What's involved in a fence construction project?
A fence adds protection and privacy to your property. Choose the materials based on the fence function. Homeowners can choose between chain-link, ranch, panel, or picket fences. Fence posts are usually set in the ground below the frost line and secured with concrete.
How much does the project cost?
Measure the perimeter of your property—or the area that you wish to fence off. Multiply that number by the price of materials plus cost of fence installation:
- Chain link: $13 - $17 per linear foot.
- Wood panel fence: roughly between $20 - $39 per linear foot.
- Vinyl: $24 - $50 per linear foot.
- Aluminum: $36 - $40 per linear foot.
Things that may increase your project include:
- Security gates
- Ground condition, density, and grading
It's a good idea to set aside an additional 10 – 20% of the project cost aside in case the price works out to be more than initially expected.
Is this a DIY project?
It's a good idea to leave this project up to the professionals who know about drainage, freezing conditions, and ground movement. They can make sure that your fence stays put for a long time.
Check in with you city permit office before installing a fence. They will tell you if you are able to dig on your property (and where you can dig) according to property lines, cables, pipes, and other utilities.
If you wish to replace an existing fence between yours and your neighbour's property, then it's likely that both parties have to pay to replace the fence.
