How Much Does It Cost To Renovate A Bathroom NZ – 2024 (updated)

This article has been updated with additional content and project portfolios to reflect the bathroom renovation cost trends in 2024. 

A Bathroom renovation might seem simple and straight forward. This however is far from the truth. The fact is that a bathroom renovation is the most complex of all renovations due to the number of trades involved in a relatively small space.

Average bathroom renovation cost in Auckland 2024 can only be determined when all the various factors are considered. Trades involved in a bathroom renovation include a designer, demolisher, plumber, electrician, tiler, water proofer, installer, painter, grouter, and plasterer. Imagine managing the above trades within a small space. You can easily understand why organisation and planning is key to a bathroom renovation. Bathroom renovations typically should take about 3-4 weeks to complete if you have a project manager on site managing the trades for you.

Managing the trades on your own comes at a risk of either blowing your budget as you are dealing with so many different companies or extending the timeline of your project. Our first advice would be to get a company that provides project manager as part of their service.

But more on project management later, lets talk about the costs related to bathroom renovations.

Before you renovate your bathroom ask yourself the reason for your renovation and plan from there. Once you have determined the reason for your renovation then we can work out a plan and costs related to them.

1.How Much Does It Cost to Renovate a Bathroom in Auckland?

Whether you have lived in the same house for several years or just purchased an older home you may be facing the need to renovate that old bathroom. As most Aucklanders know, renovating a bathroom can be one of the most expensive renovations that can be undertaken. Hence it is only natural that one of the first questions people have when considering renovating their bathroom is What is the average cost of a new bathroom renovation?

However, that is also one of the most difficult questions to answer since renovating a bathroom means different things to different people.

For example, a major bathroom renovation can involve changing the layout of bathroom, purchasing new bathroom appliances, purchasing fixtures, changing flooring, new paint, changing plumbing and electrical work may mean an average cost between $18,000 and $22,000 for a mid-range bathroom (this seems to be the most popular choice)

On the other hand if you are only planning on a new coat of paint and making few other small changes then the average cost of a new bathroom renovation could only run a couple of thousand of dollars.

However, since most bathroom renovations falls somewhere in between the two extremes the average cost of a new bathroom renovation will fall somewhere between these two extremes.

How to Figure Out Your Average Cost of a New Bathroom Renovation

Understanding the average cost of a new bathroom renovation can be tricky since it varies significantly depending on the scope of the project and specific circumstances. However, at Superior Renovations, we have some valuable tips to help you estimate the cost of your bathroom renovation effectively.

First, determine the purpose of your bathroom renovation. Are you looking to create more space, or do you want to modernize your bathroom to match the rest of your home’s décor? Clarifying your primary goal will help you define the necessary steps and elements required to achieve it. For instance, if your aim is to increase space, you might need to focus on reconfiguring the layout, while modernizing might involve updating fixtures and finishes.

Once you have a clear purpose, make a comprehensive list of everything that needs to be remodeled. This list should include fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and bathtubs; lighting options; wall and ceiling paint; tiles for floors and walls; cabinetry; and flooring materials. Don’t forget to consider smaller details like mirrors, towel racks, and storage solutions, as these can also impact the overall cost.

Next, research the costs of these items. Visit home improvement stores, check online marketplaces, and compare prices to get an idea of what you will need to spend on materials. Websites like Bunnings, Mitre 10, and Trade Me can provide a range of options and price points. Additionally, look for sales or clearance items to save on high-quality materials.

Another crucial aspect to consider is the cost of hiring professionals for the renovation. Depending on your project’s complexity, you might need to hire tradespeople such as plumbers, electricians, tilers, and painters. To get a realistic estimate, seek quotes from multiple contractors and check reviews or references to ensure they provide quality work. Websites like Builderscrack and NoCowboys can help you find reputable tradespeople in your area.

To further refine your cost estimate, consider potential additional expenses. These might include the cost of permits if structural changes are required, disposal fees for old materials, and unexpected repairs that might arise during the renovation process. Adding a contingency fund of around 10-15% of your total budget can help cover these unforeseen costs.

Lastly, evaluate whether you can handle any part of the renovation yourself to save on labor costs. Simple tasks like demolition, painting, or installing accessories can be managed by DIY enthusiasts, reducing the amount you need to spend on professional services.

 

Keep in mind that you can do the bigger projects of your bathroom renovation first and then add in some of the smaller details to help you spread out the cost of that renovation job.

 

2. 7 Factors that contribute to the Cost of a bathroom Renovation in NZ.

  1. Size of the bathroom: The size of the bathroom is a key factor that affects the cost of a renovation. Larger bathrooms require more materials and labour, which can drive up the cost. A standard-sized bathroom in NZ is usually around 8-12 square metres. If your bathroom is larger than this, you can expect to pay more for the renovation. However, if your bathroom is smaller, it may be more affordable to renovate.
  2. Quality of materials: The quality of materials used for the renovation can also have a significant impact on the overall cost. Higher-quality materials such as natural stone, premium tiles, and fixtures made of premium materials like brass and stainless steel will be more expensive. Lower-quality materials like vinyl, laminate, or ceramic tiles will be more affordable. However, it’s important to note that using lower-quality materials may not last as long and may require more maintenance and repair over time.
  3. Complexity of the design: The complexity of the design of the bathroom is another factor that can affect the cost of the renovation. If you have a unique design in mind or want to incorporate custom features, this will likely require more labour and materials, which can increase the cost of the project. For example, adding a new shower or bath, changing the layout of the bathroom, or installing custom cabinetry can all increase the complexity of the design and add to the cost.
  4. Plumbing and electrical work: If your bathroom renovation involves changing the plumbing or electrical systems, this can add to the cost of the project. This is because licensed professionals will need to be hired to ensure that the work is done safely and up to code. Plumbing work may include installing new pipes or moving existing ones, while electrical work may include installing new lighting or adding outlets.
  5. Labour costs: Labour costs are a significant component of the cost of a bathroom renovation. The cost of labour can vary depending on the level of experience and expertise of the contractors or tradespeople involved in the project. It’s important to choose a reputable and experienced renovation company to ensure that the work is done to a high standard and within budget.
  6. Permits and fees: Depending on the scope of the renovation, permits and fees may be required from the local council. These costs should be factored into the overall renovation budget. The cost of permits and fees can vary depending on the location of the property and the scope of the renovation.
  7. Location: The location of the property can also impact the cost of the renovation. Renovations in Auckland may be more expensive than other parts of New Zealand due to higher labour and material costs. Additionally, if the bathroom is in an apartment or multi-level building, there may be additional costs associated with access to the site, such as elevator or stair fees.

In summary, the cost to renovate a bathroom in NZ can vary based on several factors, including the size of the bathroom, quality of materials used, complexity of the design, plumbing and electrical work involved, labour costs, permits and fees, and location. By considering these factors and working with a reputable and experienced renovation company, you can ensure that your bathroom renovation is completed to a high standard and within budget.

3.Why do you need to renovate your bathroom?

Having a plan will ensure that you are spending your money at the right places.

Different families have different needs to renovate a bathroom. The fittings they choose and the choice between a bathtub or shower or both will be determined by your reason to renovate.

 

1.      A young family

A young family has very different needs compared to a mature family with older kids. If you have a toddler or a new baby on the way and there is no bathtub in your bathroom then it would be a wise choice to include a bathtub for your renovation.

Bathroom renovation for a young family

Renovating a bathroom in NZ for families with young children requires careful consideration of several important factors to create a space that is both safe and functional. Here are some specific features that can make a bathroom more suitable for families with young children:

  • Durable and easy-to-clean surfaces: Choosing durable and easy-to-clean surfaces for walls, floors, and fixtures is essential when renovating a bathroom. For example, textured tiles or non-slip mats are a good choice for flooring to prevent slips and falls, and tiles are easy to clean and maintain.
  • Adequate storage: Families with young children require a lot of storage space for toiletries, bath toys, and other items. Incorporating storage solutions like built-in shelving, cabinets, or baskets will keep the bathroom organized and clutter-free.
  • Child-friendly fixtures: Installing child-friendly fixtures can make a big difference in the safety and convenience of the bathroom for young children. Soft-close toilet seats can prevent accidental slamming, while a handheld showerhead can make it easier to rinse children off.
  • Slip-resistant flooring: Bathroom floors can become slippery when wet, which can be especially dangerous for young children. Choose slip-resistant flooring options like textured tiles or non-slip mats to help prevent slips and falls.
  • Safety features: Safety features like grab bars or non-slip mats in the tub or shower can provide additional support for children who are learning to bathe independently. Additionally, child locks on cabinets or drawers can keep hazardous items like cleaning supplies out of reach.

