What Does a New Fence Cost?

One of the biggest factors in fencing cost is material. Materials like barbed wire are the cheapest, but they are limited and aren't always the ideal choice for residential yards. Other metal fences, such as chain-link, are more affordable and offer additional functionality. Selecting materials such as wood add increasing cost to a fencing project.

Typically, having a fence built on a residential property or another like area could cost $500 to $7,000.

Many fencing professionals estimate prices based on linear feet. That's the measurement of how long the fence needs to be to cover the appropriate area. Typically, having a fence installed costs $1 to $45 per linear foot.

Costs for fencing projects don't just include the labor and materials to build the fence. Some other factors that can add to the cost include:

  • Obtaining any required permits
  • Having the area checked for utilities before digging
  • Prepping the area, such as removing debris or leveling the ground to better support the fence

The right fence installation company for your job can send someone out to talk about the details, including recommended materials and costs, with you. Begin by searching for a fence professional so you can enjoy your new fence in the near future.

Be Sure to Ask About Insurance Coverage

Ensure the expert you choose has the right insurance to cover your project. They should be insured in your state or area to cover fencing or general home contracting.

Frequently asked questions

  • Budget: Your budget is central in influencing which fence you buy. Figure out your spending limit and determine your budget per linear foot, as fencing costs can quickly add up.
  • Durability: Consider strength, lifespan, resistance to pests, rot and fungus, rust, and the material’s ability to withstand local weather conditions.
  • Maintenance: Maintenance, cleaning and repairs should be simple and minimal.
  • Purpose: The style of fence you choose should be suitable for its intended purpose. 
  • Installation: Find out what installation requirements, such as foundations or supports, are necessary. Research if DIY is possible or if professional installation is your only option.

  • Wood fence styles range from traditional to contemporary and from purely functional to attractive and decorative.
  • Lattice fences are affordable and decorative. You can use them as privacy fences by growing dense foliage over them.
  • Vertical board fences are the most common type of residential fence. There are budget-friendly options available as well as higher-end panels. Vertical board fences are affordable choices for basic privacy and security fences.
  • Picket fences conjure up cozy images of traditional properties with carefully tended lawns. They’re good for demarcating a property boundary but don’t provide much security.
  • Post-and-rail fences are a solid choice for making a boundary over a large area, as material use is minimal. However, they don’t provide any security or privacy.
  • Metal fences are generally stronger and more secure than other materials. You can choose from highly ornate and secure metalwork or simple but functional wire. For the higher-end options, which are often costly, homeowners often reduce costs per square foot by combining the metal with brick.
  • Aluminum fencing is an attractive, more affordable alternative to wrought iron. Although it has a similar appearance, it’s not as strong as wrought iron.
  • Steel fencing is a strong, long-lasting fencing option that’s good for creating a secure barrier around your home.
  • Vinyl fencing made from PVC comes in a range of styles, including those that mimic real wood.
  • Composite fencing is an amalgamation of wood fibers, pulp or sawdust and ground plastic particles that are bonded and held together by an acrylic resin. It looks and feels like real wood and is an environmentally friendly choice, as it usually contains a high percentage of recycled materials.
  • Wire fences are not made to enhance the aesthetics of your property, although some homeowners opt for black fencing to help boost aesthetics. They are inexpensive, purely functional products suitable for DIY or professional installation.
  • Barbed wire fencing isn’t common in residential settings. While it’s an inexpensive, fierce and intimidating security deterrent, it isn’t attractive and will not add value to your home.
