Five Reasons Why You Should Renovate Your North London Property During The Winter
A common misconception is that it is better to plan home renovations during the Summer, rather than other parts of the year. Although certain tasks, such as paving a driveway or inspecting a roof, require conditions that are specific to warmer weather, in many cases renovating during the Winter can prove to be a good option. Here are five reasons why you should plan your renovation projects in the Winter.
Contractors have more availability
You will probably be quoted with more competitive prices, simply due to the fact that contractors are looking for work and are willing to work for reasonable rates in order to sign more contractors. The same could be said for construction materials and other products with stores offering great sales prices, and if you shop well, you will probably find what you are looking for at a reduced price.
Equipment and planning
North London contractors that work during the Winter own special equipment to keep the property clean during the renovation process, as well as after. This despite the fact that Winter attracts a lot of dirt. In actuality, Winter and Summer both product approximately the same amount of dust and dirt, but equipment that is made especially for the Winter has the added value of being able to send the dust outside, regardless of the weather conditions.
Protecting Against The Elements
In order to avoid any cold air entering the house, the workers will install protective sheets that will cut any air currents, so you don’t have to worry about being cold during the renovation process. Winter weather can actually be used as an advantage, both for the room temperature and the humidity level. Among other things, it will be possible to choose the amount of humidity and the temperature to make paint dry fasters.
Avoiding Manufacturer Spring Price Increases
Typical price increases for wood, windows and cabinet lines happen in Spring. During the winter, manufacturers may feature special offers to reduce inventory, so save money here.
Planning Approvals Government agencies are usually less busy in Winter months, which makes it easier and quicker to obtain necessary planning permissions
