Cost factors of security fencing

Like any other construction material, the site itself plays an important role bearing on the final price. Consider the below-mentioned factors that can affect the prices of fences.

Site access

The ability to supply materials, equipment and other important elements directly to the site when the fence is installed makes it highly effective for the contractor. But if he fails to deliver materials to the destination, everything will be carried by hand, and this will increase the costs and labor as well as time.

Site preparation

Building fence on theflat site is easy, but the place may be surroundedbybrush, trees, old irrigation systems and other materials. Therefore, the site needs preparation before setting up afence. In the rural areas where fence needs to be cut out of the brush, it requires more time and labor. Moreover, carrying out everything from the fence line may add some unforeseen costs.

Rocky ground

Fences require excavation of deep holes. When you are installing fences on the rocky ground, the digging task may turn problematic, and this may lead to arise in the labor cost. Local contractors are aware of the problems of the soil and try to accommodate the cost of their bids. However, contractors out of the town may not be so familiar with the conditions, and this may result in unexpected cost increase.


The presence of old trees on the site project may impose a serious challenge for the fence contractors because they need to be removed for constructing afence on aflat surface. Underground roots may interfere with excavation as they are close to the surface and large in size. This ultimately increases the cost of labor.
