Whats the Best Time of Year for Home Improvement in Hartford?
You may wonder what’s the best time of year for Hartford home improvement projects.Some home projects are easy to know when to do. You don’t want to install windows when it’s cold outside. Similarly you don’t want to add insulation to your attic when it’s blazing hot.
But there are a lot of factors that go into choosing what time of year to do your projects than just the weather. Picking the right season to schedule home improvements can make the final product look better, keep the project on track, and can even be easier on your wallet.
What to Consider when Scheduling Home Improvement Projects
The first thing to consider is the season you’re in and the weather outside. Some home improvement projects will be easier or harder depending on the weather, such as putting in new windows, building a deck, or putting in that new pool. Other projects that take place inside, like putting in window treatments or updating furniture, can be scheduled for all year long. Sunburst can install shutters before your holiday party, after your garage sale, in the middle of a hot summer, or during back to school season.
If you’re on a tight deadline and are paying contractors, communicate with them how the weather could affect your project and timeline.
Almost every contractor has seasons like spring and summer that tend to be busier than others. If you can schedule your project outside of their busy season, they won’t be juggling as many customers and they can dedicate their full attention to your work.
Some parts of the year might work better for your home renovations than others. If you have children in school, you may want to schedule renovations during the school year when your house is less crowded. Or if you’re taking a week-long vacation, it might be a good time to get your interior repainted to avoid the fumes.
If you’re paying cash for your home improvement, then the best time of year to plan is after you have the money on hand. This could be after you’ve saved up enough money, received a bonus at work or after you get your tax refund.
Several families schedule their projects for after they receive their tax refund around the beginning of spring, so know that contractors might have a busier schedule during the spring and materials may be more expensive.
Other Projects You Have
It’s smart to keep a tab of renovations you want to get done so that if projects depend on each other you can put together a schedule. Try to plan out the big projects, like new flooring, and end with the smaller projects such as window treatments or furniture.
