One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our clients is about how long they can expect it to take before their fence is complete. There isn’t a single overarching answer we can give to this question, as it really depends on a variety of factors. We usually say “a few days,” but more specific timelines for our fencing contractors in Carlsbad, NM depend on the following factors:
- Scheduling: First and foremost, we need to be able to fit you into our schedule. There are some times of the year that are much busier than others—that’s just the nature of our industry. This means that in the busy season, it might take longer for you to get scheduled, which means you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for the fence to be installed. This is one of the biggest benefits of getting your fence up in the “off” seasons—it is much easier to get an appointment more quickly.
- Size: Obviously, the size of the fence is going to play a big role in how long it takes to install. Bigger fences, as you might expect, are going to take more time to install than smaller fences. This is one of the biggest factors we have to take into consideration when providing time estimates to our clients. These estimated times can vary significantly.
- Complexity: The more complex your fencing design is, the longer it’s going to take to build. Some people just go with extremely simple fences that are easy for us to erect quite quickly. But if you’re looking for something a little more artistic or that has more interesting or unique architectural elements to it, we can promise you that the extra time you wait for your fence to be complete is going to be worth it when you see the finished product. You want your contractors to take the time to get the job done well and correctly.
- Weather: There is one factor that we can never fully predict, and that’s what the weather is going to be like when we’re installing your fence. If we run into inclement weather, this could potentially add some delays to your fencing installation. There’s nothing that can be done when this happens—it just pushes everyone’s timetable back until the weather clears up.
- Terrain: The type of terrain you have on your property can also potentially complicate the installation process. Some yards, for example, are rockier than others. Creating a strong, safe fence requires you to dig rather deep for your fence posts, and if you have to dig through rough, rocky terrain, that’s going to take a little bit longer than it would to dig through rock-free, smooth terrain with light soil.
