Starting a renovation project at the beginning of the year may or may not be your best option, depending on the type of job you’re planning to undergo. That means you’ll have to get through the snowy Colorado months first. Projects that start in the middle of the year—May through August—are usually easier in regards to weather, but there is a big caveat too. This is the busiest time for most builders, so it’s probably when you’ll pay the most money for their time and for materials. If you have any questions about how this works, refer to our article on supply and demand.
Despite the up-charges in labor and materials, spring is traditionally home building season, not only because consumers are finding the money to do projects, but also because it’s the time we start to come out of winter hibernation and want something new. Projects like decks, patios and outdoor rooms are good to plan for this time frame. Decks require hand-digging, and the ground is usually softer in the spring. In addition, the homeowner will be able to enjoy the deck and outdoor space in the coming summer and fall months. With your new deck you can enjoy the sound of your kids playing, play a game of catch with your dog from a comfortable deck chair, or just listen to the birds and watch the Colorado squirrels run along the top of your fencing.
