Plan Your Spring Home Projects

There is no time like the present to start planning your spring home improvement projects. When you start your research and scheduling in the winter months, the whole process will go much easier and quicker come springtime.

Here are some tips for getting started with your spring projects:

Decide on Your Home’s Needs

When choosing your project, prioritize what your home needs done. Winter can wreak havoc on your house, so there may be a chance your home needs new siding or windows – both of which are perfect tasks to complete this spring. Structural improvements should outweigh aesthetic changes since the value of your home is largely based on a sound foundation.

Research Contractors

Finding the right person to do the work on your home can take some time, which is why it is best to start your research as early as possible. Referrals from family and friends are a great place to start, or you can search the internet. Read online reviews. Talk to a few professionals and compare estimates. This will help you choose a contractor that is reliable and trustworthy.

Get on the Schedule

In this market, the best contractors have exceptionally busy spring seasons, so getting on their calendar now allows you to have the best chance at choosing a timeframe that works for your household, rather than being subject to their next availability.

Fund your Project

Don’t have extra money set aside for home improvements? A Home Equity loan or line of credit (HELOC) might be just the thing to help you fund your project and make your house feel new again. You can borrow money from the value of your home in order to make big home improvements.
