The bathroom renovation process usually takes between four to five weeks. The process is often a bit slower during the winter as the weather tends to slow down the drying times.
The waterproofing and sand cement bed all need to fully cure before moving to the next stage.
Shower screens take up to 10 days to be ordered and installed. They can’t be ordered until the wall tiles are installed so that we can take accurate measurements. All of these contribute to the duration of the renovation.
- How much of the old internal linings will need to be replaced?
- Will the doors, jambs, or windows require replacing?
- How much painting will need to be done?
- Is the bathroom on a slab or timber floor?
- Is there asbestos?
- Does the plumbing need to be relocated or completely replaced?
- Is the timber floor still in good condition, or is it roed or damaged by termites and moisture?
- Do you want underfloor heating?
- Is there a need for some extensive electrical work?
- What are the prices of your preferred tiles and other inclusions?
- How high are you planning to tile?
- What is the level of access to the room from the driveway? In situations where there is a considerable distance or difficulty, the price will vary.

Of course, you can! From experience, this usually isn’t a problem. Clients will usually stay in the home while we renovate. Sometimes they choose to go away for a week or two to avoid the mess. If it is an ensuite, we like to have the main bedroom vacated and fully covered with drop sheets and black plastic. The first week of the renovation is usually the most challenging; after which, there is very little dust.
This can be a problem when there isn’t another bathroom in the house. We have had occasions where the client has hired a site WC. You can rent a small mobile bathroom mounted on a trailer. You will be without a WC for 2-3 weeks while we do the renovation if you don’t have a second toilet, renting one is necessary to ensure the experience is as stress-free as possible. This needn’t be a nightmare; it needs to be exciting!
We provide a 7-year warranty on the waterproofing. All the other products that will be installed come with warranties. You also have the security of knowing that we have been in the business of executing excellent bathroom renovations for over thirty years in the Forster Tuncurry Great Lakes area.
We understand the importance of seamless communication; you can be sure that we will keep you well informed throughout the project. Our Site Foreman and Steve are both available during the day. You will also be able to reach us via messages, emails, and phone calls. We will endeavour to let you know who will be on-site next and when we will need access. This allows you to be able to go about your daily activities with minimal disruption. To facilitate a seamless process from start to finish, we use Buildxact, a project management software, to help keep every job on schedule.
Variations are used when the scope of work changes and/or the value of the inclusions change. They can potentially lead to delays in the schedule, but that is no problem for us to manage. Variations will be issued from our software and sent to you for approval via email. Variations will be subject to a 20 % builders’ margin.
You will receive copies of the waterproofing certificate and warranty issued by Dazco Waterproofing. They are a local company and our preferred installer. We generally have professional photos taken of the completed project, which we will share with you. These are always a great thing to have to show your friends and family.
We engaged Steve Nelson and his team to renovate our old kitchen and family room. From the outset the experience was beyond any of our expectations. The amount of support in the early design stages was tremendous. All through the project the level of professionalism, communication, quality, and care was excellent. Many of Steve’s suggestions were included in the final project. What to many might be a simple kitchen “reno” was for us the realisation of a dream family space and it could not have been a more successful without the fabulous team at B&S Nelson Building Services. Thanks Steve, we are only too happy to recommend you and all your team.
Steve & Bob Nelson did a complete inside and outside renovation, plus added a living room and extra deck space for us ten years ago. Completely transformed our house. This year we added another bedroom, bathroom and bigger deck, plus upgraded over 160 square metres of floor tiles and carpet. Didn’t hesitate to contact Steve as we were pleased with the first renovation and even more so with the latest project. Steve’s tradesmen were excellent and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended Steve for any renovations or additions.
Steve recently undertook the job of designing and renovating our 30 year old bathroom. His contractors and staff transformed the old into a fantastic, modern new bathroom. We love the finished product and were extremely happy with the level of professionalism that he applied to all our interactions. Steve worked with us on the design and was flexible in his approach to any changes we wanted to make throughout the build. I would recommend B&S Nelson Building Services for their reliability, honesty, quality workmanship and great service.
As interstate residents living in South Australia we did extensive research locally here in Forster to investigate recommendations for a local builder to manage our Forster property renovations. B&S Nelson was a name that consistently came up and after meeting Steve and discussing our reno plans we felt very comfortable to leave our project in his hands. We have no hesitation in saying that we made the right decision. Living interstate we really did rely on Steve not only as our builder but as our project manager. Steve constantly sent us a flow of photos of our site progress. We truly felt confident and informed through the total renovation. During our few onsite visits it was great to meet his team of builders, plumbers, electricians and painters who all added to the outstanding result we obtained with our Foster home. Every day now we enjoy the results of the work Steve’s team achieved and would be very happy to recommend B&S Nelson to anyone considering any home renovation.
B&S Nelson renovated our holiday house in mind 2018. Steve was a pleasure to work with and has a practical “can do” approach to all challenges. As we were not around all the time, there was more responsibility on the builder. Our project was on me and on budget. We would definitely recommend Steve and B&S Nelson!
Steve and his wonderful team recently finished a complete renovation of our bathroom and we are thrilled with the end result, we found Steve and his team to be helpful, friendly and professional. Shaun you really are a tiling genius! The work is first class and we will be seeking Steve’s help with future projects. Highly recommended.
