Cost to Install a New Fence
You can’t ignore the question that remains top of mind for St. Louis homeowners looking to install a new fencing system: “how much will this cost me?”
You also can’t apply a one-size-fits-all framework to every yard’s new project. Different property lines, and their owners, have different needs. Some clients need a 6ft privacy fence made from composite materials, while others request a wooden picket fence. Each fence type comes with its own costs and considerations.
With that in mind, what type of fence you want, and how much area it covers, are huge factors when determining how much your new fence will cost.
The best way to get a feel for the average cost of a comparable fence is to speak with an Outdoor Living Inc. specialist. Our team will assess your unique situation and provide a customized fencing estimate, all free of charge.
If you’re curious how that process works on our end, here are a few things fencing installation experts consider when generating a cost estimate:
Types of Fencing Materials That Affect the Pricing of Fence Installations
The type of fencing materials you decide to use will determine a good chunk of your final price. Depending on the color and size you’re looking for, fencing boards come in a range of costs, based on linear feet:
- Wood Fences (Treated): $9 to $15 per linear foot
- Wood Fences (Cedar): $15 to $30 per linear foot
- Vinyl Fences: $17 to $35 per linear foot
- Aluminum Fences: $18 to $45 per linear foot
On top of the board expenses, each fencing system will require additional costs for fasteners, sealants, fence posts, and other construction supplies.
Our experts get a feel for your yard’s needs before carefully estimating what the final materials cost will be.
Average Labor Cost for Fence Building Companies
Unless you’re taking a DIY approach to your new fencing system, you’ll need a helping hand. For help installing your fencing project, some installation costs come into play.
At Outdoor Living Inc., we can supply both the materials and labor necessary for your fencing system.
In addition to considering the materials necessary for your project, our fence installation experts will set up everything to your complete satisfaction.
Labor usually costs about $60 per hour, depending on the materials you’re using and the landscape of your yard. Again, our pricing professionals can help estimate how much labor is necessary for your project.
Financing a New Fence
The cost associated with a new home improvement project can add up quickly. While we don’t offer any financing options at Outdoor Living we do have a structure when signing a contract with us on fences.
Once a contract is signed we require a ⅓ down payment to get on our schedule. Once the project is complete and the customer is happy the final ⅔ payment is due. We do accept the following as payments cash, check, and credit cards.
