Typical Bathroom Water Damage Repair Cost

Bathroom water damage restoration will vary by the extent of the damage and the size of the bathroom. While the most common reason for needing water restoration services in a bathroom are due to an overflowing toilet, chronically leaking shower, or broken sink pipe, anything in a bathroom can cause water damage if it breaks. Your bathroom is one of the most vulnerable areas in your home when it comes to water damage because everything inside it uses water, which means there are lots of plumbing components that can fail. 

Obviously, larger bathrooms and more significant water damage will be costlier to clean up and fix than more minor damage or damage over a smaller space because the restoration will require more materials to complete. Bathroom water restoration typically costs $2,500-6,000 on average.

If a toilet, bathtub, or shower faucet has broken, that unit will need to be repaired or replaced to prevent future water issues, which can influence the cost of the project as well. Higher end bathrooms will obviously have more costly repairs because the materials are more expensive to source.

When water damage occurs and items need to be replaced, some homeowners decide to turn a bad situation into an opportunity for improvement by upgrading their bathroom instead of simply replacing what was already in there. If you’re thinking about having a higher quality toilet or shower enclosure put in to replace your outdated model, understand that the cost will be higher, but you will also get more satisfaction out of the new addition. Similarly, you may opt to have something new (like a jetted bathtub or heated flooring) installed by a plumber while major water restoration work is being done, which will increase the overall cost of the project but shouldn’t really be considered as part of the restoration job.

Whether you have a flood or ongoing leak that has damaged your home bathroom, calling a local water restoration company immediately after finding the damage is key to minimizing the expense of cleaning up. When water damage is left unaddressed, mold and mildew can begin growing quickly, increasing the cost and difficulty of clean up. Once mold spores can be seen or smelled, it has likely spread in other areas as well, meaning that mold remediation can require tearing down drywall, pulling up flooring, and making other costly modifications as part of the cleanup.
