While it's common for homeowners to use the words "remodeling" and "renovation" synonymously, we are doing our best in 2018 to help people understand the important difference between the two similar words. The words represent different ways of improving your bathrooms and better understanding both may help when choosing which company to hire for improvements in your home. We intentionally chose the word "remodeling" for our company name - Diamond Bath Remodeling - and here's why:
What is Bathroom Renovation? After many years in this business we've found the best way to explain "renovation" is with the simple phrase: Remove and Replace. If you are removing a bathroom vanity and replacing it with a new vanity that does not require you to move water pipes or add electrical outlets, that is renovation. If you are taking out an old exhaust fan and replacing it with a new fan / bluetooth speaker combination, that is also renovation. Now, if you're removing a tub and shower unit to make way for a larger shower that will require water and drain pipes to be relocated, along with the removal of a wall - you are no longer renovating - you've entered into the more challenging realm of remodeling!
What is Bathroom Remodeling? Remodeling is the act of physically changing the structure (or infrastructure) of an existing space. For our crews this frequently means moving walls, relocating plumbing, eliminating or creating closets, modifying windows, adding electrical circuits (heated floors anyone?) and more. Ultimately, remodeling goes way beyond simple "remove and replace" to the point of structural and functional changes to your previously existing space. While our competitors might focus on surface improvements to your counter tops or tub, Diamond Bath is a credible company with years of experience at ALL aspects of bathroom remodeling and renovation!
When most local homeowners contact Diamond Bath to inquire about pricing, our customer support team tries to determine whether they are looking for a true remodeling project or a simple bathroom renovation. In terms of both pricing and timeframe for delivery, bathroom renovations can be completed in less time and for less money than remodeling projects. As you start to think seriously about what you would like from your next bathroom, please keep in mind these simple differences between remodeling and renovation projects!
