2019 How Much Does A Fence Cost in DFW?
There are many articles out there that are way out of touch with reality when you are dealing with the price of a new fence from fence companies in the Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex. I will break it down to more realistic numbers for you based on the experience I have estimating against other companies.
Some companies are higher or lower in price depending upon the size of their company, their suppliers, if the owner installs or if the company subs the work out to crews, materials and labor costs.
Assuming metal posts and a minimum of 100 linear feet. Price goes up per foot the less footage you have. Jobs minimums are between $400-$1000. Price includes materials, labor, tear out and haul off of existing fence.
