Timing with home improvement or home maintenance is really everything. If you get the timing right, you’re going to save yourself time, aggravation and maybe a little money. You have to consider the weather, the cost of materials, which fluctuate throughout the year, and labor availability. Those three factors drive the timing around certain projects.One of the biggest challenges for home renovation is a persistent shortage of labor contributing to longer wait times and higher costs for projects. General contractors, remodelers and design-build firms noted an increase in subcontractor costs leading to higher overall project costs for clients in the past year.While there are perfect times of year to do this or that, ultimately, the schedule of the project is conditional on the schedule of the professional you’re about to hire.
