Privacy Fencing for Your Property - If you are looking to create a sense of seclusion, you are looking for privacy fencing for the perimeter of your yard or entire property. Privacy fences can also be customized to match the design of your home, but this is more fencing than simply surrounding a small area within your yard, so make sure you are you pleased with your selection. Quality Temporary Fencing - Even though this is less of an investment than a permanent fence, look for quality materials and installation.
Estimating the Cost of Wood Privacy Fence Installation : Fence costs are calculated as a cost per linear foot. The easiest way to estimate the cost is to determine the cost of a single fence panel and then multiply that cost times the number of panels required to achieve the total length of the fence. First, measure the perimeter of the area to be enclosed - while doing this make note of any special situations that will influence to cost such as gate(s) or difficult terrain. If a fence already exists that will be replaced with new materials then simply count the number of fence panels that are present. Wood privacy fences are almost always spaced with posts 8 foot apart on center (this means the measurement from the center of one post to the center of an adjacent post is 8 feet) but always measure to confirm. Lumber is available in standard 8 foot lengths and offers a balanced solution of cost and strength. Spans longer than 8 feet will likely have problems with sagging unless the 2x4 cross beams are upgraded to 2x6 dimension - this also changes the appearance of the fence panel. Spans shorter than 8 feet are usually not necessary, the fence will be stronger but materials cost increase substantially. If there is a need to set the posts at some other length, be sure to choose an increment of 2 feet (i.e. 6 foot, 8 foot, 10 foot, 12 foot etc... ) otherwise installation will require every cross beam to be cut to length.
