The Benefits of Scheduling Your Home Remodel This Winter
Spring and Summer are notoriously known as the most popular time of year for a home remodel. While there are a few times when it’s best to wait for warmer weather, winter could be the perfect time for your interior renovation project.
Save Money on Your Renovation Project
When the demand for materials is lower, so is the cost. We often see an increase in material prices in the spring. By starting your project in the winter, you can keep the costs down. There are also long-term savings to consider. By selecting the right energy-efficient products, you can save on water, heating, and energy bills.
Make Scheduling Easy
Along the same lines, scheduling a winter renovation is much easier. Because many people put off their renovation projects till the spring, winter projects are typically easier to schedule. Local municipalities also are usually less busy in winter, leading to quicker turn-around times on necessary permits. And if you have children, you might want to take advantage of a winter project while your kids are in school all day (rather than a home in the summer).
More Personal Attention
Another benefit of a winter renovation is the quality of work you can expect. You can rest assured that your project is receiving the contractor’s full attention and time. They are likely to be more accommodating of specific requests and details. And, you can also count on more face-to-face time with the contractor every step along the way.
So, what are some of the best interior remodeling projects to tackle this winter?
By remodeling your basement in the winter, you can get extra interior space during the winter months when cabin fever is at its worst. And, perhaps best of all, when the warmer months come, you’ll already have a comfortable, cool basement where you can retreat from the heat.
Remodeling in the winter is a great time to expose any preexisting problems like mold or mildew that are common in bathrooms and could end up costing you more in the long run. Our expert professionals can fix any underlying issues and prevent them from happening in the first place so that you can sleep soundly.
Winter is the perfect time to revamp the kitchen. We tend to prepare more indoor meals during the cooler months than over the warmer months when you might be dining out or grilling more often. Along with a finished basement, and a beautiful bathroom, updated kitchens improve the market value in your home. The timing couldn’t be better for homeowners looking to put their house on the market this spring (when home prices are at their peak). Even if you have no intention of selling your home, updating the kitchen is a great way to save on monthly utility bills.
Not only does a winter renovation make economic sense, but also, it can help to brighten those dreary winter days. Getting a fresh new look for your bathroom or kitchen can be just the boost you need to fight back the winter blues. And, when others are just starting to think about scheduling their renovations, you’ll already be enjoying your new space.
