Winter and remodeling a home are generally not mentioned in the same sentence. But, surprise! It is the perfect season to find a reason to update the room of your dreams.
Spring leaves us all with the energy and desire to spring ahead and do a little remodeling. If you wait a tad longer, the most gifted and trained carpenters, plumbers, and electricians are easily contacted and booked. The spring and summer are their busiest seasons. Winter allows you quality work without the wait.
The best of contractors are sometimes booked a year in advance. With a winter plan to remodel, it is more likely that you will find someone that will do a professional job and without the time constraints that the other seasons provide.
Latest Trends at Lowest Prices
Businesses do their inventory towards the end of every year. You can find trendy stock and lower prices during the winter. The cost of labor does not feel as strenuous when the prices for the latest countertops and flooring is at an all year low.
Appliances are at the top of people's Black Friday list. It is true that the best deals on a sleek fridge or self-cleaning dishwasher are easier to find in the winter. The season allows for taking your time and doing the research to create the perfect space you envision.
Making Insulation Easier
Throughout the year we feel a breeze here or a wisp of air there, but we cannot pinpoint where it is coming from as winter approaches. Winter is a perfect time for the project if the remodel includes new insulation. The ability to find those windows that need sealing or a wall requiring a revamp is much easier when you can feel the winter's chill in a warm home.
The weather outside makes contractors' work far more comfortable. Cost of labor is sometimes a huge reason why people bypass a wanted or needed remodeling. But, when it is cold outside, contractors work faster and more efficiently without sweat rolling down their neck.
Everyone loves a good spring sprucing, but how about a winter wonderland, instead?
