Are you considering putting up a new fence this year? Are you wondering when the best time to book your appointment is? We believe the best time to have your fence installed is the early spring. Read on to learn more about why you should book an early spring fence installation, along with some things to know before calling.
Beat the Rush
You may think that the best time to have contractors come in would be late spring or early summer, once the weather really gets nice, but there are a few problems with this line of thinking. For one, everyone else is thinking the same thing too, which creates a rush of demand for all the best fence installation companies. You are far more likely to get a timely booking if you call a reputable fence contractor early in the season.
Why not get your yard looking amazing right after winter ends so you can enjoy your transformed lounge area for as long as possible? It is very satisfying to get one of the bigger items off of your to-do list before the nicest days of the year begin. Think of all the extra days you will have to relax in your transformed backyard if you get it done early!
Before you call a fence installation company, it is a good idea to check your local building codes and bylaws to see if there is anything the contractor needs to know about. You should also take a look at your property lines to understand exactly where you can and cannot build your fence. You should have a style of fence in mind before you call as well. Depending on your budget, you may consider anything from wood fencing to PVC fencing to ornamental iron.
One thing to note is that sometimes the weather during the early spring in Ottawa may not cooperate. The ground frost needs to have thawed before work can begin, because frozen ground is hard to break and will slow things down. If there has been a lot of rain or a late snow, the ground may be too muddy to work with. Not to mention working in and around your lawn while it is wet may cause damage to your grass. However by booking your installation early, you’ll be reserving a priority spot so work can begin as soon as the weather cooperates.
