Most, if not all, homeowners believe that summer is the best time to invest in a deck. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s an assumption that makes a lot sense, since warmer weather is deck weather. However, it’s for this very same reason that summer is not the best time of year to buy a deck. To avoid the high demand for decks in this busy season and the consequential wait time, the best time of year to install a deck is actually in the winter. If you’re confused, you’re not alone. Here’s some more helpful information about why winter decks are the smarter investment:
Since summer is a very busy time for deck builders, investing in one during that season can lead to longer waits and higher prices. It’s a no-win scenario that will prevent you from being able to fully enjoy your new deck during those few, precious warmer Wisconsin months. To get the most out of your deck come summer, you should instead invest during the off-season—fall and winter.
Off-Season Deck Perks
During the off-season, contractors will not only have ample time to focus on your decking project, but their flexible schedules will likely allow them to complete your new deck installation quickly. Even in Wisconsin, where cold weather seems to last a lifetime, planning for a winter deck is a smart move as it gets the gears turning—saving you time and expense. Speaking of savings, off-season projects are usually paired with product promotions, which can potentially reduce the cost of your overall decking project. So make sure to do your research and communicate with your contractor!
