3 Reasons to Renovate in Winter (Yes, It Can Be Done!)

patio remodelingWinter weather can be harsh and can occasionally wreak havoc on your home. But do you really need to wait until spring or summer to tackle your next home remodeling project? Winter can actually be an excellent time to get started on certain types of renovations. Depending on where you live, it may not always be the ideal time to get started on patio remodeling. But you can begin thinking about your backyard design ideas or even build a deck or porch during this time of year. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean these projects are a no-go. Here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t dismiss the idea of working with a home improvement contractor this winter:

  • Better availability
    Because it’s usually a slower season, your contractor will have a more open schedule to take on your project in the wintertime. If you have a large-scale job, this would probably be a good time to get started. And if you want to start thinking about backyard remodeling or patio remodeling early, your contractor will likely have more time to spend with you on the finer details before work actually begins. This can be a way to get exactly what you want in a time frame that suits your needs.
  • Better prices
    Prices on products tend to soar in the springtime, but manufacturers often offer deep discounts in the winter. That makes it the perfect time to buy anything from appliances to lumber. Who wouldn’t want to obtain the same high-quality product for less money?
  • Faster permit approvals
    If you need to get a permit in order to expand your backyard or patio remodeling plans, the process is usually a lot speedier in the wintertime. Like contractors, these government agencies are less busy during these months, so you won’t have to wait as long to obtain a permit and get started on your project.
