You might not think of winter as a time to jump-start your outdoor home projects, but there are plenty of advantages to scheduling home improvements during the off-season.
Consider the prices of candy in the weeks leading up to Halloween. They’re much higher than they are the day after Halloween, right? That’s because prices usually increase when the product is in high demand. The same goes for products and services pertaining to home improvement!
During the busy season, contractors work to get as many jobs done as possible in order to make the most profit. Working with a home improvement company during the winter when they are slower means a few things: their pricing will be more reasonable, they will have more time to dedicate to your project, and they likely won’t feel as rushed during the planning and constructing phases, providing you with a better final product.
Why a Sunroom?
Decks are great for outdoor meals and entertainment during the summer, but what about the colder months? Winter has most of us cooped up inside by the fire, avoiding the outdoors at all costs. Instead of missing out on the beauty of the outdoors during the cold season, consider a sunroom!
- Allows you to experience the outdoors without being exposed to the cold and wintry weather
- Adds to the amount of living space your home offers
- Captures the warmth of the sun and allows for the use of natural light rather than electric lighting
- Increases to the overall value of your home and creates a selling point for potential buyers
- Great for hosting holiday parties and gatherings
Tips for Building a Sunroom this Winter:
- Consider how much privacy you’ll want in your sunroom and choose window sizes accordingly.
- Know what you will be using the room for before you begin the build (Relaxation? Dining? Entertaining?)
- Decide if you want the sunroom to be either enclosed or accessible from the outside of your home.
- Think about where you will put things like outlets and light fixtures
- Have a realistic understanding of how much space you have to build and tailor your design so that your sunroom will flow comfortably with the rest of your home
