So you’ve decided to give your bathroom a makeover. Updating this busy area of your home offers many benefits, from enhancing the aesthetics of the space to improving your overall bath experience. But have you ever wondered what a typical timeline of a bathroom remodel looks like? Callen Construction discusses this topic further.
How Long Does It Take to Complete a Bathroom Remodel?
To better understand a typical bathroom remodeling timeline, you must first know how long it takes for it to be completed. The answer to this question depends on the amount of work required. A full remodel, for instance, can take anywhere from a few days to up to a month. It is a labor-intensive process, which starts with the dismantling of every existing fixture to make way for a new layout, complete with new fittings and other elements.
Over the first week or two, expect the installers to remove the debris and prepare the work zone. Initial carpentry and the installation of plumbing and electrical lines also happen during this period. The next week, the insulation and drywall are installed. The last two or so weeks will be devoted to flooring, cabinetry and tile work, as well as the installation of the fixtures and the finishing touches.
What if the bathroom remodel only involves some minor updates? Here, you skip the demolition phase. The installers also check the existing plumbing and electrical lines to see if there’s a need for them to be repaired. From there, they can start updating your old flooring, cabinetry and lighting fixtures. It can also be as simple as changing the current color palette to a new one. Given the scope of this bathroom makeover, expect the project to be completed in significantly less time.
Preparing for the Unexpected
Of course, the ideal bathroom remodeling timeline is when everything goes according to plan. While we all want that to happen, some unexpected (and even unavoidable) things can happen along the way. These include change orders, material delivery delays and structural issues that need to be addressed. These can extend a timeline further, so be prepared for these possibilities once your bathroom remodel commences.
