Timing Is Everything

The timing of your remodel is important.

If you’re going on a vacation in the next month, you might prefer to wait but we have many of our clients choose to leave us with their keys and be at ease!

Being out of town for the demo and loud work is way more fun than working in the next room!

With some sort of school schedule starting soon, the San Diego summer has come to a close.

Part of getting ready for school is scheduling breaks, trips, and remodels for the rest of the year to plan for holidays. We are hear to take care of your kitchen or bathroom remodel! Call 858-775-7628 today!

Material Lead Time

The most important thing to know about kitchen remodels for the fall of 2020 is that lead-times on raw materials are still longer than usual due to COVID-19. 

Windows have been taking 3 to 4 weeks longer to arrive than usual. Since many window manufacturing facilities are closed, fewer facilities now carry the burden of producing windows for the whole country.

There has been a dramatic improvement since the initial delays in March and April but most materials have still been slowed by a week or two.

Timeline of Kitchen or Bathroom Remodels

For fall/winter remodels, here are a few things to consider:

Lead time on material is beyond our control, so of course these estimates are really really approximate.

Small to medium size kitchen remodels, 10x10 kitchens, 10x12 kitchens, 12x15 kitchens, etc:. plan on your windows and your cabinets taking the longest. Cabinet lead time is anywhere from 2 to 10 weeks depending on the manufacturer you choose and the quality of finish you are willing to invest in. 

It is common to collaborate with your contractor for two to four weeks to make sure everything is ready to order. Once ordered, you'll wait two weeks for the plumbing to come in, and then get started.

From the start to the finish your remodel may take three or four months. The demolition to finishing touches portion of that for months may only be 6 to 10 weeks.

Small and medium size kitchens in San Diego or one of the most common remodels we see. But remember, the square footage of your kitchen does not determine the price and the square footage does not determine the number of decisions that need to be made.

You may have all the decisions for your small kitchen It would also need to be made for a much larger space because each element is still present, just in smaller proportion.
