Obviously, the size of the area to be fenced is the single biggest factor that determines the cost to install a fence (all other factors being equal). Most wood fences are installed in 8 foot sections so measure the perimeter of the property using a reel tape measure or surveyor's wheel and divide by 8. Pace off the distance to get a rough estimate or for existing fences count the existing fence posts and measure the length of 1 panel. The height of the fence will also have a major impact on the cost - most suburban privacy fences are six foot tall picket fences in one of the many styles. Eight foot and ten foot heights are also options for additional security, to obscure eyesores or for sound control purposes.
Before you start building your fence you need to lay out the area properly to get a good idea for where the fence is going to sit in proportion to the house and surrounding area.It can be helpful to run string lines at the elevation that the fence will be at in terms of its finished height. You can run these string lines both at the top and at the bottom of the finished height of the fence.
Select the type of fence you want. If you want a privacy fence, it is usually made of solid panel and the top is at eye level or higher. You can also choose decorative fences with pickets to keep children and pets safely in the yard.
Aluminum fences are powder-coated for longevity and use brackets as post-to-rail connectors. This avoids the fragile, rust-prone welds so common with conventional wrought iron fences. Styles and designs for aluminum fencing include a growing range of colors, including black, white, bronze, and even green.
Most fences these days are now made from non-toxic chemicals. So you don't have to worry about your fence installation not being approved. Make sure that you insist on non-toxic fences at all times.
