How Long Does Home Remodeling Take?
If you’re looking to remodel your home, buckle up. Professional home remodeling will take a lot of time and money. It all depends on the size of changes you want to make. Below we explain the timeframe for remodeling a whole home.
The discovery phase is when you interview different contractors, architects, designers, etc. This phase is where you make the discoveries on what can be remodeled and how much things will cost. This phase can take a couple of weeks to a couple of months depending on how many people you meet and the ideas you research.
The design process is when you sit down and figure out what the remodel is going to look like. This will likely change due to a variety of factors that will be discussed later, but it will take you 6-8 weeks, most likely. It depends on the size of the remodeling.
Prep and Construction
Prep involves getting the prerequisite permits and materials in place. This can take a long time depending on the jurisdiction you live in, as the permit process can range from 4 weeks to 6 months.
The construction phase also depends on size, but can take up to a year to complete for larger homes.
If you’re ready to start the process, start researching contractors to see who’s best.
