After asking what it costs, the number one question we get from clients looking to upgrade is: “how long does a bathroom renovation take?” The answer: 8 weeks.
We’re upfront with our clients about cost and about timeline. We may be a little bit more expensive and take a few weeks longer than the contractor you find on Craigslist, but it’s because we’re better and our finished product is of the highest quality.
Ten years ago, it took four weeks to complete a bathroom from start finish. And with the growing popularity of shows on HGTV and DIY Network, some people think a bathroom renovation can be done in a matter of days, if not hours. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Today, a bathroom renovation takes eight weeks from design through completion.
The good news—the economy is booming. People have money for construction projects and home renovations. The bad news–that slows down the permitting process in cities and towns. What used to take a couple hours now may take days or weeks. Once the permits approved, the work can begin. A typical bathroom renovation may require up to a half dozen subcontractors—a plumber, electrician, carpenter, tiler, painter, HVAC installer. Again, with a booming economy they are busy and often booked weeks in advance. And finally, once the work is complete it may take another couple days, or weeks, for the inspector to visit the site for the final stamp of approval.
