Most people think of summer as the remodeling season, but winter offers a lot of advantages. Though it can be tough to do some renovation jobs in winter, for those you can do there are some distinct advantages.
Why You Should Remodel for the Winter
Even though winter isn’t a time you usually consider for remodeling, it does offer some valuable advantages over other seasonal remodels.
- Off-season discounts and lower prices
- Greater contractor availability due to lack of demand
- Faster permit approvals because of low activity
- Less inconveniences from work or school
Winter is the perfect time for certain renovations and remodels for your home.
Though you may not be able to repaint the outside of your house, you can always give your home’s interior walls a fresh coat of paint. With most people away from home, it’s the perfect time for indoor repainting. Plus, you can add some vibrant color to mitigate the winter blues. Just remember to keep your window open to keep the area well ventilated.
Replacing the Floor
Another renovation project that you can prioritize during the winter is replacing your floor. Do you seek the warmth of carpet? Do you prefer the convenience and flexibility of a hardwood floor? Use this low activity time to replace the floor at your convenience.
Bathroom and Kitchen
If your home will not receive as many visitors during this time, you can also tackle some of the bigger, more ambitious projects, such as bathroom and kitchen remodels. You will appreciate the work done on them when you’re indoors most of the time. If you do anticipate visitors or a scheduled event for the winter, make sure to schedule your professional remodeling crew long before the event.
