In a home, most people take the necessary time to research and discuss an idea or their dream of renovating certain rooms or areas of their home. Then, once they decide, they want to move forward quickly to start the construction process “yesterday”.
If you want your remodeling project to get done on a timely basis and with winter discounts, it is important that you get on the contractor’s schedule IMMEDIATELY! Depending on the size of the job, the lead times get longer the more time you wait.
Right now, if you book in February and into early March the approximate lead time is 30 days. If you wait until April or longer, the approximate lead time could be 60 to 90 days or longer. Make the decision today to get on the list to get started. Don’t delay.
“In many places around the country, summer is the season for remodeling. It’s true that sunny days and warm weather are very beneficial when it comes to working outside, but there is much more to consider when planning a remodeling project than the temperature. In many cases, knowing when to remodel is likely to save you money as well as time during your project. While spring and summer might be the most popular seasons for home improvement, the best time to remodel is when your hassle (and budget) will be at a minimum.
The battle between supply and demand is constant, and is one of the main factors in how much we pay for just about everything. Just as Halloween decorations are a steal on Nov. 1st, the price of building materials like paint, lumber and cement fluctuates depending on the time of year and the demand for that particular material. The best time to remodel is not always when the price of these materials is at their lowest, but by planning your project well in advance, you may be able to accrue materials when they are at their cheapest and simply store them until you are ready to begin working on your home. 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,” suggests HomeAdvisor!
Angie’s List states that “some times are better than others for different phases of jobs, as well as for cost-savings — although the two don’t necessarily coincide. With that in mind, we can offer suggestions about the “ideal” guidelines to help keep your remodeling project on track from a cost and timing standpoint.
Based on our experience in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., where there is a notable change of seasons, the ideal time for work outside is fall or spring. Of course, that window of time when the weather is dry and between 60 and 70 degrees is very small, so if we want to work year-round, we need to look at other timing advantages.
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.
If your foundation is completed and the room addition is framed before the rainy season, the space can be under cover during the unpredictable spring weather. You’ll likely have fewer “rain days” where no one works on the construction site. In addition, the winter months tend to be less busy for builders, because everyone is waiting for spring and tax refunds to start their home projects”.
It is highly recommended that you select and interview a qualified and experienced contractor to get the job done correctly.
