That’s why, at Northland Fence of Ramsey, we offer free estimates and quotes to all of our customers. We are upfront about our pricing and estimated costs of installation from the beginning, all calculated by our expert financial team.

How Much Does a Chain Link Fence Cost?

The cost of a chain link fence varies depending on the project, your needs, and your wants. It is the most affordable type of fencing that we offer given its simplicity in both aesthetic and installation processes.

The average cost of a chain link fence for homeowners is between $4-10 per foot. The variation comes in when you change the height, length, and overall size of the fence.

That average is just for the fabric of the chain link fence. Other factors that contribute to the overall cost of a chain link fence include the cost of other materials like the posts and rails, add-ons such as gates or panels, and the installation time.

How to Calculate the Cost of a Chain Link Fence

To calculate the cost of a chain link fence, you need to consider all the aspects that go into the installation. This includes the materials, the installation time, and any add-ons you may want. The cost of a chain link fence is a complicated calculation when you consider all the variations within these categories. Check out the breakdown of the cost of a chain link fence below!

The Cost of Materials

The cost of materials is going to make up the bulk of the chain link fence price. Materials include the chain link fabric, posts, rails, end caps, post caps, and more. The good news is that within the materials category, your choices can help to make this more affordable.

With our 15+ years in the fencing industry, we know the best way to navigate the fencing industry and the purchasing of products and materials. We use this knowledge to get the best products for the best prices in bulk. This allows us to offer low prices to our customers on all our fencing materials without compromising our ability to work as a business!

Does the Height, Length, and Size Affect the Cost of a Chain Link Fence?

Yes. The height, length, and size of your fence will affect the cost of the chain link fence installation. This will be one of the most influential factors in the final price of your project. The obvious reason for this is that a bigger fence needs more materials and more materials will cost more.

With chain link fence being the most affordable fence type available, even though the size of the fence will affect the cost, most of the time it is still readily affordable. This is what makes chain link fences great for large projects of any kind.

Unlike vinyl or ornamental fencing, chain link fencing is mass-produced making it easy to supply the demand for less cost. This is why we highly recommend this fence type to many of our customers with large yards or commercial fencing needs.

The Cost of Doing It Yourself Vs. Hiring a Company

The last part of calculating the overall cost of a chain link fence is the installation price. While there are benefits to doing this process yourself, in the larger scheme of things, we find it better to simply hire a professional fence installation contractor like Northland Fence of Ramsey to do the work for you.

FAQs About Chain Link Fence Cost

Is chain link fence the cheapest type of fence to install?

No. Oftentimes wood fences can be found for cheaper because of the natural and widely-sourced material. However, Northland Fence of Ramsey does not offer wood fencing because it cannot stand up to the Minnesota climate and often causes our customers immense problems. Compared to the other fence types that we offer, chain link fencing is the cheapest kind in both material and installation charges.
