When looking for new fencing options for your front or backyard, the prices for them can increase quickly depending on the material and style of the fence. Certain materials can cost up to $50 a square foot which can break the bank quickly.
Here are 5 cheaper options for fencing.
- Treated Pine
Treated pine panels are perfect for keeping both neighbors, animals, and pests out of the yard. When the panels are treated properly, it can also resist rot and damage from rain or any other precipitation. The lumber for the fencing typically ranges from $12 to $19 per linear foot. It is best to also make sure, while picking the lumber you are using, that there is no green or damp wood visible. Wood, under those conditions, moves around in the ground and the fence will not be stable.
- Chain Link
Chain link fencing is made of twisted wires that are hooked together and held up with metal poles. Typically this fence is used when there is a very limited budget and a very large space to enclose. This type of fencing does mean less privacy than other fences, but it is very effective in the vital and main tasks of keeping things in and out respectively. This typically costs $10 to $20 per linear foot. Although it can not be pretty sometimes, it is easy to decorate with plants or paint.
- Wrought Iron
Wrought Iron is one of the more expensive items on this list. Although a tad more pricey, it fits quite well with the theming and decor of Glothic or Italianate homes. This is made to also be rot and warp resistant so it can sustain all kinds of weather. The typical price of these fences range from $24 to $32. The reason for such a large price range is the type of metal, black iron being the cheaper and the galvanized iron is a little more pricey.
- Barbed Wire
Barbed wire is more regularly used in large fields where livestock roams and there is a need to keep predators out. It usually has metal or wood posts to hold the wire up and show the property line to outsiders. Also to keep in note if deciding to use this fencing, barbed wire fences are only allowed to be used in rural areas. This typically costs $1.50 to $2 per linear foot.
- Hog Wire
Similar to barbed wire, hog wire fencing is used with livestock and to mark property boundaries. It is made by constructing a solid frame using wood and setting wire in a grid shape in the inside of this frame. This kind of fencing allows for you to be able to splurge a little on the wood being used so it can seem nicer than it may be. This typically costs from $3 to $5 per linear foot, depending on the type of wood being used.
