Bathroom Remodels During The Holidays

We're closing in on the month of November and you've got a few things on your mind! These concerns may include school schedules, work deadlines, holidays, how to navigate family gatherings, and now you're realizing you can't keep putting off your bathroom remodel!

Don't worry, we've got your back. We've been stressed out before with a lot of legitimate work to do, and stuck in the martyr narrative of "everyone else first, I can't afford to take the time or money to do this remodel". We get it and we're here to help. 

The reality is that bathroom remodels can be put off for up to five or ten years but if you wait too long, you may be at risk of leaks, both plumbing or faulty waterproofing. If there are leaks, then you'll have dry rot or worse and much more pain long term.

Check out these three tips to help you get through your holiday bathroom remodel!

  1. Understand the holiday bathroom remodel timeline
  2. Understand the materials delivery protocols
  3. Understand the dust and dirt before you schedule gatherings

Understand The Holiday Remodel Timeline

For the 2020 Holiday schedule, here is what you need to know:

The following holidays are not business days, so manufacturers, venders, and suppliers will be closed.

  1. Thanksgiving - November 26th
  2. Black Friday - November 27th
  3. Christmas Eve - Thursday, December 24th 
  4. Christmas Day - Friday, December 25th
  5. News Years Eve - Thursday, December 31st
  6. New Years Day - Friday, January 1st

Hopefully this list helps, because it will affect production in two ways. There are six fewer business days in this next season, so we loose one week there.

But, momentum matters and three of six weeks are three day work weeks instead of five day work weeks.

Therefore momentum will be negatively affected for all the players on the team. This is beautiful and necessary for enjoying the holidays and our families.

Ensure you take this into account and add another two+ weeks to your project schedule if it stratals the holiday season.

Understand The Materials Delivery Protocols

Materials are in stock in some cases, but are back ordered in other cases.

The goal is to keep the project going once it is started. When we can wait until we have all products on hand before starting, we will have a great time getting your project complted on time with no breaks. 

The thing to be on the lookout for is when a contractor wants to get started ASAP, then play it by! This will not end well. 

At Teknik, we ensure that we are checking on product availability before a contract has even been signed so that we can pivot if we need to and select a similar product/material that will be available and allow the project to move forward. 

Once we have everything we need for the first 50% of construction, we will begin demolition, so that the phases play out in smooth succession.

Understand The Dust Before You Schedule Parties

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? 

Let's go with the bad news first.

The bad news is that your holiday season will be affected by your remodel and there is nothing you can do about it. Your contractor will impact the cleanliness and schedule but he doesn't have 100% control over it so schedule parties at your own risk.

Now for the good news.

The good news is that Teknik teams will do the following to keep your home clean during construction:

  1. Mask off the construction area whenever possible
  2. Cover and mask or move furniture as needed
  3. Cover the floor with ram paper
  4. Run an air scrubber during demolition
  5. Run a HEPA filter
  6. Maintain a broom clean work area every day

With these practices in place, we end up with "the crew was so clean!" in most of our reviews. But don't take our word for it. Check out our reviews at
