If you’re thinking about making renovations to your home but are waiting until spring or summer because you think that’s the way it’s always done, think again. Renovating during the winter months can have enormous benefits that you may have not considered. Whether you want to add a new deck, remodel your patio, or create a new sunroom, there are five reasons why working with a remodeling contractor in winter is a great choice.
1. Easier Project Scheduling
The busiest time of year for home contractors is usually during the spring and summer when homeowners think it’s a good idea to take advantage of decks, patios, and other exterior improvements. This means renovators have extra time to take on projects for you, and they will usually be able to adapt to your unique schedule. For example, a contractor may be able to work on your project full time during normal business hours during winter, meaning they’ll be able to produce results in a minimal amount of time.
2. More Affordable Rates
According to the laws of supply and demand, lower demand for a product or service tends to produce lower prices, and the home renovation industry is no different. As home contractors get less work in winter, they’re likely to offer better deals on their services in order to stay afloat. This same phenomenon applies to the materials used on your project.
3. Extra Time
Ideally, you’d like to have every aspect of your project planned out before construction begins, but that’s not always possible. Winter is a time where cheaper prices and greater flexibility can give you the opportunity to implement a renovation that’s not completely planned. Extra time will be especially valuable if you’re making outdoor renovations that may be interrupted by bad weather.
4. Worker Comfort
With high humidity and relatively high temperatures, Maryland summers can be quite brutal for home contractors. This wet and warm weather, which can produce a lot of sweat and discomfort, is also the perfect time of year for insect swarms. Mosquitoes and other bugs can prevent contractors from working to their full potential. In winter, the bugs mostly go away and renovators can work peacefully in cool temperatures. While Maryland can get cold, there are usually several weeks where working outside is possible.
5. Take Advantage of a Warm Weather Vacation
A winter renovation offers the perfect opportunity for taking a vacation in a warmer climate. When you’re away, you don’t have to worry about the noise, debris, and disruptions from having workers in your home. If your project isn’t too large, Diamond Decks may even be able to finish your renovations while you’re gone so that you can come home to enjoy your wonderful new improvements.
