Estimating the Cost of Wooden Fence Installation

Installing a wooden fence for your compound is actually a great idea and it is not that complicated and neither is it an easy job.

If this is your first time putting up a fence on your own keep in mind that a fence is a long lasting feature for your home so you better get it done right.

Set the posts to about six to eight feet measured to the post’s center and then determine the size and location of the gate and other obstacles you will come by. For first timers at this work I would advise you start from the back since it is easier to hide the imperfections from that side, it is not a must you start and get everything right away you will learn along the way from your mistakes. Before pouring the concrete ensure the post is square on all the here axis and solidly braced, place the post in the whole carefully so as not to destroy the sides and then attach two braces on both sides of the post and a plumb-bob at the top of the post.

To prevent moisture and decay position your rails leave a two-inch gap at the bottom and for animal and children crossing over or passing through your fence bury a small section of wire fencing along the fence line and fixed to the gap. On finishing attaching the rails you can hang the gate.

After the paint has dried you can now attach the handles and latches. But the question is what is the cost of doing all this and what are these factors affecting this cost?

The biggest factor that determines the cost is the area to be fenced.To get a rough price of the posts measure the perimeter of the property using a tape measure and divide by eight. The materials you select the type of posts to use, whether the posts are made of steel or wood e.t.c will determine the cost. Additional groundwork as stated will cost you cash and therefore should be considered as a cost.

This will save on the groundwork cost and time. A general rule to estimating the cost of installation of many home fence installation projects is to calculate the materials cost and double it to determine the project cost when you hire a contractor.

The easiest way of estimating the cost is to determine the cost of a single fence panel and multiply it with the required number of panels that can complete the job. This panels that are pressure treated are mostly made from pine and often sag after installation.

Doing the job on your own for a common typical home can take up to three days and save you lots of money which you can treat yourself for a job well done, you can even get a few friends to help you out and the work will be kind of fun and enjoyable since you are not doing it all by yourself.
