How long does bathroom repiping take

RepipingWhen you are getting ready for a major bathroom remodel, you may have a lot of questions about how long it will take for the bathroom to be repiped. It is important to know this, because you are probably going to want to know how long it will be until you can start to use your bathroom again. This is exceptionally important, because under federal law it is against the law to rent a building to someone who does not have access to a working toilet. It is also important to know this, because you are probably going to be arranging for other contractors to come and work on the bathroom, and so you will want to be able to make sure that they can start to work when you arranged for it.

The first part of determining how long it will take to repipe a bathroom is to simply talk to your plumbers about the timeframe. They will be able to give you an idea of how many people they can have working on the bathroom at a given time, and they can also determine how much time they are able to work over the course of a given day. Generally, the plumbers will look at the amount of pipe they have to lay, the overall condition of the bathroom, and if they will have to tear out the walls. They can then give you an accurate estimate of how long it will take, and this estimate will almost always be accurate.

It is also important to talk to the plumbers about what they mean when they say that the repiping will be done. The plumbers may be able to get all of the work done inside of a given amount of time, but you may have to wait for a while for the drywall and paint to cure. This is important, because it can mean that you will have to wait for a longer amount of time before you can use your toilet and shower, and the other contractors may have to wait as well. Simply asking about the matter will allow you to have access to accurate information.
