A bathroom remodeling project is an exciting endeavor to tackle. Even so, it is like venturing into the unknown, where your best-laid plans may not follow a predetermined schedule. Indeed, there are a lot of variables that come into play here. Knowing what this project will involve will help you set expectations on the whole process.
The Required Materials
Changing the look and function of your bathroom depends on the extent of what needs to be done. Renovating it, for instance, would involve changes limited to the cosmetic variety. In other words, it won’t involve tearing down walls or relocating pipes. Work is limited to replacing outdated tile flooring or worn-out vanity. In this case, most fixtures can arrive at your home within a short timeframe.
The Need for Permits
A full bathroom remodel, meanwhile, is more extensive than a makeover in that on-site work and paperwork are often involved. A whole home remodel contractor working on this project would have to acquire the necessary permits before the project can proceed. This would mean local inspectors will visit your home. Longer waiting times are also to be expected before the pros can start the actual work.
The Length of Time Needed Before Completion
In a perfect situation, either a renovation or a full remodel will follow the exact timeline toward completion. The former can take between three to five days while the latter can take upwards of 20 days or more days. These are assuming that no work was done on weekends, no professional got sick, no materials came in late and no change orders were issued by you. Take note, however, that reality rarely cooperates with plans.
