It’s easy to find reasons not to get around to that interior remodeling project you’ve been dreaming about. Spring and summer beg you to relax and enjoy some sunshine. Fall is crazy with back to school business. Winter time, other than the holidays, makes for the perfect time to tackle your big ideas.
Keep reading to find out all the pros of choosing winter for your dream project.
Interior Remodeling Contractor Availability
While contractors certainly work year round, they’re much less likely to have big outdoor projects going on when the temperatures drop. This means they’re more available than in the spring or summer for interior work. With less on their plates, it also means they’ll be able to get your work done faster.
Regardless of the sort of remodel you’re planning, manufacturers tend to lower their prices in the fall and winter. Demand rises in the spring, and with that means price hikes. Lumber, windows, and cabinets particularly tend to be less expensive in the fall.
September and October are the best times to purchase appliances. Most appliance manufacturers roll out new models just afterward and are often trying to reduce the inventory of older units in the fall.
Better Painting Conditions
Cooler weather can also mean the perfect time of year for painting your walls. Most varieties of paint like dry, relatively cool air for optimal drying. In the fall and winter, it’s cool enough to capitalize on these weather patterns.
Best Time for Roof and Window Work
What’s the worst time for a leak to spring in the roof? Or to discover that you have drafty windows? After it’s too late and the weather is freezing!
Loose or missing shingles can cause water to pool in the winter, leading to ice dams. That can become a big problem when the roof gives, creating a huge leak. Drafty windows can cause your heating bill to skyrocket in the winter, not to mention leave you shivering.
With this consideration, fall or early winter is the ideal time to check and repair both, before the cold really sets in and causes big problems. A stitch in time saves nine.
Faster Permit Approval
Government agencies tend to slow down in the fall and winter. If your interior remodeling project requires permits, they’ll be approved in the fall a lot quicker than in the spring or summer. In the warm seasons, agencies are inundated with permit requests for outdoor remodeling projects.
Perfect Excuse to Get Away
The cherry on top?
You’re probably freezing, and warm destinations await you. Save your vacation days for the winter, book your local contractor for your dream interior remodeling project, and head to warm weather!
When you come back, you’ll be well-rested and won’t have had to deal with any of the dust or fuss of an active remodeling project in your living space.
