Spring is a symbol of new beginnings, and is also an ideal time to start your home construction project. As it starts to get warmer, you may be wondering about your home extension you’ve been putting off for a while!
The weather is ideal during this season; the ground is dry, yet the air is still cool. However, it is not the only reason to get your project started. Here are five reasons why spring is the ideal time of year for your home construction project.
1 – The weather is ideal
Spring offers that perfect interface between winter and summer. With fewer weather-related delays, contractors can work more efficiently and your project can be completed faster than during other seasons. As we all know, the beginning of any project is key and can also be stressful for many, and by starting in Spring you can be confident that the weather will be one less thing you will have to worry about!
2 – You can get ahead on your contractor’s calendar
Planning ahead is vital to any project. The earlier you reach out to your contractor and get your project listed on their calendar, the earlier they can start. As most home builders will admit, things get very busy during the summer. If you wait until the summer, your project may get backlogged and could take months before any construction can begin so it’s ideal to beat the traffic.
3 – You’ll get a higher price for your home
If you’re renovating your home so that you can sell it, you’ll be able to sell your property at a higher price when your renovations are completed in spring. Newly renovated homes are appealing to potential buyers, so having the project done during this time can make your property stand out from the crowd in the market.
4 – You’ll allow more time for any delays
Starting your home project in Spring allows plenty of time to accommodate any delays which could occur throughout the build. There is also a good chance that the project will be complete before the cold winter weather approaches, and of course ready for hosting family and friends in during the winter holidays!
5 – You can get good deals on supplies
Often, showrooms offer huge discounts on items from the previous season, during their ‘end of winter’ sales. When you start your project in the spring, you can take advantage of those deals and save money on supplies.
There are many great reasons to start your home construction in the spring. There’s no reason why you should let this glorious season pass without starting on your home extension or reconfiguration.
Planning ahead is vital, and it can take up to a year before you can start on the build. So, now is the best time to start planning your extension! When you are ready for your home project, Pride Road Sutton & Kingston are here for you. Get in touch with us to learn more about our services.