When planning a bathroom renovation for a family with young children, it’s important to work with an experienced renovation company in NZ to ensure that the renovation meets the family’s needs and is done to a high standard. With the right design and features, a renovated bathroom can be a safe and functional space for the entire family to enjoy.

Examples of bathroom renovations for families with Young children – How much does this type of a bathroom renovation Cost?

Bathroom renovation in Westmere 

This rustic bathroom renovation in Westmere features a large custom built wet area, double sink custom vanity and matte anti-slip tiles. This large wet area is perfect for families with young children because of the ample space available to bathe kids.

The cost to renovate the bathroom below would be on a slightly higher side because of the choice of fittings. The tiles used in the feature wall of the wet area from Tile Depot are of the size 6.5 x 20 which is a fairly small size. This means that it is a lot more labour intensive to install as opposed to tiles in a larger format as there is less grouting to do. These Artisan Moss green tiles come in various shades of green with a glossy texture are also from Tile Depot’s more premium range in tiles.

The custom built vanity and benchtop also contributes to higher cost of the bathroom.

3.      Adding Value for Re-sale

We advise clients to not over capitalise if you are looking at adding value before a sale or renting your home. Renters and buyers alike prefer homes where they do not have to renovate. They want homes that are updated with little or no need of repairs.

Generally speaking, bathroom renovations add $1.50 for every $1 spent. People looking at selling their home should look at using simple yet updated products and fixtures. There is no need to buy a designer sink costing you $3000 if you are selling as that will not yield any return on investment.

4.Tips for Reducing the Average Cost of A New Bathroom Renovation

You also need to keep in mind that the average cost of A new bathroom renovation is just an estimate.  However, there are some ways to reduces the costs of your bathroom renovation including:

  • Your Bathroom Cabinets- Instead of replacing those bathroom cabinets consider restraining them or painting them in a new modern color. You can also refinish your bathtub and sink and give it a new bright look.
  • Go for New Faucets and Handles Instead of All New Bathroom Appliances- Many times simply changing your sink and bath tub handles and faucets is enough to give your bathroom a more modern look.
  • Go Lighter- You don’t have to actually enlarge your bathroom to make it look spacious. In fact painting your bathroom in a lighter yellow or beige can make it look spacious without breaking down a wall.

6.How much does it cost to renovate a bathroom – NZ average

Pricing guide for 2024 (updated)

Once you know your exact reason to renovate then you can start planning your budget for your renovation. If you are carrying out your renovation through a renovation company then your renovation would include demolition, supplying of products and fixtures, installation, water proofing, flooring, painting and most importantly project management.

 

Type of Bathroom Renovation Average Bathroom Renovation Cost
Standard Bathroom Minor Alterations (Not Demolishing Everything)

If you’d like to keep the cost of your bathroom renovation on the low side or at least lower than the average cost, you have options. Instead of completely rearranging the bathroom, it’s less expensive to leave the sink, bathtub, shower and toilet where they are. Simply swap the older models for newer, updated versions.

$8,000 – $13,000 (this would be applicable as a DIY job or if you just get a plumber to replace some fixtures. This is not applicable when using a renovation company). 
Mid Range Bathroom Renovation

Renovating a bathroom has several benefits for the homeowner, aside from making the room look better and improving its function. Adding another sink to a master bathroom, improving the lighting and making the shower function better are a few examples of bathroom updates that pay off in the long run. This type of bathroom renovation is done usually with a mix of mid-range fixtures, and few premium fixtures.

$26,000 – $32,000 (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management) 
Custom Bathroom Renovation (high-end)

If you have a bit more to spend, you can upgrade your renovation in a few ways. One option is to get higher-quality, custom countertops, such as quartz or custom-cut granite. Also, you may want to invest in higher-quality fixtures, such as faucets made of bronze or copper and solid wood, glazed cabinets.

$34,000 – $40,000 + (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management)

9. Small Bathroom Renovation Cost (NZ)

Renovating a bathroom is a significant undertaking for any homeowner, often involving a complex blend of trades and considerations. In New Zealand, where space is sometimes at a premium, the challenges of renovating smaller bathrooms can be particularly pronounced. Contrary to popular belief, however, the size of the bathroom doesn’t necessarily correlate directly with the renovation cost. Let’s delve into the intricacies of small bathroom renovations in New Zealand and explore why the size might not be the primary determinant of expenses.

One common misconception among homeowners is that the size of their bathroom will significantly impact the renovation cost. However, the reality is that while larger bathrooms may require more materials such as tiles and waterproofing membranes, the fundamental aspects of the renovation process remain consistent regardless of size. The need for plumbing, demolition, electrical work, painting, installation, and other specialized trades persists whether you’re renovating a compact powder room or a spacious ensuite.

Bathroom renovations involve a multitude of trades, each contributing their expertise to different facets of the project. From plumbing to tiling, electrical work to painting, and everything in between, the coordination of these specialized trades is essential for a successful renovation. In smaller bathrooms, the same array of trades is required, albeit within a more confined space. This means that the costs associated with engaging these professionals remain relatively consistent, regardless of the bathroom’s size.

While the renovation process itself may not vary significantly based on size, the choice and placement of fixtures and fittings can influence the overall cost. In smaller bathrooms, there is less space available for larger showers, vanities, or freestanding baths. Consequently, homeowners may opt for more compact or space-saving alternatives, which could potentially reduce the cost of these products compared to their larger counterparts. However, it’s essential to balance cost considerations with functionality and aesthetic preferences to ensure the final result meets your needs and desires.

It’s crucial to distinguish between a full bathroom renovation and minor upgrades or maintenance. While replacing a few components or addressing specific issues may incur lower costs, a comprehensive renovation involves overhauling the entire space. This includes addressing structural issues, updating plumbing and electrical systems, replacing fixtures, and often reconfiguring the layout to optimize space utilization and functionality. As such, the costs associated with a full renovation are more substantial but offer the opportunity for a transformative and long-lasting upgrade to your home.

The cost of renovating a small bathroom in New Zealand is not solely determined by its size. While smaller bathrooms may require less material for certain aspects such as tiling, the overall cost is influenced by factors such as the complexity of the renovation, the involvement of specialized trades, and the selection of fixtures and fittings. By understanding these nuances and carefully planning your renovation project, you can achieve a stylish and functional bathroom that enhances your home’s value and your quality of life.

 

10. How Much To Tile A Bathroom (NZ)

If you’re looking to tile your bathroom in New Zealand, you’re probably wondering about the cost. Tiling can really transform the look of your bathroom, but it’s important to know what you’re getting into financially. Let’s break it down.

Cost to Tile a Bathroom: Per Square Metre Breakdown

The cost to tile a bathroom can vary depending on the size of the tiles you choose and the amount of tiling and grout work required. Here’s a handy table to give you an idea:

Tile Size Cost per Square Metre Comments
Small (10×10 cm) $60 – $100 More grout work, higher labour cost
Medium (30×30 cm) $50 – $90 Standard choice, balanced cost
Large (60×60 cm) $70 – $120 Less grout work, but can be trickier to install

Factors Affecting the Cost to Tile a Bathroom

  1. Size of the Tiles: Smaller tiles generally mean more grout lines and more work for the installer, which can increase the cost.
  2. Amount of Tiling: Full wall and floor tiling will cost more than just tiling the shower area.
  3. Pattern and Complexity: Intricate patterns and layouts can also bump up the price because they take longer to install.

