It’s that time of year—spring is just around the corner! With milder temps in the forecast for Tulsa, you might be looking ahead to that remodeling project you had planned for this year. Maybe you’re planning to upgrade the kitchen with new appliances or cabinets. Maybe it’s a room addition, or new wood floors in one or more rooms of the home.
If so, here’s a suggestion for you: Think about starting sooner, rather than later. Here are a few reasons why.
Schedules Fill Up in the Spring and Summer
The spring and summer months are “prime time” for contractors—it’s when they get busiest. By contrast, many contractors have more openings in the winter months, and most indoor projects can be done year-round with no problem. If you wait until April or May to call the contractor, you could find yourself on a wait list, depending on how busy he is. If you call sooner, chances are he can fit you in before the rush.
Supplies Are More Available
As the year progresses, shortages of supplies become more common as demand for materials sometimes exceeds the supply. The winter months are when your construction materials are most likely to be available—and possibly even at discounted prices. Getting started now puts you ahead of the rush.
This Year May Be Exceptionally Busy
The construction industry is booming right now, and a recent report by Marketwatch predicts that the demand for new construction homes may increase by double digits in 2018. Many home builders in the Tulsa area use the same contractors you do, which means you will likely be competing with these builders for time on the calendar. The later you wait to begin your remodeling project, the more likely it is that you could be waiting even longer. Booking the contractor now might help you “skip the line.”
