Why renovating your home is best done in spring

Springtime – the birds are chirping, the bulbs are sprouting, and we begin to slip out of our respective winter hibernations. What could be a better time, then, for renovating your home? Here, we take a closer look at the numerous benefits to renovating your home in the spring, from the wonderful weather to the waking property market.

Andorra la Vella - Why renovating your home is best done in spring

1. The conditions

Remember – renovating your home isn't just about interior work. For projects in the garden, spring marks the start of the growing season. This means there's no better time to be planting new flowers, bushes and trees in your beds. The coming summer months will encourage fast period of growth, meaning your garden will reach maturity in no time at all. What's more, the few months before summer are tailor-made for working outdoors. Sunlight hours are extending by the day, rainfall is reducing, and temperatures in most parts of the world remain manageable.

The soft ground at this time of year will also make large-scale projects such as decking installations and swimming pool builds significantly easier. The reduced digging time can have a hugely positive impact on the overall project time, meaning you'll be ready to enjoy the fruits of your labour that bit sooner.

2. The market

One of the major benefits to renovating your home at any time is the potential to add value to your property. That's why many people choose to remodel just before putting their home on the market. As spring is generally recognised to be a smart time to sell a home, it follows that this should also be a good opportunity to remodel – as close as possible to the prime marketing hour.

3. The peace

Spring offers a rare window of quiet in most people's calendars. Those with kids can avoid the summer holidays, and the travelling of Christmas is still months away. This means you can give the project your full attention, and reduce the chances of interruption at crucial moments.

4. The right timing

For large exterior home renovations, it makes sense to give yourself the biggest window of time possible in which to complete the work, as it's not uncommon for big projects to overrun. The key here is avoiding the winter. Bad weather conditions can cause havoc to exterior projects. Rain and high-winds can not only cause delay to labour, but they can also cause damage to exposed materials. By wrapping up your exterior home renovations in the summer, your property will have plenty of time to 'acclimatise' before the cooler weather returns.

Whatever work you're carrying out on your property, expert knowledge is always an invaluable resource. Engel & Völkers property insights offer of-the-minute pointers on topics such as how to maximise the value of your property, and how to position it within the market.
