Are you getting ready to start a bathroom remodeling project in your home? This is a process that can bring on a lot of anxiety and disruption in your home. Not because you don’t want it done. It is because there are times your bathroom will be out of commission. So, it is a good idea to discuss a timeline with the general contractor who is doing the job for you. In this article, we will discuss how long it takes to remodel a bathroom.

Planning 

If you have your mindset and have been thinking about your bathroom remodel for a while, it may not take you very long to plan out the project. It is a matter of talking with a general contractor and getting them informed about all the changes you want to make. 

This is the point where you will make a list of all the changes you are making so they can order all the necessary materials, products, and more. Sometimes the ordering process can take a little bit of time, from a few days to weeks. 

Demolition

Demolition is not a very time-consuming process when it comes to a bathroom. You want to make sure you have all your personal items removed from this space before it begins. The demolition can be done in a day or two of work. 

Most of the time, people will begin the work before the general contractor comes to do the more involved work. If you don’t want to do any of this process yourself, it is fine to leave it for the professionals, and it is probably the smarter decision to make. Every situation is different, and there are times it may take a third day or so, depending on the exact scenario.

Flooring

The size of the space you’re installing the flooring in will determine the exact amount of time it will take to put in new flooring. In most cases, this is a few hours’ worth of work. If it is tile flooring, you can expect it to take a day’s work or two. That is due to the amount of time you have to allow for setting and drying. 

Installation

Installations are something that will vary depending on what is being installed. If you are installing all new items or moving them into new spaces than before, it can take some time to get it completed. Such as a shower, it can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week’s time to fully complete the project. 

Items such as toilets and sinks can be done much faster. The vanity will depend on whether it is a manufactured item or one that is being custom-built. 

Plus Other Work Needed

All in all, the amount of time will vary is the final answer. You can expect a full remodel project to take a few weeks. This is from the very start to the end of the project. You will want to factor in additional time for any problems that arise or delays in shipping that might occur for items. In the end, it will be well worth the wait.
