WHAT MAKES UP THE COST OF A VINYL FENCE?
A VINYL FENCE COST GUIDE
The 2017 national average for vinyl fence is $17 a foot. However, this doesn’t mean you will be paying $17 a foot. A variety of factors can alter the cost of your fence significantly. Linear Foot, Color, Style, Gates, all play a role in determining the cost of your fence.
Linear foot refers to how long the fence lines will be, measured in feet. Some companies will charge by the foot while others will charge by component. Regardless of the method used, the larger the job the higher the cost due to the need of more material. If you take the national average of $17 a foot and multiply that by an average job size of 200 ft you will be looking at a bill that is almost $4,000 after tax just for material, and that’s not including any gates.
Color of a fence can alter its cost due to the dyes needed to obtain the different colors. The most common colors are White, Tan, and Adobe. White is typically cheaper while tan and adobe tend to be more expensive.
Style can greatly alter the cost based on the amount of material needed. A 2 or 3 rail ranch style of fence will typically be cheaper than a 6’ privacy style due to the lesser amount of material needed for the ranch style. Other styles can be labor intensive to create and may cost more because of such.
Gates can vary greatly in price due to the different methods of building them. Some have little to no steel frame while others have been built with strong rugged steel frames meant to withstand years of abuse and wind. In this category, cheaper is not always better as it usually signifies a gate that lacks strength and will not last.
