Construction Site Work can be done in Winter

There is a belief that construction site work cannot be done in the winter, but this is not the case. Others believe that perhaps concrete cannot be poured during the harsh New England winters because it will freeze before it will set. These myths are just that: myths.

With additives for concrete specifically designed to be used during cold weather, we can pour foundations and basement floors throughout the entire winter season with no adverse effects.

Construction site digging work can be done during the winter as long as the ground has been protected before the frost. If you are planning to dig during the winter, protecting the ground before a hard freeze can easily and inexpensively be done by spreading wood chips, hay, straw, or other mulch products. Leaves that have been raked up during fall cleanup are also an option as long as they are 12-18 inches deep. There is no longer a need to wait for the spring thaw to start your new home!
