With projects like kitchen and bathroom remodeling, where a critical part of your home will be under construction for a period of time, the project timeline is always a concern. Having a detailed conversation with your contractor about this subject ahead of time helps to set expectations and reduce stress along the way.
Today, Northside Construction Services shares a realistic timeline for a typical kitchen remodel.
Removal of Existing Kitchen
The existing kitchen needs to be stripped completely bare before anything else can happen. This process usually takes two to three days. The demolition involves the removal of existing cabinets, countertops, flooring and appliances. If there will be changes to your exterior walls or there’s a need for home repair, this phase will take longer.
Marking Location of Electrical Outlets, Fixtures and Appliances
Your contractor needs to mark various spaces in your kitchen. This will guide them during the various installations and helps ensure that the power outlets are all in the right places. This step takes about a day to be completed.
Your contractor will spend an average of five days to set up your new plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems.
Insulation, Drywall and Flooring
At this stage of the project, your kitchen is insulated and the drywall is prepped, installed, and primed. Next, the flooring will be installed. The timeline for this part of the project will vary depending on what materials you choose.
Cabinets and Countertops Installation
This is the most exciting phase for most homeowners. With the installation of cabinets and countertops, the final look of your new kitchen begins to emerge. However, installing countertops can take a while. For instance, the fabrication process of granite countertops is usually completed in approximately 10 days.
Electrical Fixtures and Appliances Installation
This is usually the final stage of a kitchen remodel, and it takes about two days to be finished. This is when small touch-ups and fine-tuning are done.
