How do you guys price building fences? Sq. Ft. Lineal ft.? Per panel? Material times x? What works best for you in terms of net dollars.


Just getting some idea's, just never had to determine what's the best or "normal" way of pricing it, any help would be appreciated.


I might end up subbing it out....not sure yet.



Thanks!

Usually in dollars. :jester:

Just like any other work. Materials plus a pessimistic guesstimate on time. And then of course, I run into solid rock. :furious:

It really is like most other work; the difference is that unless you've been doing it for quite a while, know the area and are sensitive to geological clues, it's really easy to wind up way off on how hard or easy the digging is going to be. A good machine can help a lot with that, but you're never going to know for sure until after the job's done.

I hate doing fences. I take the material cost and multiply by 6 to get a quote. I do very few fences, but the ones I do I make bank on.
