If you think painting a room takes some time, wait till you have to deal with bathroom remodeling. As one of the most popular ways to add value to your home, bathroom remodeling requires plenty of tearing down and installation of things ranging from surfaces to fixtures and even bathtubs. More importantly, there are a few factors that can affect how fast (or slow) your project can be completed.
Your choice of materials has a big impact on a bathroom remodeling project. This is true even if you’re switching to an option that is similar to what was previously installed. For example, switching to smaller tiles will take more time since the crew will have to place more individual pieces. The same can be said for countertops, where some materials such as granite are much more difficult to cut into custom sizes compared to, say, resin countertops.
Presence of Issues
Remodeling service experts say that unexpected issues tend to show up during extensive remodeling projects because those often require checking the bathroom’s existing plumbing, lighting, or electricals. If they find out that the existing plumbing needs to be modified or completely replaced, to accommodate your new bathtub it could easily set your project behind by a day or two.
Replacements vs Additions
Replacing or adding new features to your bathroom could be the difference between a quick project and a lengthy one, even if both options lead to the same result. For example, adding a bathtub to the bathroom takes much less time than removing an existing shower and replacing it with one.
Perhaps the biggest factor that can affect your bathroom remodeling project’s schedule is the crew. A team of certified experienced home addition specialists will be able to make changes much faster than a group of inexperienced workers or worse, a homeowner trying to DIY the project. This is why it’s highly recommended to hire reputable contractors with the right certifications if you want your project to be completed on time.
