Depending on who you ask, there will be a lot of different responses when you ask about the best time of the year to install a residential fence. Planning a fence installation generally revolves around someone’s budget and free time, but what if you just started saving for a residential fence? When time of the year should you install that fence? Let’s take a look at a few fence installation considerations.
Fence Installation in the Winter
You’ve probably noticed that most fence installation takes place during the spring and summer. What this means is that fencing companies are normally booked solid, and it can be difficult for you to schedule a time that works for you. Instead of waiting to have a residential fence installed when everyone else is, the winter is a great time of the year to fit a fence installation into your schedule. You won’t have to compete for a time slot, and you won’t feel like you have to have an installation rushed.
Residential Fence Installations When the Ground is Frozen
Contrary to popular belief, the colder weather will not affect residential fence installations. Even if the ground is frozen, a professional fence installation service like Hercules Fence of Norfolk and Virginia Beach can use a power auger to dig holes for the posts.
Fence Installation Before it Snows
During the winter, the only thing a fence installation isn’t immune to is constant rain or snow that melts and fills up the post holes with water and more than few inches of snow that prevents a run of a string line. So, that means right now is a great time to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather have a residential fence installed!
