Bathroom Remodeling: DIY vs. Hiring a Pro

Bathroom Remodeling: DIY vs. Hiring a ProAs you hunker down in your home for the colder months and distract yourself with social media, you may get inspired to remodel a bathroom. And as you brainstorm ideas and create a list of must-have items, you’ll eventually come to the age-old bathroom remodeling debate: Do it yourself or hire a pro? Both approaches have their own advantages and disadvantages, so let’s stack them up and see the difference.


For many people, the biggest plus of going the DIY route is saving more money. All you have to pay for is the materials you need, not the labor of a remodeling company. Another big advantage is that you can tackle the project little by little, so you won’t ever have to be completely without a bathroom. And for the extremely picky homeowner, you can play around with trial-and-error decisions to make sure that your vision absolutely comes to life.

Unfortunately, not many people are experts on the most important part of a bathroom remodel: the plumbing. So, if you need to replace a bathtub or install a new sink, you may be out of your league and accidentally mess up the task, which could result in expensive repairs.

Hiring a Pro

When you leave your bathroom remodel to a team of professionals, you can almost ensure that it will be done flawlessly. This peace of mind is reason enough for many homeowners to go the pro route. Most companies, nowadays, also work with you to ensure that your design is fully executed and done according to your standards. In the end, you might save more with a professional’s expertise.

With some bathroom remodeling companies, the downside is typically that the project can leave you without a bathroom for days or even weeks on end. However, this isn’t the case when you partner with Tundraland. We frequently complete services like bathtub and shower replacements in only one day, and do so professionally.
