There is nothing worse than suffering through the winter without a garage, scraping off your windshield in the frigid cold every morning before you head to work or having to spray your frozen lock with de-icer.

The good news is…

It’s never too late to stay warm this winter and protect your nice lawn mower and vehicle from all of that snow.

Believe it or not, now is actually the perfect time to have your garage built by a Utah garage builder. That’s because building a garage involves pouring and forming both a concrete base and a concrete floor.

You’ve probably heard at one point or another that concrete should only be poured in moderate weather and warm temperatures. But that isn’t necessarily true. For the average Joe DIY-er, it is probably best to limit concrete pouring to the warmer months just to make things easier.

But when you’re dealing with professional contractors to pour concrete, cooler weather is not a problem. That is because cold weather is ideal for the advanced techniques used by professionals, meaning the concrete will actually set better in the cold.

We can use a variety of different techniques to effectively pour concrete in the cold weather. Many Utah garage builders will specify the slump at less than 4 inches and use air-entrained concrete in order to reduce bleeding. And while it is true that concrete does take longer to set in colder weather, professionals can also use accelerators in order to speed up set time. Professional contractors can also add extra cement and hot water to the mix to ensure ideal conditions for the concrete setting process.

The bottom line?

There is no time like the present to build your brand-new garage.

Most projects can be completed within 4-8 weeks, depending on your city’s permitting process, which WE take care of.

And to stay extra warm and dry, many of our customers also create a little mudroom area between the garage and their home to serve as their winter command center.

That means no more gray, salty, frozen slush being dragged through the house and across your nice carpet or hardwood floors. Contact Bonfire Building today and stay warm this winter!
