Estimating the Cost of Wood Privacy Fence Installation...

Kennel area costs are calculated as a cost per linear 12 inches. The easiest way to estimate the cost is to determine the cost of a single barrier panel and then multiply that cost times the number of systems required to achieve the total length of the fence. First, measure often the perimeter of the area to be enclosed – while carrying out this make note of any special situations that will influence towards cost such as gate(s) or difficult terrain. If a fences already exists that will be replaced with new materials then simply calculate the number of fence panels that are present. Wood privacy fences are almost always spaced with posts 8 foot apart with center (this means the measurement from the center towards the end post to the center of an adjacent post is main feet) but always measure to confirm. Lumber is available in conventional 8 foot lengths and offers a balanced solution of expense and strength. Spans longer than 8 feet will have problems with sagging unless the 2×4 cross beams are actually upgraded to 2×6 dimension – this also changes the appearance of the fence panel. Spans shorter than 8 your feet are usually not necessary, the fence will be stronger but substances cost increase substantially. If there is a need to set the subject material at some other length, be sure to choose an increment of 2 feet (i. e. 6 foot,...