Added Costs for Waterproofing

Waterproofing is a crucial step when tiling a bathroom, especially in areas that get a lot of moisture, like the shower. Skipping this can lead to serious issues down the line, such as mold and water damage.

Waterproofing Costs

Here’s what you can expect to pay for waterproofing your bathroom in New Zealand:

Area Cost Range Comments
Shower area $300 – $500 Essential for preventing leaks and water damage
Entire bathroom (walls and floors) $600 – $1,200 Recommended for complete protection

Total Cost Estimate

So, how much will it all add up to? Let’s say you have a medium-sized bathroom of 10 square metres. If you choose medium-sized tiles and decide to waterproof the entire bathroom, here’s a rough estimate:

  • Tiling: 10 sqm x $70 (average cost for medium tiles) = $700
  • Waterproofing: Around $1,000 for the whole bathroom

Total estimated cost: $1,700

Remember, these are just ballpark figures. The actual cost to tile a bathroom in New Zealand can vary based on the specific materials you choose and the complexity of the job. Always get a few quotes from local tilers to get a precise estimate.

 

11. Can You Renovate Your Bathroom Cheaply?

First up, if you’re into DIY, you’re already saving big. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Plan and Budget: Begin with a solid plan. Identify what you want to change – maybe it’s the tiles, fixtures, or a new vanity. Use trusted budgeting tools from Consumer NZ to keep your costs in check.
  2. Keep the Plumbing As-Is: This is essential. Moving plumbing is a major cost driver. Stick to the existing positions of your sink, toilet, and shower.
  3. Paint and Refresh: A fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Opt for moisture-resistant paint recommended by Resene, a well-known New Zealand paint company. You can also repaint tiles with special tile paint for a fresh look without replacing them.
  4. Update Fixtures: Replace old taps, showerheads, and handles. This simple upgrade can make a huge difference and is generally easy to do on your own.
  5. Re-Grout and Seal: Refresh your tiles by re-grouting and sealing. It’s a bit of elbow grease, but it yields a clean, new appearance.

Sourcing Materials and Fittings

Here’s where to find your materials and fittings:

  • Online Marketplaces: Websites like Trade Me and Facebook Marketplace are excellent for finding second-hand or discounted bathroom fittings and fixtures.
  • DIY Stores: Bunnings and Mitre 10 often have sales or clearance items that are perfect for a budget-friendly renovation.
  • Salvage Yards: Don’t overlook architectural salvage yards, such as those listed on Builderscrack. They offer unique and affordable pieces.

Hiring Individual Trades

If DIY isn’t your thing, or for tasks requiring a professional touch, hiring individual tradespeople can be more cost-effective than a full-service contractor. Here’s how to manage it:

  1. Find Tradespeople: Use local community groups on Facebook, or websites like Builderscrack or NoCowboys to find reputable plumbers, electricians, and tilers. Always get multiple quotes to ensure fair pricing.
  2. Schedule and Manage: Act as your own project manager. Coordinate the tradespeople yourself to ensure timely and orderly work.
  3. Do Some Prep Work: Handle simple tasks yourself, like demolition or surface prep, to save on labor costs.

Cost-Saving Tips

  • Reuse and Upcycle: If your existing vanity or fixtures are still in decent shape, consider painting or refinishing them instead of buying new ones.
  • Affordable Alternatives: Look for laminate or composite countertops that mimic the appearance of pricier materials without the high cost.
  • Simple Updates: Sometimes, just updating the mirror or adding new accessories can dramatically improve your bathroom’s look.

Example Scenario

Imagine you want to refresh your bathroom. You decide to keep the layout the same to avoid plumbing costs. You find a nearly-new vanity on Trade Me for half the price of a new one. You paint the walls yourself with moisture-resistant paint from Resene. You hire a local tiler you found on Builderscrack to re-tile the shower area, but you remove the old tiles yourself to reduce labor costs. Finally, you replace the old taps and showerhead with new ones you found on sale at Mitre 10.

By blending DIY efforts with strategic hiring and sourcing materials wisely from trusted sources, you’ve managed a cheap bathroom renovation that looks great and didn’t cost a fortune.

    Bathroom Renovation Cost Calculator Tool (NZ)

    Bathroom renovations are an important part of any household makeover and there are a lot of things to consider, vinyl vs tiles, new cabinetry and more. Bathroom renovations have great potential to increase the value of your home for resale, or make it more functional for your family.


    Click here to be taken straight to the bathroom renovation cost calculator


    Here are some factors that can impact the cost of renovating a bathroom:

    1. Size of the bathroom: The larger the bathroom, the more materials and labor will be required, which can drive up the cost of the renovation.
    2. Type of renovation: A complete bathroom remodel, which involves moving fixtures and updating plumbing and electrical systems, will typically cost more than a simple cosmetic update.
    3. Materials used: The cost of materials, such as tiles, fixtures, and cabinets, can vary widely depending on the quality and style selected.
    4. Labor costs: Labor costs can vary depending on the scope of the renovation, the experience and expertise of the contractor, and the location of the project.
    5. Consent fees: Depending on where you live, you may need to obtain permits for certain types of bathroom renovations. These fees can add to the overall cost of the project.
    6. Plumbing and electrical work: If your bathroom renovation involves moving fixtures or updating plumbing and electrical systems, these costs can add up quickly.
    7. Accessibility needs: If you require an accessible bathroom with features like grab bars, a walk-in shower, or a raised toilet, these modifications can add to the overall cost of the renovation.
    8. Design choices: Certain design choices, such as high-end finishes or custom-built cabinetry, can also impact the cost of the renovation.

    By considering these factors and planning carefully, you can create a realistic budget for your bathroom renovation and avoid unexpected costs along the way.  When renovating a bathroom, there are certain factors that can be difficult to anticipate and can impact the overall cost of the project. Here are a few things to consider:

    1. Hidden damage: Once you start tearing apart walls and floors, you may uncover hidden damage, such as water damage or mold. This can require additional work and materials to fix, which can increase the cost of the renovation.
    2. Unforeseen complications: Sometimes, unexpected complications can arise during the renovation process, such as unexpected plumbing or electrical issues. These complications can require additional work and materials to address, which can drive up the cost of the project.
    3. Delays: Renovations can be impacted by unforeseen delays, such as backordered materials or unexpected construction challenges. These delays can extend the timeline of the project and add to the overall cost.
    4. Changes in design: If you make changes to the design or scope of the project midway through the renovation, this can add to the overall cost of the project.
    5. Permit or inspection fees: As mentioned previously, building permits may be required for certain types of bathroom renovations, and inspection fees may be charged to ensure that the work meets building standards. These fees can add to the overall cost of the project.

    To factor these variables into your costings, it is important to set aside a contingency fund in your budget. This can help cover unexpected costs and ensure that you are prepared for any unforeseen challenges that may arise during the renovation process. Additionally, it is important to work with a reputable contractor who can help identify potential challenges and develop a realistic budget and timeline for the project.

    How much does it cost to renovate a bathroom – NZ average

    Pricing guide

    Once you know your exact reason to renovate then you can start planning your budget for your renovation. If you are carrying out your renovation through a renovation company then your renovation would include demolition, supplying of products and fixtures, installation, water proofing, flooring, painting and most importantly project management.

     

    Type of Bathroom Renovation Average Bathroom Renovation Cost
    Standard Bathroom Minor Alterations (Not Demolishing Everything)

    If you’d like to keep the cost of your bathroom renovation on the low side or at least lower than the average cost, you have options. Instead of completely rearranging the bathroom, it’s less expensive to leave the sink, bathtub, shower and toilet where they are. Simply swap the older models for newer, updated versions.

    $8,000 – $13,000 (this would be applicable as a DIY job or if you just get a plumber to replace some fixtures. This is not applicable when using a renovation company). 
    Mid Range Bathroom Renovation

    Renovating a bathroom has several benefits for the homeowner, aside from making the room look better and improving its function. Adding another sink to a master bathroom, improving the lighting and making the shower function better are a few examples of bathroom updates that pay off in the long run. This type of bathroom renovation is done usually with a mix of mid-range fixtures, and few premium fixtures.

