If you've been thinking about sprucing up the backyard with a new deck, procrastination may finally be your friend. With chilly weather still weeks away, take advantage of this time of year and an even bigger advantage of falling labor costs and build the affordable outdoor space of your dreams before it’s too late.
Score A Deal
Since late summer and early fall are considered "off season" for most deck builders and retailers, some offer price incentives this time of year to entice homeowners. Taking the time to obtain price quotes from various contractors and retailers may pay off with a cost savings on materials and labor.
For more information about Trex prices on our steel substructure, decking and railing, consult our deck cost calculator before heading out to your local lumberyards and big box stores. Our new calculator tool provides an estimate of your material costs, based upon the anticipated size of your deck.
Keep Your Cool
The installation of decking and railing involves spending a significant amount of time in the great outdoors, especially if you've decided to handle the labor yourself, which many Trex® deck owners do. In many regions of the country, late summer and early fall may actually be preferable for taking on such an extensive home improvement project. And if you live in an area of the country where the temperatures routinely soar above 90 during the summer months, this time of year may actually be the most enjoyable time to hit the deck.
Quit procrastinating. It may just be the right time to make your move.
