Why Winter is the Best Time to Install Your New Fence or Deck

Fence & Deck Connection Installs Fences and Decks 12 Months a Year!

Did you know that Fence & Deck Connection installs fences and decks year-round? Installing a new deck in the winter months might seem like a disappointment. After all, the cooler temperatures limit time spent outdoors, and you’re probably not hosting many backyard BBQs. However, when the chilly air disappears and the spring flowers start to bloom, you’ll be ready to make the most out of your outdoor space without worry or delay! Here are just a few reasons why you should install your new fence or deck in the rest of these winter months:

Faster Turnaround Time

Summer is undoubtedly the busiest season for our Anne Arundel County-based fence and deck installation company – and these past few summers were no exception! Though we do our best to get your project started and completed as soon as possible, customers can expect longer wait times when demand is high. After the summer and early fall, most fence and deck companies enter their slower season — families are busier, work and school lives take precedent over home improvement projects, and less time is being spent outdoors. By taking advantage of the “slow season”, customers have the benefit of quick turnaround times, which means less time daydreaming about your backyard and more time enjoying it!

Your Outdoor Space Will Be Ready For Spring!

As true Marylanders know, one day you’re bundled up in snow boots, the next day you’re jogging in shorts! But before you know it, the season will change and if you’re not prepared, you could be in for longer wait times as the demand for home improvement help picks back up in the spring. Regardless of whether you want your peaceful time sitting by the pool or digging in the dirt to prepare for your summer harvest you won’t need to postpone your plans until the point when your fence is finished.

Until those sunny days and warmer temperatures appear, you can maximize your time outdoors in the winter by investing in a gas-fueled fire pit or an outdoor commercial patio heater — it makes for cozy afternoons or evenings with your closest loved ones!

Dry Weather Is Optimal For Installation

During the spring or summer season the Maryland weather can range from hot, humid days to stormy, rainy days with very little warning. During the winter season, however, the weather is a lot more bearable and the cooler weather dries out the landscape. This makes it much easier to build a new deck on a yard without causing any significant damage to your property.

In addition, if you plan on using pressure-treated wood for your fence or deck, the material will have time to “season” properly outdoors, without being exposed to high temperatures and direct sunlight. Wood that has been pressure treated contains only 50% of its moisture content. Winter is most definitely a dry season with little or no humidity (unlike Maryland summers), which helps the wood stabilize faster and it will dry more evenly.

More Cost Effective

As we mentioned before, the summer months are the busiest time for fence and deck installers. Some of the best deals for a new fence or deck in Maryland will take place in the winter, as things slow down. It not only passes extra savings to our wonderful customers, but helps keep our team working hard all year long!
