A component fence is usually wood and is built onsite one piece, or component, at a time which can take a little longer to build but is sometimes preferred since it can more easily follow the natural lay of the land. Panel fences are made of pre-constructed panels. Most metal and vinyl fences are only available as panels and cannot be built onsite. Wood fences sometimes come this way too. Panels can make it easier to build your fence but they do not follow the contours of the land so they have to follow the grade, or curves, in a stair-step manner.

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.

A wood post will use more concrete than a steel post does. The hole for a fence post should be three times the diameter of the post itself. This means that a wood 4 x 4 post requires a hole that is 12 inches in diameter while a steel post needs only a 6 inch diameter hole. And, the hole needs to go below the frost-line which can be up to four feet deep. A wood post should also have gravel below the concrete to allow for water drainage. When the cost of the post, the concrete and the gravel is added together the total price of a wood post may be more than that of a steel post. And then of course there is the additional labor of digging a bigger hole and disposing of all that dirt.
