It may seem odd, but winter can actually be the very best time of the year to tackle exterior home improvements. During the winter months, contractors slow down – customers tend to go into a sort of home improvement hibernation! This slow-down effects a contractor’s ability to keep their crews busy, and they risk losing them. It also causes product sales from suppliers to take a dip. For both supply houses and contractors, efforts to keep business moving include offering special discounts. Even if you have had a contractor give you a price but haven’t had the work done yet, it is worth calling back to see if they can offer any additional discounts.
Not only is winter a great time for special pricing, getting work done during the colder months often has a positive affect on your energy bills. Home improvements like new windows, roofing and attic insulation help keep the cold air out and the warm air in.
Obviously there are times when crews cannot work due to severe weather like ice and snow, and severe dips in temperatures, but overall there are more good days than bad in the Northern Virginia region.
