Are There Benefits To Remodeling During The Winter?
Regardless of the season, you want your home to feel comfortable, safe and inviting. After all, you work hard so that you can enjoy the time spent when you finally get home. Your home is where you spend so much time, and it is your castle.
So, making your house more comfortable and beautiful is exciting! However, many of us worry about the expense and all the time and effort it takes to complete these projects.
One of the best-kept home improvement secrets is to do remodeling – during the winter!
Yes, it is a little unusual to plan projects done on your house in the wintertime; usually, the remodeling is done in the spring or summer. Once the cold season begins, most people feel like they have to stay cooped up inside.
Let’s look at some advantages of doing renovations during the winter – they may just make you start planning some remodeling right away!
We already talked about spring and summer being the busiest time for home remodeling. Since so many people want the same thing at the same time, why not beat the rush by having your home remodeling done in the winter? You get a nice head start and achieve your goals sooner.
Typically, winter is the slow season for contractors. This is a benefit to you because they will have the time to begin your project earlier, and remain focused on a quick and efficient completion of your remodel. Additionally, when contractors have fewer projects to work on, they have more time to work on your home, so your projects may be completed earlier than planned.
Now, some people are concerned about remodeling in the winter because of the amount of fumes and dust that circulate around the house during remodeling projects.
There’s good news for this, too.
New technology and products used to control and contain any possible fumes, as well as to clean up after any messy projects – make it safe to do it without having to open windows. So, if you are to remodel during the winter, there’s no need to worry about having to inhale anything harmful.
Also, a lot of people like to take vacation during the winter and enjoy the mountains or escape to warmer climates. If you are going to be away from your home for any duration of the winter, it may be the perfect time to have some major work done on your house. That way, you escape the mess, noise and overall hassle of living in a home that’s undergoing remodeling.
Doesn’t it sound great that, by the time spring arrives – your home could have that great new addition you’ve been dreaming about or other beautiful renovations already completed?
So get your thinking hat on and start planning to improve your home; whether it’s fixing, repairing, or replacing something, or a total remodel of your house, get your contractor to start working on it during their slow season. You may be able to begin earlier, get the project done in less time, and – get a big thank you from your contractor for enhancing their down season.
