Scheduling a home remodeling project at the right time is an important step in getting to work with a great contractor because experienced home remodeling contractors often have projects scheduled well into the future.
Calling your favorite home contractor, a week before you want to replace your roof might result in disappointment unless the contractor gets a cancellation and can begin work on your home. Here is some valuable information for scheduling your next home remodeling project.
California Weather & Remodeling Projects
One of the benefits of living along the coast and in many locales in California is that the weather is conducive to home remodeling projects in most seasons. While there are many areas where it snows in California, there are also many thousands of square miles where it barely rains, and the temperatures are terrific for getting things done.
However, that doesn't mean that home remodeling contractors aren't busier in some seasons than others. For example, the summertime remains one of the most popular for virtually all home remodeling projects – and especially for major projects like installing a new roof, rewiring a house, or building an addition. If you have no choice but to remodel in the summer, it's often a good idea to call your local remodeling contractor well in advance of when you need the work done.
What Projects are Great for Summertime Remodeling?
You can get just about any home remodeling project done in the summer, but if you want a new deck, patio, or outdoor space, you might want to call your contractor in the spring and try to get things started in April through June.
An article on Angie's List reveals:
"Spring is traditionally home building season, not only because consumers are finding the money to do projects, but also because it's the time we start to come out of winter hibernation and want something new."
Many areas in California and throughout the San Jose area have gorgeous weather all winter and into the spring, but projects still start to ramp up with a vengeance during the late spring and summer. If you want a home addition built on your house, the summer is a great time to do it, but it's a good idea to get things started early, so you can be sure that you can work with your preferred contractor.
Schedule Your Project Before an Emergency Happens
The very definition of an emergency is that it's an unexpected problem that requires a quick solution and immediate attention. Having a roofing emergency or having a pipe burst in your home usually requires immediate assistance from a professional, as well as quick work to replace the broken or faulty part of your home.
However, not all emergencies are complete surprises. You'll probably know when it's close to the time you should replace your roof. It's doubtful a hole in the roof will take you by surprise unless you are beset by some crazy event like a tree falling on your house (and even that event is something that you can prevent in many cases with some attention paid to your landscaping).
The best way to avoid an emergency that will cost you an arm and a leg because of its last-minute nature is to get things replaced, repaired, remodeled, or renovated before something goes wrong. Don't wait until your water heater fails and floods your entire house. Don't wait until your roof actually starts leaking before you call a contractor.
