How Long Does a Bathroom Remodel Take?

October 6, 2017

By most standards, a bathroom remodel can take anywhere between 4-6 weeks. If everything goes according to plan, this can mean your bathroom is remodeled in the course of a month. And, of course, your goal should be to keep a timely schedule. Less time spent remodeling means you’ll sooner be able to get back into your normal life routine. However, there are many factors which go into the process of remodeling that could prolong the process. Read on to get a comprehensive idea about how long your bathroom remodel should take.

What Are Your Goals?

First of all, consider what you wish to replace. Most of the time, it’s not necessary to completely demolish your bathroom before sprucing it up. For instance, instead of completely replacing your bathtub, why not simply opt for a tub liner? A Maryland tub liner installation company can completely eliminate the need to adjust plumbing, and saves the few days it can take to replace a tub. There’s also the option of keeping your cabinets if they’re in good shape, or saving your light fixtures to avoid electrical work. The more you want to replace, the longer the remodel will take. Also, depending on the flexibility of your schedule, you should always consider what you’ll do if the remodel takes longer than originally planned.

The Cost of DIY

In today’s internet-driven world, it may seem tempting to start remodeling your bathroom on your own. Unless the task is simple and quick, such as replacing a showerhead or covering a light fixture, it’s best to work with professionals. DIY remodeling projects take longer, and can be dangerous or cost a fortune if there are any major mistakes. Professional Maryland bath remodeling services will get the job done much faster and will be as efficient as they are thorough.

More Features Means More Work

Do you have windows in the bathroom you’re looking to remodel? Are your tub and shower separate? You should take these into account when planning for the length of your bathroom remodel as each addition piece in your bathroom adds up. While replacing or fixing up one aspect of your bathroom may take a few hours; once you add up all the individual pieces it will start to get overwhelming. These kind of complications are what would make your bathroom remodeling project take at least six weeks. Always consider just how much needs to be done, and add a little extra time to prepare for any potential complications that could arise.
