You don’t have to wait until winter is over to start working on your home improvement projects. We are open and ready to install your new fence or railing year-round! In fact, winter could very well be the best time of year to take advantage of our many services.

1. Landscaping

If you have a lot of landscaping in your backyard, installing a fence in the winter might be easier on your plants and shrubs. Since your yard is dormant, your plant life and lawn are less likely to be damaged during fence installation. Also, not having to worry about harming your plants can make the process a bit quicker for the installation crew or yourself if you choose to DIY. When spring does finally come, you will be ready to start gardening, without waiting or worrying about when your fence will be installed.

2. Curb Appeal

On the subject of dormant plant-life, it’s likely in these winter months that your front and back yards are going to look a little bare and lack-luster. A new fence can help with that in multiple ways. A tall privacy fence will help shield your backyard when it’s not looking it’s best, while an ornamental fence will enhance your home’s beauty with or without the help of flowers and shrubs.

3. Summer Ready

Once late spring and summer arrive, you will be anxious to spend more time outside. If your fence or railing project is already complete, there will be no interruption in your outdoor activities and no reason to leave the beach to meet an estimator or installation crew.
