How to estimate the cost of a new fence
April 16, 2018

Before you install a new fence on your property, you will want to ensure that you choose a fencing option that is within your budget. The cost of a new fence depends on many factors - here is some advice to help you come up with a rough estimate for the cost of a new fence.




The area it needs to cover

The first thing to consider when estimating the cost of a fence is your property size and what you are hoping to achieve. 

Figure out the length of your new fence and how tall you would like it to be in order to determine the amount of materials you will require.


The materials

Fences can vary greatly in price depending on the materials used and the style. This is a rough pricing estimate of the different types of fencing based on the material used, including professional installation.

Chainlink: $15 to $20 per foot

Vinyl: $50 to $60 per foot for a privacy fence, or $18 to $22 per foot for a 3-rail fence

Wood: $25 to $30 per foot

Iron: $50 to $60 per foot

Concrete: $90 to $110 per foot

For more information about the value you get for the various types of fencing, check out our fencing cost comparison post.


Special requests

If you have an irregularly shaped property, or if there are any slopes or barriers in the way, you can expect your fence to cost more than average.

As well, any special designs or requests often add to the price. Make sure you take this into account when budgeting for your fence.
