    BUILDING IN THE WINTER? A-OKAY!

    One of the many questions we get as an Ontario Homebuilder is whether or not construction continues through the winter.

    The answer is YES, it does. While the frigid weather may make some things more difficult, you may be surprised to learn that there are some real benefits to building your home in the winter. Take a look at some of them below.

    YOUR HOME MAY BE BUILT FASTER

    You were probably expecting to hear the opposite! While extreme weather situations like huge snow storms and freezing temperatures may cause delays here and there, it is entirely possible that your home will be built faster in the winter. This is largely due to a decrease in demand.

    Since many people are reluctant to start construction in the winter, contractors, designers, and the rest of your home-building team typically only have to focus their efforts on a handful of jobs. This means they can devote more attention to your new home, often resulting in a shorter build time.

    This decreased demand can also affect the time it takes to get building permits. With less people applying, the permit process can speed up considerably, allowing your team to get to work faster.

    SNOW CAN BE EASIER TO HANDLE THAN RAIN

    Unless they get caught in the middle of a whiteout, contractors often prefer snowy days to those with heavy rain. As long as they have the proper equipment and supplies on hand, they can usually just cover the construction area and continue doing their jobs. Snow doesn’t pool and soak areas like the rain can, so if it does accumulate, it’s simply a matter of brushing or shoveling it away the next day

    YOU MAY GET A BETTER MOVE-IN DATE

    A lot of people try to plan their new home construction around their ideal move-in date. For example, some families want to get settled into their new home before the school year starts, while others want it ready for spring planting and landscaping.

    Whatever move-in date you’re after, then a winter construction may be necessary.

    Thinking the winter is a perfect time to begin your custom project? Now comes the moment to involve FarDun Group.
