How much does it cost to have chain link fence installed?
Chain Link Fence and Other Types Fencing
Thank you for writing HooverFence.com. Fence installation and labor costs
for installing fence can vary significantly due to the following variables for a fencing
- Fence Layout: The fence can be one
straight line, or consist of numerous corners, gates, and other interuptions in the fence
line. These items increase the cost of materials and also the labor to install.
- Fence Terrain: The fence may need
installed in average soil conditions, or it may need installed in extremely rocky soil,
through asphalt and/or concrete surfaces, or through wet areas. Each of these variables
can increase the cost to install the fence, either in materials, or labor, or use of
additional tools not normally needed.
- Fence Details: The height of the fence,
quantity of gates, difficulty of installation can all affect the price a contractor
charges for installation.
For these reasons and others, we have found it difficult to estimate
fence installation labor prices across the country. Costs of living and average rates also
differ significantly across the country. Many other trades such as carpentry, roofing, and
the electrical or plumbing trades could arguably have more defined fixed costs. Often,
their work is confined to a fixed building with all work exposed for estimating. They can
usually pull their work vehicles right up to a building and perform their tasks fairly
Fencers, on the other hand, often have to guess at what's below the
ground surface and numerous other variables to define the time involved with installing a
fence. Inclimate weather, buried utility lines, and buried hard surfaces can sometimes
make a job which looked profitable, barely doable.
We recommend working only with qualified and experienced
contractors. Check references and reports with the Better Business Bureau. Also, be sure
they are insured properly for liability and worker's compensation. Experienced contractors
can usually provide a fair, reasonable, and accurate estimate upon review of the fence
project location. Be aware that cheap fences and cheap fence installations can cost you
more in the long run with repairs and replacement costs. A fence should be something to be
installed with longevity in mind. They are not always easy to install and they are even
more difficult to tear down and reinstall, if the wrong materials and techniques are used
to install it.
