the many purchases they make as required by their jobs.
As I said, Free estimates from local remodeling contractors are the key to your success in this home improvement project of yours. Here’s a great link to a handyman site that offers free very resourceful information to assist you in determining the cost of your project, and, ultimately, selecting a local remodeling contractor in an effort to get the best deal for you:
