How Long Will It Take?

planning_home_improvement_project.1How far in advance do you need to start the planning process for a home improvement project? It helps to know what the time frame is for your project so you can plan for a realistic completion date.  You might have an idea about how long it’ll take, but have you considered everything involved? For example, a remodel is often more involved than picking out materials and having them installed. There’s the time to plan the layout, time for the materials to arrive and then several more weeks for the actual work to be completed.

At Choice Home Remodeling, we provide schedules for our jobs that take multiple days to weeks and we are diligent about staying on schedule. We call our homeowners and keep them in informed so in the event of unforeseen circumstances, they will be aware of the issue and feel confident that we will do our best to keep the job on track.

Here is a handy guide for the typical timeframes for standard home improvement projects.

I would give Choice 10 stars if I could. The folks at Choice Home Remodeling have replaced all 31 of the windows in our house over the past year. They are incredibly professional and deliver an outstanding final product. The replacement windows look better than the originals and I get compliments on them all the time! The inside temperature of the inside glass on a 55 degree day has improved by 8 degrees! I am looking forward to seeing what the differential is once the weather turns cold. Their pricing is fair and the quality is second to none. I recommend them 1000%.
We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
