Spring is around the corner

Spring is Around the Corner!

It’s hard to believe, as we crank up our thermostats and throw another log into the burner that Spring is around the corner and will soon be upon us!

We don’t know about you, but it’s one of our favourite times of year. It’s a season of renewal and has the additional bonus of allowing us to work without being frozen solid!

Spring is the ideal time to carry out certain works on your home.

If you are considering alterations which will see your home boarded up, for an extension or other major change, carrying this out in drier weather makes for far less issues in terms of cold and damp affecting your home and its contents. The increasing duration of sunlight also allows us to work safely on-site for longer working days. This equals less time with builders drinking your tea!

When it comes to booking in trades people for exterior works, you really cannot get in touch soon enough. Most reliable builders will be booked for at least a quarter in advance.

For exterior decorating and maintenance, booking an early slot will give you the greatest chance of getting your works completed during the drier seasons. Some works simply cannot be carried out in damp, cold or wet conditions. With UK weather being somewhat variable, getting into your builder’s calendar early will ensure your work is scheduled and can be moved if the weather requires it.

The same is true for garden-related works. Whilst it’s less weather-dependent that exterior decorating, this time of year sees pent-up demand scrambling for the earliest slots. The best landscapers and brickworkers will be booked up and this has a knock-on effect for electrical works for those seeking to make the most of their gardens with exterior lighting.

As we always say, it’s never too soon to make the first call to your builder. If you have a project in mind for your home this Spring or Summer, feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements on 01284 386899 or info@phihome.co.uk
