With the kids returning to school, and several holidays approaching, you might get the itch this fall to do some renovations to improve your home. If you find yourself considering hiring a contractor to complete your fall projects, you’re not alone! Fall is a great time to complete home renovations because the temperature is mild, kids are back in school, and the demand for renovations has gone down from the summer. Before you begin with your home renovation, however, it’s important to consider a few things: here are some of our best tips for your fall renovations.
Start Sooner As Opposed To Later
In Canada, we tend to have short autumns and long, unforgiving winters. One of our most helpful tips for your fall renovations is to begin as soon as possible. September and October both tend to be quite mild and comfortable seasons (with the exception of the occasional rainstorm), and choosing to do your renovations when it’s the weather is calm can significantly improve the timeliness and convenience of your renovations. If possible, try to begin your renovations between Labour Day and the end of September!
Take Advantage Of The Family Being Out Of The House
Another reason why fall renovations are recommended is that unlike in the summer, your children aren’t at home nearly as much. One of our best tips for fall renovations is to simply take advantage of the quiet! The beginning of the school year is a busy time for kids: new classes, lots of homework, new clubs to join, and new friends to hang out with; this makes back-to-school a great time to renovate.
Consider The Winter
With winter looming in the near future, fall renovations are a great time to get your home ready for the cold. While the weather is still agreeable and you’re working on renovations anyway, consider weatherizing your windows, checking your insulation, installing a fireplace, or choosing another home renovation to get ready for the winter ahead and to keep your family comfortable all year.
