When is the Best Time to Remodel a Bathroom?


Sometimes remodeling is a seasonal affair, and it should come as no surprise that the bulk of these projects happen in spring and summer. This is a convenient time for parents since kids are not in school. Longer, warmer days are better for getting work done, whether it is on the inside or outside. With this in mind, is this the best time to have a major overhaul of your bathroom done? Here are some things to think about if you want to remodel this space at the right time.

The Busy Season

You might not be the only person looking at the summer period as the ideal time to get that bathroom redone. This means that during this period there will be a higher demand for these types of services. There are two possible problems here. One is that it will be difficult to get the contractor you want to fit you into his schedule.

Another potential issue is that this could leave you open to dealing with unlicensed individuals. The fact is that many contractors will be busy during this time, and their full schedules can make it difficult to fit you in. You might not want to wait until the following year and being in a hurry can limit your options.

The Off Season

Nobody wants to be caught in the midst of the holiday season dealing with a remodeling project, and this applies to both contractors and clients. Getting your bathroom remodeled in the off season does not have to mean struggling with the project while keeping up with the festivities. Many people make the smart of move of scheduling appointments before Thanksgiving and Christmas. At this time, some of the best contractors are not as busy as they would be in the summer season. Of course, depending on the area where you live, the weather could be a factor.

Off-season Prices

With the increased demand for contractors’ services during the summer, there will also be greater sales in building supplies and materials. Getting your project going after this period can help you to find these products at lower prices. You can even start talking to a contractor in the summer with a later start date in mind. Then after the summer rush you can start buying your materials to benefit from the lower prices.

As always, early planning is critical to getting project done on time and with minimal inconvenience. If the cold weather has started to set in, it might not be a good idea to start remodeling the bathroom. With the right amount of planning, you should be able to start right after the summer, so you can have your new bathroom before the holidays.
