You don't say what area you are in, nor how much resources you intend to apply to the change. The usual remodel consists of the marketing (to get calls for remodel), estimation stage, permit cost development with subs (electrical temporary service, carpentry, roofing and or siding, bonding (and or sub-contracting), contracting, scheduling after contract award, staging for the demolition, disposal area and material staging, insurance, scaffolding, workers comp and OSHA posting, temp toilets for workers, first phase billing, demolition and sub floor repair (remodel), new rough service with electrical, sub floor, heater relocate, vent through roof, window relocate, plumbing rough in, cabinetry rough in, shower pan, skylight?, inspection, owner walk through, finish surfaces, second billing, finish plumbing carpentry, plumbing, electrical, test, inspect, clean up jobsite, remove dumpster & toilet, walk through, references, final billing. In California we find that the more affluent residential market provides the stronger support for remodel with much less damage to repair, and usually a floor plan remodel without much structural change, but mostly fixture upgrades. Things like towel warmers, larger quieter exhaust fans, sauna/spas, exercise - weight room tie ins, walk in dressing rooms, are the norm. When the lower income residences are contracted it usually entails underground work, septic tank demo, sewer tie ins, crawl space work, attic retrofits, dormers, stairway relocations. A lot more work, and a lot less profit margin. Still interested?

: I'm a plumbing contractor. We have been in new construction for 20 years. We are looking into moving into the bath remodeling field. I am looking for ideas,where to start, etc.....
