Every job is different.

Residential baths are 2-4 weeks all depends on how deep you go in.

Re: Time Line


As an example the last bathroom I did was 15 days. That was a 50sqft on-suite, demo, with wedi fundo shower system 5x3 with wall seat, new sub floors + leveling, ditra, adjust toilet plumbing, adjust shower feeds, tile shower area, tile floors, vanity, granite top, all fixtures, install toilet, new extractor fan, baseboards, window casing, re plaster, plumb in sink and toilet.

This was on me own though. But you can never base your price on any off our figures. The tile type and layout alone could add another 3 days to the job and I had 2 days in making walls and floors good. No 2 bathrooms are ever the same in remodeling. In new construction I could have done that same bathroom in 10 days instead of 15. It's something your gonna have to figure out as you do more of them.

Re: Time Line


Another point to ponder as well.... Really small bathrooms can take much longer. Did a 50sf bathroom last Dec. that took 2 weeks. Nothing fancy or extravagant, just wasn't enough room in there to even think. No room for assorted tools, staging, etc.

Like many have said.... every bath has its own challenges. Everything has to be considered. Even something as simple as how close it is to the entry door you will be using for bringing in product and tools and using to remove debris.

Unfortunately there really isn't a one size fits all answer to your question.
