So you decided you want to get a fence installed but not sure how long it takes to get one done. Well there is 2 parts to getting a fence installed – first of all you need to know when the team is available to start the work and then how long it takes to get the work done. This can change depending on the time of year and the weather. You could be waiting 6ish weeks on a team but when the team arrives it normally takes about 5 days to get everything done.
Why do we build fences? To hold something in or to keep something out? For aesthetic purposes or utilitarian? To block unsavory sights or to prevent neighbors from spying? Maybe – just maybe – we build fences for all of these reasons and more. The fact is, there are dozens of reasons for a fence to exist: safety, security, privacy, decoration. As you begin planning your new fence, consider the reasons for a fence and decide which features are most important to you. What do you hope to accomplish by building a fence?
One of the most popular reasons for a fence is to protect people and animals. If you have children, dogs, cats, or even horses, a fence can keep them wrangled up in your yard, so that they don’t run off, injure themselves, or get lost. You might also be concerned with elements outside of your yard, like lakes, ponds, cliffs, or hills. By installing a fence, you ensure that no one within your yard will accidentally fall into a body of water, fall off a cliff, or climb a dangerous bluff.
A fence will also prevent strangers from easily entering your property. Whether you’re imagining criminals trespassing on your land, teenagers unknowingly traipsing through your garden, or deer sauntering through and munching on your apple trees, a fence is a great way to ward off uninvited guests.
Going right along with security, a fence is also a great way to establish the boundaries of your property. Sometimes people trespass on land accidentally, not realizing that they’re upsetting the owner. Other homeowners might be frustrated that their neighbors aren’t respecting the line that separates their properties. In situations like this, a fence will create a clear, hard-and-fast boundary.
