The winter weather is now in full season. While production of our building kits is not affected by inclement weather (20-25 work days from date of order), poor weather does have a realistic impact on an overall project lead time of a garage or shed project. In certain sites, project lead times during the winter months need to include & allow time to establish all weather drive ways, concrete works, and other site preparation that may be affected by heavy/wet ground conditions. Heavy equipment is required to perform these works, and in some circumstances, wet conditions limit the access of heavy machinery, some sites become inaccessible until dryer months.
Strong winds and rain also cause delays on the construction side of the business. Windy and wet building sites cause risk of damage to materials & equipment.
The inconvenience to customers and frustration of a delay is understandable. Our objective is always to complete a project as soon as possible however, performing the installation in safe work conditions to OH&S compliance will always remain priority.
Contact us with your site details to discuss the project lead times for your project during winter months.
Steel Price Increase - September 2012
We have received preliminary information regarding a pending Steel price rise.
It appears to be due at the end of September 2012 and will impact on a range of materials, including Colorbond and Zincalume cladding, and steel framing products.
Ultimately, this means despite the weather, the best time to move forward with your project is now.
