4 Reasons Fall/Winter is the best time for a fence replacement.
This article will outline four reasons why Fall or Winter may be the best time for your strata to do a full fence replacement. We felt we needed to address this topic in case you are considering deferring your project to next summer.
If you are in an area that gets tons of snow, you may not be the intended audience for this post. We are based here in Vancouver, British Columbia. We don’t get a lot of snow, and for the most part. Fall and Winter are very opportunistic times to capitalize on a full fence replacement project. We are going to give you four reasons regarding why.
Contractors will have more time, and your fence could be installed faster.
Spring/Summer is the peak season in the fence business. Contractors are usually slammed during this time. The average consumer’s mentality does shift when Fall and Winter roll around. Most people are no longer fixated on making improvements to their yard. They start thinking about a multitude of other things. They retire their tools for the season and move on to other activities. This means good fence contractors are ready and available to help you with your project, which means you’ll be able to install that new fence in a flash by the contractor that is likely to do the best job for the most reasonable rate. They will have an abundance of time as it is not peak season. There is also a bonus of the contractor’s ability to assign more people to the project, which will cause the entire job to go quicker because of all the extra hands.
The weather is more likely to be on your side.
Remember the heatwave during the Summer of 2021? That backed things up and created issues for trades. It’s hard to get jobs done on time when it’s 42 degrees outside. The Fall and Winter seasons in the lower mainland create very good working conditions for fence installers. Cold temperatures can make the cement pouring and digging process much easier.
Less disruption to gardens and landscaping.
One of the advantages of replacing your fence in the Fall or Winter is that you won’t need to disrupt your Garden when your flowers are in bloom. After leaves have fallen and flowers have died down, many strata residents find Fall and Winter To be the ideal time to replace their fence. This leads us directly to our next point.
Free up some time to enjoy the sun next Summer.
Wouldn’t it be better to spend your Summer entertaining and sipping cold beverages rather than coordinating and dealing with a full fence replacement project? The world goes into a state of hibernation in the Wintertime. If your strata is able to hustle during those months, you can set yourself up for an awesome summer and get a lot done in the process! Plan a trip this Summer and deal with your rotting fence this Fall or Winter! Thank us for the idea later.
Bonus Tip – Your property value will go up.
Generally speaking, a great fence will enhance your strata’s curb appeal and property value. If you choose a stylish cedar fence, vinyl fence or aluminum fence that matches the exterior of your building, it can make the entire property much more aesthetically appealing. This will help when buyers come to visit. Many young families often buy in strata’s, especially here in the lower mainland. If they attend an open house, it will be a huge plus to see a stylish and robust fence surrounding the yard’s perimeter for their kids and dogs.
