Bathroom Remodeling

Custom Bathroom Remodeling

Remodeling a bathroom is a great way to maximize your return on investment. A typical bathroom remodel will give you an 80-90% return on your investment. If you live in a home with only one bathroom, you might consider adding an additional full or half bath somewhere in your home. This will dramatically increase the resale value of your home.

Watch the video below to hear what a recent client of A. Leigh Construction has to say about bathroom remodel.

Garden tubs are not as popular today as they once were.  In the above video, the homeowners had the tub removed and added a huge shower.  Removing an oversized tub will allow you to create spa-like experience with the existing space. A walk in shower complete with bench seating, rainfall shower heads and pebble tile give you that pampered feeling.

Waterproofing your new shower or tub surround is very important to avoid future water damage.  There are a variety of products on the market.  We use Schluter Systems to be sure your shower is 100% waterproof.  Their waterproof KERDI-BOARD eliminates the need to use RedGard.  Although, in a situation where cement backer board is used either KERDI or RedGard waterproofing membrane would be used to seal the water resistant cement board making it waterproof.  

If you’ve decided to plan a bathroom remodeling project, start with an analysis of your existing bathroom:

  • What is the condition of the tub and tile?  If your tub is basically sound, consider reglazing it. However, many homeowners are moving up to free standing tubs.  Shower wall tile may also be reglazed for an affordable, updated look. 
  • Do you have enough storage? There may be a place to add a small linen closet or consider wall cabinets in addition to your sink vanity.
  • Don’t have enough light?  Consider adding recessed lights in addition to task lighting. 
  • If a wooden window is suffering the effects of humidity, it may be best to replace it and older metal windows with new vinyl windows.
  • Many older bathrooms don’t have adequate ventilation. You may want to add a fan to avoid moisture build-up which can deteriorate materials and promote the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Are electrical outlets a problem? Face it, the number of electrical appliances we use in our daily rituals has multiplied since the time many houses were built. That means that you probably want more outlets. New and replacement ones should be protected ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets that are made to shut off automatically when they sense water.
  • Do you have a budget in mind?  This may be the most difficult question for you to answer.  This Cost vs Value report, updated each year, is a great place to start.

Here's what they say

I contacted Aaron to completely renovate the 8x5 bathroom in my condo inside an 1850s Church Hill building. When I purchased the condo, the previous owner claimed it had been updated, but I was met with a rotting vanity, dark textured walls, and a fiberglass insert and tiles from the 1980s. I contacted multiple other companies who either didn't respond or didn't think my job was big enough for them, but Aaron responded quickly to give me a quote and do a space visit. With only one bathroom in my place, I needed the work completed quickly and Aaron was able to complete the entire renovation in only a week! I'm so happy with my bathroom remodel from a dark and dingy space to a bright and clean space. I would recommend Aaron to anyone looking to complete a quick and drastic remodel in the Richmond area.

Aaron and his crew did a truly outstanding job on the many aspects of a recent broad renovation of our 11 year old home. His broad expertise comes from experience with every aspect of home building, but he stands apart because he truly loves what he does. He helped us design solutions that matched our budget and then implemented them efficiently. Every day his courteous workers left the site immaculate. The job included replacing a kitchen marble backsplash, major shower tile and glass rebuild after a nasty leak, designing and building an improved support and drainage system for our large raised deck, restoration of our screened porch, house trim, paint, gutter, window, and masonry repairs. And more! The key to Aaron’s success is that he is honest, enthusiastic and creative. It was a pleasure to work with him and we look forward to using his services in the future.
