How Much Does the Average Fence Installation Cost?

Monday, September 14, 2020

You've got the perfect home, complete with the (almost) perfect yard. There is just something missing you can't quite put your finger on.

The missing link may be a custom fence installation

There's a wide range of options when it comes to fences, but fear not, we're here to make the process as painless as possible. 

What Kind of Fence is Best?

This isn't your grandmother's fencing game. The market has grown significantly since the dream of a 'white picket fence,' though that's still an option. 

When shopping custom fence installation, remember that the materials will likely make up the bulk of your cost. Some materials carry a higher price tag.

In general, your fence will be constructed of PVC, aluminum, wood, or chain link. The first step in your fence journey will be figuring out what you want to accomplish. 

Looking for Privacy? If your neighborhood is on the cramped side, or you are next to a busy street PVC, vinyl and wood are great materials to consider. They will offer you the most coverage and privacy. 

Looking for Security? A fence can be a great way to place a barrier around your home to keep any would-be intruders out. Something more sturdy, like wrought iron or aluminum, may be your best bet. 

Looking for Containment? If your main objective is to keep pets and/or kids in the yard and other critters out, your fence will need to be tall enough so they can't climb over and gap-free so they can't wriggle out (or in).

PVC, aluminum, and vinyl are popular for containment style fencing, though the right style of wood could work as well. 

What's it Going to Cost Me?

Now that you've assessed your goals for your custom fence installation let's talk cost

The national average for fence installation is $13 to $25 per linear foot, which factors in materials cost and labor cost. Your average six-foot privacy fence will run about $2,711 with 70 percent of that cost in materials.

Other things that may factor into your total cost are the material you choose, the cost of labor, the size of the area to be fenced, any HOA or permitting fees, marking lines, and concrete delivery. 

Wood is often less expensive than vinyl or PVC, but it requires more maintenance and wears down faster. Vinyl and PVC are more of an investment upfront but will last you longer and require less maintenance over time.
