Four Reasons Fall is the Best Time to Plan a New Deck

Exterior & Landscaping | HGDI ADMIN

Turn an end of season’s regret into opportunity. The benefits of planning your deck in the fall are significant.

When summer’s ease turns to falling leaves, a new deck may seem like a project that is best put off until next year. This thinking may be a mistake.

Let us start with that missed opportunity. When you start now in the fall, you know you’ll have your deck next season, with no worries about overbooked contractors, out-of-supply materials, unexpected delays or plain old procrastination. Deck builders should either be able to fit you in now, or put at the head of the line for next year. 

Cost savings may be one of the most significant reasons for planning your deck in the fall. Many contractors offer significant discounts to entice homeowners who may have been thinking about getting a deck but not yet committed. These businesses hope to make the decision easier, and anyone who pursues a new deck may save some cash. 

Fall is a great time for yard clean up. Knowing that your new deck is coming and exactly how it will be placed gives you the opportunity to work on your yard, integrating coordinating features, installing lighting, repairing or painting the outside of your home, or just prepping the area. 

Having more time to plan your deck by starting in the fall may just mean that you will be unlike many of your neighbors. That is, you will be able to get exactly what you want, from deck design to materials to accessories. You can take the time to test out different decking materials, or order the perfect outdoor furniture to complement your new deck. Browse hundreds of different deck ideas on HomeandGardenDesignIdeas.com, and save them to share with friends or contractors. You can also find professional deck designers and deck installers in your local area.
