Building a deck means you have to deal with a lot of variables, not the least of which is: When should I approach a deck builder to construct my project? Many customers automatically consider warmer months as the ideal time to complete a deck, but this often isn’t the case. The autumn season, which is fast approaching, is one of the ideal seasons in which to undertake an outdoor home addition, so let’s dig into why building in the Fall has so many benefits!
Colorado Springs deck builder considers Fall the ideal building season
Among the many reasons why Fall is a great time to build is the wonderful weather. While late spring and summer bring outdoor living to mind, autumn can be equally beautiful, and building during this season is often less expensive! Summer months are by far and away the most popular of the year for deck construction, and this building pattern can lead to schedule congestion, delays, and increased prices due to demand. Further, the pandemic has placed immense stress on the construction supply chain. Nationwide material shortages are expected for the foreseeable future, especially during summer, so get ahead of the curve this Fall and avoid the inflated prices and time commitments that are typical of warmer months.
Prepare for winter with the help of a Colorado Springs deck builder veteran
Winter is never very far off for Colorado Springs residents, so it is important to prepare your outdoor living appropriately. An essential component we add to many of our customer’s decks is some form of heating or fire element to combat chilly evenings and cold winter days. Among our offerings are fireplaces, chimneys, firepits, mounted heating elements, and more! If you are concerned about fire hazards, as you should be in the arid Colorado environment, do not to worry. Any fire feature we build can be gas-fed instead of wood-burning, so no need to stress about organic fuel burn restrictions that might affect your area.
Adaptable deck features like Eze-Breeze windows are also a great pairing with a heating element to keep warm during winter months. In warmer times of the year, these windows are incredibly easy to slide up to create an entirely open or screened-in area where you can fully enjoy the sun and breeze! Year round access to outdoor living is healthy for body and mind, and we have all the additions you could possibly need to make the outdoors part of your home.
Synthetic wood you should consider
The Colorado seasons can be really harsh on outdoor home additions. This is why using synthetic wood and similar materials like Azek and TimberTech is an important consideration to make. These materials are highly durable and outperform real wood in almost every way. With a Class A fire spread rating and a nearly identical aesthetic to real wood, TimberTech is highly durable and won’t experience the cracking that is typical of a wooden deck. We have a diverse range of this synthetic category to make sure your custom deck is entirely unique!

Outdoor living shouldn’t be limited by seasonal changes, and we are here to help you create a gorgeous deck you can savor for as long as you live in your home.
