How Long Does Poured in Place Surfacing Take to Install?

The installation procedure of poured in place surfacing depends on several factors. Knowing these factors can help you estimate the duration of the whole installation process.

Size of Your Space

The size of the surface is the ultimate determinant of duration of the installation. Usually, the larger the surface to be covered the longer it may take to install. Size will mean more ground to be covered. However, with a professional team on your side, large areas can be covered within a short period of time.


Poured in place surfacing has many design options- it’s part of the fun! The design of the surface will affect how long the installation process takes. If it is a simple shape such as a square, rectangle or circle, it will take a couple of days at most. However, if the shape is fancy, it will take longer. This is attributed to the fact that irregular shapes make it hard to install. In fact, the more edges a ground has, the longer it will take for the work to be completed.

Weather Conditions

The weather will obviously affect the installation process. During extreme weather such as rain or snow, the process might take weeks. These factors show that you cannot have a definite time frame on the duration of installing any surfacing that is poured in place. All the same, you should know the average duration is 24 to 48 hours. In some cases, the process may take a few days.
