Building A New House
Oct 14, 2021 1:51 pm
Not started building yet but I saw that the not-yet-installed building materials (doors, windows, bracing sheet, particleboard flooring) of a being-built house next to mine have been exposed to the weather for 4-6 weeks. I thought the builder should've covered them to avoid getting wet, but they didn't. I'm afraid that my builder will treat my house in the same way. I wonder if the materials are still okay after being exposed to the rain for 1-2 months like this (not raining continuously though. A few days of raining every one or two weeks). Is it a common practice for the builder just to leave all the materials exposed to rain like this? Thank you very much, everyone.

Hi all, just reposted my questions here:

I’m going to meet the builder’s sale guy again next week, and just think of asking them these questions. With some knowledge from your sharing, I can know what they will say makes sense or not. I reckon they will say the rain should be fine. Appreciate any sharing, I’m 100% amateur on this!

nothing to worry about too much, the skirts are mdf which soaks up water, probably just a bit of rain or water from the car, easy to replace. Wall frames should be ok
