Summer is coming to a close, and fall is almost upon us. This means leaves, pumpkins, and a chance to improve your home’s yard. One way you can improve your home’s look, and functionality is to install a new fence. Fences make your yard look more formal while also supplying you with extra protection against unwanted guests. Most people decide to get fences installed in the spring and summer because of the great weather those seasons offer, but fall is another great time for an installation if you haven’t done one yet. Here is why you should install fencing this fall.
Take Advantage of a Cheaper Fencing Season
Spring and summer are the busier times of year for fencing contractors. In fall, business isn’t as busy, so you’re more likely to get your fence installed for a cheaper price. This is largely in part because fencing companies may have leftover pieces they didn’t use in the summer. These pieces are still perfectly fine to use, but contractors may offer a discount because they want to use up those materials.
Your Fencing Installation Takes Less Time
Again, fall is a less busy time of year for fencing contractors. This means scheduling an appointment is much easier. There’s also a higher chance that the company you hire will have the materials you need on hand, which isn’t always the case in summer when demands are higher. It may also be easier to get building permits because there aren’t as many building projects that get considered as we get closer to the year’s end.
The Weather is Still Pleasant
Spring and summer are popular times for fencing installations because of their beautiful weather conditions, but fall offers great weather too. The temperatures are mild enough that it isn’t a huge burden on anyone working on your fence. With such great weather, your fencing project will often get completed with minimal delays.
Minimal Damage Will Come to Your Landscape
It’s during these cooler times of year that your landscape becomes more dormant. This keeps your landscape from getting as damaged when renovations are taking place. Then, once spring arrives, you’ll have your fence already installed without having to worry about causing any lasting damage.
