Jesus. I did 60-70 feet when wood was just starting to get high for 450.00 or so. Is there a bunch of tear down? Metal posts? Most of my Cedar posts were still in good shape but I used 2x4s and 6 inch pickets. All drilled and screwed in, not nailed.

Two months ago I paid $9400.00 for 120 feet of 8 footer board on board with a cap and baseboard plus 8 foot tall gate/metal posts. Removal also of old fence with brick columns and new fence sealed. It looks like a Donald Trump border wall as it measures over 8ft just on fence not including cap.

Got three quotes and that was about the ballpark cost.

I was shocked but my fence was about to fall down after I rednecked it up multiple times.

F that. That seems high as shit. I thought lumber was coming down now.
I’m glad I live on lots of land with no need for a fence, although I do have an area with livestock fencing but the previous owner had horses.

I would give them the money they want if Mexico was paying for it.
I知 also interested in installing a 35ft sliding gat with no motor for an addition 3500! I知 wondering if it値l be cheaper next year or if I should just bite the bullet and get it done.

Who in the F needs a 35 foot gate? You bringing a tank in and out? Hell I bet that guy on here that bought the Tank doesn't even have a gate that big.
