Building a fence seems like an easy project, but needs a lot of planning and budgeting. When financing your fence, the first thing you think about is how you can save some money. There are several ways to build a budget-friendly fence without compromising the quality of a good fence.
The first outlet for creating a budget-friendly fence is the type of fencing material you choose. Installation pricing, no matter what material you decide to use, is priced per lineal foot. Wood fencing ranges from $3-$9 per square foot while aluminum fencing averages about $40 per square foot. Homeowners should research the types of material considered for their fence, and perform a cost comparison to ensure it stays within their budget. Let contractors know about your budget as well, since they are the experts and can make some recommendations.
Labor costs are going to be the largest aspect of a fencing bill, and the average price ranging from $30 to $50 per hour. However, other factors can increase the cost of the overall project. For example, a yard with a lot of trees, hard-to-access areas, homeowner’s association permits, and more can contribute to labor costs for fencing projects. When selecting a fencing company to build your fence, the proposal should include conditions applicable to them before signing a contract and determine if it fits into their budget.
There are a couple of other scenarios that can affect the overall cost of your fence. The location of your home, fence upkeep, shape and sizing of your yard, and more can contribute to the cost of your fence. Most new fences can run between $1,500 to $4,000. A qualified fencing contractor should present an accurate deadline for the project with all the factors considered for the total cost. Three estimates should be gathered before deciding and signing a contract, ensuring you are receiving accurate estimates.
