While there is little doubt that summer is arguably the best time for you to enjoy your deck, it is a little bit more challenging to say when the best time is to build a deck. In a perfect world, deck builders and homeowners alike would have all the time they need to choose the shape, size, and type of decking that is most appropriate. However, most homeowners won’t even decide to build a composite deck until the summer, but the fall might be the best time to begin the deck building process. Read on to learn why!
Timing is Key When Building a Composite Deck
With advanced planning and a bit of patience, there is a much better way to go about building the deck of your dreams. The off-seasons of fall and spring can be some of the best times to build a brand new composite deck. The reasons are simple. Homeowners can be much more thorough in their research and become certain that they’re hiring the very best contractor to design and build their composite deck. As the summer rush comes to an end, more people turn their focus onto things they didn’t have time to tend to before. This means contractors who specialize in outdoor spaces won’t be as busy and have a lot more availability in their schedules to discuss, meet, and work on the project.
The Benefits of Fall Composite Deck Building
Homeowners can benefit by scheduling their decking project for fall because it reduces the landscape’s overall impact. Heavy equipment used for site prep and excavation work could sometimes damage lawns and plants on the property. However, as summer turns to fall, most plants’ natural state has shifted from growth to dormancy. This means any exterior damage caused by a lot of foot damage or construction equipment will be much more easily absorbed and repaired by the following spring. While most outdoor construction projects can go into the fall, cold ground temperatures make it hard to dig post footings for your new deck. The good news, though, is that if you are building or resurfacing a new deck with some composite decking, its inert ingredients will allow it to be installed regardless of the time of year or temperature. Since it is resistant to moisture, composite decking experiences only a bit of expansion and contraction from one season after another, meaning it will remain safe and secure as the seasons pass.
