While it is hard to picture the sunny weather when we’re in the middle of the snowy months, right now is the best time to start thinking about your summer renovation projects. Being ahead of the curve can mean a myriad of advantages coming your way! Let’s talk about why you should start planning your summer renos now!
The name of the game is preparation here. By starting planning now, you’re able to do the research needed to find both what you want to renovate, and the right contractor to do it. You’ve got ample time to reach out to several contractors to get quotes, learn about their history, and check out their online reviews to make sure they meet your needs!
Starting planning now can also help your budget. First, you have more time to save up the funds that you need. Second, the earlier in the year that you book your materials, the greater a saving you may find. The closer you get to the busy season, the more that materials may end up costing you!
Bureaucracy can move slow, which means that the sooner you start applying for permits, the better of a chance you have them in time to get your work going. All kinds of renovations can require permits, so starting now lets you do the research and have everything ready!
The more time between the start of your planning and when the work gets done allows you to maintain flexibility. Things can change, you might change your mind on certain things, but giving yourself a season’s leeway allows this to happen without too much-added stress.
Renos can have a serious effect on your day-to-day life. By planning well in advance, you can help keep those effects to a minimum. For example, not having a kitchen can be a big deal, especially if the renovation is planned to take some time. Planning in advance can allow you to deal with these problems before they arise.
