People are impatient. I know, it’s hard to believe. In the real world, people really only want to hear what they want to hear. It is the same in the home remodeling world. It is easy to be impatient. You have a vision of what you want your home to look like. You want it done yesterday. Yes, yesterday.

Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis understands the frustration that comes with any home remodeling project. Let’s face it. This is our business and we are excellent at what we do, but this is your life, your home, your peaceful abode, even your sanctuary. So, what’s the bottom line? How long is your home remodel going to take?

What do you want to hear? Even in the best of circumstances, your home remodel will take time. So, let’s go over some expectations. Roeser Home Remodeling does not want to leave you in the dark. The dark can be scary. We believe in open, honest communication.

When it comes to a home remodel, no matter if you live in St. Louis or the surrounding areas, there is one word to keep in mind. Variables. In the home remodeling world, this word means change. There are certain things that can change and affect the timeframe of a home remodel. What are some of these variables?

Roeser Home Remodeling will tell you from our years of experience that a few of the variables stand out more than others. The three top ones are project design, budget and permitting.

Remodel Project Design-

Think about it. You know what you want and you want it yesterday. The reality of it is that once your home remodel vision is conceptualized and the design begins, you got it… There is that word again! Variables. Remodeling inventory that is in stock verses custom order materials obviously will have a different timeframe. For instance, if your home remodeling dream is custom kitchen cabinets, made to order, then it will take longer to achieve the dream.


At Roeser Home Remodel, we know that you work hard for your money. It will not be wasted and no matter how large or how small your home remodel project, value will never be compromised. With that being said, it only makes sense that a home remodel project with an estimated cost of $100,000 vs a project estimated at $400,000 will have different timeframes.


No matter where you live, and St. Louis is no exception, if you begin a home remodel project, there will be permits involved. Roeser Home Remodeling will work with you and make sure all permits are acquired in a timely fashion. The variable here is you are working with city or county government employees to obtain the necessary permits. Many times there are homeowners’ associations that will also need to give the go ahead for a home remodeling project.

Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis believes that the best way to deal with variables and complete your home remodeling project in a timely fashion is to be simple and straightforward with our clients. We are polite, professional, and accommodating to your needs as a homeowner. After all, this is your home, where you live and spend quality family time. We do not want the home remodeling project to take one minute longer than necessary.

As a homeowner there are certain steps that you can take to expedite the home remodeling process. This includes having a clear vision of what you want. Be as detailed as possible. Minimize any changes once the home remodeling project has begun. Anything that is changed once the work has started will cause a delay to the final timeframe. Insist on deadlines and weekly project updates.

Are we there yet? You won’t even need to ask. As a customer of Roeser Home Remodeling, you will already know. Your home remodeling project might not be done yesterday, but it will be completed in a timely fashion, with professional, courteous and skilled craftsmen, giving you the home remodel of your dreams…even with all of the variables!
