Planning and budgeting for a bathroom remodel can be overwhelming. But for your safety and convenience, you must address any problems in your bathroom and update the space accordingly.
There are certain signs you can watch out for to know if your bathroom needs a remodel. Maris Home Improvements shares four of them here.
1. Visible Damage
If your bathroom has cracked tiles, broken fixtures, or a leaking shower, a bathroom renovation should fix these issues. These problems can disrupt your routine and even pose risks of accidents. They will also cost you time and money in the long run. If you leave chips and cracks unattended for too long, they will grow, increasing the cost of your repairs.
2. Mold Growth
Mold, along with other obvious signs of damage, is a problem that is both unsightly and hazardous. Mold can be caused by a wide variety of factors, including broken pipes, outdated bathtubs and showers, or a lack of ventilation.
Mold and mildew are often due to leaks. The leaks can occur in the shower or tub or around the toilet or sink. You will often see bubbling walls or peeling paint where water is leaking. Another sign is damage to the ceiling in the room below the bathroom — which means water is leaking into the floor. You have to be cautious when dealing with water leaks. Water can cause serious damage to the wood framing of your house, and when that happens, it can be costly to repair.
4. Changing Needs
Your needs change as your family grows or you get older. If you have a child or you’re living with an older adult, you may need to do some modifications to make your bathroom safer and more accessible to them.
