How Long Will It Take?

planning_home_improvement_project.1How far in advance do you need to start the planning process for a home improvement project? It helps to know what the time frame is for your project so you can plan for a realistic completion date.  You might have an idea about how long it’ll take, but have you considered everything involved? For example, a remodel is often more involved than picking out materials and having them installed. There’s the time to plan the layout, time for the materials to arrive and then several more weeks for the actual work to be completed.

At Choice Windows, Doors & More, we provide schedules for our jobs that take multiple days to weeks and we are diligent about staying on schedule. We call our homeowners and keep them in informed so in the event of unforeseen circumstances, they will be aware of the issue and feel confident that we will do our best to keep the job on track.

Here is a handy guide for the typical timeframes for standard home improvement projects.

We had Choice install the most beautiful second floor sunroom ever. They began the project in December and worked through the cold and wind to finish in the end of January.They were very professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail. The workmen were very pleasant to be around and always had time to listen and discuss any issues we had. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price.

This was the most professional and 100% the best price out of all the sliding door quotes I received. They were thousands less than other companies and the door is beautiful. Took them only a few hours to install and made it look beautiful. I recommended them to all my neighbors and friends already. Dont waste your time getting quotes from anyone else. Beautiful job Choice!

We used Choice to redo our master bathroom and kitchen. They did a great job with the design and installation. The crew working in our home were professional and very skilled. They didn't take any short cuts and we didn't get extra charges after the initial proposal. I would definately use them again and recommend them.
