As mentioned in this Home Advisor article, it doesn’t hurt to remodel during a sunroom contractor’s “off-season.” In fact, you just might find that a sunroom addition in the winter season is more advantageous than in the busy seasons of spring and summer.
Know When to Remodel: Understanding Supply and Demand
Much like buying your winter clothes in the summer, and your Halloween candy the day after Halloween, building materials cost much less when they are not in “high” demand. Home Advisor mentions that by planning your home project well in advance, you may be able to “accrue materials when they are at their cheapest, and can simply store them until you’re ready to begin working.”
Understanding the supply and demand of these products can help you determine the right time to add a 4-season PLUS sunroom to your home, even in the midst of a Pittsburgh winter.
Contractors’ Busy Times Are Not the Best Time to Remodel
If you’ve ever sat in traffic during a notorious Pittsburgh rush-hour, you are well aware that there are certain times of the day when things just work better. Much like deciding to go on a paper towel run to Walmart on the afternoon of Black Friday, the busiest times aren’t necessarily the most convenient times for any of the parties involved. According to Home Advisor, knowing when to remodel is not just about material cost but about contractor availability, too. On top of that, sunroom contractors have busy seasons where they are turning away work and times of the year when they can’t find enough. Take the time to reach out to these contractors the second building a sunroom crosses your mind. You may find that you’ve reached out at the most opportune time.
Cost of materials and contractors’ busy seasons are large factors when deciding when to remodel. But the most important thing to take into consideration is your enjoyment. If you don’t get to build your sunroom until mid-summer, you won’t have as much time to enjoy it. If you build in the winter time, your sunroom will be ready for summer weather by the first 70 degree afternoon.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt to drop a line to your North Hills sunroom contractor at any time. If you’re thinking about adding another room to your home to enjoy in the dead of winter or the heat of the summer, call Pro Home & Sunroom. Request your free estimate today!
