5 Reasons Why Winter is a Good Time for Home Improvement Projects
When you live in Wisconsin, it’s common for homeowners to plan projects around the seasons. And, it’s widely known that construction picks up in spring, however, there are plenty of reasons to begin your home improvement projects before the ice begins to melt.
1. Project Scheduling Can Be More Convenient
Home improvement may not be top of mind during the cold winter months but January through March can actually be the ideal time to begin your home improvement project. For contractors, business typically slows down during this time of year as fewer job bids are being presented. This may mean faster scheduling and quicker turnaround time for you. You may also get more individualized attention since many builders aren’t juggling as many projects.
2. Product Prices May Be Lower
Winter is a great time to take advantage of low prices and discount products. As the year comes to an end, many manufacturers run special offers to liquidate their inventory from previous seasons and reduce their existing stock in order to make room for products in the upcoming year.
3. No Need to Worry About Clean Up
Concerns of dust, fumes, and work areas with limited ventilation or space may cause some homeowners to wait until spring to remodel; however, current technologies and clean-up methods exist to control these problems. Fans with negative pressure, strip doors and curtains, and sealed heat ducts can help contain dust and filter debris in construction areas.
4. Approvals for Build Permits May Be Easier to Obtain
Government agencies can be less busy in winter, which allows contractors to obtain necessary permits quicker. The sooner your contractor obtains the proper permits, the sooner they can begin working on your home.
5. You Can Plan Your Projects Around Vacations
If the reasons above aren’t enough to persuade you to get a head start on your home improvement project, the thought of leaving for a relaxing family vacation and coming back to an updated, new room or space should be the incentive needed to schedule your renovation project.
