Building Decks Year-Round: Can you build a deck in the winter?

Fresh View Construction in Tacoma, WA - Building Decks Year-Round

Winter deck building - is it feasible, or do construction companies like ours hibernate? This common question and assumption often arise, but the truth is, we at Fresh View Construction are among those who embrace the winter months to build decks.

Winter Deck Building: A Cold-Weather Reality

Our commitment to year-round deck construction demonstrates that the idea of winter deck building is more than just a notion. It's a reality. While building decks during winter does require a bit more planning and dedication, it's entirely achievable. Facing the elements, including cold winds and frigid precipitation, takes a certain strength, but dressing appropriately makes it a manageable task. There are plenty of days during the winter when it feels refreshing to be outside, and, just like any other season, we can overcome weather-related delays to ensure your deck is ready for the warmer months.

Making the Most of Winter Construction

There are both advantages and challenges when it comes to winter deck building. Building during the winter means less damage to dormant grass and vegetation, and you'll find that construction pathways are less affected. Additionally, winter is a time when many homeowners put off exterior projects, which can work to your advantage. You have your pick of builders, and some may even offer discounts or reduced material costs during the offseason. Of course, there are challenges, like the inconvenience of holiday gatherings without a deck and the potential for project delays due to heavy snowfall and reduced daylight. Despite these challenges, choosing to build your deck in the winter can set you up for great memories when spring arrives.
