When Is the Best Time to Renovate Your Home

When Is the Best Time to Renovate Your Home in New England?

The best time to renovate your home in New England is when you have the desire, need, and budget. But beyond that, the best time to remodel your home may depend on the project and time of year. Generally, there is no bad time to renovate or remodel your home’s interior.

If your project involves exterior work such as a home addition, new roof, or window replacement, remember that a heavy snowfall or an extended rainy period could cause delays. But rest assured that when you work with experienced remodeling contractors such as the team here at RWC, we can handle whatever Mother Nature throws at us and still deliver you the exceptional results you deserve. 

Keep reading to learn more about various home remodeling projects to renovate your home and the best time to undertake these projects.

When to Renovate Your Home with Whole House Remodeling

As mentioned above, for large projects, the exterior work can be done at any time other than a period of heavy rain or heavy snow. But the interior work can start at any time. 

If you’re doing a whole house renovation involving demolition or removing walls, you may want to time the project when you and your family can easily stay elsewhere. It can be very challenging to live your life while construction is going on all around you!

You are still involved in the project even if you’re not living on the premises. We listen to you, offer guidance to help you make the right decisions for renovating your home, and deliver a 5-star experience.

When to Remodel Your Home with Kitchen Renovations

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so no matter when you schedule your kitchen remodel, there will be a disruption to your daily life. If you have school-age children, kitchen remodeling might not be the best project for summertime, when the kids are home all day. 

If you’re hosting this year, try to avoid scheduling your kitchen remodeling too close to big holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. While it might be great to show off your newly renovated kitchen to family and friends, if you cut the timing too close, work or supply chain delays could leave you with an unfinished project just as guests arrive.

When to Renovate Your Home with Bathroom Remodeling

You do bathroom renovations at any time of year. The scope of the bathroom remodel will determine how long you’ll need to use one of the other bathrooms in your home. From a simple powder room remodel to a complete renovation and expansion of the primary suite to turn it into the spa bathroom of your dreams, there is no wrong time to undertake this remodeling project.

When to Remodel Your Home with Attic Renovations

Why wait if you have a home with an attic big enough to turn into usable living space? You can renovate your home with this project any time of the year. Getting an HVAC system up and running would be a consideration if you wanted work to start in the summer, as attic temperatures can soar in the warmer months. This project could involve hooking into your existing duct system or installing a ductless heating and cooling system.

An attic renovation or attic remodel project can turn unused space into a bedroom space, a quiet getaway space, an art studio, a playroom, a home office, or a multi-use area. Consider adding skylights to bring in more natural light.

When to Renovate Your Home with Basement Remodeling

Turning your basement into a comfortable living space rather than simply a storage area or laundry room makes sense if you want to use every square inch of your New England home. You can remodel your home with this project at any time of year with minimal disruption to your daily routine. 

But before any basement finishing or basement remodeling, you need to ensure the basement is dry and has no water intrusion. If you notice a damp smell or puddling, seek out the advice of a basement waterproofing company.

Once you have a dry basement, you can finish or renovate it any way you desire. Some examples of projects we can design and complete for you include:

  • Apartment you can rent or use as an in-law suite
  • Home theater
  • Family room/game room
  • Home office
  • Wine cellar

We can relocate the laundry room upstairs to the main level, add a basement bathroom and kitchen, and more. When you renovate your home, our team caters to you and your family’s needs. We excel at bringing your vision to life.
