In Calgary, fence builders must contend with the fact that the ground may be permanently frozen for months – but we’re used to working around that.
Other factors besides weather can lead to delays in constructing a fence.
So, how long should it take to build a fence?
How much depends on the type of fence you want to build?
Which other factors apart from climatic conditions can blow out your fence-building timeline?
These questions and more are answered below.
Most home, business or acreage property owners who decide to build a fence need it yesterday!
Realistically, there is a thorough process that needs to be followed before breaking ground on your new fence. There can be no corner-cutting.
Once you book your fence installers for a convenient date and start work on your fence, though, you should not have to wait more than a few days before it is complete.
With Relia-Built Fencing, once you approve our quotation (our quotes are FREE and always will be), we will provide you with an accurate timeline for installation.
At the busiest times of year (spring, summer generally), the delay to start the job may get pushed out a little but it won’t impact the time it takes to complete it once started.
Some contractors promise a “two-to-three-day job” but the installation days can be spread over weeks – posts one day, rails a week later and gates a week after that. With us, installations are completed in a one-time slot.
So, most residential fences can be completed in a day or two after the start date while larger-scale projects for businesses or farms may take a few days.
