When is best to start planning on a deck project?

Building a deck on your home is a great way to create more space for entertaining and relaxation. Having a deck can increase the enjoyment of living in your home as well as the value of your property.

So when is the best time to start planning your new deck project? The answer may surprise you.

The very best time to start planning your project is in the late fall. October, November, and December are the perfect times to make your plans for the following year.

Why It Makes Sense To Plan Your Deck Project In Fall

- Lock-In Rates

Material suppliers often increase the cost of building materials in the first few days of January each year. You can avoid these increases by locking in your price before the new year. Wolf Spirit Decks can preorder your materials and secure lower pricing.

- Secure Building Date

Decks are very popular with homeowners in the Chicagoland area, and reservations for building these decks fill up fast. If you wait until February or later to secure a construction date, it may not be until late summer or even the beginning of fall before you can get your deck built. By securing your date early, you can ensure more time to enjoy your deck the following year.

- Some Materials Need Lead Time

It is not uncommon to have to wait to receive some building materials. This is especially true right now with supply chain delays. Some composite materials are made-to-order, especially if you are purchasing unique colors or styles of materials. You must take into account the processing time for getting the materials you desire for your deck.

- Permitting

Some villages have longer wait times to get permits to build than others. This is because they have small building departments. When you schedule several months in advance, you can avoid any delays in obtaining permits.
