How long will my renovation take?

In remodeling, timing can vary greatly on a project-by-project basis. Everything is custom and special because no two remodeling projects are alike. No two homes are alike, no two yards are alike, no two homeowners are alike, and supply availability is changing constantly. Your contract will list a general window we think the project will be completed in.

For those of you who are just starting to think about your remodeling project a basic guide so you have an idea of what kind of time investment you are making can be helpful.

The planning phases depend on when you are the planning process and how many steps are involved in design and town approval.  For small projects planning can happen in a matter of weeks, larger projects may take several months (if plans and town approvals like Zoning, Conservation etc…are involved)

Generally, we say that construction times:

Basic Bathroom Remodel is about 4-6 weeks.
Bathroom with Custom Tile shower/Walls and glass enclosure is closer to 6-8 weeks.
Small Deck: 2 weeks
Larger Deck: 2-4+ weeks
Kitchen: 8 – 10 week
Large Kitchen, with extensive interior remodel 2-3 months
Additions – Average 4-8 months (depending on size and scope)
Basement – 4-6 weeks
Replacement windows – 4-8 windows a day.
Siding – 2-4 week depending on material selection, size of house etc….
Custom home – 1 year

It’s always important to check with the production team for a better initial timeline range as we go thru the planning process.  And don’t forget that things like weather, material availability, timely decisions and even government shuts downs may affect completion schedules.

Remodeling can be a large undertaking. There are a lot of decisions and money that goes into your project. The Almar team hopes you’ll give us the opportunity to work with you thru the planning process.  We don’t have to let Social Distancing keep us from planning for the future and answering your questions. We look forward to guiding you thru this process.
