Homeowners who don't work in the construction trade often think of remodeling projects and home renovations as something to do in the spring or summer. Part of the reason for this is how the longer days allow the job to be finished faster, along with the fact most people are more active during the summer and actually think about how a project can add value to their house and improve their daily life. The fact of the matter is, a contractor is prepared to work during the winter months and even if you decide to wait until spring to start the project you can start planning ahead of time.

Building and remodeling of homes is a job typically conducted during warm summer weather, and is therefore often overlooked as a potential winter job. You would be correct to assume the work is easier to do during nice weather, but that doesn't mean it can't be done in the cold. The disadvantage is the work may take longer than usual because there are some days when winter weather prevents your contractor from safely conducting the job. The upside is your contractor needs the work and is less pressed for time during winter months when less work is happening as a general state of affairs.
