What affects the price of my fence?
The length of your fence
Fence length is calculated by the distance the fence runs along the ground. Use a measuring tape or yardstick to measure along the base of the fence.
Don’t have a measuring tool handy? Most fence sections are 8 feet in length. Count your existing fence posts and subtract one, then multiply by 8 to get an approximate length.
Another easy way to estimate the length of your fence project is to use the Measure Distance tool on Google Maps. For instructions, see Measure distance between points (Google Maps Help).
The fence style
We offer over a dozen different styles of fences in multiple materials, heights and designs. The cost of each fence style varies depending on the amount of materials and labor required to install that fence. We are also able to build custom fence styles, which require custom pricing.
The complexity of the fence line
Most backyard fence projects have two sides and a back, along with returns (small sections that connect the fence to the home or nearby outbuildings). Fences that have additional angles or jogs around obstacles can result in increased costs.
Terrain and slope
Sloped fences require additional planning, labor and material. While our calculator assumes a reasonably flat installation, there are occasionally situations that require customization for changes in terrain. When you plan a project with Cascade Fence & Deck, your project planner will review your options for dealing with slope and make sure your fence is installed just the way you like it.
Demolition & debris removal
If you’re replacing an existing fence, there will be a large amount of material left over from the old fence. If you’re planning a project with Cascade Fence & Deck, your project planner will ask you what you’d like to do with the demolished fence. To make it easy, we offer a demolition and removal service so that you don’t have to think about how to load and haul away the old broken sections.
