First Finishers LLC is a preferred choice for many homeowners in Washington’s Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater areas that are searching for an experienced and licensed remodeling contractor.  You will also find First Finishers among the top general contractors anywhere when comparing the facts. 

So, when is the best time to remodel your Olympia WA area home? Many that attempt to answer this question will probably guess Spring and Summer. And you’d be right…in part.

The truth is that while Spring (during dry moments) and Summer are great times to carry out remodeling and general contractor work, but, they aren’t the only times. First Finishers are one of the area’s few year-round general contractors offering expert remodeling contractor services. First Finishers can complete work on your property pretty much any time of the year without causing major disruption or discomfort to you. How do we do this? Read on to find out.

Working with a remodeling contractor in January through March

You may not think that some of the coldest months in Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater are great for starting construction with a general contractor or remodeling contractor, but you’d be wrong. As long as there hasn’t been a lot of rain, the cold ground is usually perfect for digging and laying foundations. If you are extending your property, the start of the year is a great time to start. It can be a big advantage to get all of this work completed and undercover before the rain really sets in. Conversely, as a remodeling contractor, we also use this time to add the finishing touches to the interior of your home remodel so that you are ready to enjoy it in the summer months ahead.

Working with a remodeling contractor in April through June

Okay, so the start of this period can be wet. Really, really, really wet. And even a year-round general contractor and remodeling contractor like First Finishers will struggle to get a lot of work done in this period. When working with clients during this period, we recommend starting with outdoor spaces that don’t take a huge amount of time to complete and that they will want to use in the Summer months. As such, decks, patios and other outdoor rooms and spaces are the perfect remodel project to complete here. If you are having your entire home remodeled, this is where we will start to build from the ground up, developing the skeleton of your home or extension ready to power on in the hotter, drier months.

Working with a general contractor in July through August

One of the best things about being a remodeling contractor and general contractor working in Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater is that we don’t have to worry about the weather getting so hot that we can’t do anything. That means we can use this time to finish up the exterior of your remodel before moving inside to get things ready ahead of winter. If you take a couple of months off in the summer to vacation away from home, this can be the perfect time to get pretty much any job done on your home in Washington. Many clients prefer to hand us over the keys and let us go to work without having to worry about living in a building site. Of course, if you do still live in your home while we are working, we do our best to keep noise and disruption to a bare minimum. There’s no need to worry about our workers treading dirty boots through your home, either. If the weather does get too hot in our part of the world at this time, we’ll also start to carry out kitchen and bathroom remodels. These can be done in a couple of months, and if they aren’t complete now then we can wait until later in the year—that’s if you’re having a complete remodel, of course. Finally, it may be that a new roof has to wait until Summer as many roof materials need higher temperatures to seal.

Working with a general contractor in September through December

While the end of this period may be too cold and wet to do anything even for a fantastic remodeling contractor and general contractor like us, the start of this period is great for completing any number of interior renovations. If you want to renovate or remodel your entire home completely, we may well get started in September and October so that we have some work completed in case winter is bad. But this is also the period where we finish off many homes, using the last few months of the year to add the finishing touches and to complete interior work such as bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen remodels. The weather doesn’t so much matter with these projects and, also, many clients wish to have it all completed before Thanksgiving. No one wants to have a construction crew in their home over Thanksgiving and the Holidays (and we don’t want to be there much either!), so we work doubly hard to get everything finished before then.

How we respect your home, whatever the time of year

At First Finishers, we take steps to make sure that we protect your home whatever the time of year and whatever the remodeling project. We understand how scary it can be to have general contractors and remodeling contracts stomping through your beautiful home, which is why we promise the following things:

To treat your home as if it were our own. We won’t track dirt or any other materials through your property, and we will always be careful and courteous

To keep you in the loop. If the weather stops us from showing up, we’ll let you know as soon as possible

To always stick to the schedule. As you can see, we can split up your remodeling project so that work is always being completed at every time of the year. Of course, this only works if we stick to our schedule.

As you can see, a lot goes into being a year-round remodeling contractor and general contractor. But that effort and care are what separates us from every other remodeling contractor and general contractor in Lacey, Tumwater, and Olympia. It’s also why so many clients love working with us and recommend us to their friends and family.

If you are looking to complete your own home or business remodel or renovation, there really is no time like the present. And as a leading remodeling contractor and general contractor, we can help.

However big or small your construction project, a member of First Finishers will always come and visit you at the location where the construction is to begin. We are always ready to consult with you about what will make your remodel or renovation project meets your expectations. We will discuss with you our step by step plan, cost estimates and also your comfort during construction.

There is absolutely no pressure, and we will answer your questions until you are satisfied to give us the go ahead. As one of the Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater areas leading remodeling general contractors, we can also connect with other experts such as architects and surveyors if and whenever needed.

Best of all, we can project manage the entire construction project from start to finish. When you choose First Finishers, there is no stress and no hassle. The only thing you get is a beautiful brand new remodel or renovation that you can enjoy for years to come.
