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.
