Despite the common instinct to complete home remodeling and home renovations in the warmer months, there are some updates that are more practical to do in the winter. Some projects, like countertop replacement and new paint jobs, are good to do in the winter because of a lack of moisture in the air, or because you don’t have to go outside much to do them. Other jobs, however, like the ones listed below, actually benefit you to do in the winter. These are more about practicality than convenience.

Replacing Windows

If you have old, drafty windows, winter is when you’re going to notice the immediate difference new windows can make in your home. You’ll stop drafts and save on your energy bill for heating right away. While you might think that window replacement is for warm-weather seasons, consider that replacing your windows during the cold season helps you to better identify which windows are the problem. This can save you a lot of time and money!

Installing Insulation

Winter is also the best time of year to install insulation. Cold rooms and uneven temperatures through loss of heat through the walls are no longer a problem when you get this done, and like replacing windows, the results are immediate. Your heating elements don’t have to work as hard, and you can stay warm and cozy indoors throughout the rest of the winter season.

Updating Flooring

Did you know that one of the warmest flooring options on the market is engineered hardwood? It is made so that it can withstand harsh temperatures, hot or cold! It is also made so that it doesn’t cup, warp, shrink or expand with changes in humidity. If you’re looking for solutions for flooring updates, winter is the perfect time to find the flooring that best suits your needs during the cold temperature months. This is especially true for allowing adhesives to dry, because the dryer air aids in quick drying, as opposed to the more humid air of the warmer months.
