How long does it take to install a microwave?

Thumbtack Editors

Installing a microwave generally takes a few hours. However, you can expect the job to take longer if you need to install venting. The microwave’s location also matters. Setting it in a cubby is much simpler than mounting it to the wall or underneath a cabinet. Ask two or three local microwave installers for an estimate of how long the project could take.
