Why is May The Optimal Time For Home Improvement?

May is National Home Improvement month because temperatures and weather conditions in May are often ideal for getting outdoor home improvement jobs done. By May, the weather is no longer freezing cold and there’s no chance of snow, but it also has not become swelteringly hot and the summer storms have not come in yet. May is also right at the beginning of the moving season, when homeowners are getting ready to sell their property to move elsewhere. Home improvement projects are typically undertaken during this month to improve the property value of homes and make them more attractive to potential buyers.

Insulation Removal and Replacement Services

Many homeowners simply do not understand how important good insulation is to their comfort level and energy efficiency in the summer. Insulation provides a barrier of heat resistance, and during the summer, your insulation is resisting the heat that your roof shingles draw into your home. If the insulation in certain rooms has settled over time or become damaged by wildlife, then the affected rooms may be a much higher temperature than the rest of the house during the summer. These insulation blind spot rooms can be unbearable to sit and sleep in, and you might find yourself relying heavily on your HVAC system to cool down.
