Time for Bathroom Remodeling

Posted on June 13, 2019

One of the most common questions people have about bathroom remodeling is usually “How long will it take?” It’s easy to understand why this is a concern — of course you will want to know how long before you get your new bathroom and when your life will be back to its normal comfortable routine. The answer depends on what you are having done. Below you will find common bathroom remodeling tasks and how long they normally take. Take note that the following is the best case scenario wherein delays, bad conditions, and planning time, are not accounted for.


You will want to give this at least 2 days. It might need more time if the bathroom is on a high floor. It will help if materials can be easily removed from the area.

Basic plumbing

This will take one or two days. If you are adding a new toilet, shower, or tub then it may take 3 days.

Basic carpentry

This will only be needed if the foundation or internal structure is in need of repairs. You’ll need 1 or 2 days if it does.

Electrical wiring

So long as you find a professional electrician then all you will need is one day.


This is quick and easy work that is accomplished in a few hours.

Hang drywall

This task will need one day and is done right after the insulation.

Finishing drywall

You may need 2 days to place joint compound, drying time, and sanding it afterwards. This process is sometimes repeated.


Expect this to last 2 or 3 days. This takes time because, like the drywall, the process may need to be repeated.


This will depend on what kind of material you have for flooring. Some are easy to install and will only take a day while others are more difficult and can take up to 3 or 4 days.


This can usually take the whole day at most.


Things like attaching the showerhead, the toilet, the tub, etc. can be accomplished within the day.


You will want to give up to 2 days for finishing up and ensuring everything is in order.
