Fencing Price Comparisons

Having a fence installed at your home or place of business is an investment – that’s why you want to make sure it’s done right using high-quality materials. Here at Northeastern Fences in Selkirk, NY, we provide quality materials and professional installation services at a fair price – guaranteed.

Unfortunately, fence prices vary based on several factors, including:

  • Fence Type – There are a variety of materials to choose from, and even within the material types there are different grades of quality. In order to make a true price comparison, you’ll need to be sure that you are comparing the same level of quality. Considering the same level of quality, here are some average prices for the most popular fencing types:
    • Wooden Fences – Wooden fencing can cost anywhere from $9-$15 per foot, depending on type and height.
    • Vinyl, PVC, Plastic Fences – Vinyl, PVC, Plastic fencing runs an average of $20 per foot.
    • Ornamental & Aluminum Fences – Ornamental & Aluminum fencing is typically pricier, averaging around $20-$30 per foot.
    • Chain Link Fences – Chain link fencing is typically the least expensive, and averages around $6-$8 per foot.
  • Property Size – It may seem rather obvious, but the size of the area you’ll be fencing in will greatly affect the price of the job.
  • Accessibility – Another factor in pricing will be accessibility. If the area being fenced in is not easily accessible by vehicle, materials will have to be carried, which will lead to an increase in time and labor costs.
  • Angles/Slopes/Prep – If your fencing professional has to customize the fencing to work with slopes, angles, trees and other challenges, you can expect to pay a little more. This is simply because it requires extra time and extra labor.
  • Ground Conditions – A ground that is difficult to break and even harder to dig deep in will raise fence installation prices, simply because it will require much more work and energy.

When shopping around for a fence, be sure to take all of these factors into consideration, as they will often affect price. Want to at least be in the ballpark?
