People sometimes wonder when the best time of the year is to begin constructing a new home. Among all the seasons, spring is typically the ideal time to begin construction on a new house because of faster timelines, better environmental conditions, ideal times for landscape installation, and less delays in the building process.
Having said that, here in Arizona, our mild weather conditions allow us to build from the ground up during the year. Following more than 50 years of serving this area, we at Hughes Development have noticed various advantages of building homes throughout different seasons. Whereas spring is a perfect time to begin building a home, the colder months are typically when building materials and construction expenses are lowest due to less demand.
Let’s go deeper and explore the benefits of why home buyers should think about building their homes during the spring.
Be Ahead of the Pack on the Building Rush
Summer is usually the busiest time of year for builders and general contractors. Similarly, builders also have a more challenging time scheduling plumbers, subcontractors, etc., since their schedules additionally fill up. Closer to the end of spring and summer you begin, the more possible it is for builders to be backed up and delay your building project. Beginning your construction project in the spring puts you first on their schedule – prior to things getting busy.
One other advantage to getting the construction process began early in the spring is that builders are going to still have less projects on their schedules; basically, giving your project the same degree of attention, you would receive if you were to begin in the winter months, but lacking as many weather interruptions as possible. Furthermore, when there are particular considerations with your home (for instance custom countertops or modified home designs or floor plans), the builder can zero in on those issues earlier in the season.
Costs Stay Lower as Weather Improves
As spring turns to summer, demand for materials and labor increases, which can raise your costs a little higher. Beginning in early spring is going to mean you have the benefit of building in better weather prior to costs start to increase considerably.
Ideal Weather and Temperatures for Building
Whereas spring storms can cause brief delays, Arizona’s spring weather is ideal for building outdoors, which usually means longer workdays. Beginning in spring means that, if the weather allows, your new home may be finished in a shorter time frame than if you started in the hotter summer months or throughout a wet, and cold winter.
Extends Your Building Season, if Needed
When you have a significantly large, intricate, or complicated home building project, it might take longer to finish. Beginning your home project in spring allows your builders to take full use of the best weather months out of the year. They are going to have considerable time to work through spring, summer, and fall, if required, with less delays.
These are just a couple of reasons why it makes sense for you to start building your new home in the springtime. To learn more about the advantages of beginning early and to look at an assortment of house designs, contact Hughes Development today.
