5 Steps to Plan Your Exterior Remodel During the Cooler Months

Are you thinking about remodeling the exterior of your home this year? Do you want to wait until spring or summer to start the project? Then you should still consider starting with the planning now! Even if you want to wait to start your project, the cooler months of the year are great to do the planning.

Colorado winters can be long and cold. It makes undertaking some exterior projects hard. On the other hand, some can definitely be done during the winter. We get many sunny days all year round here in this beautiful state but also many snowy days. 

That is why many homeowners choose to wait for consistently good weather to take on exterior projects. There are definitely good reasons to wait for the spring or summer to start your exterior remodel. However, you can still use the cooler months to be productive and proactive.

Planning your project now has many advantages. Here are five reasons to start planning now and things you can do during the cooler months of the year:

1. Find the right contractor

Sometimes it can be daunting to find the right contractor. Planning ahead can help with that. You can talk to a couple of different companies and take your time to find the right fit. If you start planning in the cooler months for a spring or summer project it will give you plenty of time.

Furthermore, scheduling your project well in advance will make finding the right time easier as well. By planning ahead, you can schedule a time that is best for you as well as the contractor. Getting on the books early will make it more likely that you can get your renovations done when you want them to.

2. Take your time

When you plan ahead you can take your time. That way you can really think everything through without making rash decisions. This will make you be able to collect various ideas and decide on the one that is exactly what you want. 

If you start planning in the cooler months you can also take different surroundings into consideration. What does your home look like during the different seasons, i.e., with colorful leaves around, covered in snow, etc. Thinking about this and taking pictures can help you find the right color palette.

3. Possible discounts

Planning ahead might even result in savings. Sometimes you can get discounts on projects during the off-season, even if you plan them for the future. Prices for building materials always fluctuate, which is especially true right now. Buying the materials early and storing them can save you money. 

The same holds true for hiring a contractor, even if you are planning on having the work done in another few months. It is definitely worth looking into potential discounts by planning ahead.

4. New products

Each year new products are being introduced and new trends emerge. By planning ahead and being proactive, you can be one of the first to implement new and exciting ideas. If you schedule your project early it will give the contractor enough time to find the right products for you.

5. Think about the weather

Colorado has varying weather during the different seasons. More consistent weather can be a big bonus for some projects. Other projects can be done in any kind of climate and weather, especially if high quality products are being used.

One can never be sure what the weather will be like, regardless of the month in which you are planning a project. Nonetheless, there are months with more consistent weather than others. Keep that in mind when planning your project and let the contractor guide you with their experience.
