Before you begin your fencing project, you should always get a quote first. It pays to know just how much you’re in for before the project starts. Ask for a quote for your project, and make sure it includes all of these key parts.
Cost of Basic Materials
Your quote should, at the very minimum, include the full cost of all materials that will be needed for the project. This includes not only the panels, but also posts, post caps, nails and screws, and anything else that is necessary for installing the fence. Be careful and make sure that your quote includes all basic materials and not just the cost of the panels. Those essential extras can add up fast, especially if your project is a big one. In order to get an accurate assessment of the cost, you should bring in the exact measurements of the area your fence will cover when you come for your quote.
Cost of Extras
Your quote should also factor in any extras that will be included in your project. Are you putting in a gate? Will you be staining or painting the fence after it’s up? Will your installer need to buy any special tools for this project? It’s easy to overlook these additional costs in the initial quote, so make sure that your supplier is aware of the extent of your project so they can give you the most accurate price possible.
Cost of Labor
Don’t forget to budget for your crew’s hard work. Some fence installers will charge a flat rate for a single project, no matter how long it takes them to complete it. Others will have a daily or hourly fee, and this fee can vary if things don’t go as expected. Regardless, you should ask about how your installer prefers to be paid ahead of time so there aren’t any surprises on this front.
