Bathroom Remodel Massachusetts: Facing the Obstacles

In the last few articles, we’ve highlighted many different aspects of kitchen remodeling. While kitchens can sell a home, bathrooms can too. So we’re going to switch it up and talk about Massachusetts bathroom remodel for a bit. Bringing functionality, updated style, and more efficiency, this type of remodeling is a must in any home. However, there are common obstacles that often arise. Here is a look.


Mold and Mildew

Possibility the number one problem a homeowner faces when tackling a remodel, especially a bathroom, is mold and mildew growth. According to the CDC, “If you can see or smell mold, a health risk may be present. You do not need to know the type of mold growing in your home, and CDC does not recommend or perform routine sampling for molds. No matter what type of mold is present, you should remove it. Since the effect of mold on people can vary greatly, either because of the amount or type of mold, you can not rely on sampling and culturing to know your health risk.”

When undergoing a remodel, chances are, you won’t spot mold or mildew until demolition has begun. Clearly, the situation calls for remediation, which may offset your timeline depending on the specific situation.



When it comes to plumbing, you just have to hope that the original contractor knew what they were doing. If the plumbing is incorrectly installed, you’ll again be set back as this is a matter that can not be left unattended. However, your project may require new plumbing, even if the old plumbing is stable. This situation all depends on the layout of the new design.
