Often, homeowners will have the impression that you can’t undergo any home changes during the winter. With the winter weather, it’s just too difficult, right? Actually, you may not have to wait until winter is over to install a new wood fence for your property. In fact, choosing to install a fence during winter can present you with a few benefits that you wouldn’t receive if you wait until the spring or summer.
Faster Installation Timeframes
Installing your fence during winter may be beneficial because the fencing crews are often less busy during the winter months. This means you won’t have to wait for your project to start. Additionally, more crew members may be available to complete your project efficiently. If you wait until the spring, along with most other homeowners, you may be placed on a waitlist, and construction could take longer if the crews are juggling multiple projects at once.
Additionally, if your fence requires any permissions, it will likely take less time to receive any relevant permits during the winter. The permit offices are often just as slow during this time as the fencing companies are.
Installing a Fence During Winter Is Landscape Friendly
Building a fence in the winter when the majority of your landscape is dormant is less damaging to plants and flowers than spring or summer construction. If you have bushes or flowers near the installation area, they can be trimmed or relocated during the dormant period without suffering long-term damages.
Your grass is also dormant in the winter so that it won’t be severely affected by workers and equipment. If any replacement plants are required, or areas need to be re-landscaped, completing your fence installation in the winter will give you a chance to revive your plants come springtime.
Enjoy Your Privacy Once Spring Arrives
Finally, a significant benefit of installing your fence during winter is that once spring arrives, you already have a fence to enjoy once the weather is warm enough to gather outside. Whether you want quiet time by the pool, or you want to host a barbecue, your fence will afford you privacy and security as soon as spring starts. You won’t need to delay your plans because of construction.
