Decks are a great addition to your home. Not only do they add to your home’s value, but they also add something perhaps more important. An incredible outdoor living space that will allow ample opportunity to gather with family and friends. Many people think that decks can only be built during the warm weather months, but this is far from the truth. Some outdoor projects can only be done in warm weather, but not so for decks. Can you build a deck in the fall or winter? The short answer is yes. Here are a few reasons why it’s an ideal time.
The spring and summer seasons can be unpredictable weather-wise with wide temperature swings and weather patterns. Fall and winter can also see some varied weather conditions, but there are two common ones, cold and colder. The colder temperatures of fall and winter dry out the landscape around your home and make it much easier to work around. Flowers have gone dormant and your lawn has now stopped growing. Dormant plants are much easier to work around. You may think digging is a challenge in the colder months, but it’s actually ideal. The harder ground is much easier to work with than mud. It is also better for construction equipment to be on your lawn.
During the fall and winter, the demand for construction falls, particularly for outdoor projects. Many contractors are longing for work during this time so they can keep their crews busy. Because they have fewer projects on their plate, you won’t be faced with delays as you might during the spring and summer. You’re also more likely to receive larger discounts from contractors as they try to bring work on for their team.
As soon as the weather breaks, people are on the phone trying to set up exterior projects with contractors. This really kicks into high gear after tax returns are submitted and refunds are in hand. Why be put on a waitlist? Get your deck construction completed early – in the fall or winter – before the spring rush hits.
Why wait until spring to start your deck when it’s the prime time to start using it? Instead, use the downtime of winter to your advantage. Get your new deck installed so when the weather breaks, you can take full advantage of it as soon as possible.
