The Best Time of Year for Remodeling Projects
For remodeling projects, each time of year has its advantages. January through March is a good time to start a project. Builders are less busy, and frozen ground is preferable to mud and humidity for some tasks. April through June seems ideal, but this is the busy season, meaning you’ll pay more for a builder’s services. The heat of July through September is a good time or indoor work, but also for roofing, which requires warm temperatures for sealing. Last, the year’s final months are typically when people want projects completed. If you don’t mind workers in your home during the holidays, you may pay lower prices then.
- Spring is the busiest time of year for builders, so their services become more expensive.
- Summer is a good time for indoor projects and for roofing, which requires higher temps for sealing.
- If you don’t mind having workers in your house during the holidays, you can schedule your re-model for the final months of the year.
“Despite the thought of working outside in the cold winter months, this is actually a good time to start an addition. Frozen ground and dry air are better for digging foundations and pouring concrete footers than muddy ground and humidity.”
