A general rule of thumb to estimate the cost of many home improvement projects is to calculate the materials cost and double it to determine the total project cost when using a contractor. For most fence projects this method will overestimate the project cost by 10-20% so it can be used as a conservative approximation. Installing a wood privacy fence is a significant project due to the amount of work, but not too difficult for the typical homeowner and the cost savings can be substantial. The American Fence Association estimates the average cost of privacy fence installation at approximately $17 to $24 per linear foot for a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor (2013 figures). This estimate doesn't include sales tax or permit/inspection fees that may apply in your locality.
Cost The size, style, and material will all influence the cost. A larger fenced in yard will require more materials than a small fenced in area. A chain link fence or wrought iron fence will incur a different cost than a wooden fence. A short wooden fence will cost less than a tall wooden privacy.
The depth of the post hole is very significant as this will determine the overall strength and longevity of the fence. In the areas where the ground can freeze during the winter season. It will be extremely important to set the posts a minimum of 6 inches below the frost line. For all other applications. The post hole should be one third the height of the fence. For example a 6 foot fence should have a minimum of 2 foot deep post holes. If you were looking for an area that you can overbuild on this project. This is it. If you drill the holes and deeper than need be or use extra concrete. This amounts to extra cost and extra labor for your project but ultimately will result in a stronger, longer lasting fence.
