Scope of Work: Bathroom Remodel After Termite Damage
Town: Morris Plains, NJ
Timing: 5 weeks
The homeowners of this Morris Plains NJ home had to deal with the headache and expense of having a termite infestation. Once the pest control specialists treated the area, the home was free of the bugs. However, the damage they caused when they were alive remained.
Because of the termite damage, this straightforward bathroom remodel required a little more work. Still, in five weeks this hallway bathroom went from pink and blue to updated soft neutrals.
Morris Plains Bathroom Remodel
The first step of this remodel was to remove everything. We completely gutted the space, removing the dated fixtures as well as the termite-damaged wood. There was a small, open section of shelving just outside the bathroom. The homeowners wanted to remove this shelving and make the space part of the new bathroom. This would allow space for a vanity sink instead of a pedestal sink.
Once all of the demolition was completed, we reframed the bathroom. A new frosted glass window was installed in the shower. We framed the window with water-resistant Azek and a marble ledge was installed underneath.
Our crew installed a new white tub. They also laid all the new shower and floor tile.
A built-in floor-to-ceiling cabinet was installed, as well as the single vanity. These changes increased the square footage of this small bathroom, and also provided some much-needed storage.
Now this hallway bath is safe, sturdy and up-to-date.
