People install fences for many reasons including privacy, safety for pets and children, and improved aesthetics for their properties. If you would like to enjoy these benefits, it may be time to budget for a new fence. Find out the best time to install your fence for maximum enjoyment.
Most people install fences in the summer when the weather is warm, and they want to enjoy the backyard or swimming pool area in privacy. However, this is the time of year when contractors have the most work. That means that it could take some time to line up the right team to install the fence, delaying its completion. Summer construction also disrupts your enjoyment of the yard during the warm summer months.
If you can get organized, you can schedule installation of your wood, vinyl, decorative, metal, or chain link fence in early spring. By contacting contractors in January or February, you can get the work lined up as soon as the weather turns a bit warmer, typically late March. By beating the rush, you can ensure that you have a new fence long before your first summer barbeque.
Think of it as another task for spring cleaning. After all, do you really want construction going on when you’re trying to enjoy your yard during the warmest time of the year? Chances are, you’re preparing your garden, planting, and making other outdoor improvements in spring anyway. So, building a fence at this time of year may be less disruptive than waiting until summer.
Fall Season Installations
If you can’t build your fence in the spring, early fall provides a great window to complete the work. Even if you still use your yard, with the cooler weather and autumn rain, it may be best to schedule your fence installation in the fall. That way, you can have it completed before the weather turns colder, and your new fence will be available for the next spring and summer.
Many people avoid winter when it comes to fence installation. However, if the ground remains unfrozen, you can still complete the installation. Since construction crews aren’t typically booked to capacity during the winter, they will likely finish the work faster. Additionally, installing a fence in the winter allows you to let your pet out in the yard safely, while you remain warm and cozy inside.
