Most homeowners avoid doing home improvement projects in the winter due to the threat of weather-related challenges. However, tackling certain projects in the winter can actually be advantageous.
The residential roofing contractors at Sprague Roofing and Restoration explain why replacing your entry door in the winter might be a good idea.
1. It’s Easier to Identify Issues With Your Front Door in Winter
Windows and doors can account for a quarter of the total heat loss in the average American household. Despite this, many homeowners overlook the importance of an energy-efficient entry door and other green features.
It’s easier to identify problems with your home’s energy efficiency in the winter. You can usually tell there’s a problem if temperatures keep fluctuating inside your home. If some rooms are colder than others, have one of your local roofing contractors conduct an inspection.
2. More Flexibility With Scheduling
Demand for contractor services drops in winter. This is good news as you’ll likely be able to schedule your project exactly when you want, without any delays.
3. You Can Get Better Deals in Winter
To offset the dip in demand, some contractors offer discounts on entry doors and windows in the winter. However, don’t get too carried away with the deals and discounts—when embarking on a home improvement project, you should always prioritize the quality of the entry door and the expertise of the contractor who’ll be installing it.
Here’s a vetting tip: Check a contractor’s certifications. These credentials are proof that a contractor has undergone professional training to keep their knowledge and skillset up to date.
