WINTER AS THE IDEAL SEASON FOR HOME RENOVATION

WINTER AS THE IDEAL SEASON FOR HOME RENOVATION:

Winter is an excellent time to focus on your home and undertake updating the interior,     or addressing repairs you might have been putting off.   

It is usually easier for contractors to schedule work in winter months,   because there is usually a lot less exterior work being done.   More contractors might thus be able to schedule  interior projects such as painting,   replacing flooring,  updating lighting or  other renovations.   As we have been experiencing relatively drier winters,  even waterproofing projects and other exterior work  might be undertaken.

During the winter you may find that your contactor might have more time to work with you in planning and designing your project.  This would be a good time for refining the details before the work begins. This process may take longer as work picks up for your contractor in the spring with outdoor projects.    If you renovations include expanding some significant space,   or re-purposing some other space,   it may fall into the category that will require permits and inspections.   Getting your plan together now, and approved,   may allow you to get started  before the spring rush is upon your local  office.

Now is the time to look for and take advantage of possibly reduced prices.   If for example your kitchen remodel plan includes all new appliances,     the  quiet winter season may bring with it the opportunity to get excellent deals .
