Deck Installation in the Winter
Deck installation is usually reserved for warmer months. However, winter deck installation has its own benefits!
- Winter helps prepare a deck
Deck installment in the Winter may be good for you because the upcoming snow, frost, and other weather conditions can help get a deck prepared for these different conditions in the future. As the deck withstands the elements it’s tolerance and strength has been proven and resistances can be more than verified!
- During Winter there is little humidity or heat
Winter is a good time for deck installment also because the ground is often dry or frozen. When installing a deck in the spring/summer months, it often causes more damage due to the increased moisture in the ground from rainfall and warmer temperatures. When putting in a deck in the Winter, by the time spring and summer roll around your yard along with your deck will look brand new.
- Labor costs may be down as the Winter may be seen as the “offseason” for some deck builders
Many people would not think of the Winter for being a good time to install their new deck. Deck builders are probably used to this drop in sales during this time because of the season. This would be a great opportunity for homeowners to get good labor costs and have exceptional service because these deck builders won’t be as busy.
