Fences and gates help enclose, protect, and enhance your property. A fence can help make your property a safer place for children and pets, delineate property lines, provide some privacy, and make it more secure. Fences come in a wide range of different materials and styles as well. They can be wooden, metal, chainlink, or vinyl and be decorative or utilitarian in style. Gates are generally designed to match the material and basic style of the fence but may be taller, heavier, or more ornate as the situation demands.

Labor for installing any type of fencing is generally done by the hour, with most installers charging between $40 and $60 an hour for fencing installation.
