How much does it cost to replace a tile floor in a small bathroom?

Answered by Jeffrey ~ April 20, 2012 ~ No Comments

The floor in our home's bathroom needs to be replaced due to water damage. Water got under the tiles and made the sub-floor swell and loosened the tiles. About how much might it cost to redo the tile floor in a bathroom (10 x 7)

Hi Nicole. There are several variables that come into play when trying to estimate the cost of replacing the tile floors in your bathroom. The first issue is whether any of your sub-floor has water damage and will need to be removed -- from your description, I would think there is a strong possibility that at least some of it will require replacement.

The other item that can cause your estimate range to fluctuate quite a bit is the flooring tile. While many bathrooms have a standard tile that can be budget friendly, there are also more exotic floor tile varieties that can be fairly expensive. Some types require more labor for the tile installation which can affect the flooring price as well.

I can give you a very approximate price for repairing your water damage, but this is the type of project that should have a visual inspection to arrive at an accurate cost. I recommend that you have several local tile or bathroom remodeling contractors look at the job and submit estimates for the repair and flooring installation.

My estimate of your potential costs is about $1,200 to $1,500. This includes replacing several sheets of plywood, tearing out the old tile flooring, and installing a standard ceramic flooring tile. As I mentioned, this price could be higher or lower depending on the variables involved.
