Should You Do Bathroom Renovations In Winter?

Bathrooms are often targeted during home renovations. This is not without cause. A good bathroom renovation can have a dramatic impact on your property. The renovation can add real value to your house, and it can turn your bathroom into a coveted retreat within your home. When thinking about your bathroom renovations, you may be tempted to wait until spring or summer. However, there are plenty of good reasons to think about planning a winter bathroom remodel. Here are the facts you need to know.

Your Scheduling Options Will Be Better In Winter

Most people do their home renovations in the spring and summer. This means that the best contractors are pretty busy during this time. Because of this, you may have trouble scheduling your bathroom renovation. You may have to delay the project for several months. Worse, the contractor may start and stop work on your project several times as other jobs come and go. If you do not want to mess with this scheduling nightmare, then avoid the busy season. Your contractor will be more likely to work on your schedule if you plan a winter remodel.

You Could Get Cheaper Prices On The Work

Because contractors often have less work in the winter, they may offer seasonal discounts. These seasonal discounts are used as an incentive to get more people to hire their services in the slower months. Considering the typical cost of bathroom renovations, such savings should not be glossed over. In fact, the winter rates can be an important way to stay under budget on your remodel. The rates will vary from contractor to contractor so be sure to talk to your preferred choice in advance. You may be pleasantly surprised by the potential savings.

You Can Optimize The Time For A Family Vacation

The main reason people do not want a winter renovation in their bathroom is the inconvenience. It is not easy to open your house up in the winter, and it is very inconvenient to have your water or heat shut off at critical times during the cold and wet season. However, it is very easy to turn this into a positive. Instead of staying home during your winter renovation, try scheduling a winter vacation instead. You will definitely enjoy getting away during the winter, and it will mean the work will be done when you get back.
