Lindus Construction, a general contracting company in Baldwin, Wisconson, noted hiring a contractor in the colder months could be beneficial.
With fewer full schedules due to lack of exterior work, you’ll reap the benefits with virtually no wait time for an estimate and project installation. The same can’t be said for the summer months — that’s when contractors are booked with renovations.
Since the wintertime is a slow period, materials may be more inexpensive, according to Angie’s List. Home upgrade resource website Modernize reported that many contractors will offer discounts and specials to entice homeowners to take them up for business, too.
Take advantage of timing
Usually, people enjoy traveling for the holidays. If you decide to have a getaway, it may be an ideal time to make changes around the house.
“If you’re traveling or have a busy social schedule during the holidays, you may be able to do without a kitchen for a few weeks,” Katherine Jones, director of general contractors at contractor search service Sweeten told House Method.
