Homeowners often ask, “What is the best time of the year to remodel my home?” The answer is anytime in the year. However, some times are better than others for different phases of jobs. With that in mind, we can have the “ideal” guidelines to help keep your remodeling project on track from the timing standpoint.
1. January to March Remodeling: Winter is an excellent time to start an addition. Frozen ground and dry air are better for digging foundations and pouring concrete footers than muddy ground and humidity. Moreover, the winter months tend to be less busy for builders because everyone is waiting for spring and tax refunds to start their home projects.
2. April to June Remodeling: Spring is traditionally home building season. Projects like decks, patios, and outdoor rooms are good to plan for this timeframe. Decks require hand-digging, and the ground is usually softer in the spring.
3. July to September Remodeling: Tackling indoor work like kitchen or bathroom remodeling is recommended during the summer months. The last thing you want to do in the sweltering heat is an attic bedroom! To most people’s surprise, roofing projects are often done in the summer, because the roofing material needs certain higher temperatures to seal.
4. October to December Remodeling: This is an excellent time to schedule anything from an addiction to a kitchen remodel. It is holiday time, and business tends to be slower for builders.
Wet weather is the least desirable for any remodeling. Interior work can take place any time once the building is undercover. However, specific projects may require pre-planning, which might be time-consuming. Timing of any project is definitely a crucial factor for its successful completion. So it is always better to have the remodeling planned and schedule it accordingly. By planning at the right time, you can save money and get the best job done.
