Is it ever going to stop snowing?! Well, it’s only February and that means probably not for another month or two. On Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring, but if you've lived here more than a couple of years, you know that means at least 6 more weeks of winter. Maybe you’ve found yourself watching the swirling snowflakes and thinking that those remodeling projects you wanted to do this spring still seem a long ways off. But wait – did you ever think that MN remodeling contractors can do exterior remodeling on your home even in the winter months? Yes, here at Quarve, our exterior remodeling crews work year round - even in the winter. In fact, winter can be a great time to get your home improvement projects underway. Why Remodel in Winter? Yes, most people like to get their homes remodeled during the warmer summer months, but let’s take a look at the advantages of remodeling during the winter.
- When it comes to home improvements, many people are concerned about the amount of time required to complete a large project, as no one likes living in a home that’s torn apart. Spring and summer are the busiest times for contractors, and due to the high volume of work, finishing your project will inevitably take longer. However, the winter schedule isn't so busy - you can avoid getting stuck in springtime “rush-hour traffic.”
- Maybe you’re concerned about all the construction dust and paint fumes since your house is closed up in the winter. But with all the technology and supplies of today, contractors are able to contain and clean up after messy work without having to open windows. Don’t worry; you won’t have to inhale anything you don’t want to.
- Your contractor may give you a discount if you hire him in the winter. With fewer projects to work on, your contractor may be willing to work for a lower price. You may actually be doing him a favor by keeping him in business during the slow months.
- During the summer people are more likely to stay around home because of local activities, but prefer to escape to a warmer climate as that -30° wind chill starts flying in. If you’re going to be gone for a time this winter, wouldn’t that be the perfect time to have some major construction done on your home? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to return in the spring to a beautiful new addition or other large repair?
