Spring is Coming - Don't Delay That Deck Project

This early March morning as I shoveled the snow from my front walk with the temperature hovering around zero, I kept telling myself that, despite the frigid temps and fresh layers of snow and ice, spring is really not far away. Homeowners like me will soon switch their thoughts from shoveling snow to planting the garden and from hibernating inside to playing ball with the dogs and kids in the yard. Front and back porches will soon switch from storing snow shovels to housing the grills and lounge chairs again.

Today Penn Fencing opens its booth at the 10 day long Home and Garden show in Pittsburgh. The Home Show always serves to kick-start our season into high gear. Our phones will soon be ringing non-stop, website orders will be pouring in, sales estimators will be visiting homes all around the area and our installation crews will be working at full capacity. Fences will be installed for pets and pools. Railings will secure and decorate porches and decks will add outdoor living space for family get-togethers.


That July 4th picnic may seem like the distant future but if you are planning on grilling on a new deck, don’t wait. If you have pool going in and are hoping to swim on Memorial Day, don’t put off the fence any longer. You will want that back yard looking perfect for the graduation party, right? So, plan the arbor or pergola now. Maybe you are planning on selling your house for that dream home. Adding curb appeal by replacing those old wooden or rusty iron railings with maintenance free vinyl or aluminum can attract prospective buyers.

Today’s temps will struggle to get up to the freezing mark, and it's been a long, cold winter but the forecast is for warmer days. The daffodils are coming and we'll all be mowing again soon enough. If you have an outdoor project in mind for this year, Don't get stuck waiting. Now is the time to get that project started.
