Shadow Box Fence
I am trying to get an idea if a quote I got on a fence is reasonable for what I am wanting done. I live in Mobile AL so I know costs will vary. My quote was for:
259 feet of 8' shadow box fence with cap facial. line posts 4X4, terminals 4X4, rail 2 X4 and boards 1 X 6 treated pine. This fence also includes 2 4X6 gates and the posts are spaced 8 feet a part. The total comes to $5799 which works out to 21/ft plus the two gates. Does this sound high? One thing I asked him to rework is the posts. Currently they have me quoted to 10 ft posts sunk 2 ft. I would like at least 3 feet sunk so he is looking at 12 foot posts that they will cut down. I would love to hear some thoughts on this. Thanks!
