24 Mar Remodel Timeline, how long will my remodel take?
During any meeting with a prospective client, it never fails that we will always get this one question? How long will my remodel take? This is a simple question, however the answer isn’t quite so simple. There are many factors that play into answering this question about your remodel timeline. Number one being the amount of work and type of remodel that will be taking place. At H2H we have categorized our remodels into 3 categories:
- R + R Remodel (Remove and Replace)
- Standard Remodel
- Extensive Remodel
A R + R Remodel is exactly as it sounds. With this type of remodel we are just removing and replacing items within the space for a more updated look. Appliances, plumbing and electrical should be staying where it originally was. There are no layout changes to be made so this does make for a shorter timeline for this type of a remodel. Our estimate for a R + R remodel averages 3-4 months from the beginning all the way to the end. Design and estimating take about 2-4 weeks, this includes material selection, estimating and generating floor plans. Construction should take typically about 2-3 months.
A standard remodel consists of a complete redesign of the space. This would typically consist of moving walls, plumbing or electrical to better suit your needs within the space. Since this is a little more work then your traditional R+R Remodel the timeline for this project falls somewhere between 4-7 month depending on the scope of the project. Designing, planning and estimating should take about 4-8 weeks and construction takes about 3-5 months.
Lastly, is the extensive remodel, and that consists of an entire home remodel or addition. The design and planning phase is crucial when it comes to these larger projects. The timeline for this phase is roughly 2-4 months and the construction takes approximately 4-8 months, this is again dependent on the size of the project.
These are the typical timelines we like to give all of our prospective clients for their projects. This is all dependent on meetings and how quickly decisions can be made, but this is a good general timeline for various remodels. Who knew such a simple question would have such a long answer?
