Factors affecting electric fence prices and cost

Fence height

The height of the fence affects the prices. Generally higher fences become more in price compared to shorter fences. This is basically due to the quantity of materials in terms of wire and fence bracket size.

Size of the fence

The linear size of the electric fence will determine how much money you will spend on the fence. However longer fences are charged less in price compared to shorter fences.

Material types

Preferred type of materials can affect the fence cost. In some instances there is need to make special type of brackets to get the best security or suit the architecture. Whilst in some cases certain materials are chosen because of durability.

Site complications

In some instances the installation needs special skills therefore the price may go up. When the terrain is not level one may need to step the fence and this adds to the number of brackets required.
