Well Drilling Wilmington NC

Why You Can (And Should) Drill a New Well in Winter

At Applied Resource Management, we have been very open about the benefits of owning your own well. It’s not hard to see why—after all, well water is free, reliable, and good for you. That’s why our company offers residential and commercial well drilling for projects of all sizes.

One question we hear often from our customers and clients is whether it is a good idea to drill a well in the winter. The answer to this question is a rousing “Yes!” Ideally, the well will be the very first step of the construction process, while the lot is still vacant. This gives you an opportunity to drill the well without the added pressure of people who need the water immediately. An empty lot also provides more room to move equipment to the most optimal spots.

If your home or building has already been constructed, no worries! Drilling a well is no problem at all—especially with the help of an experienced and knowledgeable crew. In fact, Applied Resource Management often drills wells on pre-built lots, especially in New Hanover County where undeveloped land is becoming more and more rare.

Whether your project is new construction or a remodel, you don’t have to wait until spring to begin drilling your well. Believe it or not, winter is actually an ideal time to tackle this particular project. Here are three reasons why the time to drill is now.

You’ll beat the rush.

Spring, summer, and fall are notoriously busy for construction and environmental companies. While some processes have to wait for warmer weather, drilling a well isn’t one of them. Schedule now and you won’t have to wait weeks to get the job done.

Colder weather means a cleaner site.

While the ground in southeastern North Carolina rarely gets the chance to freeze (a fact we’re pretty happy about) the colder winter weather does offer some benefits. Drilling a well in the winter is often less muddy, less messy, and is a good way to avoid damaging your lawn during the months when you actually want to enjoy it.

Your water will be ready to go.

As soon as the well is drilled and hooked up, water will be immediately accessible. This is a huge bonus for new construction, because you won’t have to haul water to the site, saving you time, energy, and money.

If you have been considering adding a well to your property, or if you’re planning to begin construction on an empty lot this spring, now is the time to drill your well. Contact Applied Resource Management and we’ll get the ball rolling right away.
