Why Spring is an Optimal Time for Your New Home Build

What better way is there to hit “reset” than by beginning to build the home you’ve been dreaming of this spring? The season of rebirth is finally here, and with that, another perfect opportunity to get started on your custom home. Here’s why.

Keep Things on Schedule

Spring and summer have the most amount of daylight of the four seasons. And while we could all benefit from more of the “sunshine vitamin”, health and happiness are not the only reasons to get started on your new home build soon. More daylight also means longer work days, helping to ensure your new home gets completed in a timely manner.

Not to mention, if your wish list is particularly large or luxurious, starting earlier in the year allows both you and your contractor to take your time with each detail, from your outdoor amenities to your master suite.

Avoid Unwelcome Weather Conditions

From humidity and heat waves to rainfall and wind gusts, there are several factors that could delay your project from getting completed as quick as you’d like – even with professional, third-generation home builders from Monetti Custom Homes on site. Not to mention, extreme conditions can also have an impact on overall progress. Heat and humidity can prolong the drying process, warp building materials, and even support the growth of mold. All are manageable, but none are desirable to an eager homeowner.

When you start in the spring, you minimize the risk of these conditions posing a threat, especially during the foundational stages like digging and setting.

Enjoy Every Minute of the Experience

While you’re waiting for your dream home to be built, there is no reason you can’t enjoy a little vacation on the side. Spring is the perfect time of year to start experiencing life on the coastline while staying involved in the process and in close proximity to your builders. During the spring you can enjoy countless sunrises and sunsets, rent a bike to explore the town, relax on the beach, and more much.

Prioritize Your Day-to-Day Life

Spring is also a great time to start your home build/remodel project because it doesn’t get in the way of your schedule. In Fall, children typically go back to school, which comes with new requirements now that so many counties have embraced remote education. During the winter, you’ll likely want to spend time with family, enjoy decision-free downtime from work, and entertain guests in your gourmet kitchen.

Of course, there are some homeowners-to-be that would prefer to get the ball rolling when they can take extended leave or while they’re out of town for the holidays. You will ultimately need to make the decision that is best for you and your family while factoring in your plans over the next 3-6 months.

For Monetti, the highest standards of builder professionalism, quality, and value are of utmost importance. We won’t ever cut corners or rush a project to avoid unfavorable weather conditions. That being said, always take timing into consideration with your needs and your budget when you’re ready to build your prestigious custom home on the New Jersey coastline.

Building in the off-season might reduce some of your costs, but it may also cost you in terms of weather-related delays. Spring is an optimal time to start the process because it minimizes the risk of any roadblocks during the build and will get you into your new home sooner rather than later.