    $26,000 – $32,000 (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management) 
    Custom Bathroom Renovation (high-end)

    If you have a bit more to spend, you can upgrade your renovation in a few ways. One option is to get higher-quality, custom countertops, such as quartz or custom-cut granite. Also, you may want to invest in higher-quality fixtures, such as faucets made of bronze or copper and solid wood, glazed cabinets.

    $34,000 – $40,000 + (with a renovation company to include materials, all labour and, fixtures and project management)

      在新西兰装修一个浴室需要多少钱 – 2022年

      10月05日,2022

      这篇文章已经更新了更多的内容和项目,以反映2022年的浴室装修费用趋势。

      浴室装修可能看起来是一项很简单直接的工作, 其实并非如此。事实上, 浴室装修往往是所有装修中最复杂的,因为它涉及到许多工种在一个相对狭小的空间里施工。

      当考虑了所有的因素之后,才能确定奥克兰2022年的平均浴室装修费用是多少。卫生间装修涉及的工种包括设计师、拆除工、水管工、电工、瓦工、防水工、安装工、油漆工、注浆工和抹灰工。试想一下,当需要在一个如此狭小的空间内管理上述行业,您就很容易理解为什么浴室装修的关键是组织和计划.如果您有一位项目经理在现场为您管理这些工种的话,那么装修浴室通常需要花费2-3周的时间就可以完成。

      如果您自己管理这些行业,就可能会因为要和许多不同的公司打交道而导致预算超支,或者延长项目的时间。所以我们的第一个建议是找一家提供项目经理作为其服务的一部分的公司。

      但是关于项目管理问题稍后再讨论,我们先聊一下浴室翻新所涉及到的费用。

      在你装修浴室之前,先问问自己装修的原因,然后再制定计划。一旦你确定了装修的原因,我们就可以制定计划和相关的费用了

       

      在这篇文章中,我们将讨论以下内容:

      1.在奥克兰,浴室装修的平均费用是多少?

      2.为什么装修的原因会决定你的浴室装修的预算

      3.降低新浴室装修成本的技巧

      4.安装瓷砖淋浴的费用

      5.安装一个新马桶的费用

      6.基本浴室装修、中档浴室装修和豪华浴室装修的平均费用

      7.以信息图的形式分享本文的压缩版本

      8.我们在奥克兰翻新过的浴室的专题案例研究

      1. 在奥克兰翻新一个浴室需要多少钱?

      无论你是在同一所房子里住了好几年,还是刚买了一栋老房子,你都可能面临需要翻新旧浴室的问题。大多数奥克兰人都知道,翻新浴室可能是装修中最昂贵的装修之一。因此,人们在考虑翻新浴室时,首先要问的自然是,新浴室的平均翻新费用是多少?

       

      然而,这也是最难回答的问题之一,因为装修浴室对不同的人意味着不同的事情。

      例如,一个大型浴室装修可能涉及浴室的布局的改变、购买新的浴室设备、购买固定装置,
      改变地板、新油漆、改变水管和电气工程,这可能意味着中档浴室的平均费用21,000纽币    ~24,000纽币之间(这可能是最受欢迎的选择)

       

      查看更多中档浴室的例子

      Hillsborough的租房装修

      Greenlane的浴室装修

       

      另一方面,如果您只打算刷一层新的油漆,并做一些其他的小改动,那么新浴室装修的平均  费用可能只有几千纽币。

      不过,由于大多数浴室装修都介于这两个区间值,因此新浴室装修的平均费用将介于这两个区间值之间。

       

       

             如何计算出新浴室装修的平均费用

      虽然新浴室装修的平均费用会因工作和情况的不同而变化,但您可能想知道您的浴室装   修要花多少钱。在Superior Renovations我们有一些提示,可以帮助您确定浴室装修的费用。

      • 首先要确定您装修浴室的目的。您需要更大的空间吗? 您的浴室是否需要进行现代化改造,以便与您家其他地方的装饰风格保持一致? 一旦您确定了目的,您就会对实现目标所需的东西有更清晰的认识。
      • 将您需要改造的所有东西列一个清单,如灯具、照明、油漆、瓷砖、橱柜、地板等。
      • 把雇人做装修的费用算进去。

      请记住,您可以先做浴室装修的大项目,然后再加入一些小细节来帮助您分摊该装修工作  的费用。

       

      2. 为什么你需要重新翻新你的浴室?

      拥有一个计划可以确保你的钱正花在正确的地方.

      不同的家庭对浴室翻新的需求也不同. 人们对配件的选择,以及是选择浴缸还是淋浴间或是两个都选,都由他们的装修理由来决定。

      1. 一个年轻的家庭

      一个年轻的家庭和一个有着大孩子的家庭相比,装修的需求是非常不同的。如果你有一个 蹒跚学步的孩子或一个即将出生的新生儿,而你的浴室里没有浴缸,那么在装修中加入一个浴缸将是一个明智的选择。

      年轻家庭的浴室装修

       

      1. 成长中的家庭/增加便利

      家庭的成长可能意味着你需要更多的空间让成年人更舒适地在房子里生活。这也可能意味  着需要再建一个独立的厕所,或者将一个套房分成一个厕所和一个浴室。如果你的家里有空间,那么你可以增加一个完整的浴室来增加便利。

      1. 增加再出售的价值

      如果你想在出售或出租房屋前增加价值,我们建议客户不要过度投资。租房者和买家都喜欢不用装修的房子。他们想要的是几乎不需要维修的最新房屋。

      一般来说,卫生间的装修每花1纽币就能增加1.5纽币的价值。正在打算出售房屋的人应该考虑使用既简单又最新的产品和装置。如果你要出售,没有必要买一个花费3000纽币的设计师水槽,因为这不会产生任何投资回报。

      1. 提高生活质量,增加一个豪华浴室

      如果你在装修时想增加舒适度和一点豪华感,那么过度投资也不失为一个好主意。如果你的空间很小,你可以选择湿润室风格的浴室,制造一个像温泉一样的感觉,甚至可以在3000纽币的水槽上大肆挥霍。你的预算决定了装修效果,其可能性是无穷无尽的。

      3.降低新浴室装修平均成本的技巧

      你还需要记住,新浴室装修的平均费用只是一个估算的数字。 但是,有一些方法可以降低浴室装修的成本,包括:

      • 浴室橱柜–与其更换浴室橱柜,不如考虑对其进行修复,或将其粉刷成新的现代颜色。您还可以对浴缸和水槽进行修复,使其焕然一新。
      • 使用新的水龙头和把手,而不是所有新的浴室装置–很多时候,仅仅改变水槽和浴缸的把手和水龙头,就足以让您的浴室看起来更加现代。
      • 轻装上阵—实际上,您不必为了让浴室看起来更宽敞而扩大其面积。其实,将您的浴室刷成浅黄色或米色,也可以使它看起来很宽敞,而不是通过拆掉一堵墙。

      无论您是想进行完整的浴室翻新,还是只想让您的浴室焕然一新,请在9点至5点之间致电0800-199-888,我们将很乐意为您提供帮助。

      Superior Renovations

      更换淋浴器的平均费用

      更换淋浴器的平均费用在1150到8850纽币之间,这取决于你想要的尺寸和功能。安装一个新的亚克力淋浴箱可能只需支付1150纽币–虽然瓷砖淋浴器是一个更豪华的选择,但它们更难清洁,所以那些时间紧的人可能更愿意选择易于清洁的亚克力淋浴器。如果你需要添加水管或者你想使用昂贵的材料,总价会更高,尤其如果你想重新做一整个的瓷砖翻新。

       

      项目 人工和材料花费
      亚克力 $700 – $1,600
      定制淋浴器 $1,200 – $3,200
      淋浴房玻璃门 $800 – $2,000
      新水龙头 $100 – $1,200
      增加水管设施 $700 – $1,800

