Bathroom Remodeling

Remodeling a bathroom requires hard work, skill and time.  Some jobs are best left to the professionals, but certain tasks, such as making a bath panel or tiling the walls, should be within the capabilities of a competent DIY enthusiast.  If you feel up to the task of completing some of your bathroom remodeling jobs yourself, it’s important to be clear about how best to go about each job.  Take your time to plan exactly what you need to do, and make sure you have the necessary tools and materials before you get started. 

Here are some guidelines on how to do various tasks involved in remodeling a bathroom.  We will be adding new articles as time allows.  You might also want to visit our “Ask The Plumber” section, which aims to answer some of the most frequently asked questions our visitors have about their bathrooms.
