Homeowners often ask the question: “When should I remodel my house?” and to be honest any time is the right time as long as you are prepared. However, there are certain times of the year were doing certain jobs can save you a little money.
January Through Early March
Despite working outside in the cold, this is actually a good time to start an addition. Dry air is actually better for digging foundations and pouring concrete footers than muddy ground and humidity. If your foundation is completed and the room addition is framed before the rainy season, the space can be undercover during the unpredictable spring weather. Also, the winter months tend to not be as busy for builders, because everyone is waiting for the spring.
April Through June
This is normally the time when most builders are busy and therefore you can expect to pay a little more for time and materials. Projects like decks, patios, and outdoor rooms are good to plan for this time frame. Plus, the homeowner can enjoy their new outdoor space for the rest of the year.
July Through September
This is the best time to tackle all those indoor renovations you want to do like a bathroom remodel. Surprisingly this is also normally the time when people get a new roof put on their house since higher temps make roofing materials easier to seal. Also, if your family vacations in the summer it would be best to plan your renovation and your vacation at the same time. That way you can avoid all the inconveniences of having to live through a renovation.
October through December
This is normally the time homeowners want their projects finished since the holidays will quickly be approaching. So if you are willing to have crews in your home during the holiday season, this is a good time to schedule anything from an addition to a kitchen remodel. This is the time of year when business is slower and prices for materials and time won’t be as high.
