Many of us have New Year’s resolutions set for 2024. Diets, exercise plans, and perhaps even efforts to travel more. However, most people aren’t thinking of building a deck in their backyard just yet. Lots of people neglect to think about building a new deck until the spring or summer when deck-building companies are at their busiest. By this time, everyone is booked, demand is high, and you have to schedule your build for weeks or months out. Planning your deck building during the new year comes with many advantages.
The best part of having your deck built in the winter is the availability in the schedule of decking experts. Demand is often lower for decks during the colder months which allows for faster installation time and there is less competition over limited time.
Another benefit of building your deck in the winter is the ability to enjoy it when warmer weather emerges. Because the deck is already built by the end of spring or the beginning of summer, you don’t have to wait. As soon as the weather is warm enough, you can head out to your new deck and enjoy the Michigan weather!
Furthermore, deck costs may be lower during the winter. Both prices on decking materials and labor may be lower as demand is lesser in the winter. It isn’t too early to get started with your deck building. Line it up today with Miles Bradley!
Lumber prices are too high. Although COVID restrictions have ended, the supply chain is still suffering. As a result, the current cost of lumber is sky-high. For people looking for lumber decks, you should be expecting to pay a large sum of cash and expect a long project timeline. However, there are other options besides lumber decks. In fact, you should be looking at composite decks.
Without a doubt, lumber is the default material for decking. After all, it has been used for decking for centuries. Although wooden decks have to be constantly maintained and stained, it is still in high demand. There is a natural look, feel, and smell that comes from wooden decks. When pressure treated, wooden decks can be very affordable.
However, the current supply chain shortage has made wood decks more expensive than before. As a result, the price of materials has escalated. Furthermore, the large demand for lumber has made it harder to get shipments in.
While wood decking is traditional, composite decking is an excellent choice that is becoming more popular! Composite decking is crafted through organic and synthetic compounds. As a result, it is resistant to rot and decay. In addition, it is crack resistant and scratch resistant. Composite decks are also low maintenance and do not require staining. Instead, you can choose from a large variety of colors and types of composite decking like Trex.
The price of lumber is not going down anytime soon. However, composite decks are a great alternative. At Miles Bradley, we install wood and composite decks! All of your decks are installed by professionals who have decades of experience. In addition to decks, Miles Bradley has other services and products for your customers.
