    Cost of new bathroom installation - is this fair? 31st Mar 06 at 12:30 PM
    Hi, I am having a new bathroom suite installed and I have a quote for the work. Basically, the quote is for ripping out the existing tiles and bath/toilet/sink and installing a new 3pc bathroom suite, tiling the floor and part of the wall and repainting the whole area.

    The full quote is:

    Remove old suite and tiles
    Plaster all walls to make good
    fit new bath and taps
    fit new toilet and cistern
    fit new basin and taps
    fit new built in thermostatic shower
    fit new shower screen
    fit new chrome towel rail
    Fit marine plywood to floor and screw at 150mm centres with stainless screws
    Tile floor and walls around bath
    Decorate room in colour of your choice

    And the quote: £4,850!

    I live in NW London if this makes a difference. Anyone have a view as to whether this is reasonable? Thanks
