A full remodel of a small bathroom can take about a month, assuming all crew members are present for each workday, all materials are on hand and you don’t issue any change orders. In today’s post, the home interior remodeling pros of Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling Birmingham review the typical timeline for a bathroom remodeling project.
A full remodel starts with a demolition job, which can take several days to finish. Factors like the bathroom being located on an upper floor or challenges moving materials out can add to the timeline. During this part of the project, carpentry may be required if the underlying structure is not in good shape.
In this phase of the bathroom remodeling project, the pros may move the tub and toilet and run the electrical lines. Barring any problems, these tasks may take a day or two to finish.
Insulation and Drywall Installation
The installation of drywall and insulation typically take up to a week. Once the insulation is up, the contractor can hang the drywall, which may require a few days of work. This part of the project involves applying joint compound, letting it dry and sanding–which will need be repeated until the desired look is achieved. Afterward, the contractor can paint the area.
Tilework, Cabinetry and Flooring
The timeline for installing these important bathroom components will vary depending on several factors. For example, tilework involves applying and drying the installed pieces, a process that typically takes at least two or three days. Any contingencies that arise will also affect the timeline. As long as you are prepared from the start, you can navigate a bathroom or kitchen remodeling project with ease.
