Basement renos or basement finishes are going on all year round, there is no “cold weather” that can delay such a type of project. Some homeowners believe that during the winter they can achieve a better price but in fact it’s not exactly true. If you can find a small contractor who has no running project during the winter, in most of the cases it’s a sign of a new contractor who has low experience; or someone who’s reputation prevents him or her from acquiring new contracts.

So when is the best time to finish your basement? Anytime of the year, when you plan not to be at home. Try to hire a renovation team when you are going on vacation; and if you hire a company in advance, you really have the opportunity to negotiate the price, since basement reno teams like to book all projects for a few months in the future.
