Compare Fences Types, Costs & Prices For Supply & Installation

Welcome to our Fence Price Comparison website, the one and only place you need to visit to get all of the information you need when choosing a new or replacement fence for your home or business. Our Fence Price Guides website is updated on a regular basis with the last 2013 prices for the most popular types of residential and commercial fencing. Our prices are collated by our expert staff from around the industry, through consumer submissions, our readers and from contractors around the country who provide their own fencing service.

The type of fence you ultimately choose for your home or business will be affected by the cost you’re likely to incur as a result of having to complete such a project. This cost can be affected by many factors including the type of fence, material, size of project / complexity of the project, contractor you hire and location within the country. For that reason we’ve put together the Fence Price Guide to help give you the information you need to make the best decision when it comes to your next fence project.

Fences Prices & Costs Per Linear Foot

One of the most common ways in which people inquire about the likely cost for a fence replacement or installation is by asking what the cost per linear foot is going to be, by having that cost per linear foot you are able to multiply that by the number of meters of fencing you need. That’s why we’ve put together a set of prices for each main/popular type of fence costed out at the average price per foot supplied direct and the average cost supplied & installed. Please note that whilst we do the best we can to provide the most accurate pricing data, the following are only estimates. We recommend you use our free pricing tool for more accurate fence prices from local, pre-screened contractors.

For the purposes of this fence price comparison we’ve allowed for an average labor cost for the “Prices Per Foot Installed” which usually accounts for between 10% and 25% of the total cost. All of the following prices for the “costs per linear foot” include typical costs such as post anchoring, posts, materials and all construction supplies required for a 1.2 meter tall fence at the length specified. Our prices do not include higher grade materials or the removal and disposal of existing fencing and ground materials. Yo may also find that more complex fencing layouts often incur a higher cost due to the extra time and materials needed to complete the job.

The price ranges below allow for a “basic” job (low end pricing) and “best” job (high end pricing). Basic allows for lower quality materials and simpler layouts, whereas the Best pricing allows for higher quality materials and a more complex layout/installation.

Fences Prices & Costs For A Completed Project

Fences can also be quoted on a per project basis, this is usually useful if you don’t want to source and install the fencing yourself, this makes the process a lot quicker and easier for you – saving you time but costing a little extra – usually around 20% extra plus your own time.

Fence quotes per project will provide you with a cost of all the fence needed to cover the given area, either supply only or supplied and installed for you by a contractor. Depending on the size of the project and the type of fence you need installed, fence costs will often range from $97 to $23,000 supplied and $121 – $3,000 installed, with an average cost of around $25 per linear foot (see pricing table above). In general you can expect to add between 10% and 25% to the total project cost for labor, or if you choose to do a DIY project then that’s what you can expect to save.

For the purposes of this fence price comparison we have allowed for the labor costs as specified above along with the inclusion of typical costs such as posts, post anchoring, construction supplies and materials required to install the fencing. In general, the prices shown below will be for a specific project that uses medium grade material and does not require the removal & disposal of the original fence & ground material.
