Phase 3: Installation & Completion

The Construction & Installation portion of your bathroom remodeling project

Fast forward roughly 3-12 weeks since you your orders were placed and finally it is time to get started. Bathroom projects as well as kitchen projects are two of the most complex home construction projects as they typically involve multiple trades including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, countertop installation, HVAC, tile, flooring and possibly more. (Read “The Project Begins”)

Installation can take anywhere from 1-5 weeks (or sometimes longer) depending on the scope of the project. Depending on the countertop material you choose, your countertop could add some additional time to that as well. Some countertops materials require measurement by the fabricator AFTER all the base cabinets have been installed. Once measured, it can take as little as a week to as long as 2 weeks to have the custom made top delivered and installed in your home by the fabricator. But as you will see when it goes on, it will have been worth the wait.

Mold, Damages, Bad Electrical, oh my…

It is around this time as well that something unexpected happens. It could be a damaged cabinet, mold found in the walls, outdated electrical, perhaps a wrong color or finish or possibly even something you’ve decided you wanted to add to the scope of your bathroom remodeling project after everything has been finalized.

Take a breath. We’ll assess the situation together and put together solution to keep things on your bathroom project moving forward. And if we need to create a change order to take care of things, no problem. It’s all part of the process.

Almost there…completing your bathroom remodeling project

As the installation finishes up, we will be ready to walk your new bathroom and review it with you to make sure all the details have been addressed and you are pleased with the finished space.  If you've contracted us to the do the installation, it should be nice and clean as well.

We get pretty excited about completing bathroom and kitchen projects, so don’t be surprised if we ask for your permission to have a professional photographer come out and take pictures of the finished work. Because your new bathroom looks stunning and we can’t wait to share it.

Finally, one last thing…

It's time to enjoy! It’s over and now you can truly enjoy your new bathroom and all it has to offer.

While we might have asked you for pictures once you’ve done all the decorating in your bathroom, but now is the time that the bathroom becomes yours to enjoy. We’ll be checking in as well, after 90 days and at one year, to make sure everything is going well and maybe ask you about the “other” room (hint, it’s kitchen) and considering a new remodeling project.

Any home remodeling project will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride of exciting highs and frustrating lows. A thorough understanding of what to expect combined with a strong partnership with your Reico designer and team will help you stay on the rails and bring you to the end of your remodeling journey and the beginning of your time with your new, and maybe even dream bathroom.
