You may wonder how is winter the best season to do the home renovation things? Well, the end of the season sales and low season for contractors may be very good examples.
Many people leave home renovation for spring and summer as they think that warmer seasons are better for these kinds of jobs. However, what they fail to see is that during winter, many contractors have less work and more time to do a good job on your home.
Additionally, the end of the year and holiday season offers many discounts and sales. So, if you’re going to do any renovations on the house, now is a good time.
So, why not try to do a couple of renovations during the winter months? Let’s see what kinds of renovations on your home are best done in winter.
Interior upgrades and remodels
You wanted to wait for spring to do all kinds of upgrades and remodeling inside your home? Winter is the ideal time to do all those interior upgrades that you wanted.
From painting to installing flooring, everything can be done in just under a month. You can have your home upgraded by the end of January and you won’t have to sacrifice your spring break for these kinds of things.
If you are planning to renovate your bathroom, as long as you have another available to use during the remodeling you are good. Bathroom reno can be pretty expensive so having it done during winter is ideal. The end of the season sales can reduce the costs quite a bit.
The same goes for the kitchen. If you’re having second thoughts, just think about how much you’ll increase the value of your house if you do these renovations.
Winter is the ideal time to finish that basement that is always put on the back burner. Finishing your basement can have a lot of benefits, from giving you more space to increase the value of your home.
Wintertime is ideal for those interior upgrades, and your basement is definitely one of those cases. Everything is done inside, plus this kind of construction doesn’t require you to leave the house in order to give room to constructors.
You have noticed certain problems with your roof but it’s winter and you’re not sure if the roof can be repaired now. And really can roof be done during winter months? The answer is yes, it can. As long as you’re aware of the weather conditions and all the risks, you can do all the repairs on the roof.
If you’re, for example, planning to install asphalt shingles on your roof this winter, you must know that the ideal temperature for installing them is between 4 and 26 degrees C (40 and 85 degrees F). Anything below this temperature makes the shingles brittle and more breakable.
Additionally, slippery roofs pose a serious safety risk, so this is another thing that needs to be factored in. Making a site inspection request is the best solution for these kinds of situations. A site inspection can be scheduled and arranged in no time and you can rest assured that you’re safe during any sort of roof repairs.
Insulate your house
House insulation is very important in order to prevent heat loss and to reduce heating bills. And winter is the ideal time to do this. Insulate your walls and replace windows, and you’ll see how much warmer your house will be this winter, plus your bills will be much lower.
Moreover, during summer, good insulation can help reduce the heat by blocking it from entering your house.
This kind of renovation is not all that exciting, but it will save you a lot of money.
Just like the basement, garage renovations during winter months are the ideal solution. You can clean up your garage pretty good during this time.
Add insulation on the garage walls, install the flooring you always wanted, change the garage doors. Also, do the smaller renovations like adding more storage and shelving, organize and declutter your garage. And by the time the spring comes, you’ll have a nice and clean garage.
Doing house renovations during winter months is possible. Moreover, it’s less expensive and more effective. You won’t have to sacrifice your spring or summer vacations to do all the renovation and remodeling of your house. Just be aware of the weather conditions if you’re doing outside renovations, and you’ll be all set.
