19 Feb Renovation Projects in the Spring – Should You Take a Rain Check
The weather is getting nicer, which may have you contemplating cosmetic changes to your home, like a deck or patio addition, landscaping renovation, or a kitchen remodel for accommodating more guests.
Whether you’re considering renovation for yourself, or to increase your home’s value before selling, you may be apprehensive about a spring start. There’s no denying it – ‘April showers’ can and will get in the way of some projects, but should you choose to take a renovation rain check through the entirety of the rainy season?
It all really depends on the project at hand. In most cases, it’s a good idea to schedule your remodel or renovation a month or two before or after everyone else will be clamoring for the same service. For example: window replacements are typically summer projects, so why not get this renovation in the books in early spring to miss the rush? Also that deck you’re dreaming of will need to be thoroughly planned before construction, so why don’t you reach out to a deck maker earlier in the year so your addition is the only project he or she is designing?
What about a landscaping renovation?
Landscapers get the bulk of their business in the spring and summer months, but the best time to begin a landscaping renovation is in the spring. Planting trees, shrubs and perennials in April and May give them the opportunity to grow strong and prepare for acclimation in the summer and fall.
Are you just about ready to burst out of hibernation and get social again? Remodeling your kitchen in the early spring might be just what you and your family need to inspire dinner parties and get-togethers. The typical kitchen remodel takes between four and six weeks (not including the design phase), so starting the renovation in the early spring will have you ready to entertain when the long days of summer roll in.
Remember, if your renovation aspirations are brought on by a need to sell, you do have other options. Home investors like Core Properties will provide you cash for your home so you can move forward with your life…without the added stress of a hefty remodel.
