You also have to consider the demand for specific tools called for on home improvement projects. There is a run on rentals during spring and summer. This could put you up against trying to find tools and equipment that are available to rent. You may have to purchase tools, if you cannot find any to rent. And if you need a dumpster on site to collect the debris, you will have to compete with others, trying to lock in one for their property. Junk removal services get really busy at that time. And you may not get the size that you are wanting.
You can argue that the cost of the materials usually is at it’s best during spring and summer. While that is true, you can still take advantage of those prices during that time by having a spot to store them until you are going to start the renovation. Buy then, use later.
That’s why we believe that fall might be worth considering when planning to start a renovation. It isn’t peak time for renovations.
You can use your summer for family time and vacation. Enjoying time spent together and not be pulled off to work on your project instead. The kids are off school during that time. It might be a better plan to do things with them, rather than trying to keep them out of the renovation stuff going on in the home. In the fall, they go back to school and project work can go on while they are there, and not under foot.
