California Home and Commercial Remodels
Ontario California; considering a re-model? One of the most common questions we get is “What is the best time of year to do this?” For many places around the country, the summer season is the most popular for remodeling. It's true that sunny days and warm weather are very beneficial when it comes to working outside, but there is much more to consider when planning a remodeling project than just the temperature. In many cases, knowing when to remodel is likely to save you money as well as time during your project; while spring and summer might be the most popular seasons for home improvement, typically it is also the hardest season to get the items that you need.
Here are some pros and cons of re-modeling during the summer season in California
PRO: Here in California the weather it typically bearable and workable year round. Depending on where you are, we do not deal with much rain or snow, however summer guarantees that your project materials won’t get drenched. It’s also nice to have your kids help out (if they are home from school) or if you have summer time off from work.
CON: Depending on where you are, the summer season heat may be too much if your renovation is taking place outdoors.
PRO: The school season is chaotic for anyone with kids, during the summer kids can either stay home or help out, or they spend the summer off with their friends at the beach or theme parks. Another reason why the summer season is typically more popular over spring, fall and winter.
CON: If your kids are the type that want to stay home during the summer and play in the back yard, they may not be happy campers about the mess you have going on back there.
LONGER DAYLIGHT HOURS
PRO: Longer days are always a plus. With sunset generally taking place after 7pm each night instead of 4 or 5, the contractors typically have more hours in the day to get your project done sooner, or safer because there is plenty of light to see what they are doing.
CON: No cons on this one!
