When considering the right time to complete any major renovation project in your home, there are multiple factors that you need to pay attention to. Contractor availability, project timeline and price are three of the most important factors that can affect your project. A full bathroom remodel would unquestionably fall into the category of a major renovation project, and so we will explore each of the above factors in relation to bathroom renovations below.

1. Contractor Availability

Most homeowners tend to lean towards the spring and summer months to complete their home renovations. This seems to be the best time for them as the weather is nice, so if windows and doors are left open or removed you are not disrupted by the cold weather. The downside of waiting for the weather to warm up, is that contractor demand is high. So, you may not be able to hire the contractor you wanted, or you may end up waiting weeks or even months before the project can begin. Materials also become a bit of a concern at this time, as many contractors are putting in their orders, there may be a delay in delivery and there is also a higher chance of a mix up with another order. Reaching out to your desired bathroom renovation specialist in fall, winter or early spring, will increase your chances of being able to get the job done in a timely fashion.

2. Project Timeline

Planning for your bathroom renovation ahead of time, will help shorten the process when it comes time for the work to actually begin. If you have a date selected or a special event that you need to have your renovation completed by, you could find yourself in a bind if you did not plan ahead. Let’s say you want to complete your new spa inspired master bathroom by your 10th wedding anniversary in July. Selecting a company in early winter to come look at the space and design your new bathroom gives you enough time to ensure your deadline is met. The crew and material will be booked well in advance. As mentioned above, most contractors are not as busy during the winter months, so chances are they will have more time to discuss your vision and plan for the renovation. On the flip side, if you begin your search in May for a July deadline, you need to be willing to accept what options are available at the time, or you risk missing your deadline.

3. Price

Most contractors have their own pricing model that they follow when providing estimates to potential clients. If the contractor has a hefty workload with plenty of jobs coming up, they may be less inclined to negotiate the price. But, if you find the contractor during a slow period or when they are looking to fill in their schedule, they may be more willing to negotiate the price to get the job. Material costs may also fluctuate due to demand. The same way that Christmas decorations are drop in price on December 26th, some materials may be less expensive during slower times. However, the same way that the availability of decorations will be lower on December 26th, waiting for a slower season may mean having a smaller selection material.
