Homeowners who are interested in putting up a fence will find it more beneficial to start the project in the fall. With the summer temperature slowly decreasing, the first benefit is being able to complete the work without being outside in the heat and humidity. You will get more work done during the best part of the day without having to wait until it cools off in the evenings.
Here are some of the benefits of installing a fence in the fall:
Permits Are Approved Faster
Another advantage to a fall fence project is that it is much easier to get a permit. With the busiest time for home renovations being May through June, applying for a permit to build a fence in the fall will take much less time.
Fall Discounts May Apply
Fences can be costly. If you start pricing your fence around the first of August, you will have a good idea what the fence will cost you in the fall. If you can find enough stock to do your entire yard when you go to get your materials, you may receive a discount for helping the store clear out a portion of its inventory.
No Spring Time Rush
Waiting until spring to install a fence means constantly rushing so that you can get it finished before everyone wants to be outside. Doing all of the work in the fall, especially after you’ve finished up your fall cleaning, allows you to kill two birds with one stone and eliminate the rush to get the job done when spring rolls around. With the fence already set up, you will be able to sit back and relax at the first sign of spring.
