Whats the Best Season for Home Improvement Projects in Destin?

May 07, 2018

You may wonder what’s the best season for Destin home improvement projects.Some home projects are easy to schedule. You don’t want to put in new windows when it’s freezing outside. Nor do you want to insulate your attic when it’s sweltering outside.

Yet there are a lot of factors that go into choosing when to do your projects than just the weather. Choosing the right season to schedule home improvements can make your projects more successful, keep the project on track, and can even be easier on your wallet.

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

One of the most important things to consider is what the weather is like. Some projects are weather dependent, such as installing windows, building a porch, or putting in that new pool. Other projects that take place inside, such as installing window treatments or updating furniture, can be done any time of year. We can install shutters before your holiday party, after your newest renovation, in the middle of a lazy summer, or when the kids go back to school.

If you have a strict deadline and are paying contractors, ask them how the weather might affect your project and timeline.

Contractor Schedules

Almost every contractor has seasons like spring and summer that tend to be busier than other seasons. If you can schedule your project during their lighter season, they won’t be juggling as many customers and details are less likely to slip through the cracks.

Your Schedule

Some times of year can work better for your home renovations than others. If you have children in school, it might be smart to schedule your projects while school is in session and when your house is less crowded. Or if there’s a vacation in your future, it might be a good time to get your interior repainted to avoid the fumes.

Available Funds

If you’re paying your contractor in cash, then the best time of year to plan is after you have the money on hand. This might be after you’ve saved a little bit, received a large bonus or after you get your tax refund.

Most people start home improvement projects after they receive their tax refund in late winter or early spring, so remember that home improvement professionals may be busier during the spring and materials may be more expensive.

Other Projects On Your Schedule

It’s smart to keep a running list of renovations you want to do so that if projects depend on each other you can build a timeline. Try to schedule the biggest ones, like new flooring, and end with the smaller projects like window treatments or furniture.
