Are you considering a new fence or deck project and are wondering how long these types of projects typically take? A few factors determine how long it takes to plan, design, and execute your vision.


When planning an outdoor fence or deck project, it’s essential to determine if your local county or city requires a permit for the specific type of work you plan to have done. While some local agencies can issue permits as quickly as a day or two, others may take several months. When it comes to permitting for your project, Thoughtful and diligent planning can ensure that your project goes smoothly and does not face delays.

Crew Scheduling

Crew scheduling can be another factor in the overall time that it takes to complete your project. It is typical for our crews to be scheduled out 4-6 months during the summer. However, during the winter months, we can usually complete projects much quicker.
