How Much Does It Cost to Install a New Wood Fence?

If you pay even the slightest attention to the daily news cycle, your attention will be absorbed by what feels like a never-ending onslaught of bad news.

When it comes to installing a new wood fence, however, it’s a different story.

We have good news, some better news, and the best news.

Let’s start with the first batch of good news.

Good News

The good news about installing a new wood fence is that it’s one of the more affordable fencing options available. While estimates are always just ballpark figures, the price for this style of fencing is much lower than some other varieties. 

All things considered, a wood fence can cost anywhere between $500-$6,000, with the national average landing at just $800. 

The lower price points are partially due to the fact that the materials are more affordable.

Take, for example, our range of wood fences:

  • Wood picket fences
  • Show box and privacy wooden fences
  • Do it yourself wooden fence options
  • Various shades and variations in colors and textures

Each option will affect the overall bottom line, but they all still rank as some of our most practical and affordable products.

Some Better News 

According to environmental experts, wooden fencing is good for the earth. 

That means choosing a wooden fence is more than just an economic choice that affects you personally: it’s also a sustainable one that can have a long term impact on the environment. 

In 2015, the United States joined with nearly two hundred other countries to agree to a set of Sustainable Development Goals. Their broad mission includes ending poverty, promoting health and well-being, and building more sustainable cities and communities.

Sustainable consumption and production is about doing more and better with less. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles.

Sustainable consumption and production can also contribute substantially to poverty alleviation and the transition towards low-carbon and green economies. (Sustainable Development Goals)

Though choosing wooden fencing doesn’t seem as if it could have a global impact (especially with the lofty goals outlined above), changes require both large and small shifts. 

This is one way you can make a difference, even just by installing a new wood fence.

The Best News

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked many changes, one of which is a significant rise in people attempting at-home DIY improvements. 

According to the Press Herald, do-it-yourself projects are on the rise across the nation. As evidence, the paper notes that home improvement store Lowe’s is up 20% in sales over last year, despite having had a strong 2019.

Patios, decks, fire pits and raised beds for gardening have been sprouting around homes this spring like never before, fueled by homeowners with time on their hands and fewer options to distract them.

Of course, DIY isn’t for everyone, and the best news of all is that it doesn’t have to be. 

When it comes to installing a new wood fence, there’s no reason you have to be in it alone.
