3 Reasons to Build a Deck in Winter January 10, 2020

3 Reasons to Build a Deck in Winter , Washburn, Wisconsin

You may not spend much time in your backyard during the cold months of winter, but you should be thinking about the exterior additions you can enjoy this spring and summer. A backyard deck not only adds value but also creates a relaxing space for outdoor living and entertaining. Below are three reasons you should consider hiring a general contractor in winter to build a dream deck.

Why Should You Build a Deck in Winter?

1. Staining

It takes multiple steps to build a deck addition. General contractors will work out a design and obtain permits before starting construction. After your deck has been built, a crew will need to stain and seal the wood. Cold weather is ideal for staining treatments because it’s less humid than spring and summer. Also, too much sun can cause watermarks to form. To avoid the impact of weather when staining a deck, choose a mild winter day to tackle the job.

2. Landscape Damage

General ContractorGeneral contractors will employ a crew of workers to complete the construction of your deck in a timely fashion. In winter, dormant plants will be less disturbed by crews that may need to dig in and around your landscaping. By building a deck in  winter, you’ll avoid damaging freshly planted spring shrubbery, a manicured lawn, and growing flowers.

3. Advanced Preparation

Preparing ahead gives you time to communicate your vision before construction begins. In addition, it’ll be easier to find a general contractor of your choice in the winter months before the rush of spring and summer construction begins. If you construct a deck in winter, you can enjoy it as soon as spring arrives and all through summer.
