How Rain Affects New Construction

Watch on your mobile device >> 

April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring headaches and problems for builders and clients.

A lot of clients are frustrated that the hole for their homes has not been dug yet.  Builders, though, must consider the weather forecast before moving forward with construction.

Here, we have a perfect example of what happens when rain falls soon after a hole is dug.  This basement is nine feet deep and flooded with four feet of water.  The construction is now two months behind: the water needs to be pumped out, the ground has to dry and then the hole must be dug again and reshaped. 

Not only does it put progress behind, it also is dangerous for those living in the area already.  Drownings and other accidents are a liability for the builder. 

Trust your builder for the best time to begin digging. If you have any questions, please contact us at 402.680.2500 or email Bill Black directly at bill.black@cbshome.com.
