Shower Repair and Tiling Cost
We've reach out to a contractor that we got from word of mouth recommendation. They came over and agreed it's likely bad tiling/grouting. To fix it we need to pull off the existing tile, check for any extensive water damage or mold in the walls. If not major issues replace the vapor barrier, re-tile and grout. Then reinstall the existing shower base and two glass walls.
The quote we received seemed overpriced and I was hoping someone could give me an idea of what's normal for Toronto market. The contractors quote was ~ $6500 ($5400 labour, $1100 materials). Quote was for 2 full time contractors for 5 days which seems ridiculous for the size of the job. A rough provided breakdown:
- 1 day demo
- 1 day to repair wall, install insulation/vapor barrier and seal, install shower base and tile backer
- 1 day install tiles
- 1 day grout
- 1 day reinstall fixtures and cleanup
2 labour days of tiling and 2 for grouting seems extreme. Same with a full day for fixture installation and cleanup. Am I being unreasonable or is the quote too high? The quote assumes there's no extensive damage like mold or significant water damage.
Thanks very much!
