The best time to remodel varies from situation to situation. After all, there’s no such thing as a “convenient” time in an active home, so the best way to decide is to weigh the pros and cons of each season, depending on the work to be done. If you’re planning a new countertop installation, for example, Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, recommends doing it either right now or waiting for a slower season. Read on for a more detailed examination of the “ideal” remodeling season.
Renovating in Spring & Summer
The most popular seasons for completing home improvement projects are spring and summer, especially outdoor projects. This is because warm and dry weather makes it easier to work for long shifts and creates ample conditions for adhesives to cure. The main drawback of spring and summer remodeling is that talented contractors will be extremely busy this time of year—so if you need countertop installation done before fall, right now is the ideal time to start planning.
Indoor projects, such as kitchen remodeling, can be completed regardless of the time, as each season has its perks. If you install new countertops in the winter, for example, you’ll probably save on labor costs, as winter tends to be a low-traffic season for most contractors. You may prefer a summertime remodel, however, if you aren’t thrilled about construction workers coming in and out during frigid weather. Additionally, it may take longer to complete work during the winter due to the holidays.
