A new Alabaster house had a hole around the whirlpool tub because of improper installation. It should have been set in a mortar bed to give it proper support. It had been on the market on and off and not selling.
The owner also asked if we could fix a leak in the shower and be the general contractor of a bathroom remodel. Of course, we can! This eliminated "the middle man." The total cost was only $12,000.
HGTV says bathroom remodeling increases home value by at least 100% of the investment. In this case, it was over 200%. The improvements increased the appraisal by $25,000, and the house sold quickly.
