When to make repairs?

Repair is not an easy task, which can take a long time. Therefore, it is better to do pre-planning for repair in order to take into account possible circumstances, realize everything quickly and enjoy the result. First of all, it is better to decide what time of year to make repairs.

It depends on several factors:

  • Free time. It is important to know when you go on vacation, especially if you want to renovate your home on your own. You can hire a construction team, but in this case, you have to control the workers and constantly be in touch. Therefore, you will definitely not be up to work;
  • Budget. There is a need for budgeting when deciding on what is included in the repair work. If you do not have enough money, then determine when you can collect the required amount and plan repairs in this period.

Repair: winter or summer? 

If there are enough free time and money to start work now, then pay attention to important nuances, which can also be decisive. To understand what time of the year it is better to make repairs, consider the advantages of each:

1. Spring-summer 

  • During this period, the days are longer. It gets dark, which means more can be done, especially if outdoor work is needed. For interior decoration, daylight is also much more effective than artificial. It helps to better see bumps and other defects that are easier to detect and fix. 
  • It's warmer outside. This is very important if you plan to repair the facade or other work outside. When working in the cold, craftsmen have to take breaks to keep warm, which significantly prolongs the duration of the repair. Some types of work are in principle impossible at sub-zero temperatures.
  • Summer season. Living in an apartment during the repair is not very comfortable. Dust, the smell of glue and paint can spoil not only things, but also harm health. In spring and summer, you can temporarily move to a country house. Thus, you will protect yourself and your property, as well as will save on rental housing.
  • The heating system is turned off. This period is suitable for replacing batteries and pipes.

2. Autumn-winter 

  • This period is not suitable for making repairs. During this period, building and decoration materials become significantly cheaper, as the peak of sales for obvious reasons falls on June-August. If you want to get by at a low cost, then there is no better time.
  • There are more free construction crews during this period, as demand for their services falls. Therefore, they reduce prices, which gives you a chance to get a quality repair is not very expensive.
