DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you happen to know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, simply add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine, there is no need to be too precise, this is just a rough estimate at this point.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures (like a building or a storage shed that will serve as part of the barrier). This will give you a rough estimate as to how much fencing you will need.
  • An additional step to get greater accuracy for the amount of wood fencing you will need, is to also subtract the length of any gates you will be using. The gates are often priced much differently than the fencing is. For this reason we usually recommend to property owners who are looking to develop their own fence estimate, to list the gates separately. A standard wood walk gate is approx 4 feet wide and a standard wood drive gate can easily be 10 feet wide or more.


Wood fencing is priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically on price estimates ... the total number of wood fence sections is a factor in this pricing. So, "price per linear foot" is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished wood fence!

This is a very interesting difference that we would love to explore and explain to you if you'd like to speak with one of our fence experts further. Be aware, "price per linear foot" is a ploy that many unprofessional fence installers in the Columbus Ohio area use!

Fence placement is ultimately the responsibility of you, the customer. Moving a fence after it's already been installed can be costly, so it's never a bad idea to get a survey to be safe. In many cases, the property lines are clear and well-marked and installing your fence can be done without an official survey. However, some municipalities do require it, so be sure to check!

There are many small fence companies in Columbus Ohio that install wood fencing. Very few of them specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for designing, building, and installing wood fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your wood fence is almost certainly not installed as securely as it could be - which, ultimately, can reduce the quality and lifespan of your fence.

Be sure to choose a reliable fence company that has been around. Here are some of the most common pitfalls of using an unreliable, unlicensed, or uninsured wood fencing contractor:

  1. The Wood Fence Warranty is Void
    If the company that installed your wood fence isn't still in business down the road, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, even if you do choose the few wood fence products and options that do come with material warranties - some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was damaged during installation or installed improperly - which is fairly common.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fencing contractor, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. We are dedicated to improving our knowledge and skills of the best fencing materials and the best fence installation techniques for wood fencing in order to maximize the strength and life of your fence. Companies that simply install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they actually don't know about wood fencing … and what is best for you and your property.

  3. Putting Your Property at Risk
    Installing wood fences in the Columbus Ohio area is actually somewhat risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the installation of a fence can blow materials - damaging your business or customer's cars. We've seen concrete splatter up onto cars or drip down long stretches of walkways and driveways - as wet concrete or other materials are transported. The secondary damage to businesses or your customers' vehicles while installing fences by poorly trained labor is a very common thing.

    Additionally, anyone hurt on your property while they are working puts you at risk! If you hire an unqualified fencing contractor - you may be liable.

At first glance, hiring a "cheaper" fence company to install your wood fence may appear to save you a few dollars, but in the long run it is almost certainly a price that you simply cannot afford to pay!
