The bathroom might be a relatively small room, but upgrading it requires a whole lot of work. It can take weeks, especially when accounting change orders or anything that can delay the progress of the project. In today’s post, the bath and kitchen remodeling pros of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greater Grand Rapids discuss the typical timeline of a bathroom remodeling project.
Demolition and Rough-Ins
These take place during the first week of the bathroom remodeling project. Taking down everything inside the room can take up to two days depending on the difficulty the pros may encounter when moving out the materials. Rough carpentry takes another two days, but may not be required if the underlying structure is in good shape. Plumbing and electrical rough-ins can take a day or two. The pros will then inspect the area before proceeding to the second week.
Insulation, Drywall and Painting
Since only one or two short walls are involved, bath remodeling pros can complete insulation installation within half a day. The remaining time can then be used to hang the drywall. Finishing it, however, requires two days. Within the timeframe, the joint compound is applied, let dry and sanded repeatedly. The bathroom, in its bare state, is now ready to be painted. Another inspection is done and the last part of the project goes underway.
Fixture Installations and Completion
The third week is the most crucial in the remodeling timeline, that is if everything goes smoothly in the first two weeks. Tilework, while optional, will need at least two days to complete. Like putting up drywall, it involves applying and drying that takes time. Once set, the next few days will be allotted for cabinets and flooring and then for the toilet, sink and electrical component hookups.
