Is it Time to Update Your Commercial Bathroom Space?


Even when an older commercial bathroom has been cleaned, it still has a way of appearing dull and dirty. Even worse, they can have your customers or employees feeling disgusted. Overtime there are many small fixes that can be addressed to help the appearance of an older commercial restroom, fixing stall doors or adding fresh paint. But if your bathroom is a decade old and suffering from cracked tiles, poor plumbing, dim lights, and stained fixtures, it’s probably time for a remodel.

A remodel is the best way to keep your commercial property looking and feeling new and desirable. Nothing really says “older building” like a rundown restroom facility. There are many reasons why an upgrade is beneficial.

For starters, consider ADA compliance. Older buildings tend to not meet code and it is important for your reputation to remain compliant with the rules and regulations of the ADA. A professional remodeler and builder knows what the codes are and how to meet them while sticking to your remodeling plan.

Increased property value is another benefit to remodeling a commercial bathroom space. Much like residential remodeling, an updated restroom will add a significant amount of value to the property, and has a very good return on investment, more than 75%.

Over the years there have been vast improvements in energy efficiency and water saving techniques for bathroom fixtures. There are now faucets that turn themselves off, low flow toilets, and many options designed to save our natural resources while saving us money. Commercial projects are often intimidating due to the size and scope, which usually mean a large up-front cost, but the savings incurred from installing energy efficient fixtures is clear.

Sanitation is another great reason to make upgrades. In any newly remodeled commercial bathroom, you’ll find you hardly have to touch anything. From the paper towel dispensers, air dryers, lights, and faucets, the touch-less systems make the spread of germs a non-issue. This is important for employees and guests alike as the spread of germs around the office means more sick days. Customers could also become ill so it’s vital to have the best facilities during flu season and always.

Northstar did a great job at a commercial building I own. He soundproofed a large 3 car commercial garage and took care of some draining issues, by installing a 15’ drain and diverting the water away from the building. His estimate was very fair and he completed the work on time. I would recommend him highly .
