Put this script just after body opening tag <body>

<div id="loader"></div>


    position: fixed;
    z-index: 9999999;
    left: 0px;
    top: 0px;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    background: url('loader.gif') 50% 50% no-repeat #f9f9f9;


<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
$(window).load(function () {

In this process we create two divs first one for loader and another for placing content and then jquery window.load is used to fadeout the loading image on complete page load. CSS is used to display loading image in center and to hide background at same time. You can increase fade-out time as per your requirement.
