You would be looking at $25 per linear foot. That includes post holes dug, concrete, post setting and complete construction of fence. (with screws for future maintenance). Supply and Installed price.

We also obtain the dig permits for all of our customers, free of charge and line and post marking and locations is also free of charge.

The wood that is quotes is Top Choice Pressure treated lumber.

Manny and Ken are probably right on the low end. On average it's probably more like $45-60 for pressure treated, depending on many variables such as:

access to drill holes (hand digging costs more)

removal and disposal

post size and spacing

rail and cap configurations

spacing of boards

number of gates

Your starting cost would be 35/ lineal foot for a 6 foot high pressure treated fence, basic good neighbor style.

6 feet panels are ideal for fence and few extra additional panels are also better to buy. Normal lumber can also be used it has to be painted before or immediately after installing the fence. For other factors lick costing and all, fence contractor can give you the whole idea.

Quick question. 30 feet long 6 foot high privacy fence with 4 feet gate material list:

62pcs 1x6x6 = 168.64+tax

20pcs 2x4x8 = 104.00+tax

7pcs 2x6x8 = 58.10+tax

5pcs 6*6*10 = 180.00+tax

5 holes avg = 125.00+tax

Box of 2 1/2 screws = 39.99+tax

Box of 1 1/2 screws = 27.99+tax

Gate kit = 40.00+tax

Cement bags = 217.00+tax

Post Caps = 12.95=tax

This is 1332.95+tax = 1532.56$

How the hell can you price a fence for 25$/lin feet with holes and cement when it would be less than half of the material cost? Seriously you guys call yourself contractors? You are the ones who makes us , real contractors look like idiots charging so much, yet your jobs will crumble into pieces.

Maybe its just the Quebec lumber and cement that cost more and you material cost is 550$ and you work for 200$ with you truck, machinery, drills, saws and blades.

Yeah, you guys at 25 per foot are off your rockers.

Basic 6 foot privacy fence, 35 dollars per linear foot is a good price. The lowest I've gone is 31 per linear foot.
