It's not very hot outside yet, but now is a great time to begin looking into your warm weather house projects. If you're planning to take on a big home upgrade project this summer then you'll want to begin now. Summer house improvement projects often require legal permits, advanced scheduling and even special financing in some cases. Here are a few ways you can save money with some common summer home projects:

Replacing Siding: Putting up siding is a relatively short job, but good installers can be booked months in advance. Some siding installers have special pricing available for booking their services early, and you might even save on material costs. The summer months are popular for siding installation and replacement.

Installing a swimming pool: Swimming pools can be expensive and getting approved for a swimming pool loan sometimes take 2 to 3 months from some lending institutions. Swimming pools are always popular during the summer months, but they require a fair amount of preparation. It can take 2 to 6 months for a pool construction company to install an in ground swimming pool.

Adding a home addition: Most homeowners rely on a home equity loan for large home upgrades. Depending on the size of your project it can take 4 to 6 months or longer to finish a typical house addition. Obviously, adding more space onto your home is going to take a lot of planning and money. Most large home additions are planned with the services of a home builder and require lots different construction inspections.

The fact is that now is a great time to get all the plans and loans taken care of for summer projects. A lot of people don't think of the winter months as a time when they can work on large home improvements. By starting to plan now you could save money on materials and be sure your home improvements will be completed in time for you to enjoy them!
