building an aluminum deck

Choosing to build a deck in fall or winter may save you time and money.

Planning to build a deck? You may wonder what’s the best season in which to do so.

There are many factors to consider when planning and installing a deck. Choosing the best season to build a deck may not only save you money;  it will ensure you can enjoy your deck by summer.

Builders and contractors are less likely to be booked up in the fall or winter months. Therefore, it’s more likely that they can build your deck during this time. In the warmer months, contractors are busy and sometimes will even need to put projects on waiting lists. But getting started early in the planning of your deck should help you avoid these problems.

Off-Season Deck Perks

In the off-season, contractors will probably have more time to focus on your specific project and also have a more flexible schedule. However, it’s different for those who live in areas where it stays cold for a longer amount of time. You may not be able to build due to heavy freezing, but you can go ahead and start planning your deck. Because even getting a permit during an off-season can save you time and avoid those long lines at the permit office!

Also, keep in mind that you may even save money if you choose to build in the fall or winter months. Usually, a contractor will be more willing to negotiate on the price during the off-season. This goes for building products as well. There is no guarantee that the products will be cheaper. However, there is a better chance of discounts and incentives.
