The holiday season, despite all the cold weather and the shorter days, is a time of gift-giving, family get-togethers and much more! During the whirlwind of festivities, make sure you treat your home to a custom deck from the professionals at TrueDecks!
Did you know that one of the best times to build a deck is in the winter?
One reason is due to the quality of installation. Wood curing is extremely important, and the winter months is the perfect time for that to happen. Because the winter months have less humidity, pressure treated wood can stabilize itself and dry more consistently and evenly.
On the other hand, when building a deck in the summer, the wood is exposed to higher concentrations of humidity. On top of that, the hot sun beating down on wood will undergo expansion and contraction which can cause it to potentially crack or warp. Because the sun doesn’t beat down on your deck as much in the winter, there is less potential danger to the structural integrity of the deck.
Building a deck in the winter is also a great idea because there’s much less interruption. Since many homeowners typically spend less time outdoors in the winter, deck construction is much less likely to get in the way of backyard activities.
