Milwaukee Bathroom Remodeling Experts


How much is my bathroom remodel going to cost?
The short answer: it's entirely up to you. Bathrooms are great to remodel because you can really do a lot for very little money. Simply replacing your vanity, sink, and toilet can make a dramatic difference. Basically, the cost of the remodel will depend entirely on the extent of the remodel you want to accomplish.

Let our team of award-winning interior designers help you come up with a plan that will work for you and your budget.


What's the difference between your "contract price" and a "free" estimate?
Another great question, and this one is pretty easy to answer. An estimate is, by its very definition, simply a rough "guess" as to how much something is going to cost. In this case, it's a rough guess on how much it's going to cost you to remodel.

Our price, which you get in writing, is not a "rough" guess. In fact, we go to extraordinary lengths to make sure that our price won't change.

Here at Oak Creek Plumbing Kitchen & Bath, we pride ourselves on not guessing. Our prices are as accurate as possible. About the only time the contract price will change, is if you request a "written" change order.

Simply stated, the contract price is the price you pay.


What makes a bathroom remodel more or less expensive?
In our experience, it really comes down to how much "wetwork" is necessary. "Wetwork" is an industry term that refers to the water, plumbing, and sewer connections that are required in a bathroom. The more the wetwork needs to be changed, the more expensive the project becomes.


What other important considerations should I keep in mind?
Never underestimate the importance of good lighting and even better ventilation. Most people don't realize just how important these two items are.

When it comes to proper lighting in a bathroom, most homeowners don't realize how much light they really need. The most popular option is an overhead light coupled with wall sconces placed above the sinks. This allows for even lighting without casting harsh shadows on your face, which is particularly important for a man when shaving and for a woman applying makeup.

In regard to ventilation, you have to keep in mind just how much moisture accumulates in your bathroom. Without a means of escape, this moisture can lead to severe problems such as mold and mildew. Ventilation fans are pretty inexpensive, but it amazes us how many are improperly installed. Don't risk it – just have a competent remodeler replace your existing fans. That way you'll know that they are in good working order and that they will do the job they were intended to do.


What should I expect?
Again, every home is different. Every job is different. But there are some general guidelines as to what you can expect with your bathroom remodel. First is the planning and design phase. This is the most critical aspect of any remodeling. There is an old cliché, which we find extraordinarily appropriate when it comes to remodeling: "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail." That is why we take such extraordinary steps and as much time as is needed to come up with a plan that works for you and your budget.


Aging in Place FAQ

Just how important is aging in place?
If you or a loved one has any inclination whatsoever to remain in the home long-term, then aging in place is of vital importance. And no single item of aging in place is more important than the issue of bathing.

Data clearly indicates that one of every three senior citizens in the United States will fall annually.

As alarming as they are, these documented statistics fall short of the actual number, since many incidents are unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers.

Out of those numbers, at least half will fall again within the same year. Nearly 87 percent of all fractures in people over the age of 65 years old are caused by a fall. Accidental falls account for at least 20 percent of injury-related deaths in this age group, and the bathroom is the room that accounts for the greatest number of falls in the home.

We MUST make bathrooms safer, and do our best to prevent injuries from ever happening.

Once an injury occurs, it may be too late. Knowledge of bathing technologies, like walk-in tubs, can empower you to take control of your intention to live independently for as long as possible.

A senior cannot live independently until they have resolved bathing issues for the long-term.


What can I do?
The fastest and easiest thing you can do is to call us and schedule an appointment with our Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS). They can perform a home inspection and will then educate you on solutions.


Who should I talk to?
If you are considering aging in place, there are basically three people you MUST talk to. You need a CAPS professional, an interior designer, and a trusted contractor you can make the recommended changes. Thankfully, you can find all three right here at Oak Creek Plumbing Kitchen & Bath.
