5 Reasons to Install Your Fence in the Winter

Spring may be just around the corner, but why wait to schedule your fence estimate until then?

In fact, there are a number of advantages to choosing to install your fence in the winter over any other time of year.

Our fence contractors can help you with your fence estimate and get started on the installation while the snow is still on the ground! Especially if it’s a mild winter, or currently a stretch of time where the temperatures are in the upper 20s and 30s, it’s actually the best time to schedule an installation.

As long as the ground isn’t frozen and there’s not a lot of heavy snow and ice, our fence experts can help you landscape, and have your fence up by springtime before the spring rush!

With that said, here are five great reasons why you should move forward with a winter fence installation:

1) Better for Saving Money on the Project

Everyone wants to be outside and planning outdoor projects during Wisconsin’s warmer months. As such, all fencing contractors are busier in the spring and summer and your project may end up taking a little longer.

So if you give your local fencing company a call this winter, they will likely be able to get you scheduled in earlier so you can enjoy your fence during the warmer months.

Want to know the best reason?

Since fencing contractors are generally less busy during these months, most fencing contractors will be willing to provide discounts for the same price!

Same fence as you would get in the summer, just done earlier and for less money? This is why many of our customers opt for a winter fence installation! Contact us for pricing today.

2) Easier to Landscape

The next great reason why you should install your fence this winter is that during the winter months, there are fewer obstacles for the fencing contractors while they work.

Since most plant life in your yard is dormant, your plants are much less likely to be damaged during this time of year.

Landscaping is much easier (and faster!) for our fencing contractors when there are fewer plants and lush tree branches in the way.

It’s also less likely for there to be pets, children, toys, and wild animals interfering with the fencing contractors. All of these are great reasons why you should install your fence this winter.

3) Offers Privacy During the Winter Months

To our point above, with less greenery in your yard, you’ll likely feel that your front and back yards are looking a little bare and not very secluded.

For example, if during the spring, summer, and fall months, you have trees and shrubs providing privacy around the perimeter of your yard, you won’t have much during the winter months to keep your family and pets feeling exposed.

But a privacy fence installation in the winter will help! Contact our team today and we’ll discuss a custom fence installation for your home.

4) Faster Fence Installation

Spring is a busy time for fencing contractors, since our customers tend to wait for the spring months to have their new fence installed.
