The Best Time of the Year for Renovations

Posted on Monday, May 15th, 2017

When it comes to home renovations, getting started isn’t always easy. You might have an idea of what your perfect home looks like in your mind, but no idea how to get there. You might know everything that needs doing, right down to the last detail, but just have no idea where to start. Or you might not have a clue what’s best for you home at all, and be relying on the advice of professionals to guide you along.

Whatever the case, home renovations can be stressful, no matter how well you’ve planned, and one of the most stressful parts is knowing when to begin.

For the most part, any renovations can be undertaken at any time of the year, but there are certain climates that contribute to making the job just a little bit easier.

Winter Months

As the middle of the year creeps toward us and the weather starts to cool off a bit, the prime climate for outdoor renovations appears. The colder, dry air and the harder ground makes it easier to dig into the ground and set down strong foundations for expanding your home, whereas the humid air of the warmer months makes it more difficult.

Spring Months

When the cold weather begins to drop away and the sun starts to shine a bit more, it’s a great time to consider any outdoor renovations. Having decks or patios installed can take time, and getting them ready before summer hits has the dual benefit of ensuring the builders are not toiling away in the heat, and knowing that your outdoor area will be ready for you to relax on all summer long.

Other outdoor renovations such as barbeque pits and swimming pools can also be fitted during the spring time, ready to make your summer even more amazing.

Summer Months

In Australia, the weather isn’t shy about letting you know when summer has arrived. The hot weather can make working outside almost unbearable, which makes indoor renovations the best for the hotter months.

Bathroom and kitchen renovation are particularly popular during these months, and if you’re lucky enough to be going on holiday, scheduling your renovation for the same time could mean that you avoid the trouble of living in a building site, and return from your holiday to a brand new kitchen, bathroom, or living area.

Autumn Months

Many people insist that the autumn months are the best time of the year to have any renovation work done, as the weather is the perfect balance between too hot and too cold. Much like spring, it is a great time to have outdoor work completed, although places that have high chances of rain throughout autumn may want to be careful about having extensions and foundations fitted during this time.

When Is the Best Time for You?

All the advice in the world about the best time to renovate your home is useless if you yourself aren’t ready. One of the most important things you can do when it comes to renovation and DIY is to do your research thoroughly. Finding out how much it’s going to cost, what materials you’re going to need, and which contractors you want to complete the job are just the first steps.

Having your kitchen renovated in summer might seem like a great idea, but if you’re not ready for it, it will only cause you stress and trouble.
