Building a Deck in the Winter

There’s nothing like spending time in your backyard. Whether you’re enjoying a summer afternoon with your family, or entertaining guests for an evening dinner, being outside is an enjoyable experience. When it comes to spending time at home in your yard, a custom deck builder might be just the ticket to elevating your backyard time. 

If your home is without a deck, you might consider the advantages of building one this year. A custom deck builder can create a deck structure design that will transform your home and yard. You’ll love spending more quality time outside with your friends and family enjoying the scenery and weather from your new deck. 

A new deck can provide additional space to your home and outdoor living area. From dining to relaxing to having a fantastic place for the kids to play, a deck is an excellent way to enhance your time outside. You may even have an existing deck that needs a complete facelift to make it functional and fun. Whether you need a custom deck structure design, or your current deck needs some help, a professional deck builder can transform your outdoor living space into the deck of your dreams. 



If you are ready to build a new deck or repair your current one, Dupont Construction and Remodeling can help. With years of experience, our team of experts will create the custom deck of your dreams, or completely renovate your current deck. We strive to provide exceptional service and craftsmanship, using only the best materials. You’ll love having an outdoor retreat to relax and enjoy the view. A new deck can add value to your home, as well as provide additional space for your family and guests. 

Decks are a fantastic place to sit and soak up the sun, enjoy a cozy fire pit, or eat a freshly grilled meal. Now that you’re ready to move forward with your custom deck dreams, you might be wondering, “when is the best time of year to have a deck built?” If you want your deck ready for the spring and summer months, consider building your deck in winter. 

Have Your Deck Ready For Spring When You Are

One advantage of building your deck in the winter months is that it will be ready to go as soon as the first spring days start to show. Instead of waiting for the weather to clear up and the days to become longer so you can start on your project, you’ll already be enjoying your new space. 

As soon as the warm weather starts, you’ll be ready to spend some time outside on your new deck grilling, lounging, or entertaining guests. There’s no better way to start the summer off right than with a new deck. You won’t have to use up valuable leisure time with your deck waiting for it to be built. 


Avoid Scheduling Conflicts

Many custom deck builders book up very quickly for the spring and summer months. If you wait to start your project, you may end up being at the mercy of your contractor. While you might have been hoping to start your deck first thing in the spring, you may find it challenging to find a company who isn’t already too busy. 

Building your deck in the winter allows for more scheduling options, and guarantees your deck will be ready to go when you want to enjoy the better weather. Why wait until spring to tackle your deck project if you can be enjoying using it instead?

Your Deck Doesn’t Have To Be Seasonal

When you think of enjoying your deck, you most likely think of hot summer days and long evenings. While using your deck in the summer months is a popular time of the year to take advantage of it, may custom options allow you to enjoy your deck year round. 

If you’re planning a covered deck, there is no reason why you can’t build it in the winter. You’ll be able to start enjoying it right then. A covered deck provides shelter from the elements and allows you to still spend time in the fresh open air. Adding features to your deck like a fireplace and custom lighting will add ambiance and functionality. 

A four-season room is an excellent way to make use of your outdoor living space all year long. These comfortable and highly sought after additions provide extra living space to your home and allow you to take in beautiful views. With quality materials and a controlled climate, your four-season room is the perfect place to spend time. Watch the snowfall in the winter from the comfort of your four-season room and enjoy the natural light and open space. 

These fantastic custom decks and variations are easy to love all year. There’s no reason to wait until summer to start creating additional living space and enjoying it. Whether a covered deck, a four-season room or a traditional deck, there is an opportunity to use it throughout any season.
