Why is winter a good time in Colorado for fence repair, replacement or installation?
Not only is it easier to get local Colorado Springs and Denver fencing contractors to come to your home for an estimate during winter, but you’ll do less damage to the plants in your yard, you won’t have the hassle of construction in your backyard during the summer months, you could save money and you’ll reduce the risk of the fence project damaging your yard.
Plus, there are many home improvement projects that are better done in the summer.
Here are more reasons why winter is a great time for a fence repair or construction project.
Winter is a slow time for Colorado Springs fencing contractors.
To most people, summer is the natural time to repair or install a fence. For this reason, fence contractors experience a significant increase in demand for fence repairs and installation during the warmer months.
The rush of requests for fence installation or repair that takes place from the springtime through the fall can leave you having a long wait time if you want to work with the best Colorado fencing companies.
During the Colorado winters, there’s less demand for fencing projects. This means it will be so much easier for you to get an appointment for a fence estimate with multiple fence contractors.
The faster you get your estimates, the faster you can pick a fence builder and the sooner you’ll be signing a contract and getting your fence repaired or installed!
During the winter the fencing companies near you will have fewer projects on their plate, which means they’ll have plenty of time to focus on your fence project.
Your yard may experience less damage with winter installation.
During the summer, flowers are in full bloom, shrubs and trees are covered in leaves and foliage, and a fence repair or installation could mean damaging or removing the beautiful landscape you’ve been working on for months. Why ruin that picturesque landscape with a messy fence project?
In the winter, you don’t have to worry about damaging existing plants during fence construction because everything is either dead or dormant. Most trees lose their leaves making fence installation that much easier.
Trimming the branches of sparse bushes or trees is much less complicated without leaves. If you have a jungle for a backyard, then you'll find that the progress on your fence construction will go faster in the winter.
During Colorado winters you won't have to waste any time with your fence contractor trying to figure out how to trim your Spruce tree, Aspen or Cottonwood. Or how to avoid trimming your precious blooming rosebuds. Most of these plants will enjoy the trim, but it’s so much harder to make the call when they're in their prime in the summer.
Many types of Colorado plants are dormant during the winter which makes them more resilient to any disruptions or damage they might receive during fence construction. Protecting the landscape surrounding the fence project is much less of a hassle during the cold months.
Winter fence repair or installation can save you money.
Sometimes the Colorado Springs and Denver fencing companies have a surplus of supplies or they still have goals to hit before the busy season starts. This means there’s a chance of getting reduced rates or saving on either the fencing materials or installation.
Before the busy summer hits, fencing companies need to use stored materials to make room for new ones, so some types of fencing might be cheaper to install in the winter.
The best way to figure out which fence contractors near you offer the best deals is to ask each company if they offer any winter discounts. Search Google for “fence companies near me” and call the top companies so you can get multiple estimates.
Just remember that a discount doesn’t always mean that company is a good fit for you. Use a contractor who is both reasonably priced and who fits your needs.
Fence repair now can prevent further winter damage.
Harsh winter weather can cause more issues for an already damaged fence. Wind and snow can knock over parts of the fence that are unsteady. If there’s existing rotting wood the damp weather can make it worse, and the cost of fixing the fence can increase over just a few winter storms.
By performing fence repair or replacement in the winter, you’re ensuring that existing problems with the fence won’t worsen and you’ll feel better about a long-lasting repair to your fence.
Your fence will be ready in time to enjoy spring.
The best part of a new fence is being able to enjoy it during the summer. If a fence is damaged in the spring or summer-time, getting it repaired during the winter will mean being able to savor the fence as soon as the warmer weather returns.
Repairing or replacing a fence during the spring or summer will limit the time your family can enjoy the yard and the outdoors. Even something small such as allowing the dog to be outside during warm weather without you there isn’t an option.
In the winter, it’s less likely you’ll leave the dog out so it’s easier for the fence contractor to get the job done and ready. During the winter you’ll be inside for family time, so the work by the fence company won’t disrupt your family time or activities.
How do you know you need to repair or buy a fence now?
You’re ready to install a new fence when you need it. Whether you’re buying your family a puppy for Christmas or there’s impromptu sunny weather that calls for an outdoor gathering, having the fence done now will allow those things to get done. It’s impossible to predict when you’ll need a fence, so taking care of the problem sooner rather than later will keep you ready for whatever surprise comes appears.
