Homeowners often ask “What’s the best time of year to remodel my home?” Truthfully any time is the right time, as long as you’re prepared. However, some times are better than others depending on the remodel and the cost-savings at that time. Here are a few things you should consider when determining the best time to remodel.
If your remodel involves exposure to the outside, you’ll want to consider the impact weather may have on your project. It may lengthen the time frame that you had budgeted for the remodel.
Busy Time Of Year
Bathroom projects are an excellent project for this time of year. Many general contractors will be looking to fill in their busy schedules with smaller projects. Secondary bathrooms can be completed in 3.5 to 5 weeks time, and master bathrooms will take anywhere from 5 to 10 weeks depending on the size and scope of the work. Bathroom projects can also be isolated remodel projects that do not necessarily affect day-to-day living.
Larger projects like additions, whole house remodels and Kitchens are great projects during this time of year. Schedules tend to relax a bit with school out. Many families vacation during the summer too which may allow more freedom for general contractors to get work done faster with an empty house. Plus, the family has the added benefit of not living in a construction zone throughout an entire project. Be sure to check with your general contractor before planning a trip away. Some contractors will not work while a family is on vacation, and others will have ground rules that must be followed prior to a vacation.
Kitchen and bathroom remodeling is recommended during the summer months.
Remodeling Fall Into Winter
This is traditionally the time when homeowners want their remodeling finished. So if you’re willing to have crews in your home during the holiday season, this is a good time to schedule anything from an addition to a bathroom remodel. Business might be slower for contractors during this time of year which can add to the attention a general contractor will devote to your project.
