    The Benefits of Deck Construction in Winter

    The Benefits of Deck Construction in Winter

    Build your deck in the winter and be ready to relax for the New England summer!

    As the sun starts to set sooner, and the temperatures drop to below freezing – lots of New Englanders are already counting down the days until summer – and so are we! Surprisingly winter is an ideal time to start planning your new deck or deck facelift. Here are a few reasons why replacing your deck now rather than later is beneficial. 

    Get Into the Contractor’s Queue: Reliable contractors with great reputations are in high demand. With labor shortages still a challenge throughout the construction industry, many contractors have a significant backlog of carpentry projects. This means you could sign a contract for work today but the estimated project start date could be 3-6 months away. By starting the deck design process and estimation process in the winter, you’ll have the opportunity to sign a contract and immediately get into a contractor’s queue for the spring. Forward thinking planning means you can avoid the hustle and bustle of early spring construction, ensuring that when those first warm spring days hit, your deck is ready for relaxation and entertainment. 

    Avoid the Inconvenience of Construction: Pools are closed, deck furniture is stored away, and swing sets collect snow for many New Englanders. Most of us hunker down within the warmth of our home during the cold, winter months. Embarking on a deck replacement project during the winter allows you to undertake the construction during a season when you’re less likely to use the space for personal enjoyment. Winter is the perfect time to minimize the inconvenience of a construction project.

    Minimize Impact on Landscaping: Building during the winter can minimize the disruption to your landscaping. Flowers and grass are dormant, and the ground is often harder, which means less impact on your yard compared to construction during the growing season.

    Quicker Permitting: Permit approval and processing times are often quicker during the winter. Municipal offices typically experience lower volumes of permit applications, allowing for faster approvals.

    Don’t let winter discourage you from enhancing your outdoor living space. Embrace the advantages of an off season renovation to make sure your new deck is ready for hosting barbecues, gatherings, and relaxation as soon as spring arrives!
