When is the best time of year to build a screen porch? The answer depends on what you are trying to achieve? For example, when people ask us this question at Archadeck of Charlotte, they typically are wanting to know the answer for the following reasons:
1. Are there off-season discounts?
2. Will you be able to start the project sooner at certain times?
3. Does the winter inhibit the ability to construct the project?
I will tackle the three typical reasons people ask this question. “Off-season” discounts typically means will a contractor charge less when he is not as busy? The quick answer is probably. When a contractor is in peak season, there is no reason to discount as the probably cannot keep up with the demand at full price so there is no need. Second, the winter time often has a much less lead time than the rest of the year due to what I call the “Christmas hangover”, or people thinking and spending for Christmas for almost 2 months. Finally, the weather in Charlotte does not keep us from building year around as we rarely freeze here. We do have delays due to rain/ snow, but for the most part, we build all year long!
