There’s a new housing development that I pass by each morning on the way to work. Typically, its pretty dry here in Southern California, but this morning it was raining. I know mold is an insidious problem that is really hard to get rid of, flood-damaged homes are sometimes unsalvageable. How do newer houses prevent that? All the wood and foundations are all out in the open and exposed to the elements
For somewhere like Seattle, where it rains a lot of the time, do they cover up the houses somehow to prevent mold from forming in a new building? How do they do it with so many rainy days?
In places that snow for many months out of the year, do people simply not build any new buildings during winter and spring? I’ve seen skyscrapers under constructions in places like NY, I’ve never really seen pictures of them in the snow though I’m guessing that happens. Are crews working in the snow too? Some buildings take over a year to build, are those plots just left empty when there’s a storm?
