When you are layering up like the abominable snowman and warming up your car 20 minutes before you have to drive it, you are probably not thinking about that beautiful deck you’ve been dreaming about having built this summer. Well, you should be! That first beautiful day in April will roll around and while all of your friends and neighbors will be hustling to find a good contractor who can fit them in yesterday you can already be enjoying your brand new deck.
Finding a reliable contractor to work within your timeline in the summer months can be challenging. The waiting list in the warmer months are typically twice as long as in the colder months so scheduling work to be done before the busy season begins can ensure that the project will be scheduled on your terms. We also always offer discounted rates from October through March beginning with an instant savings of 10% off the entire project as well as our other monthly promotions.
Time and money are not the only advantages in getting a head start on making your outdoor dreams come true. The lower humidity and orientation of the sun in the winter can also benefit the outcome of the project. Whether choosing composite, vinyl, PVC, or hardwoods to construct the decking boards, the foundation will be built with a pressure treated wood. Wood has a natural tendency to expand and contract, or give and take while drying and setting through a process referred to as “curing”. Very high humidity and hot sun from the summer months can cause cracking, warping, and other damage to the wood during the curing process. Building your deck in winter months, where there is a lower level of humidity, will allow the wood to dry more consistently and evenly without undergoing the negative effects from curing in extreme heat and humidity.
