Is It Possible to Have a Fence Installed in Winter?


You don’t have to wait until spring to have a commercial fence installed. Winter fence installation is possible! Despite the cold temperatures, winter installation has many advantages. Here’s what you need to know.


The challenges of winter fence installation

Installing a fence during the winter requires special equipment. For example, large machinery must be used to dig deep holes into the frozen ground. Additionally, slush and snow can create unfavourable soil conditions. Moreover, concrete requires additives to prevent it from freezing. For these reasons, it’s best to hire a professional for your winter fencing project.


The benefits of winter fence installation

Here are three reasons why you should have your commercial or industrial fence installed after the snow flies.


1. You can save money and time. Spring and summer are hectic times for fencing contractors. However, business tends to slow down in the winter. Therefore, some fencing companies offer discounts and other incentives to attract new customers and keep their employees working.


Moreover, fencing contractors have fewer projects during the winter. This means your fence installation won’t be at the bottom of a very long waiting list. There’s a much better chance your project will be completed on time.


2. You can better utilize your property. Does your industrial enterprise slow down during the winter months? If so, this is a great time to have your fence installed. When spring arrives, your fence will be complete, and you won’t have to worry about fencing contractors, vehicles, machinery and construction materials getting in the way of your business. In short, winter fence installation optimizes the use of your property.


3. It conserves your existing landscaping. Trees, shrubs and grass go dormant during the winter, which means that fencing contractors won’t damage your existing landscaping while they work. Moreover, the lack of foliage makes it easier for fencing installers to do their work and complete the job in a timely manner.
