Winter may not strike you as an ideal time to build a deck. But if you time it towards the late winter or early spring, you might just be able to take advantage of a few benefits.
Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows — a trusted roof maintenance and home improvement expert — shares some of the best reasons why you should consider building your deck in late winter or early spring.
Why You Should Build Your Deck in Late Winter and Early Spring
Spring is often considered the renovation season. Home improvement contractors are extremely busy during this time of the year, so you might find it difficult to schedule your project within the season. But if you try to time it a little earlier — ideally during late winter to early spring — you might be able to get a better schedule and ensure your contractor’s undivided attention.
Apart from getting appointments with contractors more easily, you might also be able to enjoy lower rates for their services and even for some decking materials. And speaking of materials, there are certain types of materials that usually benefit from cold weather. For instance, natural wood tends to dry more quickly and evenly during dry winter months without the risk of being exposed to a very hot sun.
Late winter and early spring can certainly be advantageous even for other home improvement projects such as those involving replacement windows or siding. However, some setbacks could still occur during this time, so you also have to anticipate delays and other such events.
For example, make sure to look out for weather forecasts so that you can ensure a suitable day to build your deck. And if an inevitable weather event occurs, try to be flexible and work closely with your contractor to come up with a plan B.
