Planning to get your home remodeled? There are some methods to going about home remodels that you should take note of. For one thing, you should have your home remodel done in summer. Let’s take a look at why.
Get Away from the Noise
One of the small reasons you should consider planning for a summer remodel is the ability to escape the noise. Colder times of the year can leave you feeling trapped in the house while it’s being worked on. With not much to do outside the house, it may feel like there’s little alternative. However, in the summer, there are ample opportunities to leave.
- Going to a park for some sun or a walk
- Taking a day trip to the beach
- Spending a day at the fair or a farmer’s market
- Going camping for a little while and taking the opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature
- Grabbing lunch at a cafe with some friends
The possible outings you could plan over the course of your home remodel are only limited by the imagination. With great weather, you could do all kinds of things.
Speaking of better weather, there are more benefits to that than just making outings more attainable. They also make the building process faster. Cement for an expanded foundation or anchoring points will set faster in the heat. Paint will dry faster, making it possible to move on to new tasks quicker. Overall, having the heat around does good things for the progress of construction.
One such good thing is make working conditions better for the construction crew. While heat is its own challenge, it’s certainly better than working in the cold. Bundling up to spend a day outside building in winter is a lot harder than coping with sweat. Plus, working in warm weather is actually better for the body. Injuries from repetitive motion are less likely to occur when it’s warm. The cold can make joints ache after a lot of work, especially in more seasoned crew members.
Last but not least, summer is a great time for your remodel because house-selling season is just around the corner. The end of summer and all throughout fall is when most real estate movement happens. Not only do people rush to get moved in to a new home before winter, there’s also the housing turnover from the new school year. College students return from school in search of new housing or search for housing nearby the campus. Parents try to move smoothly before their younger kids’ school year starts.
There are a variety of reasons why this time of year is most popular for moving, but the specifics don’t all matter. What’s important is that getting your home remodeled in summer sets you up to be ready for sale season. If you plan on selling your house, having it done before fall is ideal for you and everyone seeking new real estate.
