July Is Almost Here! Is Your House Ready For The Holidays?

Many homeowners are excitedly doing outdoor home projects right now – seems just about the right time to work on new decks, landscaping and exterior painting. But, do you know what this time of year is great for? Getting ready for holiday guests! And here is why.

It may seem a little crazy to start thinking about your remodeling or basement finishing projects right now but we are here to tell you that this is the perfect time to start thinking about it. We have found that many of our clients know in the back of their mind that they want to do some projects around the house before the relatives come into town during the holiday season. However, most will wait until the kids are back at school and things are settling into the fall routine before they really start making plans.

Our experience has taught us that if you wait until fall is here to get going on those holiday projects, you could be disappointed. Many homeowners don’t have realistic expectations about how long it will take to find the right contractor, finalize the details of the project and to get the work done. They just don’t allow enough time. And sadly, those homeowners are competing against the ones that made plans more in advance.

So, our advice to you is to start putting some time into those home projects now and you will be so happy that you did. Certainly puts a new spin on the “Christmas in July” idea, doesn’t it?
