Just had an estimate of this amount for a basic fence 70' x 4 ft high and 86 x 6 ft. Seems outrageous but it is redwood and I do live in paradise.

6\' Shadowbox
Amount: $5,180.00
Posted by: Minib in Middleburg, FL.Posted: April 8th, 2010 07:04AM
Number of Feet: 498Material: 4\" Cypress
We got this estimate for just shy of 5000 lf with three 5' work gates. At the time of the estimate, the estimator hinted that the owner would probably work with us, either on the price itself or with a material upgrade since we were dealing with a large amount of fence. I'm waiting on a callback today to see what we can negotiate.

Number of Feet: 120Material: wood or plastic
I enjoy this site, but info seems a bit old. Is it active? Perhaps it just reflects the economy and building downturn. Here in Ocean County, NJ the fence builders I've called just don't show up for the job! Amazing, since they do show up for the estimates and spend there (and my) time. Anyone have a recommendation? THANKS

6' wood fence
Amount: $0.00

Number of Feet: 130Material: dog ear
I wonder where you are getting your info from. According to my calculation as an installer, price based on Lowe's or Home Depot, this is my conclusion; the cost will vary depending on what kind of fence you use, terrain condition and way of installation.
Posts 4X4X8, two foot in ground, one bag of concrete per post, 8' fence one sided dog ear, one gate including regular hardware and no sag hardware, pick up of material, no mark up on material but including some overhead, like office, pick up and rent auger, cost per foot on a 130 foot fence with one gate is $14.56 per foot. When using shadow box fencing the cost is $18.02 per foot.
When using LEGAL labor the installation cost is between $10.00 and $15.00 per foot. At this price nothing can go wrong on the job or we would not make a penny.
So when I see pricing from $15.00 to $22.00 per foot installed, all included it must be considering stolen wood and ILLEGAL labor.

Doing it yourself priceing
Amount: $1,000.00
Posted by: Tony C in Houston, TX.Posted: January 25th, 2010 08:01PM
Number of Feet: 120Material: Ceder
I built the fence on the side of our house.
2x4's and 4x4's I got from a LUMBER YARD here in Houston. (saved 100 from going to Home depot) The cement I bought at Home depot (cheap). The ceder posts I bought off craigslist (saved 250$ from home depot) anywhere from 40-60$ for Uhaul truck if you don't have a friend with a truck. 30 bucks to rent a nail gun and 15$ for the nailgun nails. 10$ in nails from home depot. You CAN do this with only a circular saw, measuring tape, hammer, and pencil but it's easier to have a miter saw (expensive and don't go out and get a 10 inch you would need a 12inch for the 4x4's and they are expensive {but not at pawn shops ;) } and a post hole digger (20$ home depot) (plus you need to do it on a day near around the time 'yard waste' is picked up from your house. The hardest part is leveling your fence and making it straight. String helps a lot but you must keep in mind ground slope when cutting your posts in this case. That's it. Takes about 2 days for the 4x4's and cement work and 1 day for the crossmembers and picket work.

Eads Fence Co (Cincinnati OH). Cost for almost 300 ft of fence, plus 12 ft wide double drive gate matching the fence, all installed. Posts went up in one day, stringers and boards the next. Very fast and efficient. Cost a little higher than other companies in area, but work is spectacular. No more prying eyes from the neighbors and no more wandering dogs on my property!
