How Much Does a Privacy Fence Cost? A Buyer’s Guide

by | Fences

As experienced fence contractors, we’re often asked, “How much does a privacy fence cost?”

There’s a wide price range depending on materials, yard size, fence height, and maintenance costs. On average, the final price falls between $2,000 and $3,000.

Privacy fencing secures your home, reduces noise, and adds value to your property. It’s worth every penny for homeowners.

Let’s look at three different price options.

We’ve broken down materials into affordable, mid-range, and premium tiers. But remember, the best option for you will depend on your yard type, goals, and

Affordable Options

Estimated Cost: $10 – $25 per linear foot


Pressure-treated or cedar are the two most popular choices for affordable privacy fences with a clean and elegant aesthetic.

With that affordability comes a few downsides: Wood fences need regular maintenance. They also have a short lifespan. Expect to replace your fence after around every 15 years.

Mid-Range Options

Estimated Cost: $20 – $40 per linear foot


Vinyl fences are known for their durability and flexibility: this material is over 5 times stronger than wood and may be the right option if you live in an area with extreme weather. Vinyl also comes in a variety of styles, including solid panels for maximum privacy.


Aluminum fences are lightweight and don’t require much maintenance. They won’t rust, and an occasional rinse is enough to keep them clean. On the other hand, aluminum is lightweight and doesn’t provide much security, so if that’s a top concern, you might want to look elsewhere.

Premium Options

Estimated Cost: $25 – $50+ per linear foot

Stone or Brick

Stone or brick walls provide ultimate privacy and security while adding a timeless look to your property. These materials are durable, so you don’t have to plan on replacing them.

Composite Fencing

Composite fences, which use a mixture of recycled plastic and wood fiber, have become increasingly popular in the last few years. Composite wood offers you the look of a wood fence while being much lower maintenance: you won’t need to do anything other than an occasional hose-down. And they last for up to 50 years.

Consider height, length, and maintenance costs.

All three can have a major impact on the cost of your yard.

Also, remember that a fence’s cost doesn’t end when it’s installed. Some materials, like wood, require more upkeep than others. If low maintenance is a priority for you, look to aluminum or composite.

A good privacy fence is worth the cost.
