Throughout the year your home goes through its own “growing pains”. Whether your home is aging and could use updating of its finishes and layout of the home, or the systems in your home could use a greener makeover, summertime is the best time to take on remodeling projects.
Here are a few reasons why summertime can help you get those long needed remodeling projects done and maybe the least stressful time of year, too!
- Convenient remodeling is possible: While it may seem like a contradiction, it is possible to remodel your home with convenience when taking on projects in the summer. If you are hiring a contractor, consider having them work on projects while you are on summer vacation with your family. This will enable your family to enjoy time away from the home while it is overcrowded full with contractors. Choose a contractor you trust, or ask a friend or trusted neighbor to watch over your home as work is being done. The warmer months are also easier for contractors to work later hours and possibly have your remodeling project done sooner as compared to the winter months.

- Cost savings in the summer: Whether you are deciding to perform house renovation projects on your own or hiring a professional, most supplies and laborers are cheaper in the summer months. Materials are usually in abundance at lumber yards and home improvement stores in anticipation of the busy “DIY months”. In addition to saving costs on materials and labor, the cost to have your home exposed to the elements during the summer will cost you less in energy spending than in the cold winter months. Determine what remodeling projects will be best tackled now, and leave small indoor projects to the colder months if you need to phase them.
