So, you have finally chosen your dream pool, the construction has begun, and you can’t wait for your first dip. But you then receive a heartbreaking phone call that the construction has been put on hold due to bad weather conditions. If this sounds like you, know that you are not alone. Unfortunately, weather can be unpredictable and inevitably will cause delays for your new pool. Let’s take a quick look at some reasons why bad weather causes construction delays.
If the soil in your backyard is mainly clay, this will retain water for much longer. Builders require dry and hard ground to work safely and ensure their heavy machinery will work to the best of its ability. Furthermore, suppose your construction has already begun, and you are in the excavation period of the installation. In that case, water can easily gather in the hole, and cave-ins are much more likely. Finally, there will be a knock-on effect as builders will be working on multiple projects simultaneously.
