If you need to have a sports fence installed or replaced, summer may not be the best time to do so. Here’s why you should consider installing the fence in spring or fall instead. You’ll save money Fencing contractors get busier in the summer, which means that their rates are likely to be higher during this time. On the other hand, if you hire them during the spring, fall or even winter, you’ll likely pay less for the job. In fact, since fencing companies often try to ensure there’s enough work to keep their best workers on payroll during slower months, they might even offer discounts or specials to drum up business. You’ll save time Hiring contractors during the spring or fall ensures that they’ll be able to get to your project faster than if you hire them during the busy season. They’ll also be less rushed and able to take as much time as needed to ensure that everything is done according to plan. In some cases, they may even commit more workers to your job and complete it faster than they might have in the summer. You’ll limit landscape damage Installing a fence involves digging holes for the fence posts. It also means that there will be a lot of traffic on your property. If you get your fence installed in the summer, you’ll need to fix any issues with the terrain before the area can be used again. However, if you have it done in the spring or fall, you can fold this work into your usual landscaping refresh, meaning you’ll save both time and money. You’ll avoid downtime Summer is the busiest season for most sports. If you decide to get a fence installed or replaced during this peak time, it’s likely that the field won’ be usable until the work is done. Given that fencing contractors are extremely busy during the summer, this could take weeks. Regulars will need to find a new place to go and if you work with local leagues to hold tournaments, any significant delay in the fencing project could interrupt the game schedule.
