Building a home is an exciting and stressful task. There is a lot of preparation that goes into the project and it’s important to plan ahead. One of the biggest things to keep in mind in timing. When is the right time to get started?
When trying to determine the best time to build your house in Florida, take into consideration these key factors:
Consider the Weather
In Florida, we have a few seasons that are not ideal for home building. First is hurricane season. The heavy winds and rains can not only be damaging but they can delay projects. Hurricane seasons runs from June to November. We understand it’s not easy to avoid construction during such a long period of time, but keep in mind that if you do choose to build your home during these months to keep a close eye on the weather forecast.
Second, Florida summer heat can be brutal! It is important to consider the safety and well-being of the builders on your job. Not only do you want to avoid health emergencies on the job, you want to make sure the workers are in an environment to do their job properly!
Cost Savings Opportunities
Building a new home is expensive. If you are looking to lower your construction costs, consider the cost savings opportunity to building during the off season. Spring and summer are the busiest months for construction; with high demand comes higher pricing. Since the fall and winter months tend to be less busy, the cost of labor and even materials tend to be less.
