Winter & Construction

This age old adage rings true. It’s either freezing cold, or we can hear the steady drum of trucks backing up, hammers, air nailers, saws and other construction sounds. Why? Well the weather. . .

It’s cold in Simcoe county during the winter, making construction challenging. The ideal time to start a construction project, including home renovations and additions, is during the spring, summer, and fall months.

One of the main reasons for this is that during the winter months, the ground freezes making excavation and other outdoor construction tasks near-impossible. By waiting for the warmer months, not only can excavation and outdoor tasks be completed, but the milder temperatures also make it more comfortable for workers to perform their tasks.

In addition, warmer weather reduces the need for heating the interior of an unenclosed building, which can add significant costs to a construction project. This is especially important for those renovating or adding to their homes as interior temperatures need to be maintained for the safety of workers and proper installation of materials.

Starting a home renovation or addition project in the spring, summer, or fall also gives homeowners plenty of time to plan and get everything in order before the construction process begins. This includes obtaining the necessary permits and approvals, as well as giving designers and building professionals the time they need to accurately design, price, and organize the job.
