Winters can be long, harsh and dreary but they don’t have to be uninspiring! Winter is actually a great time to focus on your home. You may want to update or upgrade the interior or address repairs that you may have been putting off for some time. Some homeowners that we have worked with, have found that winter is the perfect time for home remodeling projects. If you’re finding that you need extra space, winter can be a great time to start a room addition or have a patio built in anticipation of the warmer weather ahead. If you’re thinking about a home improvement project, here are just five reasons why winter may be the best time to start your project with Hometown Roofing & Remodeling.
 

1. Convenient Project Scheduling and Contractor Availability

It is usually easier for contractors like Hometown Roofing & Remodeling to schedule work in winter months especially if painting, replacing flooring, updating lighting and plumbing work is involved because there is a lot less exterior work being done. This frees up our schedule for interior projects and during the winter you may find that we may have more time to work with you in planning and designing your project.
 

2. Avoiding Manufacturer Spring Price Increases

Now is the time to look for and take advantage of reduced prices. If you’re remodeling your home, you may find close-out prices on appliances and be able to purchase materials before manufacturer’s increase their prices come spring time. Typically, we experience price increases for lumber products, windows and cabinet lines in the spring. During the winter, manufacturers may feature special offers to reduce inventory as there is less demand.
 

3. Clean Up

While some homeowners will wait until spring to remodel because of concerns about dust, fumes and areas for staging the work, current technologies and clean up methods do a lot to control these problems. Fans with negative pressure, plastic zip doors, and sealing off heat ducts with a filter will contain dust, debris and fumes to the work area only.
 

4. Exterior Projects

If the weather cooperates, you may be able to work with us on outside projects to get ready for the warmer weather in spring. While we would not recommend exterior painting during the coldest days of winter, we have built decks, patios, porches and room additions for our customers during this time.
 

5. Vacation

If you are planning a vacation this winter, it may be an optimal time to have work done in your home to avoid disruption of your daily activities. Or if you are planning a vacation this spring or summer, now may be the best time to check those home repairs and improvements off your list!
