Spring is often the most popular time to start a renovation project. The weather is warmer, you don’t have to worry about snow and we’re all ready for a fresh new start.
But there are some definitive advantages to renovating during winter months:

Contractor Availability
During the winter, contractors have more time to work with you in planning and designing your project. Spring and Summer are usually the busiest times of year for home renovations. Take advantage of “off season” availability and get started on your next project.

Double Duty Vacation
Are you planning a vacation this winter? Get your home renovation done, while you’re away. You’ll come home to a completed project that didn’t interrupt your daily routine!

Winter renovations are not at the forefront for most’s minds, so you’re more likely to get incentives from manufacturers and contractors. You could even snag a good deal on appliances and building materials as they are often at reduced prices. Watch for appliance and furniture deals at great savings as part of retailers sales!

Ultimately, the best time for a renovation is when you’re fully ready to take on your home projects. For more advice on using the equity in your home to your advantage, please reach out to our Mortgage department at mortgage@gscu.org!
