Whats the Best Season for Home Improvement in Dallas?

May 07, 2018

You may wonder what’s the best season for Dallas home improvement projects.Some home improvement projects are easy to schedule. You don’t want to install windows when it’s snowing outside. Nor do you want to insulate your attic in the middle of summer.

Yet there are more factors to choosing what time of year to schedule projects than just the weather. Choosing the right time to start home improvements can make your projects more successful, keep you on schedule, and may even be easier on your wallet.

What to Consider when Scheduling Home Improvement Projects

Weather

The first thing to take into account is what the weather is like. Some home improvement projects will be easier or harder depending on the weather, such as replacing windows, building a porch, or putting in a pool. Home improvements that you do inside, such as putting in window treatments or replacing furniture, can be scheduled for all year long. Sunburst can install shutters before your Christmas party, after your newest renovation, in the middle of a sweltering summer, or during back to school season.

If you’re on a strict deadline and are paying contractors, consult with them how the climate can affect your project and timeline.

Contractor Schedules

Almost every contractor has seasons like spring and summer which are busier than the rest of the year. If you can start working with a contractor during their lighter season, they won’t be managing as many customers and they can dedicate their full attention to your work.

Your Schedule

Some times of year can work better for your home improvements others. If you have children in school, it can help to schedule your projects during the school year when your house is a little more empty. 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 to plan is after you have the funds. This could be after you’ve saved up enough money, received a large bonus or after you get your tax refund.

Several people start home improvement projects after they get their tax refund in late winter or early spring, so remember that home improvement professionals might have a busier schedule during the spring and materials may be more expensive.

Other Projects You Have

It’s good to keep a running list of projects you want to get done so that if projects depend on each other you can put together a schedule. Try to schedule the biggest ones, such as new floors, and end with the smaller projects like window treatments or furniture.
