Why Building a New Deck in the Fall is the Best Time of Year

It’s time to say goodbye to summer, but did you know that fall is the best time of year to build a new deck? We compiled a list of three reasons why you should consider building a deck this season.


It’s “off-season” for many builders so you can beat the spring rush by beginning your deck construction early. Builders aren’t receiving as many jobs, making them more available to complete projects than in the spring or summer.


Weather during the fall season is more predictable than weather during the spring or summer seasons making it easier for your builder to get the job done in a shorter amount of time. The cooler weather also dries out the landscape making it easier to build a deck in the yard without causing significant damage to your property. 

Lower Cost

Oftentimes you’ll find builders or manufacturers who offer pre-season incentives such as deck lighting packages or other deals. You can even consider negotiating a fire feature for those upcoming winter nights. 

At E&K, we often work with WOLF PVC Railing, an easy-to-install system that provides both design versatility and budget flexibility, and is compatible with any deck or porch. Give us a call to book a consultation and get your deck ready before winter.
