How long does a kitchen renovation take?

There is no exact timeframe for the completion of a kitchen renovation, as several factors play a role in determining how long the project will take. From the moment you decide on materials, you should plan for the completion date to be several weeks in the future. This is especially true if you are installing custom cabinets, as they usually require about eight to ten weeks to build. The extent of the renovation, as well as the availability of the materials you choose and the current workload of your contractor, will all play a role in how long the project will require for completion. Once all the materials are ready, and demolition is done, our kitchen remodeling company in Los Alamitos, CA can usually complete the installation process in a few weeks.
