  • Ease of cleaning: during and after your home renovation, it’s inevitable that you’ll experience an accumulation of dust and decorating debris. However, at this time of year, cleaning is so much easier and any water that you’ve used to clean will dry quicker too.
  • There’s more ventilation: you can leave your windows and doors open for the paint to dry and reduce any paint fumes with good ventilation.
  • Less humidity: in summer there’s less humidity, which is very useful for certain jobs and to reduce the time of some finishes.
  • More time to carry out work: one of the advantages of renovating your home during the summer has to do with the fact that there are more hours of natural light. The longer days extend working hours, which translates into finishing any work faster.
  • You’ll hardly disturb your neighbors: Since most of your neighbors are likely to be out and about on vacation, there’ll be no major disruption that generates a lot of noise or traffic congestion.
  • Competitive prices and more availability: because many people are on vacation during this time, there’s good availability of workers and you can find more affordable materials.

3. Doors and locks

Reinforcing your doors and locks in summer is very important, especially if you’re going on vacation. In this way, you’ll have the certainty of knowing that your home remains secure while it remains uninhabited.
