Winter is supposed to be a season to put off home improvements. However, tackling an entry door replacement at this time of year has several merits. Yes, dealing with a home project when snow begins to fall may be inconvenient in a few ways, but it is very much worth the effort.
In this post, Classic Remodeling Corp. explains the many practical reasons to buy a new entry door in winter.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Apart from scheduling a timely roof repair, upgrading your inefficient entry door can lessen the strain on your central HVAC system in a season when it is expected to run constantly. If you have an old front door, replacing it with an ENERGY STAR®–certified one will help reduce your heating costs. The reduction in your energy bills will be more noticeable if you like holing up inside the house.
Affordable Cost of Labor
As mentioned, winter is typically a slow period for home improvement companies. When there is less demand for their services, they are more likely to charge less. This season may present an opportunity to hire the finest crew at a lower cost.Then again, you do not want to spend too little on labor. The lowest bid is usually not the best one. As always, you should compare door, window, siding and roofing contractors based on credentials and not on estimates alone.
If you have tackled home projects in spring or in summer in the past, then you probably know how hard it is to book the best local contractors. In winter, it is a refreshingly different story. You will be surprised how loose the schedules of even the most in-demand entry door installers in your community.
