When you’re planning a bathroom remodel, there are several important factors to consider before scheduling the project. One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make is when to get your remodel on the books. Here at Carolina Home Remodeling, we believe that winter is one of the best times to tackle your bathroom renovation. Below, you’ll learn more about the benefits of a winter shower install so you can feel confident deciding when to book your project.
When you’re ready to take that next step, we’re happy to answer any questions you have and give you a free, no-obligation estimate for your new shower installation.
Avoid Peak Bathroom Remodeling Season
Most homeowners think about remodeling their bathrooms during the spring, as they tackle their spring cleaning checklists, or during the fall, to prepare their homes for the holiday season. By choosing to install your new shower during the winter instead, you can avoid these “peak” remodeling times, when other local homeowners are scrambling to get their projects on schedule.
Instead, there will likely be more flexible time slots available, so you can schedule your shower installation at a time that works best for your family’s needs.
Avoid Potential Delays
Along those same lines, when there are more bathroom renovations scheduled around the same time as yours, there’s a higher potential for schedule delays. For example, if a project scheduled for the day before yours takes longer to complete than expected, there’s a chance your project start date could be moved to accommodate the delays.
By planning your shower installation in the winter, when fewer homeowners are remodeling, you are less likely to experience these scheduling delays so your project stays on track.
It’s a Good Time for Interior Work
Do you have a long list of home remodeling projects you want to accomplish in the next year? Some exterior projects, like replacing your entry door are harder to do in the winter, because of the weather.
In that case, winter is the perfect time to tackle your interior projects, like a shower installation. Then, you can save your exterior projects for a different time of year.
Make Trendy Upgrades
As we move into a new year, new bathroom design trends emerge, leaving many homeowners inspired to make changes. If you decide to install a new shower in the winter, you can get in on these trends while they’re still hot, becoming a trendsetter right in your own neighborhood.
When deciding which designs you want to incorporate in your updated bathroom, we recommend combining a mix of trendy features with some classic elements, so your new shower won’t look outdated within a few years.
Avoid Product Delays
Just as we mentioned scheduling delays above, remodeling your bathroom during more popular times of the year can also lead to product delays. For example, when a higher percentage of homeowners are planning a shower remodel in the fall, your contractor may have a lower stock of the products you want.
If you have to wait for these products to come back in stock, it can push back your project timeline, leading to a more stressful experience. By remodeling in the winter when product demand is lower, you won’t have to deal with as many delays.
Take Advantage of Vacation Time
Many of us have extra time off at the end of the year, during the holiday season. If you’re planning to stay in town during this time off, you can use this to your advantage and plan your shower installation around it. Don’t sit around for a bath to shower conversion, worrying about if the remodeling noise will interrupt your important meeting?
In doing so, you can use this already-planned time off to be home during your shower installation. This prevents you from having to take a future vacation day to do it at a different point in the year. As a bonus, you can use this time off to knock a few items off your home remodeling to-do list so you feel accomplished and productive going into the new year.
