It’s a common misconception that decks can only be built during the warmer months. In fact, the opposite is true. The best time to build a custom deck in the Greater Denver area is during the winter. Find out why!
You may wonder, is it okay to build a deck in the winter? The answer is a resounding, “Yes!” Not only is it okay, it’s recommended!
Winter is the Best Time of Year to Build a Custom Deck – Hands Down!
Don’t let the colder weather and snow fool you: wintertime in Denver Metro Area is optimal for deck construction. If you’re interested in designing and building a deck, we encourage you to do so during the winter months.
Digging holes and pouring concrete is just as doable during the winter months as any other time of year. Despite the drop in temperature, the ground is still pliant, and the building process is as seamless as ever.
Your Dedicated Greater Denver Deck Builder Shares the Benefits of Building a Deck During the Winter Months
There are many benefits to building a custom deck during the winter. Here are just a few:
- It’s easier to get on a reputable builder’s schedule.
You will likely wait some time to get on a reputable builder’s schedule during the spring and summer. As the demand for outdoor building lightens over the winter months, you should have more luck scheduling at a time that is convenient for you.
- The ground is more stable in the winter.
During the spring, there is more moisture in the ground due to thawing, making the ground less stable. When building a deck during the winter months, the ground is drier, and any damage to your lawn and plants during the construction process will recover nicely in the spring.
- Your deck will be ready when you want it the most – this spring!
If you complete your deck construction in the wintertime, your deck will be 100% ready for use as soon as the warmer weather rolls around. And, in Greater Denver, you can likely enjoy time outdoors on your deck during the winter months as well!
- Natural wood dries more evenly when the air is cold and dry.
Pressurized lumber, used when constructing a natural wood deck, is filled with water that dries over time. When the air is humid, the wood can take longer to dry. If the weather is too hot, it can cause warping during the drying process. The benefit of building a natural wood deck over the winter months is that the wood will dry evenly and be less likely to bend or warp.
