Cost of a Wood Fence Calculator
Wooden fencing is a popular choice for fencing, and many homeowners want to know how much it costs. Wood fencing is in the center of the price range when compared to other fence materials. It's not the cheapest (chain link is), but it's also not the most expensive (composite is). One prevalent misperception is that vinyl is less expensive than wood. That is incorrect. Wood fencing is significantly less expensive than vinyl fencing. The least expensive wood option is pressure treated pine fencing, while cedar fencing is the most prevalent. Wood is a durable fence construction material that also helps you stay inside your pricing range.
Wood fences do require maintenance, but with proper care, they will last for at least 15-20 years. Fence repairs for wood fences, such as post replacements, are typical in the Chicagoland area. The moisture at the base of the fence posts frequently evaporates and must be replaced within 10-15 years. With regular upkeep and staining, your wood fence might last up to 20-25 years.
