The Best Time of Year for Las Vegas Home Improvement Projects?05/07/2018Darik Neilson You may wonder what’s the best time of year for Las Vegas home improvement projects. Some home improvement projects are easy to schedule. It’s not a great idea to replace your windows when it’s freezing outside. Similarly you don’t want to add insulation to 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 of year to do certain home improvements can make the final product look better, keep you on your timeline, and can even be easier on your wallet. Things to Consider when Scheduling Home Projects Weather One of the first things to take into account is the season you’re in and the weather outside. Some home improvements are weather dependent, like replacing windows, putting together a deck, or putting in that new pool. Projects inside the home, such as putting in window treatments or cycling out furniture, can be scheduled for any time of year. We can put in shutters before your holiday party, after your spring cleaning, in the middle of a blazing summer, or when the kids go back to school. If you’re on a tight deadline and are paying contractors, consult with them how the climate can affect your project and timeline. Contractor Schedules Most contractors have seasons like spring and summer which are busier than the rest of the year. If you can start working with a contractor outside of their busy season, they won’t be handling as many customers and details are less likely to slip through the cracks. Your Schedule Some parts of the year may work better for your projects others. If you have children in school, you may want to schedule renovations during the school year when your house is less crowded. Or if you have a vacation planned, it could be a decent time to get your interior repainted to avoid the fumes. Available Funds If you’re paying cash for your home improvement, then the best time of year for a project is after you have the funds. This might be after you’ve saved up enough money, received a large bonus or after you get your tax refund. Many families schedule their projects for after they receive their tax refund in late winter or early spring, so remember that home improvement professionals 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 complete so that if they need to be done in a certain order you can build a timeline. Try to schedule the major work first, such as new flooring, and finish up with the details such as window treatments or furniture.
