Building a new deck allows us to extend our living area and have another space for entertaining our guests. It also allows us to relax and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without leaving the comfort of your home and boosts the curb appeal of your property. This is the reason why many homeowners invest in building new decks. If you haven’t built yours or plan to replace your old deck, spring seems to be the best time.
Advantages of building a new deck in early spring
Many homeowners may not be sure about when the ideal time is to build their new deck. Should it be spring? Here are the benefits that you will enjoy if you make your new deck in the spring.
1. Enjoy great deals
Aside from the fast consultation and installation process when building a new deck in the spring, you might also enjoy lower rates and great discounts for the decking materials. Since it is off-season, many contractors and suppliers would be willing to give discounts and lower rates to get sales and keep their skilled contractors busy during this time.
2. Easier to stain wood
The main enemy of wood, especially when you are trying to stain it, is moisture. If the air’s humidity is too high, it will take time for a pressure-treated wood to absorb the staining treatment. Thus, making the installation process longer.
3. Less wood movement
Typically, a pressure-treated wood used in building decks would need a few months to dry up so that it won’t swell in the future. If you plan to build a deck in the middle of summer, the weather conditions will be too humid, which means the wood will take longer to dry up.
4. Make the most of your new deck the whole spring season
Spring and summer are the best times to lounge on your deck and enjoy the warm weather and the spring bloom’s beautiful colors.
