How Long Does It Take To Repipe A Bathroom?
Repiping a bathroom is not for the faint of heart. It can take anywhere from one to three days depending on the size of the bathroom and if any other plumbing issues are uncovered in the structure.
For any bathroom, the first thing that has to be done is the bathroom has to be demolished. All of the drywall has to be removed so that the plumber can get at the plumbing. To save time and money, all fixtures such as tub, sinks, showers and cabinetry should be removed. The easier it is for the plumber to gain access to the plumbing the less out of pocket expense it will be for you.
Assuming that you are using a contractor, the first thing that happens is the demolition. This usually takes one day. The plumber is the next one in and he or she will need one to three days to complete the repiping. New drywall has to be hung and taped. While that is setting the floor has to be laid. After the floor is laid, grouted and sealed, the fixtures go in. The tub and shower get placed as well as cabinets, sinks and lighting.
Once all of this is done, then the fun begins. This is where you make your bathroom your own with your own style and flair. Your color scheme goes in by painting and tiling. Once that is done then it’s time to decorate and accessorize. This is done with towels, flowers, soaps, sponges, sea shells and jars for cotton balls or Q-tips. It’s whatever you decide on to make it yours.
When the job is finished you’ll know that your bathroom plumbing is up to code and is safe and free of leaks. This should translate into the rest of your home. Your plumber will be able to detect problems in other areas of the house from what he finds in the bathroom. You’ll have a beautiful new bathroom and start to finish in about a week.
