Approximate cost to replace 3ft X 5ft tile shower???

I'm in Oklahoma City and would like to know the approximate cost to tear out & replace a 48 year old 3ft X 5ft tile shower.

What would be an approximate cost to tear out an existing 3ft X 5ft concrete behind tile shower & tile pan (about 48 year old shower). Approx labor cost

What would be the cost to build a tile shower pan & tile shower stall 3ft X 5ft. Approx labor & approx cost of normal tile using cement board backing going all the way up to 8 ft ceiling height

I am the one who will be doing it.

I have done them before for myself in several houses I have had. But that was for myself so I had no labor cost and did not keep track of the supply cost either. It cost what it cost.

Have a friend who wants me to do theirs that I have done some work for them before.

Don't know what to charge for labor

I am thinking that an estimate would be around $2,500 for a tear out & redo shower 3ft X 5ft tile shower pan & tile all the way to ceiling.

It would help to know apporximate cost for each step of the process so I can have a better feel for an estimate to tell them. I am very picky and do excellent work. I also have my own tile saw and all tools already. So not a newbe at this. Just have not done it for hire for someone else.

Shower is also in master bath on the 2nd story.

Where am I in the ballpark?

What would be an average price?

What would be to high of a price and to low of a price with mid grade tile?

Thank you for your help

Hello STV...you got a name?

Typically, and at the HD I work at, we charge around $4 sqft to remove old wall tile and another $4-6 to install it over cement board.

Shower pans are custom work, and cost a bit more...not sure of the $ amount.

You are about right on the estimate of $2500 for the job.

Tile itself ranges anywhere from .68sqft and up. A decent mid grade tile will be about $2-4 sqft.

Hi Steve!

I work at the Home Depot in Moore on Wednesdays and weekends. Right off of I-35.

Too get a accurate price, a estimate would have to be done at a cost of $35, but we do have a book with the labor costs in it.

There are so many variables that it's impossible to tell you how to price something. I can tell you this, I live in Tempe, AZ. If I walked into a house and saw a 3x5 shower stall that I was pulling everything out of, down to the studs, and rebuilding, including a new pan; I would charge something like this:

Approx 120 sqft.
$250 Demo and Hauling
$350 Sheet walls with Durock
$100 Waterproof membrane under pan and approx 10" up wall
$300 Set 4" curb and pour sandmix bed with new strainer
$1200 Tile and Labor (allows $3-4/ft budget for tile)

So, total project $2200. But that's just me right here right now. I can't guess about the economy of OK.
