Good evening,

Removal and disposal will usually cost around $5.00 a linear foot and depending on the style and height of the new fence I should be around $30-35. Gates should be around $200-300 depending on size and style.

Hope this helps. have a great night.

Good day,

For a 4"x4" post and 6' high privacy fence double sided you're looking at 90$ a post and 23$ a linear foot.

For a 6"x6" 100$ per post and 28$ a linear foot.

Tear down is 35$ per 8' panel and 10$ a post. I hope this helps?

Hi Tyrone.

The cost of building a 160 foot linear fence with 4x4 posts made out of pressure treated wood is $35 per linear foot. ($5,600) This would include labour, lumber, materials and digging/setting service of your new posts. Alternatively, a 6x6 fence would be charged at $50 per linear foot. ($8,000)

Gates would be at an extra surcharge due to hardware costs and if you opt for any decorative inserts. Approximately $200-$300 each gate.

Teardown and disposal fees are $3 per linear foot. ($540) This cost includes labour and dumping disposal fees.

Hope this helps Tyrone.

Kind regards,

Costs from the other pros are accurate in the GTA. One word of advice: go with 6x6 posts. It is worth it for the added structural integrity of the fence.
