Home Renovations at the Beginning of the Year

Renovating in January

Renovating a room or area of your home is a great way to raise your property’s value. It can even drive up the value for your entire neighborhood. The first thing you’ll have to do is plan the renovation. Are you going to use a contractor or are you going to do the work yourself? Remember, some times are better than others for different phases of jobs, as well as for cost-savings. So, what about getting a fresh start on your renovation project at the beginning of the year?

Before you know it, it will be 2020. The Climate in Colorado in January can be extremely cold with snow flurries and dreary overcast skies. You’d think that starting a project during this time would be a mistake, but that’s not necessarily the case for every type of project. Despite the thought of working outside in the cold winter months, this is actually a good time to start an addition. Frozen ground and dry air are better for digging foundations and pouring concrete footers than muddy ground and humidity. Of course this means that you’ll have to keep the snow out of the area so that when it melts it doesn’t make the ground wet.

If your foundation is completed and the room addition is framed before the snow melts, the space can be under cover during the unpredictable spring weather. In addition, the winter months tend to be less busy for builders, because everyone is waiting for spring and tax refunds to start their home projects.  If you are looking for qualified contractors in Colorado, contact the Eibner team today and let us tell you about the people we’ve worked with in the past. Rethinking your renovation? Want to sell instead? We can help with that too! Give Mark a call today.
