Springtime is more than just the best time to deep clean, it is also a great time to completely remodel. Spring represents rebirth in the world– the flowers are blooming, trees are finally getting back their leaves, the birds fly back from their southern winter home, and the animals are finally coming back out to play. If nature can heal itself, why can’t you do the same with your home? We’ve compiled a list of the top reasons why spring is the best time to remodel your home.
Top five reasons to start remodeling in the spring
There are a variety of reasons to start your remodeling process in the spring– even if this means beginning in the spring and ending in the summer.

Springtime can be the best time to remodel your home because of the weather. Whether you are remodeling the interior or exterior of your home, good weather is a must when taking things in and out, unloading vehicles with furniture, painting, or doing whatever else you may need. You definitely don’t want it to be raining, which could happen on occasion, but overall, you want to make sure that it is not too hot or too cold while you are working.
Those conditions could lead to bigger problems with yourself or those who are doing the work– heat stroke, or hypothermia– both of which are not easy to deal with, especially in the midst of remodeling your home. During the spring, the weather is just right, and if the sun is out, it’s an added bonus.

The feeling of renewal
People are often more motivated during the spring because of the feeling of renewal that the season brings. This is why spring cleaning is so popular, because as people feel the weather start to change and the flowers begin to bloom, they have a strong desire to do that within themselves as well. Usually spring cleaning is the easiest and quickest option, but spring remodeling should be as well. This feeling that we get helps us look forward to something new in our lives after a long winter.
In addition to this, remodeling and cleaning up our homes in the spring can help to get rid of the feeling of seasonal depression that the winter often brings for so many.

Many people wait to do their remodel in the summer because there is a better chance of getting good weather during that time of year. But, the prices of all of the supplies are higher because there is a higher demand. Even if you decide to start your remodeling in the summer like many other people, purchasing your materials in the spring and finding somewhere to store it for a few months would still be a great tactic to save money.

If you decide to remodel the outside of your house in the spring, you can plant your flowers and refurbish your garden all at the same time so that your house looks brand new in time for summer. In addition to this, the nature around your house that you may not have control over– trees and grass– will start to get green and grow more, which will add natural curb appeal to your home. So, if you renovate in the spring, nature can help you out a bit!

Many people are looking to move in the summer
If you are planning on remodeling because you are moving, the spring is a great time to start because many people decide to move in the summer. This will ensure that your house is renovated and on the market just in time for the boom of home hunters to see your newly renovated place.
If you aren’t selling your own home, renovating your house also adds value to the rest of your neighborhood, so it could potentially help your neighbors to sell their homes easier as well. When summer rolls around, your house is renovated and you may have new people to make friends with around the neighborhood!

What is the best month to do renovations?
The best month to do renovations to your home is March. This is because it is still the beginning of the springtime, meaning that the ground is still slightly frozen. This is helpful if you are doing renovations to the exterior of your home, because then your materials won’t be sinking into the ground, and your shoes won’t get muddy. This is especially helpful if you are planning on installing a deck as one of your renovations. Even if you’re sticking with interior renovations, it will still keep the mud from being tracked into your home.
