Extreme Temperatures and Construction

January 4 / Stacey / Comments (0)

Happy New Year!  Extreme temperatures present special considerations while building residential projects.  Currently, HW ENTERPRISES, INC. is building a brick workshop in Toano.  It has hardy plank siding on three walls and a brick facade and skirt.  While the brick facade is about to be done our current weather conditions are complicating that process.  It is prudent to wrap or cover brick in winter weather.  Rain or snow that falls onto the brick and then freezes, freezes the brick together.  When this happens, it delays masonry products installation.  Also, when building in the winter, any product that is to be painted, such as hardy plank composite siding, must wait until the temperature exceeds 50 degrees.  Paint will not properly adhere in lower temperatures.  One approach is to paint the product inside the building, however, in prolonged periods of colder temps, that isn't a viable option either.

When you are planning a garage, accessory building or an addition to your property, call HW ENTERPRISES, INC. for your building needs.  We have the experience and foresight to provide you the best quality project in a timely manner.  Call 757-595-4562 or 757-696-1927.
