As winter begins to come to a close, spring brings warmer weather, blooming gardens, and the start of MLB spring training (and Mud Hens Opening Day!) to mind. But springtime is also the ideal time of year to start construction on a new home. In more ways than one, it’s optimal for completing construction without experiencing delays so that you can get into your new home before the new school year begins in the autumn.
If building a house is in your sights, here are a few reasons why spring may be the perfect time to begin.
Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold
Waiting too long to start construction, and temperatures or other severe weather conditions may become more likely to cause delays. Harsh heat waves and summer storms after spring can be unwelcome roadblocks to sticking on schedule.
Building in a humid area like Northwest Ohio also requires consideration about how higher percentages of humidity will affect home construction. More humidity in the summer means longer drying and curing times for certain materials like concrete and paint.
Late Winter Planning
The key to sticking on schedule is to avoid wasting any time. Beginning construction in the spring allows you to utilize the colder months leading up to spring for planning stages of the home build. During this time when construction would be more difficult, you can finalize floor plans with the architects and designers and pick out the lot. Then when spring hits, your construction team can hit the ground running.
