I’m doing my bathroom remodel and I just wanted to throw this by somebody. I just got my quote from my plumber. He will be: Removing the old tub and surround (one pice unit, sawzall job), supplying the new tub and surround (Lasco), installing the new unit, new supply line for the toilet, setting new toilet (I supply), also he will be roughing a second sink with the supply and drain. He says he will be able to do it all in one day with another guy. So two guys one day. The quote for the labor and the tub and surround (as well as his time to get the tub and surround) is $2200 flat.
Does this make sense?
If I figure $75/hour for 16 hours (two guys) that is $1200, maybe 2 hours (one guy)to get tub and surround is another $150. So that is $1350 for the labor. That leaves $850 for the tub and surround and misc. parts.
I’m not one to ask for a breakdown on everything but this seems a little high to me. If it is a little high so be it, he was highly reccommended so I wouldn’t mind paying a slight premium. However if it way off base I would appreciate knowing.
