Renovating Properly

A lot of us don’t think about home renovation, especially during the cold winter months. Renovating your home doesn’t mean tearing an outer wall out and have the freezing weather come indoors, there are several home renovations that you can do to the interior of your home and stay warm. Winter can be the perfect time to start a home remodeling project!

Spend time finishing your basement to add extra living space for your family to enjoy, or maybe you want to update your kitchen. Remodeling or renovating your home this winter can be beneficial in so many ways, here are 6 reasons why winter may be the best time to start your next project:

  1. Project Scheduling

During the winter months’ contractors are not nearly as busy as they would be during spring and summer, so the chances of getting your project started sooner and finished that much quicker are much greater than if you were to wait for spring or summer.

  1. Contractor Availability

During the winter your contractor will have more time to work with you to help get the best design and quality work that you are looking for. This process may take longer come spring and summer as your contractor starts to pick up more work.

  1. Saves you Money

During the winter months’ manufacturers will lower their prices to encourage sales, so take advantage of the reduced prices and get a great new update for less then your neighbors would spend during the warmer months.

  1. Dust, Debris, & Fumes

A lot of homeowners don’t want to take on a winter renovation because they are worried about all the dust and debris that can linger in the air, especially if they have children. With today’s technologies you won’t need to worry, fan’s with negative pressure, plastic zip doors and sealing off heat ducts with a filter can keep all the dust, debris & fumes contained within the working area.

  1. Permits

The government is usually less busy during the winter months. This will make it much easier for your contractors to get permits approved faster, helping you finish your project that much sooner.

  1. Take a Vacation

Plan a vacation, or if you already have one planned take the opportunity to have the work done while you’re away. This will be more productive for the contractors and allow you to enjoy some time away and not having your daily activities be interrupted.
