Contractor taking a long time to break ground
This is my first post so please bear with me. Our contractor has had all the permits pulled for a month but has yet to break ground because the forecast continues to show a slight possibility for rain. The frustrating part is that we have been on the schedule with the excavator/concrete company for a week and a half and there have been perfectly clear sunny days and they do nothing.
I understand digging a foundation in the rain is not good but our excavation is basically digging down two feet and filling the hole with gravel and pouring the slab on grade for a 1400 sq ft house. Meanwhile the contractor has been taking side jobs but assures us that once it starts it will go quickly.
Does this seem like he has been stalling to you or is waiting a month normal and I am just being impatient?
