Material costs at your location : 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 surveyors 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. The second biggest factor on wood fence cost are the materials selected. Homeowners typically use pressure treated 4x4 posts or galvanized steel posts, pressure treated 2x4s for the fence rails, and pine or cedar wood for the pickets. Many options exist - usually at additional cost - to change the aesthetics of the fence appearance including upgrading the wood grade and application of stains or sealants to beautify and protect the wood for longer life.
Privacy Fences Privacy fences primarily function as physical barriers between your backyard and the outside world. Many locales have ordinances that limit the maximum height. Generally speaking, however, ideal residential privacy fencing is around six feet high. That is usually sufficient to obstruct both visual and physical access by outsiders. As for frontage style, a vast assortment of privacy fence designs and colors are available from which to choose and create a personalized look. You may even have a fence custom-built to suit any preference or peculiar taste. Another option is online shopping to find attractive and distinctive wood fence designs to recreate. Also note that even though most residential privacy fences are offered in wooden fence designs, other formats may be found as well. Popular alternatives are vinyl and metallic decorative strips that work well for garden fence designs.
