Why Fall and Winter Is the Perfect Time to Install a Wooden Fence
Posted October 18, 2021 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
As the cooler weather creeps back into the forecast, many homeowners feel as if their outdoor yard work must be done for the year; however, this is not necessarily the case. At Sierra Structures, we believe that fall and winter is the perfect time of year to install wooden fences and make your yard look its best. In this blog post, we will discuss some reasons for this.
Here is why fall and winter is the perfect time to install a wooden fence:
- It’s the off-season: In the springtime, many homeowners find themselves frantically running to a fence contractor to install a fence because of the beautiful, warm weather around the Triangle and to ensure their fence is finished before summer rolls in. This causes the spring season to be one of the busiest times of year for fence installation. This makes the fall and winter months better for working with a fence contractor and homeowners may even save some money on their materials.
- The summer sun can damage new wood: It is common knowledge that the sun can impact wood materials; however, this is especially true for new wood. If new wood fences are exposed to too much sunlight too quickly, it can impact the overall structure of the material and cause it to split much faster. This can ultimately cost more money in the long run.
- There is less damage to landscape: When the temperatures turn cold, the grass and other plants in your yard go dormant. This makes it easier for fence contractors to install your fence without causing any damage to the landscape such as trimming around bushes.
- Your fence will be ready for summer: Like spring installations, your fall or winter fence will still be ready when summer is finally here. Installing in a non-peak season can also help with the time frame of the project since contractors are less busy. This means you will get to experience the benefits of your fence even faster which lets you enjoy the spring and summer seasons to the fullest.
