If you are looking to upgrade your home, now is the best time to do it. You can save a ton of time and money by starting your next home remodeling project sooner rather than later.
Prices for home remodeling products like windows, doors, siding, roofing, masonry, and more are continuing to increase monthly. some of these products have increased over 50% the past year.
If you start your project now, you will be able to save and lock in the current price of products before the next price increase. Not only are the prices of materials increasing but so is the labor costs. Labor for home remodeling projects has seen increases of over 10% between 2019 and 2021.
This means with the increase in pricing and increases in materials. a job you could have gotten done in 2019 is not over 60% more expensive today. With all of this said, the sooner you are able to sign a contract for your next home remodeling project the better off you will be.
The other reason you want to start your home remodeling project as soon as possible is because of the delays in manufacturing. With the raw material shortage in the world right now, products are taking months to be made, shipped, and delivered.
Some products have seen limitations placed on certain styles or colors in order for the manufacturers to increase the production of supplies to meet the current demand. Starting to decide on the specific styles, colors, and materials you want for your project now is smart. You want to make sure everything you want is available and placed on order as soon as possible to ensure your project is done in time for Spring.
