Your Edina Whole Home Remodel Timeline

The Time It Takes To Complete An
Edina Whole Home Remodel

Discover The Factors Affecting Your
House Remodel Timeline

One of the most frequently asked questions about an Edina whole home remodel is the length of time it will take to complete. And it is an important question to ask about your remodel.

After all, having a time frame in mind helps you see the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.

There are some average timelines for how long it takes to complete a home remodel, but remember, every home and design is different, making the timeline shorter or longer.

Average Time Frames For A Whole Home Remodel

The average time for a house remodel is between three and eight months. However, that is an average, so your home could take longer or shorter depending on what you want to do inside your house.

Some of the more commonly remodeled rooms are:

  • Kitchen
  • Bathroom
  • Basement
  • Home additions

Each of these projects takes various lengths of time.

A high-end kitchen remodel in which you have a new cabinet layout, backsplash added, premium countertops, custom cabinets, flooring, and lighting added could take anywhere from nine to thirteen weeks.

Bathroom remodels that do not change the location of the tub/shower, toilet, or sink but include new flooring and other design elements may take eight to twelve weeks to complete.

Taking an unfinished basement to a finished space could take ten to fourteen months or longer, depending on what the finished space will look like when you are done.

Adding a home addition means electrical work, removing an outside wall, and other elements, which puts it at the longer end of the timeline of four to six months to complete.

The Home Remodeling Process

Having your home remodeled is more than just stating you want new flooring in the kitchen or you want a bonus room added to the side of the house. Home remodeling is a process that involves a lot of phases.

Planning The Remodel

Lots of time goes into the planning of your remodel. This time may not be included in the projected timeline of your completed remodel.

After all, the work done during this phase is more or less design plans of what you want. This plan could take a few weeks to come up with or a few months, depending on the amount of work you want to do inside your home.


Once the design plans have all been agreed upon, the pre-construction phase is filled with getting ready for the actual construction.

Materials will be ordered, any permits will be applied for, and the construction team will be put together to start as soon as these to-do items are complete. This phase can take a few weeks or even months, depending upon the complexity of your project.


This is where the work actually takes place. The timeline of your project often starts on the first day of construction. This is where the three to eight months average time comes into play.

However, remember that super complex remodels could take up to a year if you are having various parts of your home changed.

Post Renovation

During this phase, you are looking at the finished product. We will also check to ensure that nothing has gone undone and get the final approval of the finished product.

Factors That Affect Your House Renovation Timeline

The timeline of your house renovation can be affected by several factors. It is important to note what could lengthen your remodel timeline. Unfortunately, many factors that lengthen a remodel timeline are out of the homeowner’s control.

1. Lack Of Materials

Material shortages are happening everywhere, and it could be something you come up against.

If you want to avoid this factor, you may find it possible to replace some materials with others that are of the same grade but in a different style to complete the remodel.

2. Weather

Most interior remodels will not be affected by the weather. However, if you opt for a home addition, some of the work cannot take place if the weather is bad.

Unfortunately, you cannot do much when Mother Nature decides to blast the area with storms. However, we do our best to schedule renovations for days that the weather permits us to work uninterrupted.

3. Lengthy Waits For Permits

While most people do not have an issue with getting their permits within a few days, there are always those horror stories of people waiting for months to get their permits.

If you work with a professional remodeler, you will find they have a good understanding of how long it will take and will often handle the process for you. So, while it may affect your overall timeline, it is a stress you won’t handle alone.
