On Average How Many Days A Month Does Construction Lose To Weather Delays In The United States And Canada?

Construction projects in the United States and Canada experience approximately 2 to 5 weather-related lost workdays per month. This estimate can vary significantly depending on the region and the time of year. For example, in regions with severe winter weather, such as the northern United States, the number of lost days can be higher during the winter months due to snow and freezing temperatures. Conversely, in areas prone to summer thunderstorms, such as the southeastern United States, summer months may see more weather delays due to heavy rainfall and storms.

Weather delays are often categorized as excusable but non-compensable, meaning that while contractors may receive extensions for project deadlines due to adverse weather, they typically do not receive additional compensation for these delays.

Factors contributing to these delays include rain, snow, extreme temperatures, and high winds. Proper planning and contract language are crucial in managing and mitigating the impact of these weather-related delays on construction projects.

RWES worked with several leading general contractors to develop our patented Reusable Weather Enclosure System (RWES). General contractors have been looking for a better option than cheap poly and construction tarps to enclose job sites. Now they have the perfect solution to keep wind, rain, snow, and adverse weather out of their working environment, prevent weather delays, and keep projects on schedule – the RWES reusable weather enclosure system. A temporary construction building envelope that keeps the interior comfortable and dry until the permanent building envelope is complete.

Providing exceptional value, quick and easy installation, and superior weather protection, RWES has proven itself as the best construction enclosure solution available. Contact our team for a free consultation by calling us at 1-866-264-4713 or filling out the form on this page.
