If you’re struggling for Christmas gift ideas for you and your family, think big. Think about a gift you’ll enjoy for years to come. Think about giving the gift of a new fence installation. If you’ve been thinking about how nice it would be to have a fenced yard, you don’t need to wait for spring or summer. You can reap the benefits this winter.
The Benefits of a Fenced Yard
There are several key benefits to having a fenced yard. Most homeowners we work with say these are their biggest reasons for having a fence installed:
A fenced yard prevents people and animals from wandering into your backyard, or your front yard if you choose to fence the front. It creates an added barrier for someone who might not have the best intentions.
If you have children or pets, a fenced yard provides an added layer of safety. They can’t wander off the moment you turn your back, and depending on the type of fence you choose, passersby may not even know they are outside.
If you choose a higher privacy fence, you get, you guessed it, privacy. You also block a view you don’t necessarily want to see. Enjoy your backyard without worrying about nosy neighbors.
Increased Property Value
An added bonus is that a fenced yard increases the value of your property if you ever decide to sell your home. For most home buyers, a home with a fence is more valuable and preferable to a similar home without a fenced yard. This is especially true for families with young children or pets, as well as home buyers who like the idea of built-in privacy and security.
Consider Fence Installation this Winter
Since the average temperatures stay above freezing in the Denver area, it is possible to schedule your fence installation for the winter months. As long as we don’t get a ton of snow or a week of frigid temperatures, we can install your fence in the winter. This has several benefits for you:
You Can Avoid the Competition
As soon as the sun begins to warm things up a bit in the springtime, homeowners hit the big box stores and hardware stores to get started on outdoor projects. They also start booking appointments with local contractors. If you’re doing it, so is everyone else. Avoid that springtime competition by scheduling your installation in the winter months.
You Get Your Fence Installed Sooner
Let’s face it. Winter is a slower time for fence contractors and other contractors who work outdoors. You can use this fact to your advantage. Because it’s a slower time for us, you may be able to get an estimate scheduled and get your design approved by the HOA (if you have one) sooner than you would in the summer months.
In addition, it’s easier and faster for us to get any needed permits because the permit offices are not as busy. This means we get your job started sooner, and your installation completed in less time than it would take in the summer.
Fence Contractors Have the Tools and Know-How for Winter Installation
Yes, we know the ground freezes. We can work around that. We have specialized tools and the experience to get the job done right. By using a jack-hammer or auger and a special concrete additive, we can dig post holes deep enough and keep the concrete from freezing until the fence posts are set. Then we can install the rest of your fence.
However, if we get a huge amount of snow or it’s colder than 25 degrees on your scheduled installation date, we’ll need to reschedule. We also will not install your fence when the ground is saturated and muddy, because that’s not conducive to the fence posts setting properly.
You’re Ready for Private Outdoor Living Come Springtime
If you’re tired of nosy neighbors looking into your yard, a winter privacy fence installation makes even more sense. By getting it installed now, you have the privacy you want in the spring, summer, and fall months without waiting weeks for an installation appointment.
