A kitchen remodel can vary from kitchen to kitchen. The depth of scope will all be different depending on the project. So how long should an average remodel take? If you’re going the route alone, it may take a bit longer than if a professional were to do it. And if a professional we’re to do it, I’d be wary if they said they could have it completed in a very short time. You see, the quality of the outcome could very well rest on the time it takes! Heres our take:
Remodel on your own vs. hiring a professional
There are pros and cons to both sides. You see, remodeling on your own can help you save money. But take that with a grain of salt. Mistakes could cost you that money you would have spent by hiring a professional. If you are remodeling on your own, set a plan and ask questions along the way – you’ll sure learn a lot in the process! On the flip side, yes, hiring a professional will cost you – but it may also save you from those costly mistakes. Most professionals have the knowledge to tackle any situation- just do your research and find a remodeler with a good reputation. All in all, a remodel on your own will take longer, but hiring a professional may save you time in the long run.
The average time it takes
A standard kitchen remodel with a full gut can take anywhere from 8-12 weeks (via professionals) from demolition to completion. Each element in the project has a special time and place in the remodel timeline. For instance, demolition happens in the very beginning and it might take 1-3 days to complete. Electrical, plumbing and roughs might be 1-2 weeks.
