A home renovation can be a significant investment not just in terms of time, but in terms of patience. If you’re talking to a clearwater window contractor about potentially replacing your windows in the coming year, there’s going to be some things to keep in mind that make this year a little different from some of the others in the past.
Today, we’re going to talk about a few of those things and what you can expect. Let’ jump right in.
While the COVID-19 pandemic is still impacting us, it’s acutely impacting supply chains all across the globe. To put it succinctly, it has become more difficult to access materials and wait times for those materials has gone way up, as has the cost of said materials. Be sure to plan for a longer renovation that might be a little bit more expensive than you planned on it being.
Not only are prices going up because of demand, but we’re also dealing with inflation. Things that didn’t cost as much a few years ago – are now costing a significant amount of money. Whether its plywood for roofing projects or glass for window repair – the cost of good is significantly higher and could and likely will impact your budget in an adverse way.
In light of these unique problems, you’ll need to make sure you’re finding plenty of time to plan properly – not just in terms of your project’s timeline, but it’s budget as well. Cushion your budget as well – as there’s no telling right now where prices might end up.
And also – remember that all of these things don’t necessarily mean you have to compromise – instead you need to get creative. There’s lots of alternatives and solutions out there so long as you take the right amount of time to explore all your options.
