Whats the Best Season for Home Improvement in Denver?

May 07, 2018

You might wonder what’s the best season for Denver home improvement projects.Some home projects are easy to know when to do. It’s not a great idea to put in new windows when it’s freezing outdoors. Similarly you don’t want to add insulation to your attic in the blazing heat.

But there are a lot of factors to choosing what time of year to do your projects than just the weather. Choosing the right time of year to schedule home improvements can make the final product look better, keep you on schedule, and can even save you some money.

Things to Consider when Scheduling Home Improvement Projects

Weather

The first thing to consider is the climate you’re in and the weather outside. Some home improvement projects will be easier or harder depending on the weather, such as installing windows, putting together a porch, or putting in that new pool. Projects inside the home, like putting in window treatments or replacing furniture, can be scheduled for any time of year. Sunburst can put in shutters before your holiday party, after your spring cleaning, in the middle of a hot summer, or during back to school season.

If you’re on a tight deadline and are working with contractors, communicate with them how the weather can affect your project and timeline.

Contractor Schedules

Most contractors have seasons like spring and summer that tend to be busier than other seasons. If you can start working with a contractor during their lighter season, they won’t be handling as many customers and they can dedicate their full attention to your work.

Your Schedule

Some times of year can work better for your projects others. If you have children in school, it might be smart to schedule your projects during the school year when your house is less busy. Or if you’re taking a week-long vacation, it could be a good time to get your interior repainted to avoid the fumes.

Your Budget

If you’re paying your contractor in cash, then the best time of year for a project is after you have the funds. This might be after you’ve saved a little bit, received a bonus at work or after you get your tax refund.

Many families schedule their projects for after they get their tax refund around the beginning of spring, so know that contractors may be busier during the spring and materials may be more expensive.

Other Projects You’re Planning

It’s good to keep a running list of renovations you want to do so that if they need to be done in a certain order you can put together a schedule. Try to schedule the biggest ones, like new flooring, and put the smaller ones at the end like window treatments or furniture.
