If you’re thinking of having a fence installed, don’t wait until the spring to get to work. We can tell you from experience that starting now might just be the best option for you. Here are the four benefits of getting your fence installed during the winter months.

1. Cost Savings

Some of the best prices and deals of the year are available offseas
on. You can save money with wintertime fence installation by taking advantage of end-of-season savings on quality fence products. When you shop during the winter, you can stretch your budget and check out fencing options that might be more expensive during the spring and summer months. You will also have more time to work with installers and designers to figure out the best ways to save money on your project.

2. Faster Installation Time

Most homeowners think about their fencing needs once spring and summer come around. Get ahead of the crowd. Fence installers have more flexibility in their schedule for wintertime fence installation. For example, we can likely dedicate more time and  provide a larger crew for your project and get your fence installed faster.

If you have to make sure your project is up to code, the winter season is also a great time to check your local ordinance, zoning code, and homeowner’s association rules. Get all the bureaucracy squared away now as building permit staff are less likely to be busy during the winter.

3. No Landscaping Worries

Worried about your garden? Installing a fence during the winter might be the best option for you. During the winter, a lot of your landscape will go dormant which means your plants are less likely to be damaged. If your prized roses are exactly where you want your new fence to be, the rose bushes can be trimmed and relocated without harm.

In the event that you do want to re-landscape your backyard, installing your fence in the winter allows you to start planting right away come spring. You don’t have to worry about landscaping around a fence that hasn’t been installed yet.

4. Enjoy the Spring

Homeowners who get fence installation taken care of in the offseason are ahead of the game when the spring rush arrives. This is probably the biggest benefit! While your neighbors are busy scheduling their fence installation projects, you can spend time enjoying your finished fence. Why not welcome springtime in style by kicking up your feet and relaxing in your new backyard?

Don’t wait until spring to enhance your backyard. The best time of year to install a fence is the winter because you can save time, money, and enjoy the fruits of your investment as soon as the snow melts.

    In your article, you stated that if you have to make sure your project is up to code, the winter season is also a great time to check your local ordinance, zoning code, and homeowner’s association rules. My wife called me at work this morning because we had a lot of deer in our backyard and she didn’t know what to do. I wonder what type of fencing material would be best for keeping specific animals out of our yard.

    I like that you mentioned that some of the best prices will be available during the winter. My wife and I recently moved into a new home that doesn’t have a fence. For privacy and safety purposes, I want to have one installed. Doing it now during the winter time would be great, especially if costs are low and more businesses are available!
