Why Re-Bath?

A better business model within a $400B+ industry

Re-Bath’s business systems help franchisees win market share and increase sales in a steadily growing $400B+ industry. Here is a brief look at the industry trajectory, the areas in which Re-Bath competes, and how franchisees stand out from competitors:

The Remodeling Industry

Column chart shows the steady growth of U.S. remodeling activity, from $277 billion a year in 2010 to $424 billion in 2017. Stats and projections are from the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard.

Several factors are driving the steep increase in remodeling spending:

  • Increasing home prices have encouraged owners to invest in remodeling projects.
  • Low new housing stock and high prices are leading homeowners to invest in their current homes rather than moving.
  • Older homeowners are remodeling their homes to make them more accessible. This is expected to accelerate as Baby Boomers continue to age.
  • America’s housing stock is older, with more than half of homes being built before the 1970s. As homes age, remodeling demand increases.
  • A surge in rental demand following the 2008-2011 housing crisis has led landlords to invest in improvements to rental properties.

The Competitive Landscape for Bathroom Remodeling

The bathroom remodeling industry can be categorized into four segments. We compete in three of these segments:

Tub and Shower Updates (Low-cost)

White carrera contemporary tub-shower update.The least expensive remodels ($4,000 to $9,000) involve covering or resurfacing old showers and tubs, tub to shower conversions, or replacing an old tub or shower. Re-Bath installers are able to complete a wet-area remodel in just 1-2 days. Customers love the quick turnaround, but Re-Bath owners love it even more since it means installation crews can complete multiple jobs in a single week — increasing revenue potential.

Complete Bathroom Remodels (Mid-cost)

An example of a complete bathroom remodel with a new tub and shower system, new floors, sink cabinet and fixtures.These projects generally range from $12,000 to $25,000. Homeowners in this price range are typically looking for a transformation of their entire bathroom. Re-Bath remodels are “pull and replace,” which means removing existing tubs, sinks, cabinets and toilets and installing new fixtures. The owner has the experience of a transformed bathroom, but the Re-Bath installation team is not doing heavy demolition, or redoing electrical or plumbing, so projects can be completed in 3 days.

Aging & Accessibility remodels

Aging and Accessibility Remodel example shows a walk-in tub and a shower with a very small threshold to enter and a seating area inside.About 10% of Re-Bath’s systemwide revenue comes from accessibility remodels that make bathrooms safe and comfortable for homeowners who have mobility issues. These remodels can be slightly more complex because they sometimes require additional plumbing or framing to accommodate features like walk-in-tubs and zero-barrier shower basins, but installation is still completed within five days. Demand is growing quickly in this segment. According to the Institute on Aging, 20% of Americans will be 65 or older by 2030, up from 13% in 2010.
