Can You Build a Post Frame Building in the Winter?

Short Answer: Absolutely!

Long Answer: As we enjoy another beautiful fall season, we are often faced with a common question; can you build in the winter? The majority of people believe that as soon as the snow flies our building season comes to end; however for Remuda Building this just means it’s time to put an extra layer on.

One of the main advantages of post frame construction over traditional building methods is the fact that there are no concrete foundations to pour, eliminating the need for difficult concrete work in sub-zero temperatures. We have the proper tools and equipment to allow for a smooth building process no matter what time of year.

Although some believe that building in the winter should cost more, we at Remuda have chosen to keep our pricing consistent throughout the year. Building though the winter allows us to provide year round work for our crew members, ensuring the best trained team, and giving you the quality of work that you have come to appreciate from Remuda Building.

Prior to freeze up it is always a good idea to have a relatively flat building site in mind and a packed clay base is ideal if a concrete building slab will be needed in the future. Getting some of the ground work done now can really save time in the future.

If you have any questions about any of this or would like to know more about planning for your next building, do not hesitate to give us a call at (403) 651-4304 or email info@remudabuilding.com.