         4.安装瓷砖淋浴器的成本

      瓷砖淋浴房的价格较高,这也反映在价格上,安装一个新的瓷砖淋浴房需要1550至8250纽币。如果你只需要更换墙面和地面材料,重新铺设一个淋浴房的费用在1500到3500纽币之间,这还不包括防水费用。它在颜色、图案和设计方面提供了更多选择。精心设计的瓷砖墙面可以让人眼前一亮。

      瓷砖的价格约为每平方米25纽币。天然石材和其他高端的选择可以达到每平方米75纽币。

       

      更换一个淋浴器的花费

      拆除旧设备 $100 – $200
      清理杂物 $200 – $400
      表面准备 $400 – $900
      新的淋浴器 $850 – $6,750
      总共 $1,550 – $8,250

      5.浴室翻新的平均花费

      奥克兰的大多数家庭都有一个独立的并且经常被忽视的厕所。通常空间很小,有老式的变色的乙烯基地板和一个马桶,实在很难令人满意。如果你正在装修你的浴室,那么这将是一个考虑将你的马桶也翻新一下的好时机。这将节省你的时间,因为浴室和马桶可以同时进行翻新。一般来说,如果厕所的翻新与浴室的翻新一起进行,会比较便宜,这样就不会出现劳动力/资源和产品的双重浪费。

      这包括在重新铺设瓷砖之前拆除浴室内的所有固定装置、马桶、洗涤槽(如果有的话)和配件。每个马桶大约需要5-10个左右的工作日,新的配件必须在开始之前购买。

       

      以下是一个作为粗略的厕所翻新价格和工作范围的指导。

      瓷砖工程

      1.供应和铺设墙砖至天花板高度 – 1900-3150纽币(取决于尺寸和复杂程度)

      2.供应和铺设厕所地砖 – 800纽币 – 1000纽币

      水管工程

      1.供应和安装01套马桶和坐便器喷头 – 520纽币 – 850纽币(取决于型号)

      2.供应和安装01套洗脸盆和水龙头-$250 – $420 (视型号而定)

      3.供应和更换马桶的不锈钢管道 – $450 – $800(取决于冷/热)。

      拖运和处理

      1.运输和处理产生的垃圾 – 350纽币 – 600纽币

      需要购买的物品

      1.购买新马桶和马桶翻新的配件 – 200纽币至300纽币及以上

      估算厕所翻新费用:6xxx纽币及以上的全部厕所翻新覆盖工作

      预计周转时间:5-6个工作日

      6.在新西兰装修一间浴室平均要花多少钱?

      2021年价格指南

      一旦你知道你装修的确切原因,你就可以开始计划你的装修预算了。如果你是通过一家装修公司进行装修,那么你的装修将包括拆卸、提供产品和固定装置、安装、防水、地板、油漆和最重要的项目管理。

       

      浴室装修类型      平均浴室装修费用
       

      标准浴室的小型改造(不是拆除所有东西)

      如果您希望将浴室的装修费用控制在较低水平,或者至少低于平均费用,您可以选择。与其完全重新布置浴室,不如将水槽、浴缸、淋浴器和马桶留在原处,这样成本会更低。只需将旧的型号换成新版本即可。

      $10,000 – $15,000
      中档浴室装修

      翻新浴室对房主来说有几个好处,不仅仅是让房间看起来更好和改善它的功能。在主浴室增加一个水槽,改善照明,让淋浴功能更好,这些都是浴室更新的几个例子,从长远来看会有回报。

      $21,000 – $24,000
       

      定制浴室装修(高端)

      如果你有更多的钱,你可以通过以下几个方式来升级你的装修。一种选择是定制高质量的台面

      一种选择是定制高质量的台面,比如石英或定制切割的花岗岩台面。此外,你可能想要投资高质量的灯具,比如青铜或铜和实木制成的水龙头,釉面的橱柜。

      $27,000 – $32,000 +

        욕실 리노베이션 비용은 얼마나 들까요? 2023

        욕실 이노베이션은 어쩌면 심플하고 단순해 보일 수 있습니다. 그러나 이것은 진실과 그렇지 않습니다. 사실 욕실 공사는 비교적 좁은 공간에 관련된 많은 시공 작업으로 인해 모든 인테리어 공사 중 가장 복잡합니다.

        202년 오클랜드의 평균 욕실 수리비용은 다양한 요소를 고려하여 결정할 수 있습니다. 욕실 리노베이션에는 디자이너, 해체공, 배관공, 전기공, 타일러, 방수공, 설치공, 페인트공, 그루터, 도장공이 포함됩니다. 작은 공간에서 위의 모든 사람을 관리한다고 상상해 보면 욕실 공사에 조직과 계획이 얼마나 중요한지 쉽게 이해가 갈 것입니다. 일반적으로 현장에 프로젝트 매니저가 상주하며 거래를 관리하는 경우에도 욕실 리노배이션이 완료되는 데는 2-3주가 걸립니다.

        스스로 현장을 관리하는 것은 매우 다양한 회사와 거래를 해야 하기 때문에 예산을 낭비하거나 프로젝트의 일정을 연장할 위험이 있습니다. 우리의 첫 번째 조언은 프로젝트 매니저를 제공하는 회사를 찾는 것입니다.

        프로젝트 관리에 앞서 욕실 시공과 관련된 비용에 대해 먼저 이야기해보겠습니다.
        욕실을 리노베이션 하기 전에 그 이유와 계획을 스스로에게 물어보세요. 욕실 시공에 관한 계획과 예산은 시공의 목적을 알아야 책정할 수 있습니다.

        다음 가지 사항에 대해 이야기 해봅시다.

        1.오클랜드에서 평균 욕실수리비용은 얼마인가요?
        2. 공사 비용은 왜 욕실 수리가 필요한지에 따라 결정됩니다.

        3욕실 리노베이션 비용 절감 요령
        4. 타일 샤워기 설치비용
        5. 새 변기 설치 비용
        6. 기본, 중간 그리고 고급에 따라 나뉘는 평균 욕실 수리 비용
        7. 시각화 된 정보 안에서 공유할 수 있는 요약된 기사

        1. 오클랜드에서 시공된 욕실 예시

        1. 오클랜드에서 욕실시공은 얼마나 들까요?

        여러분이 몇 년 동안 같은 집에서 살았든 더 오래된 집을 샀든 간에 여러분은 오래된 욕실을 수리해야 할 필요성에 놓였을지도 모릅니다. 대부분의 오클랜드 사람들이 알고 있듯이, 욕실수리는 많은 비용이 드는 공사입니다. 따라서 사람들이 욕실을 바꾸려고 마음을 먹었을 때 가장 먼저 던지는 질문 중 하나는 새로운 욕실 공사의 평균 비용이 얼마인가 하는 것입니다.

        하지만, 다양한 사람들이 다양한 이유로 시공을 하기 때문에 대답하기 가장 어려운 질문들 중 하나입니다.
        예를 들어, 주요 욕실 리노베이션에는 욕실 배치 변경, 새 욕실 가전제품 구입, 고정장치 구입, 바닥 교체, 새 페인트 교체, 배관 교체 및 전기 작업이 포함될 수 있으며, 중간 범위로 시공했을 때 18,000달러에서 22,000달러 사이일 수 있습니다(가장 인기 있는 선택으로 보입니다.)

         

        중간범위 시공의 추가사례

        힐스버러 임대용 리노베이션

        웨스트하버에 있는 클래식한 주방과 욕실 리노베이션

         그린레인의 욕실 리노베이션

         

        반면에 당신이 페인트 칠만 새로 하고 아주 소소한 것들만 바꿔야 한다면 욕실 리노베이션의 비용은 단지 몇 천 달러밖에 들지 않을 것입니다..
        그러나 대부분의 욕실 공사 비용은 이 두가지 비용의 사이의 범주에 있으므로 새로운 욕실시공 비용도 이 금액 사이에서 이루어 질것입니다.

        욕실공사 비용은 어떻게 산출할까요?

