The best time to build your deck isn’t necessarily during the spring or summer seasons. Here are a few reasons why you should keep an open mind to a fall deck project.
In early fall, many of us enjoy a break from the summer’s heat. The sun is still shining, but it’s not too hot to complete your deck project. Another perk to building during the fall is that there is no need to worry about ground that’s softened from melted snow or frozen from cold temperatures.
Avoid the busy season
Contractors typically have packed calendars from early spring through the end of summer. Contractors’ schedules often start to free up in the fall, so try to book your build during their open season.
Shop the deals
Shop for discounts on decking materials. Retailers are trying to clear out their stock to load up on new products for the next season. You may be able to find the exact deck style you want at a lower price later in the season.
Plan your deck design
When you build in the fall, you have more time to plan your deck design. You’ll be able to see what trends showed up during the summer season and compare it to what would be practical for your living space. You can use a deck design tool to help visualize what your deck will look like. Take your time, plan it and do it right the first time.
More time to enjoy
Building your deck this fall will give you the chance to enjoy your outdoor space throughout all of 2018!
