One of the biggest concerns that clients have when renovating their bathroom is how long it will take (especially if it’s their only bathroom!). A bathroom installation can be a time-consuming task, but the amount of downtime can be minimised with quality up-front planning. So, just how long does a bathroom installation take?
The Duration of a Bathroom Installation
The duration of a bathroom installation can vary greatly depending on a range of factors, including the complexity of the project, the size of the bathroom, and the availability of materials.
Generally, a full bathroom installation with all the necessary fixtures and fittings can take anywhere from one to four weeks.
Factors That Can Impact the Duration of a Bathroom Installation
There are a multitude of factors that can impact the amount of time required to complete the project. The following are some of the most common factors that can affect the duration of a bathroom installation.
The Complexity of the Project
The complexity of the project is one of the main factors that can affect the duration of a bathroom installation. For a simple installation, such as a new toilet or shower, the duration will be relatively short – a day or less). However, if the installation includes more complex elements, such as a new bathtub or a full bathroom renovation, then the duration of the installation will be longer.
Size of the Bathroom
For smaller bathrooms, the installation is usually shorter as there are fewer elements to install. However, for larger bathrooms, the installation generally takes longer as there are more fixtures and fittings to install.
Availability of Materials
If the materials are readily available, then the installation should take less time. However, if materials are not readily available, then the duration of the installation may be longer. This is why it’s important to plan ahead; so that materials can be ordered and received before the renovation begins.
Accessibility of the Bathroom
The accessibility of the bathroom can also have an impact on the duration of the installation. If the bathroom is easily accessible, then the installation should take less time as it will be easier to move equipment and materials. However, if the bathroom is hard to access, then the installation may take longer.
Quality of Workmanship
You might think that poor-quality work takes less time: however, high-quality work actually takes less time overall, as the work will be done more efficiently and effectively. If the workmanship is poor, extra time will also need to be spent rectifying issues and redoing work to ensure a high-quality result – and often using another contractor, which only adds to the time (and cost) blowouts,