        • 욕실 시공의 목적을 결정하는 것부터 시작하세요. 공간이 더 필요하신 가요? 욕실이 집에 맞게 현대화되어야 하나요? 일단 목적을 결정하면 당신은 그 목표를 성취하기 위해 무엇이 필요한지 더 명확하게 알 수 있을 것입니다.
          • 집기, 조명, 페인트, 타일, 장식장, 바닥재 등 리모델링에 필요한 모든 것의 목록을 만드세요.
          • 필요한 인원의 인건비를 계산해 보세요.

        먼저 가장 크게 수리할 부분을 선택하고 세부적은 디테일을 추가하시면 전체 수리비용을 분산시킬 수 있습니다.

        2.당신의 욕실은 리노베이션이 필요할까요?

        계획을 세우면 공사비가 적절히 쓰이고 있는지 확신할 수 있습니다.
        집집마다 필요한 욕실공사의 이유가 다르듯이 적절한 제품을 고르고 욕조를 시공할지 샤워부스를 할 지의 선택은 당신이 욕실공사를 하려는 이유에서부터 결정됩니다.

        1.      신혼부부

        신혼부부나 젊은 연령대의 가족들은 중년층과는 필요사항이 다릅니다. 만약 아기가 있거나 아기를 계획하고 있다면 욕실 시공에 욕조를 포함하는 것은 현명한 선택일 것입니다.

        신혼부부를 위한 욕실 공사

        2.      확대가족 / 편의성의 증가

        가족이 늘어난다는 것은 성인이 집에서 편안하게 살 수 있는 더 많은 공간이 필요하다는 것을 의미합니다. 별도의 화장실을 만들거나 기존의 욕실을 화장실과 샤워로 분리할 필요가 있다는 것을 의미이기도 합니다. 집에 공간이 있다면 욕실 전체를 추가해 편의성을 높일 수 있습니다

        3대가 사는 가족을 위한 아본데일의 욕실 시공사례

         

        3.      매매를 위한 가치상승

        만약 집을 팔거나 임대하기 전에 가치를 더하려고 한다면, 우리는 고객들에게 너무 많은 돈을 쓰지 말라고 충고합니다. 임대인과 구매자들은 모두 개조할 필요가 없는 집을 선호합니다. 그들은 수리할 필요가 거의 없거나 조금이라도 업데이트된 집을 원합니다.
        일반적으로 말해서, 욕실 리노베이션에는 1달러당 1.50달러가 추가됩니다. 집을 팔려고 한다면 심플한 신제품과 붙박이를 사용하는 것이 좋습니다. 집을 팔기 위해 3,000달러짜리 디자이너 싱크대는 살 필요가 없습니다. 그렇게 하면 투자 수익이 나지 않기 때문입니다.

        4.     삶의 질 향상/고급 욕실 추가

        예산을 추가한다면 얼마든지 편안하고 고급스러운 욕실을 만들 수 있습니다. 작은 공간에 3000달러짜리 세면대를 가진 스파 느낌의 습식 사우나도 만들 수도 있습니다. 당신의 예산에 따라 가능성은 무한합니다.

        3. 욕실시공의 평균비용을 줄이는

        욕실시공의 평균비용은 단지 어림잡은 것이라는 것을 명심해야 합니다. 그러나 아래 목록을 참고하여 시공비를 줄일 수 있는 방법은 있습니다.

        • 욕실 캐비닛– 욕실 캐비닛을 교체하는 대신에 새로 색을 칠하는 것을 고려해보세요. 세면대와 욕조도 도색을 하여 새것처럼 보일 수 있습니다.
        • 모든 욕실제품을 바꾸는 대신 손잡이와 수도꼭지만 교체하세요. 단순히 싱크대, 욕조 손잡이와 수도꼭지를 바꾸는 것만으로도 욕실이 더 현대적으로 보입니다.
        • 밝게 하기 – 실제로 화장실을 넓어 보이게 하기 꼭 공간을 넓힐 필요는 없습니다.  좀 더 밝은 노란색이나 베이지색으로 칠하면 벽을 허물지 않고도 넓어 보이는 효과가 있습니다.

        전체적으로 욕실 리노베이션을 원하시거나, 좀더 현대적으로 바꾸길 원하신다면, , 0800-199-8889로 9시에서 5시 사이에 전화주세요. 기꺼이 도와드리겠습니다.

        단위

        인건비와 자재비

        아크릴 샤워시설 $700 – $1,600
        맞춤 샤워시설 $1,200 – $3,200
        샤워실 유리문 $800 – $2,000
        새 수전 $100 – $1,200
        배관 추가 $700 – $1,800

         

        4. 샤워시설 교체비용

        타일샤워 시공은 높은 가격대에 있으며 시공비는 1,550달러에서 8,250달러 사이입니다.  만약 방수처리 없이 벽과 바닥재만 교체한다면 1,500달러에서 3,500달러입니다 다양한 무늬와 색상을 선택하실 수 있으며 잘 디자인되어 시공된 타일벽은 세련된 멋을 선사합니다. 세라믹 타일은 평방미터당 약 25달러이며 천연석이나 다른 고급 옵션들은 평방미터당 75달러까지 오를 수 있습니다.

        샤워시설 교체비용

        총금액 $1,550 – $8,250

         

        5. 평균적인 화장실 수리비용

        오클랜드 대부분의 가정에는 방치되거나 분리된 화장실이 따로 있습니다. 구식장판이 깔려진 좁은 화장실은 자랑하고 싶은 공간은 아닐 겁니다. 만약 여러분이 욕실을 수리하고 있다면, 지금이 여러분의 화장실도 함께 바꿀 수 있는 좋은 기회일 것입니다.  화장실과 욕실을 동시에 수리하면 시간을 절약할 수 있습니다. 일반적으로 욕실과 화장실 리모델링이 동시에 이루어지면 인건비/자원 및 제품이 이중으로 증가하지 않기 때문에 더 저렴 해집니다.

        여기에는 타일링을 다시 만들기 전에 욕실의 모든 고정 장치, 화장실, 세면기(있는 경우) 및 부속품을 제거하는 작업이 포함됩니다. 화장실 한 개당 5-10일 정도 소요되며, 새 부속품을 구입해야 합니다.

        아래는 대략적인 화장실 수리비용과 작업범위 가이드입니다.

        타일작업

        1. 천장과 벽 타일 시공  — $1900-$3150 (크기와 복잡성에 따라 다름)
        2. 화장실 바닥타일 시공 — $800 – $1000

        배관작업

        1. 제품&시공 01 변기와 비데 스프레이 — $520 – $850 (모델에 따라 상이함)
        2. 제품&시공 01 세면대와 — $250 – $420 (제품에 Elk라 상이함)
        3. 스텐레스 파이프 교제 시공 — $450 – $800 (냉/온수 여부에 따라 상이함)

        운반&처리

        1. 잔해물 처리 운반 비용 — $350 – $600

        제품 구매비

        1. 새 변기 및 화장실 수리 악세라이 구매비용  — $200 에서 $300

        예상 화장실 수리 비용 :전체 수리여부에 따라 $6xxx.xx 이상
        예상소요일 :평일 기준 5-6일

        6. 욕실 리노베이션에는 얼마가 들까요? -뉴질랜드 평균- 에서 제공하는 욕실 시공비용

        2023 년 가격 가이드

        일단 여러분이 개조해야 하는 정확한 이유를 알게 되면, 여러분은 개조를 위한 예산을 계획하기 시작할 수 있습니다. 리노베이션 회사를 통해 리노베이션 작업을 수행할 경우 리노베이션에는 철거, 제품 및 고정 장치의 공급, 설치, 방수, 바닥재, 도장 및 가장 중요한 프로젝트 관리가 포함됩니다.

         

        욕실 인테리어 타입 평균적인 욕실 수리 비용
        변경이 적은 기본욕실( 전체교체 없음)

        욕실 수리 비용 예산을 평균 비용보다 적게 잡고 싶다면, 선택할 수 있습니다. 욕실을 완전히 새로 고치는 대신에, 싱크대, 욕조, 샤워기, 화장실을 위치 변경없이 교체만 하는 것입니다.

