It goes without saying that timing is everything. But does that also apply to home remodeling? In some cases, yes. Generally speaking, summer is usually the best time to remodel your home. Long days full of sunshine make it easier to finish projects on time. However, there are also certain times of the year when particular remodeling projects can actually save you time and money.
Planning and flexibility are key when it comes to remodeling your home. If you can plan early and are flexible with your build time the process will run more smoothly, as two important factors in determining the best time to remodel are the supply (and demand) for the products you need and your contractor’s availability. Working ahead with Country Creek Builders we can plan around heavy load times and order materials in advance so there are no hang ups when we are ready to get to it.
While most projects can be done nearly any time throughout the year, here are a few of our favorites and the best time to work on them with regards to cost and availability.
Window replacements are often done in the summer, so spring is the perfect time to get a jump on things. Front entries are also refreshed when windows are replaced. This adds an instant upgrade to curb appeal for the upcoming warmer months.
Most people are thinking outdoors by this time, so why not think inside instead? Summer is perfect for a fireplace facelift so it’s ready for when the cooler weather hits. Then while you’re at it, tie the indoors with the outdoors. Consider adding a fire pit with the same construction components as your indoor fireplace. The larger material order cuts down on per piece price and our team is already at your home, so it’s a win-win for both indoor and outdoor remodeling projects.
Fall and Winter
Decks – Fall is the perfect time to get things going so that you can enjoy your new outdoor space as soon as spring arrives. The one caveat in MN is the temperature. As long as the ground is not frozen and we are able to safely dig, we can get your deck underway during the late fall and early winter months.
Bathrooms – Believe it or not, more people contract bathroom remodels during July than any other month. Therefore, winter is the perfect time for this type of renovation. Contractors may have more availability and the materials you want are less likely to be back ordered. Getting started with your plans in the fall means construction work can be completed in the winter.
Kitchens and Basements – Which then leads us to just about any indoor remodeling project. Winter is typically slower in general, so please reach out to Country Creek Builders with any of your remodeling thoughts and we will work with you to get started in the winter so you have a completed living space by spring.
Even though there are clearly better times and conditions for certain home remodeling projects, Country Creek Builders will make recommendations for your specific project and work to make the process as smooth as possible for you at any time of the year. Because the absolute best time to remodel your home is when you need it. Call us at 952-484-9812 or visit our website for more information on your home remodel project…any time!
