Whilst most people choose to renovate their homes during the warm summer months, surprisingly, a considerable number take the opportunity of doing so in winter.
A summer renovation means you’ll be less likely to suffer from bad weather. But there are benefits to a winter renovation too. Let’s take a look.
Easier booking and faster completion
Compared to the summer period builders and renovation companies are not as busy during winter, meaning they are more readily available to complete a project in a shorter time.
All of the necessary trades will have a much lighter workload in their schedules so you are likely to be able to book with your renovator of choice for a more immediate start. This greater capacity means they are more likely to be able to lock in and finish your project in a faster time than if they undertook the project during summer.
There’s also the financial benefit to booking a renovation during winter. Renovation companies may also offer discounts to ensure they maintain a reasonable pipeline of projects during the quieter months. No company wants to be employing trades to sit around doing nothing, so they may be more than willing to offer discounts and deals to keep them busy.
If you’re planning a winter getaway to warmer climates in the northern hemisphere, this is also a great chance to kill two birds with one stone and undertake your renovation whilst you’re away.
You’ll be out of the way of your renovators, as well as avoiding the disruption. So, you’ll come back after a relaxing break to a house that’s equally renewed and refreshed.
