How long does it take to install a fence?


Building and installing a fence takes a lot of prep work. You’ve selected your materials, decided on an appropriate height and level of privacy, and now you’re ready to install the fence so you can start reaping the benefits.

At this point, you may be curious: how long does it take to build a fence? There are many factors that can determine the length of the installation.

Fence size 

The project’s timeframe will depend on the size of your fence and how many feet it will measure when installed. The larger the fence, the longer it will take to install.


The type of property and its conditions will affect the timeframe of the fence installation. If the ground is rocky, trees are in the way, other environmental factors, concrete slabs or a standing fence to remove, it will require more work and man-hours to complete the project.


The weather during the workdays may affect the project length as well. Rainstorms, strong wind and snow are uncontrollable but will put a pin in the project.

Design complexity

If your fence design is detailed, customized and needs specific materials, usually, additional time is necessary to complete the fence. Due to its complexity, it isn’t the same as installing a simple fence.

Property location

The location of the project can require more time for travel and material transportation which in turn will add more hours to the project’s timeframe.

So, how long can I expect to be installing my fence?

If conditions are perfect, and the project isn’t too big or complicated, usually 2-3 days is enough time to finish the fence.

By taking the influencing factors into account, you can use this knowledge to estimate the timeframe of your project more accurately and plan accordingly.
