Remodeling a bathroom has the potential to take it from merely functional to a rejuvenating oasis. With plumbing and electric involved, it’s more complicated than a do-it-yourself home improvement project. Like any major remodel, much of a bathroom project’s success lies in selecting the right contractor for the job. In Florida, especially along the Gulf Coast, it’s important that bathroom remodel contractors are familiar with the many design styles that make up the local aesthetic.
With Pinterest boards full of dream spaces and bathroom remodeling ideas, it’s also key that your new bathroom be a reflection of your needs — and in your budget. This list of general contractors in Tampa Bay contains only firms that excel at bathroom remodels and bathroom design. Each firm is ranked based on the size of their project budgets, the breadth of their portfolio, and their industry recognition. Whether you are taking on a major renovation project by adding an en suite or giving the guest powder room a facelift, these teams and their project managers can deliver.
