The Best Season for St. George Home Improvement?

May 07, 2018

You might wonder what’s the best season for St. George home improvement projects.Some home improvement projects are easy to schedule. It’s not a great idea to install windows when it’s snowing outside. Similarly you don’t want to add insulation to your attic when it’s blazing hot.

But there are more factors to choosing when to schedule projects than just the weather. Choosing the right time to schedule home improvements can make your projects more successful, keep the project on track, and may even be easier on your wallet.

Things to Consider when Choosing the Time of Year for Home Improvement Projects

One of the most important things to take into account is what the weather is like. Some home improvements will be easier or harder depending on the weather, like installing windows, putting together a porch, or putting in that new pool. Home improvements that you do inside, like putting in window treatments or updating furniture, can be done any time of year. Sunburst can install shutters before your holiday party, after your garage sale, in the middle of a sweltering summer, or any other time of year.

If you’re on a strict deadline and are working with contractors, communicate with them how the climate may affect your project and timeline.

Contractor Schedules

Most contractors have seasons like spring and summer that tend to be busier than the rest of the year. If you can schedule your project outside of their busy season, they won’t be managing as many customers and details are less likely to be neglected.

Your Schedule

Certain parts of the year may be better for your home renovations than others. If you have kids in school, it might be smart to schedule your projects while school is in session and when your house is a little more empty. Or if there’s a vacation in your future, it could be a decent time to get your interior repainted to avoid the fumes.

Your Budget

If you’re paying cash for your home improvement, then the best time of year for a project is after you have the funds. This could be after you’ve saved a little bit, received a large bonus or when your tax refund comes in.

Several homeowners begin their projects after they receive their tax refund around March or April, so remember that home improvement professionals might have a busier schedule during the spring and materials may be more expensive.

Other Projects You Have

It’s good to keep a tab of projects you want to get done so that if they need to be done in a certain order you can build a timeline. Try to schedule the major work first, like new floors, and end with the smaller projects such as window treatments or furniture.