        $8,000 – $13,000
         

        중간가격대의 욕실 수리

        화장실을 개조하는 것은 방을 더 좋게 보이게 하고 기능을 향상시키는 것 외에도 집주인에게 몇 가지 이점이 있다. 마스터 욕실에 세면대를 하나 더 추가하고, 조명을 개선하고, 샤워 기능을 더 좋게 만드는 것은 장기적으로 효과가 있는 욕실 업데이트의 몇 가지 예이다.

        $18,000 – $22,000
         

        맞춤 욕실 리노베이션(최고급)

        예산이 넉넉하다면 몇 가지 업그레이드한 방법으로 시공을 할 수 있습니다. 더 높은 품질의 제품에 투자하고 싶다면 쿼츠(석영, 광물함유제품)나 맞춤 제작 화강암과 같은 고품질의 상판을 제작하거나, 청동 또는 동으로 만든 수도꼭지와 단단한 나무, 유리로 된 캐비닛과 같은 제품을 사용할 수 있습니다.

        $23,000 – $26,000 +

                  Epoxy Grout VS Cement Grout for Tiling: Advantages & Disadvantages

                  photo-1523413651479-597eb2da0ad6-1000, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation AucklandAre you faced with the question of choosing between Epoxy Grouting or Cement Grouting for tiling?

                  No doubt, kitchen and bathroom tiling can look dull and begrimed when grout begins to flake or discolored. Over time due to wear and tear, some surfaces require an excellent type of sealing between dissimilar surfaces like countertops, and underneath basins and sinks. For these areas, we need to choose the best grout for tiling. Do you know the difference between cement grout and epoxy grout? If not, then continue reading this article because we will compare both these options, and help you choose the best one.

                  No doubt, Epoxy grout has become the most widely used option for grouting. Various renovation companies around the world, especially in New Zealand are using Epoxy grouting in tiled showers, and floors. However, there must be a reason for it. Are you interested in knowing what that is? Then continue reading this article, we have a lot to share with you.

                  Why Do Bathroom or Kitchen Grout Crack?

                  No doubt, grout crack is common and happens mainly due to movement between two surfaces. Homes are continually moving in tiny increments as a result of humidity, foundation settling, temperature, and many other factors. However, if the grout in the kitchen or bathroom is a rigid material, then it results in cracks when a bathtub moves on the way while the installed tile wall moves another way.

                  There are various ways in which installation can doom grout to failure, so it is vital to give your bathroom tile project in the professional hands. For instance, if the grout is indecorously mixed with too much water concentration or additives, then it could leave air pockets after the grout has fully dried. That could make the grout frail and extremely weak, and eventually lead to cracks.

                  Grout can also be cracked if too little adhesive is used in tiles installation. If a tile pulls away from the wall after the adhesive dries, then it is up to the grout to hold in the right place, and that stress is likely to cause cracks.

                  Even old or damaged grout can make the most beautiful looking tiles ugly. It also causes structural damage to your home. However, re-grouting is a process of removing the old and poorly installed grout with the new one for better results.

                  So now you know the main reasons why you may need re-grouting, here are two forms of grouting you may need to know. However, if you are looking for the professional grouting services, then we are here to help you. We have been in this industry for the past many years, and has helped thousands of residential and commercial buildings with the best services.

                  Epoxy Grout

                  Unlike cement grout, Epoxy grout is made from two-part epoxy resins. These two are mixed with filler powder. This grouting option has been used for renovation companies for many years because of its durability, non-porous, and stain-resistance nature.

                  Cement Grout

                  Cement grout is a mixture of sand and water and often comes in un-sanded varieties. It is the injection under pressure of cement to fill fractures or voids in the soil or concrete structure. It is a process used to fill voids with cement injected under pressure.

                  So, What Is The Main Difference Between Epoxy Grout and Cement Grout?

                  As we know, cement grout is made up of some cementitious powder mixture. While epoxy grout is made from epoxy resins, and a filler powder, which however makes epoxy grout extremely durable, non-porous and stain proof. When it comes to cement grout, then this is the cheap grouting option as compared to epoxy grout because of its porous nature. It can easily absorb water and so stain that results in discoloration over time.

                  Most people ask a question about epoxy grout, whether it is waterproof or not, so here is the answer.

                  Is Epoxy Grout Waterproof?

                  The answer is yes, it is waterproof. Its non-porous nature makes it waterproof. It is resistant to staining, which makes it the first choice of many people. However, it is not recommended to combine it with cement grout as it can result in stain non-resistance.

                  Now you have the basic idea of cement and epoxy grout; now we will discuss each one in more detail to help you decide the best grout for tiling.

                  Detailed Overview

                  What Is Cement Grout? 

                  Portland cement is the most common type of cement, manufactured from clay and chalk which hardens when undergoes water, and upon getting harden resembles Portland stone in color. Cement grout contains filler particles of various sizes and water-retention additive. No doubt, cement grout has been used for residential and commercial applications because of its multiple properties.

                  It comes in various colors to let the users match it with the tile color. For applying cement grout on a surface, it is first mixed with water and then applied with a trowel. However, the presence of a water-absorbent agent in it impedes the drying, and let the cement set and dry slowly for maximum hardness. Drying time is one of the main reasons why people don’t like cement grout.

                  It is formed by mixing cement powder with water in the same ratio. No doubt, setting, and hardening are the two main features always to consider while looking for grout for tiling. Cement grouting is more time consuming and so it affects its performance. Its efficiency also gets decrease because of excessive voids that hit its stiffness, porousness. But anyway, it is still used as an excellent traditional option to fill voids and gaps in the structures. It is not recommended to use cement grout with porous tiles like natural stone, quarry, and many more because this combination can stain the surfaces.

                  Cement grouting has various variations, like sanded and unsanded. Let’s discuss what these are.

                  Sanded vs. Unsanded

                  The main difference between sanded and unsanded is sanded one contains more sand particles, while the other one has a smooth texture with less fine powder particles.

                  The big sand particles of sanded cement grouts look and feel resolute. Sanded cement is recommended where the voids are about 1/8 inch wide, and especially for its durability and power to prevent cracking. One needs to be careful while applying this type of cement as it can scratch the surfaces

                  Unsanded grouts don’t have visible grit. These are the best for filling 1/16 to 1/8 inch wide voids in the structures. It is not recommended to use it with more full seams because it can result in cracks due to lack of binding power of sanded grouts.

                  Latex-Modified Grout

                  Formulation of sanded grouts can be done with a latex polymer additive. This process can be made possible by including latex polymer additive in the dry mix or by adding it while mixing grout with water. This additive plays an essential role in enhancing the grout’s water-proof nature and increasing its strength.

                  Maintenance of Cement Grout

                  Cement grouts are the most popular grouts for tiling, and it works best in any area where there’s a need for title installation. However, the latex additives grouts can stain and feature the porous properties. Therefore, it is essential to seal all the cementitious grouts. This sealing can be done with a penetrating sealer once or twice in a year. This step is the right choice since it keeps the cement grout free from stains and ensures that it’s fully waterproof.

                  tiles-1373189_1920-1000, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation AucklandWhat is Epoxy Grout? 

                  Epoxy grout is a unique and popular grout for tiling that does not use Portland cement or water in the mixing process. It features a hardener, pigments, epoxy resin, and silica fillers. Epoxy grout is less porous compared to the cementitious grout. Also, epoxy grouts work best in areas containing greases and acids such as kitchens.

                  The construction sector applies a variety of epoxy resins such as polyurethane, epoxy, and many more. Yes, epoxy has a name that implies the presence of cement material, but it does not feature any cement percentage. For the epoxy hardener, it plays an essential role in initiating epoxy grout’s hardening process. Also, the epoxy hardener is vital in repairing cavities and hairline cracks in concrete structures. Other than this, this element can work best as a primer or bonding agent.

                  There are two primary forms of epoxy grouts

                  Which include sanded and unsanded epoxy grouts. However, a vast difference exists between the sand used for these forms and the one used for the cementitious grouts. Also, epoxy grouts give a little challenge to the amateurs since they set up reasonably fast.  Other than this, epoxy grouts go at a relatively high price compared to the cement grouts. They cost around $12 per kg as the cement grouts cost between $2 and $4 per kg. But epoxy grout is the right choice in any place where there’s a need for maximum stain resistance.

