Is Fall a Good Time to do Home Renovations?

There’s a good time and a bad time for everything, and the same rule applies to home renovations. You can save yourself the aggravation, and the money when you avoid project’s that are rushed and unorganized.

Although the nice weather in spring and summer can have you thinking about your remodelling project, that may not be the best time to begin. Rather, the right time to undergo a home renovation project is to get the best deal on materials and reduce the time and effort that goes into the work.

Here are some important factors to consider:

  • Busy building seasons
  • Supply and demand
  • Weather

Waiting is hard; patience is a virtue. Think of how good it will feel to know that with some thoughtful planning and a solid strategy. You were able to complete your home renovation at the right time, with the right supplies, and just how you like it!

Supply, Demand, and Remodelling

The easy concept of supply and demand can have a big impact on your home renovation project. To get the best price and materials, you need to buy at the right time.

It’s true that you may not be ready to begin your project yet when lumber or the prices of other materials are the cheapest,  However, if you plan it well and enough in advance, you should be able to buy your supplies at a low price and simply store them until you are ready to start your project.

Avoid Busy Building Season

When you begin to see your neighbourhood filled with contractors, that’s a sign it’s the wrong time to start your remodelling project. You don’t want to become just a number to a busy contractor. When business is busiest for builders, your project may get rushed or put to the side. Moreover, you may find that the necessary tools are not available because they have already been rented out. For example, any home renovation project needs to have the right-sized bin to accommodate the waste and junk that you’ll need to get rid of. If you opt to do your project at the busiest time of year, though, you may not get the size bin you need, which can lead to a lot of frustration.

However, that doesn’t mean you need to wait for the off-season. In Canada, winter is never the right time to start home renovations. So, you’ll need to watch and wait for the not-so-busy season. By hiring them after their peak season, you can be confident that your project will get the care and attention that it deserves.
