Snowflakes are still falling, schools are closing due to the winter weather. Who’s had enough of it already?  It has become treacherous to get to and from work or anywhere else for that matter.   Some of you may be thinking, “Home renovation, now? Yeah right!”  Here are four reasons why, NOW, is the perfect time to start planning your 2019 home renovations.

  1. Late winter can be perfect time for new home construction or a remodel project.  Since supply and demand are a important factor, you can be more choosy in finding the best builder in your area. Builders are often more accessible late winter, therefore homeowners can benefit from the contractor’s increased flexibility.   It is a good idea to make the call to begin the planning of your home renovation project ten to twelve weeks in advance to give enough time to plan for scope of work and plan development.  Are you envisioning sipping your favorite drink in that beautiful new screen porch with an attached outdoor deck?  Allow your builder to begin drawing plans late winter,  so you can enjoy it during Minnesota’s three warmer seasons.
  2.  With contractor availability in mind, you may also profit from better deals on materials.   Spring price increases will naturally occur due to supply and demand.  Many showrooms offer deals at the end of winter to get rid of the previous season’s stock. Starting your project now could land you some good deals and save you money on the supplies you need for your project. As a result you’ll have extra cash for some fabulous furniture!
  3. Starting your new home construction or renovation project late winter also provides you the opportunity to have contractors look at other issues you may be having with your home.  You can have your contractor survey your property after this harsh winter.  Roofs, decks, windows, these are all things to consider when you are looking at home renovations.  Relying on a company like Tice-Hause Design Build to give their expert advice on what should be addressed now can save you time and money in the long run.
  4. Finally, with the holidays behind us, the New Year begun, and Spring cleaning approaching, now is the perfect time to start your new home construction or renovation project. Many homeowners find themselves putting  new builds or remodels off because summer schedules can get very busy. Whether its endless sporting activities, travel plans, or simply trying to take advantage of every ray of sunshine, summers can be an overwhelming time of year to try to renovate your home.  While you are home and hunkered down, now is the time to call Tice-Hause Design Build to get this years new home construction or renovation project underway.  They welcome projects any time of the year and off season is no exception.
