Residential bathrooms are built to cater to the specific needs of each household. In other words, each bathroom is unique. This is why if you’re planning to take on a bathroom remodeling project and want to know exactly how long it will take to complete, you might not get a definitive answer.
For your peace of mind, however, home remodeler Case Design/Remodeling lays out what a standard bathroom remodeling timeline might look like, listed down by tasks.
A full-scale tear out of a average-sized bathroom should take about two days, but it will take longer if the bathroom is located on the second floor. Location is crucial since it contributes to how easy or difficult moving around would be.
You can take this out of the equation if your bathroom’s underlying structure is in good shape. Otherwise, this can take two days to finish.
Sorting the plumbing on your tub and toilet can take up to two days.
Running the electrical lines shouldn’t take more than a day if you’re working with a good professional electrician.
Depending on the availability of the inspector, you can expect the home interior remodeling timeline to be delayed a day or a week.
Insulation, Drywall, Paint
Insulation can be done in half a day, but the drywall installation process can take three days to account for drying and sanding. Painting a bare bathroom takes about a day.
Again, this will depend on the availability of the inspector.
Cabinetry and Other Fixtures
Hooking up the cabinets, toilet, tub, and sink should take no more than three days.
A maximum of two days, depending on the material. Add two more days if there’s tilework.
As with all home remodels, allowance for contingencies is a must. This will bring the remodeling timeline to roughly a month.
