Why Should I Install A Deck This Winter?


We build decks year-round, but you might find it most convenient for us to build yours in the winter. Firstly, we’d be constructing at a time when your yard is not in use; secondly, winter is usually the most affordable season to do so. You get to beat the spring rush and use your deck as soon as it gets warm!


How Is It Possible To Build In the Winter?


Believe it or not, winter has the most bearable weather conditions for most builders. Additionally, the cold temperatures usually help with the digging process for the footings, which means you could have a better foundation. The hard ground also helps to protect the rest of your landscaping, as opposed to loose dirt or mud being moved around in the Spring. In composite and wood decks, building in the winter is also suitable for lumber. The material will dry and stabilize more consistently with less humidity, meaning less movement on the deck framing.


The Best Incentive of All


Build with Greentree Outdoor Living this winter to receive 0% interest financing for 24 months or enjoy 10% OFF your deck! We serve homeowners in Edmonton and the surrounding areas. So don’t sleep on the benefits of installing your deck during the winter.
