Spring is absolutely the best time to make the changes to your home you’ve been thinking about all year (or longer) – for a lot of good reasons. If you want to bust out of the confines of your dated (and too small) home, read on!

Reason #1 – Lower rainfall

August 30 1

According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, September has the lowest rainfall of any month in Sydney. Its 68mm is almost half that of the wettest months March and April (130mm and 129mm respectively). October and November are also both low-rainfall months. Why does that matter? It means faster completion times, as better weather translates to more time available to complete the job. You’ll be in your newly renovated home sooner with less disruption and potentially lower costs of alternative accommodation (as well as possible cost increases should out-of-the-ordinary weather set in).[/fusion_text]

Reason #2 – It’s just warmer

When the roof has been taken off your house, you notice the difference if it’s the middle of winter – or the middle of summer for that matter. Spring is the ideal time temperature-wise to undertake major home alterations, as the moderate temperatures make it make it much more pleasant if you’re staying put while the work is being undertaken. We pride ourselves on being able to work around families to save them on alternative accommodation costs and Spring is definitely the best time if that’s what you’re hoping to do.

Reason #3 – Get it done before the silly season!

August 30 3

December and January are tricky times for getting big jobs done. Understandably lots of people want their project completed before Christmas. But labour and material resources are finite, so December is often the worst time to be trying to finish up a big project. So our final tip is this – if you’re planning on a big family Christmas or a relaxed holiday season in your newly-renovated abode, aim to finish before the end of Spring to ensure you’re sitting pretty when the silly season hits full swing!

When to begin

It’s wise to plan around a 12 month cycle for a well-thought out home addition or extension. This includes the research stage, choosing your builder, designs, approvals and the actual construction. This means that now is the ideal time to start for a Spring 2017 completion.
