Pros and Cons to Winter Construction

Pros and Cons to Winter Construction

Winter doesn’t seem to be the best time to start a construction project. Summer seems to be the season to get all of your construction projects done. However, there are many pros to choosing to do a construction project in the winter. Of course, there are some cons to doing construction in the winter. Pro Star Rental knows the challenges of a deadline and how weather can often hold you back from completing the project. What many may not know is that winter can help to speed up the process.

Here are some pros to construction in the winter:

  1. Contractors have more availability meaning that you can have more services done within the timeframe.
  2. Better Rates. The winter causes many businesses to slow down causing rates to be lower. So, you’re able to save more money in the end.
  3. Permits are easier and faster to get. With less to do, making for the proper permits easier and smoother to get.

Here are some cons to construction in the winter:

  1. Fewer day light hours to work with. What you would like to get done in a work day may not be plausible in the winter as it would be in the summer.
  2. Extra heating cost. You can’t be working in the cold without some type of heating element.
  3. Ground freezing… There might be some construction delays because of the ground being frozen.
