Spring and summer months are notably the best months for home improvements and renovations mainly for weather and the schedules of homeowners. The warmer weather allows better working conditions for contractors especially for outdoor work. Also, construction projects may be less of a hassle in summer for families since time can be spent outdoors and they are not confined to indoor living space as they are in winter months. Families can barbecue and use decks and patios for having meals. Many families take summer vacations allowing contractors to work in an empty house to tackle projects without disrupting a family’s routine. Ok, so spring and summer is typically the best time for obvious reasons, but is it right for you?
Remodeling projects that are not high priority can be done in the fall and sometimes winter months for a savings. Some indoor projects that don’t require major disruptions , unlike kitchens and bathrooms, are usually not high priority and can wait until the better time. Fall and winter may actually be the best time for your project since contractors’ schedules free up and estimates may reflect more flexibility.
HomeAdvisor relates doing a home project in summer as going to a restaurant during the lunch or dinner rush. “Just as your sandwich is more likely to come without the extra pickles you ordered during a restaurant’s busiest hours, your contractor is more likely to make mistakes when he or she is juggling several other, similar jobs. Additionally, when every contractor within a 6 mile radius is putting in orders for hardwood flooring or replacement windows, there’s a greater chance that orders will get delayed or mixed up, causing everyone involved a little more aggravation!”
The best time for remodeling projects is when the time is better for these reasons:
