The holidays are right around the corner. Are you planning to host a big gathering? Are your floors in the state you want them to be? If you’ve been thinking about updating your flooring, now is a great time to do it. Many people think that summer and spring are the best times to remodel, but if new flooring installation is in the cards for you, don’t wait. Here are three big reasons to get it done this season.
The Moderate Weather
Weather is key when it comes to installation of flooring for many materials. Hardwoods, for example, respond to humidity in a big way, so the very wet spring and summer seasons are not good times to install them. Natural materials also tend to expand in the heat and contract in the cold, so if they are installed during the summer or winter months they could become distorted over time. Finally, if you’re installing your flooring using adhesive, like with many vinyl floors, the heat can affect the setting process. Since these other months are not ideal, the fall months provide the perfect time for floor installation, when it’s not too hot, too cold, or too humid.
The Kids Are In School
Kids are great, but it is no secret that they make it much harder to get projects done around the house. In the summer and over winter break when they’re home, they constantly need help or attention. But in the fall, they go back to school, and they also tend to have lots of activities. Take advantage of the fact that they are out of the house. Schedule your professional flooring installation for a day when they will be gone for most of the day. Perhaps even plan to have dinner out between the end of the school day and they start of some activity, like a dance or a game or recital. This way you can get your new flooring installed without distraction or moving obstacles.
The Upcoming Holiday Season
As mentioned before, the winter holidays and the many parties that go with them are right around the corner. There is a nice little holiday break between the end of summer and Halloween, but there is another good gap between now and Thanksgiving. If your flooring needs to replaced, or even if you just want a new look, get your new floors installed now and wow your Thanksgiving guests with your beautiful taste.
