Winter can actually be the perfect time to undertake home renovations to your home or business. You may have been putting some of these projects off, but during the colder months costs will probably be lower and contractors will not be as busy, so why not get them completed now?
Here are three winter renovations you may want to consider:
If the cold weather is causing you to think that your spaces probably need better insulation, there’s no better time than now to have it added. Improper insulation can cause high utility bills and a colder home or office space. You can tackle this renovation on your own or hire a professional to do it for you.
Add a Room
An unfinished basement can be turned into a more functional space at this time, and you can add additional storage or living space. A renovation that adds more space is always a worthwhile investment, and will substantially increase the value of your property in most cases. The cold, dry air is ideal for digging foundations if you are planning on a brand-new addition. This is a significant project, but if done correctly, it can add a big increase to your home’s value.
A bathroom re-do is a great task for winter since it’s indoors. As long as you are able to keep the space warm, you will be able to replace fixtures, update caulking and sealing, and even add fresh paint or flooring. This is the room in your home or business that sees the most traffic each and every day, so chances are it needs some attention. Small leaks and cracks in pipes can create issues in a matter of minutes, so it never hurts to keep your bathroom in tiptop shape year-round. Don’t put it off any longer!
Cold weather often makes for great building conditions and winter is the slow season for many builders. Make sure to consider these three renovations if you’re thinking about remodeling your home this year, and give us a call here at Ascension General Contractors to get started.
