Purchased the fence materials and did the install myself. This included a gate too. It was time consuming but I saved a ton of cash and the fence is perfectly straight and square. Plus the fence material isn't that cheap garbage Lowe's and HD sell, this was from fencecenter.com.

Number of Feet: 175Material: PT wood
I am wondering how "your calculations" are a fair way to judge your neighbor. $2000 for 175 feet of fence is only $11.50 per foot. Besides, who are you to say that no contractor is worth $50/hr? Does he come to your office and tell you that you do nothing but sit on your butt all day so you are not worth the amount that you get paid? No he does not so keep your rude presumptuous comments to yourself.

Number of Feet: 175Material: PT wood
I did my own design up in acad, estimated the material quantities, including conc & associated hardware and came up with $1250.00. My contractor neighbor wants about $50-$100 ($2000 for the job) per hour, based on my calculations, for his labour! Is he outta his tree??? My labour is FREE! Do-it-yourself people! Don't let a contractor take you to the bank for something any joe blow could do! Geeeeez, it's just a freakin fence, not the Eifel Tower!

chain link fence
Amount: $250.00
Posted by: roy hicks in mesa, AZ.Posted: April 9th, 2009 04:04PM
Number of Feet: 23Material: chain link
I needed 23 feet of chain link to finish an entrance gate to my property. I called for 2 quotes both came in at about 800 dollars. This motivated me to do it myself. I dug the holes and cemented the poles.A neighbor showed me how to install the fabric. Its done and looks good. I saved over 500 dollars. From now on I will do my own home repairs if possible. No more making contractors rich.

I just purchased an ornamental galvanized steel fence from Xtreme Fence Mfg. in Cumming, GA. They were able to beat all the other contractors bids with a far supirior product bar none. They also can deliver what they say. The whole process was turn key. We did alot of research and nothing else compared. Brian was our sales person and you could not have asked for a better experience.

With reference with Joe Adams in Katy, Tx; (Fence Replacent). And if you can give the contractors name to me, thanks..but I have a need for a replacement fence (thanks to Ike), treated pine, much like Mr. Adams, but treated pine..and only about 100lf. I had a estimate for $2376 from a local builder..no "take away", put the old on the drive..blah,blah..! Want 1/2 $ before the works starts, 1/2 after the project is done.

Nawwwwwww..no deal folks. I've been a heavy constuction estimator for 32 years. The best price that I could estimate would be $1800 and that's with extras..profit, etc..ect..
