Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.

Bath £50 £250

Having a new bath installed can greatly transform your bathroom and make using it all the more pleasurable. Replacing a worn, small or unattractive bathtub makes for a far more relaxing bath time and makes your bathroom a better space in which to spend your time.

If you are replacing an old bath in your current bathroom then the job will be a simple one, with the old bath being removed and the new one being placed in the same area. There may be some remedial work to do in terms of replacing or adding tiling or other décor, but the job should not take long for a professional to complete.

If your bath is much larger than a previous one or if you want to reorientate it then costs will be higher, as this will require extra work to fit the bath in as well as extra pipework. There  may also be added costs for tiling, bath surround or redecoration.

If the bath is being installed in an entirely new bathroom, such as a second bathroom or ensuite, then the major cost will be in preparing the room for the bath and making sure the right pipework is installed to get water into and out of the bathroom.

You will need a qualified plumber to carry out all of this kind of work, to ensure that your bath is fitted and installed correctly, so that it drains properly and does not leak at all. The size and design of the bath will dictate the overall cost of the job, with fittings such as taps adding to the cost. The installation cost itself, however, should be fairly standard and any good plumber should have the job carried out within a morning, or a day at the very most.
