Determining the quantity of materials needed for your fencing project is an important step to ensure a successful installation. While we’re happy to provide guidance based on your measurements and project specifications, we highly recommend scheduling a property assessment with our team to create a comprehensive quote tailored to your specific needs. 

Below is a list of things to consider before purchasing your list of fencing materials: 

  • Measure Your Property: Begin by measuring the perimeter or length of the area where you intend to install the fence. This will help determine the total linear footage of fencing materials needed. 
  • Consider Fence Type: The type of fence you choose will impact the quantity of materials required. For example, different types of fencing (e.g., wire mesh, wooden post and rail, electric) will have varying material requirements. 
  • Calculate Post Spacing: Determine the spacing between fence posts based on the type of fence and the terrain of your property. Typically, posts are spaced at intervals of 8 to 12 feet. However, this may vary depending on factors such as soil conditions and the intended use of the fence. 
  • Account for Gates: If your fencing project includes gates, remember to factor in the width of the gates. Also any additional materials needed for hinges, latches, and gateposts. 
  • Consider Additional Accessories: Depending on the type of fence, you may need additional accessories such as wire tensioners, insulators, or connectors. Be sure to include these items in your material calculations. 
  • Consult with Experts: If you’re unsure about the quantity of materials needed for your fencing project, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of experts. We can provide guidance based on your specific requirements and offer recommendations to ensure you have the right amount of materials for the job.
