If you’re considering having new fencing erected, there are a number of considerations that you should take into account, all of which will have an impact on the fence installation Seattle cost. Firstly, installing a fence is a specialist job, which is why there are many skilled contractors around. Trying to erect fencing, particularly for security should not be attempted by a novice.
The Type of Fencing
The type is a key influential factor in the cost of the installation. Whether you’re thinking of chain link, decorative, picket or indeed high security, depending on your needs, the type will of course affect the overall cost.
Think about the type of fencing you wish to install. Almost all will have additional, optional features which will directly impact on the cost. If it’s wooden, then a choice of wood might count as an additional feature. There might be various fence-tops, designs, trellis or shaped posts which will all affect the fence installation cost. You may even want it electrified if you’re containing livestock within the boundaries. The additional cost of the wiring and the electric unit must also be included.
Length of the Fencing
This is a fairly obvious influence on the total cost of fencing. Longer fences will indeed cost more to install, however you should notice a cheaper overall unit cost as the length of fence increases. If this isn’t the case you should consider walking away from a deal.
There might be additional features to the fence you require, such as gates or stiles which have to be factored in to the fence installation cost. A single gate can increase the budget significantly so is worth bearing in mind.
