How Long It Takes To Install a Picture Hanging System?
When it comes to estimate how long it takes to professionally install a picture hanging system, there are a number of variables to consider, among which the following 3 key factors:
- material of walls and their conditions: drilling on gyprock (plasterboard) walls in a brand-new apartment is usually very easy. Brick walls and concrete walls can instead prove to be more challenging materials to work with and may delay the installation.
- Ceiling height: installing at 2.7m is usually easier and faster than at higher level, as no scaffolding is usually required, hence less delays in moving equipment around.
- Number and weight of pictures/objects you want to hang.
As a rule of thumb, if you have either a decent amount of experience and appropriate tools, you could easily expect to hang 3 meters of picture rails in less than an hour. To this, you should add the time to hang pictures/object and adjust for optimal display, which may take between 5-10 minutes.
