Time and again we’ve discussed the importance of remodeling, renovating, and improving your home. This post will discuss why Fall is the best season to remodel your home!
Most house remodels occur in spring and summer. You can imagine a nice sunny day with the grass a vivid green. It makes sense to remodel in the spring or summer, as the weather is unlikely to derail a project. However, there are some great reasons as to why Fall is the best season to remodel. Below are the 4 reasons!
1. The Off-Season
The off-season means more contractors are available for hire. Remodels are less common in fall, making it the perfect time for homeowners to have their pick of professionals. Contractors are often more responsive in the off-season, and eager to give estimates for work that will keep them employed through fall and early winter. Take advantage of this and utilize the best contractors around your area!
2. That Perfect Temperature
Temperatures are ripe for remodeling convertible spaces. Finishing an attic or basement in spring or summer can be challenging due to a lack of climate control. Fall temperatures, on the other hand, are cool enough—but not too cold—to start (and finish!) a conversion project. A typical attic or basement conversion ranges from $25 to $100 per square foot.
3. The Holidays
The holidays are coming! Starting a remodel in fall will allow time to complete the project before the holidays. What better way to celebrate the season than with a newly remodeled home?
4. There is No Time Like the Present
If there is no other reason to remodel, than this one alone, you should do it anyway! Sometimes you have a remodeling project sitting on the back burner and it’s just looming over you. Now is your chance to spark some action! Whenever you feel the slightest motivation or feeling that you should get started, make one simple action to get going. This will be the catalyst for the remainder of the project. If you resist the urge to get moving, you’ll find the winter months have arrived, and with those months come the cold. Not the best time to get the remodeling started and finished. Get going now!
