Planning for a renovation takes more time than you might expect.
New, energy efficient windows improve your home’s resale value, improve home security, and create savings on those steep winter utility bills. No wonder you’re excited about the prospect. However, replacing your old windows with new models requires planning and time, even in ideal circumstances. Today, a run on home renovation projects paired with supply chain disruptions add to run of the mill renovation challenges.
More renovation projects mean a more crowded contractor schedule.
Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies predicts the upsurge in home renovation projects that started in 2020 will peak in 2022. Currently, most reliable contractors are booked solid for months in advance. To secure a spot on your preferred contractor’s crowded schedule, book your window renovation project four to six months in advance.
Make connections with contractors and material suppliers ASAP.
Economists expect supply chain disruptions and materials sourcing challenges to continue through 2022, which means you should expect delays with the materials you’ll need to get new windows installed. Scheduling your project several months in advance provide your contractor a more reasonable timeline for securing materials.
