How to Install a Modular Fence in 14 Minutes

Hello everyone, I’m Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce specialized in fences. Today I will talk to you about how to lay a modular panel fence in 14 minutes. In reality, this statement is intentionally provocative because it is impossible to complete such an installation in such a short time.

The Reality of the Time Needed to Lay a Fence

I saw a video on the internet titled "How to Lay a Fence in 15 Minutes". While the video is well-made and the steps are explained correctly, it is misleading to think that it is possible to complete the installation in such a short time. In fact, in 15 minutes, you can barely unload the materials from the vehicle and prepare the necessary tools, like drill and wrenches. You cannot lay a fence in such a short time, especially if it is a DIY job.

Factors That Influence the Laying Time

The time required to lay a fence depends on many factors, such as:

  • The amount of fence to be installed
  • The height of the fence
  • The difficulty of access to the installation area
  • The presence of obstacles such as mud or bends
  • The need to dismantle an existing fence

These factors can significantly influence the timeline of the job. For example, if the installation area is on a wall with steps or bends, the work will be more complicated and will require more time.

An Example of Installation

Today, for example, we are laying a fence on a wall with panels. Even though the area is relatively comfortable, we need to dismantle the old fence and deal with some obstacles. In a day's work, we will be able to lay about 45-50 meters of fence, which equates to about 25 panels and 25 posts, considering two-meter modules each.

In optimal situations, some companies manage to lay up to 50-80 panels per day, but this depends on many variables, including working hours. If you start working at 5 am and finish at 8 pm, it is possible to lay even 100 panels, but this requires a significant commitment.

The Estimated Laying Time

To give a more concrete idea, we can say that an average of 25-30 panels per day is a reasonable goal for most situations. This includes the time needed to dismantle any existing fences and deal with any obstacles.

The Laying Doesn't Have a Fixed Price

It is important to highlight that laying a fence does not have a fixed price. Each project must be evaluated individually, taking into account all specific variables. It is necessary to conduct inspections and produce customized quotes based on the actual situation of the installation site.


In conclusion, laying a modular panel fence requires time and attention to detail. Do not trust those who promise installations in unrealistic times.
