Any home remodeling project is an exciting change, but it can also be a stressful time for homeowners. Some remodeling projects can be costly or take a much longer time than you originally thought. One of the best tips for staying in your budget and timeframe is to avoid the busy seasons of spring and summer, and remodel your home in the winter! Continue reading for a few great benefits you may not know about remodeling in the winter.
Remodeling in the winter may seem a little odd to you, as some people are unaware that it is even possible to remodel this time of year. Winter is the slow season for contractors, but that means that you have less competition! As contractors don’t have as many projects going on, your remodel will have a higher chance of being completed quickly, and you may even get a better deal on the price. It can make a huge difference to have your contractor’s full attention, rather than being one of 20 remodeling jobs they are working on at the same time.
It isn’t just the contractor’s price that increases in the warm months; manufacturers are also aware that the majority of remodels happen in the spring and summer. They will typically release a new product line or upgrade their wares at the start of the spring for the influx of projects. Spring home maintenance shows also introduce the latest technologies- for full price. However, if you wait until the winter, you are much more likely to find a good deal on products and find sales on last year’s models that are still on trend!
Multiple Projects at Once
Since your contractor has more time to focus on your remodeling project, the winter is also a good time to bring up other small jobs inside or outside your home. Don’t be afraid to ask your contractor about additional projects you’ve been putting off for a while- this is the only season that they may have some extra time! While it is cold outside, you can also ask about outdoor work such as a new deck or sunroom. While outdoor projects can’t be completed during a snowstorm, a few clear weeks will be perfect for finishing a job you’ve been putting off. Most contractors prefer working in the cold rather than the sweltering hot anyway!
