The Best Season for Orlando Home Improvement?

May 07, 2018

You might wonder what’s the best time of year for Orlando home improvement projects.Some home projects are easy to know when to do. You don’t want to replace your windows when it’s snowing outside. Nor do you want to add insulation to your attic when it’s sweltering outside.

Yet there are a lot of factors that go into choosing what time of year to do your projects than just the weather. Choosing the right season to schedule home improvements can make your projects more successful, keep you on your timeline, and can even help your budget.

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

Weather

The first thing to take into account is what the weather is like. Some home improvements are weather dependent, such as putting in new windows, building a deck, or putting in a pool. Home improvements that you do inside, like putting in window treatments or cycling out furniture, can be scheduled for virtually any time. We can install shutters before your holiday party, after your garage sale, in the middle of a lazy summer, or during back to school season.

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

Contractor Schedules

Any contractor will have seasons like spring and summer which are busier than the rest of the year. If you can schedule your project outside of their busy season, they won’t be handling as many customers and details are less likely to be neglected.

Your Schedule

Certain parts of the year might be better for your projects others. If you have children in school, you may want to schedule renovations while school is in session and when your house is a little more empty. Or if you have a vacation planned, it might be a good time to get your ducts cleaned 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 funds. This could be after you’ve saved up enough money, received a bonus at work or when your tax refund comes in.

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

Other Projects You Have

It’s smart to keep a tab of projects you want to complete so that if projects depend on each other you can build a timeline. Try to schedule the biggest ones, like new floors, and end with the smaller projects such as window treatments or furniture.
