Get a Head Start on Next Year

Start Planning Big Home Projects for Next Year

The year isn't over, but we want to help you get a head start on the year ahead and avoid being disappointed. January and February are some of the busiest months for local tradespeople. It's a time when homeowners can get frustrated having to chase down quotes from tradespeople. There is also a chance your project will be delayed. Being told your project can't start for 4-6 months is often far from ideal, as that then runs into spring and possibly summer.

As well as being busy, we are predicting a rise in the popularity of extensions and home renovations. As homeowners tell us, they plan to create more space in their homes instead of moving. This is mainly due to the housing market's uncertainty and the increase in interest rates.

Get the Tradesperson You Want

If you get your quote done early, you will get a head start and find the right tradesperson you want for the job. You will also get a head start on everyone else who will typically put off contacting tradespeople until New Year'.  

More Time to Look Over the Quote

When you get your quote done this side of the New Year, you will have a little more time and chance to chat over the details with your partner or see the bank manager for a possible loan or remortgage. Making the whole process feel smoother and less stressful.

Agree the Quote and Book a Date

Making sure you book your chosen tradesperson this side of the new year is key to getting ahead of the rush. Trades are generally quieter in November and December, so will have more time to quote and book you in for the new year. They may even be able to start the project early.
