Shaun Pohlman of Pohlm Brothers Remodeling works installs tile for a bathroom project in a Crystal Lake home on Thursday, April 23, 2015. For a bathroom remodel, a homeowner can expect to recoup about 70 percent of the cost upon resale, while a major kitchen remodel could return 67.8 percent of the cost, according to the Remodeling 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, which compares the average cost of 36 types of remodeling projects with the value retained at resale in 102 U.S. markets.
