Considering a home remodel or an addition to your existing living spaces? Careful planning, including what time of year to remodel, is the key in getting the most for your money. Many experts agree spring is the ideal time to begin planning construction and home-remodel projects.
Why is now the best time to begin this process?
Kitchen remodels - Beginning the process of a remodel or addition to your kitchen in spring means most of the work will likely be done in summer and early fall. When remodeling your kitchen, don’t forget to plan for your kitchen to be at least partially out of commission during that time. While remodeling a home you are living in, you should expect some minor inconveniences, but a home without a functional kitchen can be even more stressful, especially for families. A kitchen remodel during spring, summer or fall means you have the option of using your outdoor grill for cooking, and aren’t reliant on take out and delivery for every meal. If you’ve got a kitchen remodel in mind, now is the prime time to begin planning your project.
Living room and living space remodels or additions - Like a kitchen remodel, you should plan for your living spaces to be inaccessible for a period of time. Plan your remodel for a time when you and your family can take advantage of warm weather and can spend time outside, rather than being cooped up in the remaining functional spaces of your home. Whether you’re redoing your living room, or adding an additional living space, sunroom or even backyard deck, beginning a home construction project during the spring means you will likely have time to enjoy the new or updated space in late summer or fall, which is also the time of year when many occasions call for entertaining guests.
A September 1961 article in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette outlined the reasons why early spring was the best time for a home remodel project. Things have certainly changed in the last 50 years, but even today, some experts would say that spring is still the ideal time to begin a remodel project because it is the time of year when construction materials are the least expensive. While this likely fluctuates some from year to year, it is important to do your research and talk to your contractor about the best time economically to begin your project.
An addition to your home or a remodel of your existing living spaces is a great way to add value to your home. Especially if you are considering selling your home in the next few years, now is the perfect time to begin a remodel project. Do the work now, so you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your labor before you sell.
