Why Summer Is The Best Time For Remodels

Summer is coming up faster than one might think! If you have been considering a home renovation project, now is the right time to get the ball rolling. Delaying your home renovation projects any longer could mean your home is going to be a construction zone while the holidays are approaching.

 

There are plenty of pros and cons to beginning any renovation project. However, here are a couple of reasons why you should start your home renovation project sooner rather than later:

 

  • Contractor Availability
    Contractors are typically unavailable during the fall because homeowners are returning from summer vacation and getting their homes ready for the holidays. If you can catch a contractor during their off-season, you can get the job done more quickly and maybe even get a discounted rate.
  • Summer Break From School
    With kids out of school, you can take a family trip during the renovation to skip some of the hassle and the headaches. Home renovations are by far easier and safer without kids running around the heavy machinery and tools. Once all of the plans for your project have been made, feel free to take a trip and rest easy!
  • Less Rain, More Sun
    Spring showers bring May flowers! During the summer months, there are more hours of daylight, so workers can stay later in the day meaning the duration of the project will be much shorter.
  • More time to enjoy outdoor activities
    If your renovation project includes an outdoor living area, getting this done as a first step can allow you to get use out of your new oasis right away this summer. There’s nothing worse than getting your new deck done just in time for freezing weather.
  • Have a holiday-friendly kitchen
    The last thing you want during the holidays is a torn up kitchen. Even the smallest upgrades such as a new coat of paint, updated cabinets, and new appliances can drastically improve the look of your kitchen! Kitchen remodels usually take the most time and are the most expensive, so know exactly what you want and a timeline as to when you want it done.
  • Time to settle in
    You’ll need some time to get your home in order after a renovation. It’s best to start your renovation now so you won’t be scrambling to settle back into your home with the new school year and holidays coming up.
