5 great reasons to build
your dream home this winter.
From saving money to enjoying your home longer, building in winter has some big advantages. And only Wausau Homes has the expertise and technology to build homes faster and better in winter months.
- Save on taxes. You pay taxes only on what exists on your property before January 1 of that year. So, we can pour a foundation this winter then start building immediately after the New Year. Your home is ready by spring but your first tax bill doesn’t come until June 1, and is based only on the foundation.
- Save on building materials. Because most new homes are built in April and May, the demand for materials goes up. That means the same quality materials are usually less expensive during the winter months. Plus, our building methods get materials up and under roof faster, virtually eliminating exposure to the elements.
- Get the best site crews. The home building industry slows down in the cold season—not every builder can build as efficiently as Wausau Homes in winter. Fewer site crews means the best of the best are the ones on the job. During the winter months, you get easier access to the top crews in the industry.
- Gain a full season in your home. Who wants to spend all spring and summer watching their dream home being built? We’re just as efficient building in winter as every other season, so you’ll be enjoying your new home by spring. While other builders are still on the job, we’re moving our customers in.
- Get Wausau Homes expertise. For over 50 years, we’ve been building year-round. Our experience and unique building methods are unmatched in speed, efficiency, and quality when building in winter. We take advantage of the elements—and understand the process needed when the temperature drops.
- Proper site preparation, controlling the cure rate of concrete, and interim heating procedures are just three of the ways we know how to manage the building process during the winter months.
- Even in winter, Wausau Homes will continue to provide the best quality and at no extra cost. With the tax timing benefits and a winter promotion opportunity, building in winter can save you thousands of dollars too!
