Can you believe it’s almost September? I heard recently that Starbucks is introducing all things pumpkin spice during the last week of August. Yes, summer is coming to an end and Fall is just around the corner. That means the holidays will be here before we know it.
Historically, October is the biggest booking month for home renovation projects for most construction companies.Contractors talk about this fact all the time. People start to make their Halloween party plans and then begin to think about hosting visitors and large family gatherings in their homes for the holidays after that.
People begin to look around at their kitchens, guest bathrooms or great rooms. They start the process of calling construction companies to ask for estimates during the month of October, gathering information with the idea that the project will be scheduled and completed before November.
However, the timeframe to schedule an appointment, return an estimate, negotiate details, and book a start date is approximately three to four weeks. If a homeowner begins the process in October, the start of any project may very likely not be able to be scheduled until mid-November, with a pre-holiday completion nearly impossible.
This is the reason for this blog. Begin thinking now about your holiday gatherings. If you begin now, we could complete a three-week guest bath remodel before your guests arrive for Thanksgiving. If your family gathers at your home for the holidays or you’re going to be gathering in someone else’s home this year, share this blog as a reminder to begin renovationpreparations now.
Let’s make SEPTEMBER (not October) the month to book your home renovation!
