Best Time of Year To Remodel Your Bathroom

Spring is typically thought of as the season for cleaning—but did you know that it’s also the best time of year to remodel your bathroom?

Spring and summer are the two best seasons for home renovations (they’re peak renovation time for a reason). Keep reading to learn why you should consider a bathroom remodel now—and why you shouldn’t wait to call those contractors.

Why Remodel Your Bathroom in Spring and Summer?

There are several reasons it’s a good idea to do a bathroom remodel now.

The Weather Is Cooperating

First and foremost, the weather is good. You might not have known this, but weather conditions actually play a pretty big role in how quickly and easily renovations get done! Adverse weather conditions—like rain, snow, humidity, and freezing temperatures—can make it difficult to nearly impossible to do work on your home.

When it comes to a bathroom remodel, starting in spring or summer has a few key advantages. Longer days with more sunlight means more working hours—so your project can get done faster. Certain building materials—like caulk—are negatively affected by cold weather and work better in spring. Plus, other materials like flooring and windows are temperature-sensitive—expanding in the heat and contracting in the cold. That makes spring, with its mild weather, ideal for installing flooring or replacing windows. Also, if part of your renovations include adding onto your home, doing the work in spring is ideal. (The ground is softer and easier to build on.)

What’s more, having nice weather allows you to be more comfortable during renovations. You can, for example, throw open your windows after painting, to air out your home without freezing!

You Can Schedule Renovations While Away

Spring and summer are great times for a bathroom remodel because you can schedule renovations while out of the house.

It can be tough to live in your home during the mess of a remodel. However, you can avoid the hassle of living in a construction zone by scheduling your renovations during a vacation! By scheduling the most intensive remodel work for when you’re out of the house, you get to skip the hard parts—and come home to a beautiful new bathroom.

Even if you’d rather not schedule renovations while you’re out of town, spring and summer offer more opportunities for you to get out of the house, later in the day. You still get to avoid the mess and the fuss.

Don’t Wait to Get Started

For all the reasons we listed above, this time of year is popular for renovations. That means it’s important not to wait to get started on your bathroom remodel.

Good interior designers, contractors, builders, and glass experts (like Jack’s Glass) will all be busier in the spring and summer. Other homeowners will also be calling about their own projects. If you wait to inquire about your bathroom remodel, you might be stuck waiting months until you can begin your project.

Of course, you can do renovations most of the year, but the wait can be very annoying for the homeowner who wants to ditch their moldy old shower curtain ASAP!
