The Pros and Cons of a Winter Fence Installation

You don’t have to wait until spring to get a fence! Fences may be erected on frozen ground even during the winter, unless the earth is frozen 7 inches deep.  Let us tell you how installing a fence in winter is better than the rest of the year.

  1. Most individuals aren’t having their fences built this time of year, so fence installation companies will have more time to devote to you.
  2. Because the supply is greater than demand, fence material costs are generally cheaper this time of year.
  3. By putting up a fence in the winter, you’ll be able to use your yard right away when spring arrives – have a backyard or pool party on the first warm day of the year!

Installation in the winter, on the other hand, has certain problems. The main thng is you have to work around the weather.

It might take longer for your fence to be built due to weather delays. Prepare yourself for setbacks, you’ll likely still get the fence of your dreams faster than in the warm season, since fence contractors generally have more time to devote to you with business being slower.

Winter Fence Installation

The fence contractor must be more creative when it comes to installing a winter fence. We may, for example, utilize large tarps to protect ourselves and your new fence from the elements while still getting work done.

Finally, be sure you’re ready for post-installation clean up. A normal fence install will need cleanup but wintertime installs will find leaves are all over the lawns, and snowmelt can also cause muddy fencelines. You’ll want to use light pressure washers to clean fenceposts after installation.

Fencing installation in winter can be more physically demanding in some ways, than the rest of the year. Hauling materials, digging postholes, and wrestling large fence panels against freezing temperatures is not fun.  That is why, when it comes to building a winter-time fence, we strongly advise you to hire a professional.
