The weather is as unpredictable as ever, and this unpredictability can affect your exterior renovation work no end. We all know that there will be several days where you won’t be able to make progress on your home during this time, as you wait for the rain to blow over. This article will provide some ideas as to how to plan for this in advance. Whether you are a DIY novice or are well versed in doing your own home renovations, having some ideas as to what can be done if the weather turns nasty will be important and may serve to save you time.

Ensure access to an indoor or weather-safe space

Having access to an interior space on your DIY renovation site is something that should be done. It provides space to store tools and supplies and a place to get out of the rain. Plan for what you can do inside. Painting or varnishing fence posts, potting plants, and building pergolas are all useful DIY tasks that can be carried on indoors or undercover.

Build a few ‘weather’ days into your planning

Regardless of where you are doing your DIY renovation, it’s imperative to plan for some inclement weather. If it’s outdoor renovations, the odds are that there will be a few days that you may not be able to crack on, or even just some periods in the day. Checking weather forecasts is a good starting point, and knowing what to expect at the specific time of the year and location should be part of your planning for the work.

Safety wear and work in the rain

Certain groundworks and exterior renovation jobs can definitely be continued in the rain with the right safety equipment, safety wear, and willingness to crack on. There is the age-old adage that there is no such thing as inappropriate weather, just inappropriate clothing. This rings true, but only dependent on the type of job being performed. Have safety in the forefront of your mind when doing a DIY renovation, as any accidents will only serve to delay you.

Keep in mind that the weather can seriously affect how fast you’re able to finish your DIY renovation. When planning to work on your home yourself, it’s always best to try and plan to do your renovation work in the summer. During this time, you’re less likely to come across days that halt your progress and should then be able to finish your work quicker. This will save a lot of time, allowing you to get the renovated home you desire, but it will also save you some money as well.
