Winter is generally a slow time of year for contractors and custom home builders. However, this doesn’t mean that homes aren’t built during the chilly winter months. When meeting with a custom home builder or contractor during the winter, you might have many questions regarding your dream home plans. Read on to learn more about the common misconceptions of custom built home building in cold weather.
Does the Cost of my Custom Built Home Go Up Or Down During The Winter?
The answer to this is yes and no. This is a tricky one because it usually has less to do with the weather and more to do with the economy and market. In a slower economy, it can be tougher for contractors and crews to stay busy during the winter, so prices under those circumstances, could come down. There are also extra labor costs that are required for your custom built home during the winter, which can add to costs. So, most of the time, things even out and prices will be about the same.
Will Good Workmanship Still Be Performed In The Cold?
Yes, experienced and professional custom home building crews provide quality work year-round. The teams and builders from Robin Ford Builders are all pros at what they do, and would not blink an eye at taking on a project during the cold winter months. They’ve done it year after year, and are highly equipped and qualified to work in any weather.
Does Winter Weather Damage Building Materials?
If you’re concerned about the winter weather damaging your custom built home and its materials, you do not need to worry. It’s easier to work with materials after a snowstorm compared to materials after an intense rainstorm. This is because snow doesn’t leave any damage and is easy to sweep off. Rain can seep into the materials and cause internal damage.
