3 Reasons Spring is the Best Time for Construction Projects

Spring is the best time to start a new construction project or historic building renovation in Washington D.C. As the days get longer and the cherry blossoms get close to blooming, now’s the time to get your project on the books with your contractor. The schedule fills up fast this time of year. With longer days, warmer temperatures, and many people and organizations moving their winter plans into action, you can get ahead of the curve by giving us a call today.

 

Here are 3 reasons spring is the best time for construction in D.C.:

  • More time in the day

While changing the clocks didn’t actually give us an extra hour of daylight, the days are getting longer as we race toward summer. More daylight means more time to get work done on the construction site. This helps keep projects on schedule. Longer days also create wider windows for concrete to cure, a critical aspect of the early phases of construction. 

  • Warmer temperatures–but not too warm

Spring temperatures in the Washington D.C. area are a true Goldilocks zone. It’s warm enough to work with temperature-sensitive materials (like concrete, paint, etc.), but not too hot for those doing the work. Plus, snow and ice days are generally behind us. This eliminates a major disruption experienced during the winter months. 

  • Put your winter ideas into action

If you had a construction project in mind through the winter, you likely spent cold days indoors watching home restoration shows and scrolling through ideas online. Beginning a new project is exciting, and it’s only natural to research all of your options ahead of time. Now that spring is here, it’s time to make those dreams reality. Beginning your project now means you could be enjoying your new space by the time the next winter rolls around.

 

Put our experience on your side this spring as you launch your new project. Whether you’re breaking ground on new construction or restoring one of the D.C. area’s many historic churches or commercial buildings, we’ll partner with you through every every step.
