This is a do-it-yourself site...not a place to find a contractor/handyman, but if you'd like to learn how to replace the toilets yourself and have questions, ask away...

I also agree that this is DIY site. May I say that when you talk to whomever about doing this job--do ask, and tell them you want to see, their business license and proof of insurance. You will only be protecting yourself. David

How do you tell if you need a 10 inch or 12 inch flange for toilet, must bowl be removed first?

To tell if you have a 10" or 12" "rough in" toilet, measure from the wall behind the toilet to where the toilet trap goes through the floor. You can usually look at the side of the toilet and see where it exits or just measure to the hold down bolts...that will be the center of the flange.

If your bathrooms are not extra-small, you probably have 12" rough-in toilets.
