Cost of Wood Fence Installation

It costs on average $16.19 per linear foot to install a four foot high wood fence (Range: $14.62 - $17.76). A six foot high wood fence costs on average $23.50 per linear foot (Range: $15.00 - $32.00). Take a look at our Wood Fence Installation Costs & Prices – ProMatcher Cost Report which will provide you some estimated prices in your local area.

Here are some items that will factor into the cost of hiring a contractor to install wood fencing:

1. The height of the fence and the size of the area you need fenced. Wood fence installation costs are based on linear feet, so the taller the fence and the larger the area the higher the cost.

2. The shape of the area you need fenced. If your lot is long and wide and is angled rather than curved, the cost of installation may be lower if the contractor uses preassembled panels. If the area is short or contains curves the contractor may need to build the fence onsite which may increase your fence installation costs.

3. Fence style. Standard wood fences come in several styles. The least expensive is the spaced picket and the most expensive is the shadowbox. The cost of wood fence installation will vary depending on which style you choose.

4. Fence materials. Fence materials range in price from low to high: untreated wood, pressure treated pine, pressure treated spruce and cedar. Building a fence using a less expensive material will lower the cost of the project.

5. The depth of the post holes. The wider and taller the fence post the deeper the post hole. Soft surfaces also require deeper post holes. Additional time and equipment for digging post holes may increase the cost of your wood fence installation.

6. Do you have difficult terrain? If your lot is rocky or hilly, the contractor is forced to build the fence with components rather than using preassembled panels. This usually results in a higher installation cost.

7. Do you need a gate? Adding a gate to your project will increase the overall cost. If the contractor is able to use a prefabricated gate, the cost of a gate will be less expensive than having one custom made. The cost of a walkway gate is less than the cost of a driveway gate.
