Why Summer is the Best Time for Home Remodels

When it comes to home renovations, timing is everything. Whether you want to put in an addition or make small upgrades to the kitchen, summer has long been considered one of the best seasons for home renovation projects.

If you think it’s time to upgrade your home, here are a few reasons why you should get started now.

Benefits of Renovating in the Summer

More time off from work.

Even relatively minor renovations require a lot of work on your part. Whether you need to find a contractor, put furniture in storage, or shop for samples, every renovation requires planning and attention to detail. If you’re busy working 40+ hours a week, you may not be able to give your renovation the attention it deserves.

But because things tend to slow down in the summer and people have more vacation time from work, now is the perfect time to dive into a renovation you’ll enjoy for years.

Less chance of weather delays.

Bad weather is every contractor's worst nightmare. Not only can it delay a project by days, if not weeks, but it can make for very messy renovations. Even if you’re only remodeling inside, rain and snow can ruin equipment that’s sitting outside or make a mess in your home as workers walk in and out.

But with the sun shining until almost 8 p.m. in the summer, there’s less of a chance that bad weather will affect your project.

You can escape to the great outdoors.

No one enjoys sitting in the house listening to the sounds of hammers and circular saws. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to avoid the chaos — head to the beach, spend a day at the pool, visit a water park, or enjoy lunch at the park. Even enjoying time in your backyard would likely be preferable to sitting inside all day.

Your home will be ready in time for the holidays.

The winter holidays will be here before you know it. If you start a project too late in the year, you may find yourself enjoying Thanksgiving dinner in a half-finished kitchen. But even the biggest renovations tend to be finished in just a few months, leaving you plenty of time to spruce up your home for the holidays.