                  However, there are high chances for epoxy grout to stain the unglazed and porous surfaces badly. Examples of these surfaces include the limestone and quarry tiles. It is essential to seal the epoxy grout before grouting if there’s a need to use them on these tiles.

                  Epoxy grout is a product of two different resins that contain a filler in their mixer. This feature is the main behind epoxy grout’s waterproof nature. Also, this is the reason why epoxy grout works best with the harsher cleaning products. Other than this, the thin sets property of epoxy grout gives higher chemical resistance and bond strength compared to cementitious grouts.

                  Maintenance of Epoxy Grout

                  The main benefit of epoxy grouts is that they don’t have to get sealed as for the case of cementitious grouts. But, there are high chances for them to get stained. Scrubbing epoxy grouts with a mixture of water and vinegar, or bleach and water is the right way to clean them. It is important to take care the epoxy grout, as it can easily be stained due to various factors.

                  Modified Epoxy Grouts

                  Epoxy grout modified with Portland cement is another hybrid grout available for tiling. This grout shares the same characteristics with the standard Portland cement. Therefore, this means that this grout requires regular sealing. However, this hybrid grout is more stain-resistant, harder, and stronger compared to the standard cementitious grouts.

                  Why Use Epoxy Grout? 

                  Yes, epoxy grout features a variety of benefits, but it’s more challenging to work with compared to the regular grout for tiling. Also, epoxy grout tends to feature a plastic look, which a certain percentage of homeowners who are renovating their home don’t like. Other than this, epoxy grout goes at a high cost, and most tilers charge more for using it as opposed to the regular grout.

                  Regular grout is the most preferred for other individuals since it’s easy to design in outside corners. These include the places where the tile wraps around the shower niche, wall, or kerb. Some people don’t like epoxy grout since they find it hard to achieve the same effect with it. Epoxy takes much time to set up in a grout joint. Also, epoxy grout consumes less time and requires a smaller mix to work with since it sets quicker compared to the regular grout.

                  Other than this, epoxy grout needs an acid wash, which is essential in removing any excess resin residue from the tile surfaces. Also, some epoxy grouts work well only with glass. Here, most brands feature a unique glass epoxy and regular epoxy. The filler used in the mixture is the only thing that creates a difference between these two. For the glass tiles, they have a smoother filler, meaning it will not scratch the delicate tiles.

                  What Are The Key Differences? 

                  The cleaning and installation time is the primary thing that creates a big difference between regular grout and epoxy grout. Also, the cost is another factor that separates the two. For epoxy grout, its price can be three to four times higher compared to the regular grout. This cost explains the main reason why some installers don’t prefer epoxy grout.

                  Which Are The Places To Use Epoxy Grout Versus Cement Grout? 

                  Epoxy grout is the choice for tiled floors and showers. It is the most preferred option for these areas since adds a second layer of protection for the moisture that’s under the tile. The first protection layer is the waterproofing section. Also, epoxy grout works best for splashback tiling over vanities.

                  Color is another essential thing that attracts most people to epoxy grout. This color originates from epoxy grout’s filler and remains constant throughout. For the regular grout, it is possible to remove its pigment during the cleaning process.

                  There is a vast difference between using epoxy grout and regular cement grout. The main difference is that the two feature unique processes. This uniqueness covers everything from mixing up to cleaning.

                  For the case of bathroom tiling, it is essential to bathroom professionals who possess the right experience. Ensure that they have a deep understanding of either epoxy grout or regular cement grout and their applications. Also, don’t forget to note the cost difference between regular cement grout and epoxy grout. Yes, epoxy grout goes at a relatively high cost but is the right choice for most people because of its durability, waterproofing, and staining features.

                  Why No One Loves Regular Cement Grout

                  Yes, most people use cement grout in tile work, but it is not the right option. They prefer cement-based grout products because of their thinner properties compared to the mortar and building cement. This feature makes it possible for this regular grout to flow better into cracks and any other area. However, their porous nature is one thing that destroys the impression of all these benefits. The cement grout mixture features several undetectable openings, which becomes evident even after it dries.

                  Through these pores, dirt and other elements from the outside find access to the grout, making it embedded. They result in staining and gives a chance for the embedding of mold and mildew into the cement grout. Cement-based grout act as the conduit for stains. Also, cement makes it possible for the stains to adhere to the grout lines. Therefore, there are high chances for the new grout lines to start taking on discoloration whenever they get exposed to the staining materials.

                  Other than this, cement-based products do not feature waterproof properties. Therefore, there are high chances for excess water and moisture found in tiled showers to cause damage to this type of grout for filing. Also, this explains the main reason sealing is an essential requirement for all projects using the cement-based grout.

                  Features That Make Epoxy Grout The Right Choice

                  Most people prefer epoxy grout because it’s sturdy and durable. It’s a grout for tiling that’s highly resistant to climatic changes, stains, harsh weather conditions, cracks, and stains. These features make epoxy grout the right choice for those individuals looking for the efficient and most durable way to do tile work. Its strength is the main reason it works perfectly for outdoors, indoors or tile job.

                  Also, it is an excellent option for areas with high traffic because of its chemical, stain, and crack-resistant properties. Other than this, resistance to climatic changes and harsh weather conditions makes epoxy grout the right choice. Therefore, it’s the most preferred option in areas where it’s likely to get subjected to severe cold or excessive amounts of humidity.

                  It’s common to come across people talking about how it’s challenging to work with epoxy grout

                  Yes, epoxy products were so complicated in the past, but now that’s history. Nowadays, it’s easy to work with epoxy because of changes in its formulation. Advancement in various products such as Litokol Starlike Grout makes using epoxy grout a more manageable task compared to when using other grouts for tilling. The establishment of Starlike Grout is essential for easy clean-up. Other than this, Starlike Grout is 100% safe and non-toxic. Therefore, it is the right choice for the installers, environment, people, and pets.

                  Yes, epoxy grout costs more than cement-based grout, but that’s not a big issue in the long run. Also, there are several reasons why you need to go for the epoxy grout as opposed to the traditional grout. It’s not expensive to upgrade from the cement-based grout to epoxy grout. A good example is the 20SQM bathroom renovation project. Here, tile and professional installation cost go at $1,500. The same job can get upgraded from cement-based grout to epoxy grout with an additional fee of 5%, which is less than $75. Therefore, this shows why everyone needs to go for epoxy grout.

                  Epoxy grout is more durable compared to the traditional grout. Therefore, this means that epoxy grout is worth the higher expense. There are minimal to zero chances for this grout to crumble and start falling apart over time. For the case of cement grout, it tends to weaken. Thus, this means that there are high chances to incur additional expenses while redoing the tile. Epoxy grout requires only light maintenance, and it can last a lifetime.

                  Is It Possible To Put Epoxy Grout Over Cement-Based Grout?

                  Yes, it is possible to put epoxy grout over cement-based grout. However, it is essential to dig the existing cement out of the joints until its halfway the tile’s depth before doing this process. Scraper or the grout saw is the most appropriate tool to use for this case. This depth is vital for the new epoxy grout so it can adhere to the tile edges and the remaining sanded grout.  For overhead installation, it is crucial to leave the epoxy in the bucket for a few minutes after mixing so it can set up. Through this, the epoxy mixture becomes stiffer and tackier.

                  Summary – Pros vs Cons

                   

                  Cement Grout

                  • Presence of porous features which makes it possible for water to seep down into the cement grout. Therefore, the material is not good since it can cause the growth of bacteria, mold, or mildew under the grout’s surface
                  • It cannot work best in narrow joints.

                  • It has an excellent bond strength
                  • Epoxy needs low maintenance compared to cement grout.

                  Cons

                  • It goes at a relatively high cost compared to cement grouts
                  • It’s not useful sealing epoxy grout since this process can compromise its safety and effectiveness
                  • The epoxy grout need to be mixed in small batches, and there’s limited working after mixing this grout
