What Will a Precast Concrete Fence Cost?
There are a lot of options and decisions involved when deciding what type of fencing solution is best suited for your project. Things like security, city codes and requirements, and privacy considerations all have to be decided on but the biggest decision is determining whether a precast concrete fence will fit in your budget. The most frequent question we receive is “What will a precast concrete fence cost?”
To answer this question frankly, it is impossible to set an exact and universal price for a precast concrete fence. There are many factors that go into pricing each project. Our team will work closely with you to gather the information that will determine the price of a precast concrete fence for your project. The first decision to make is how tall your fence will be and determine the total linear feet for your fence. This will be determined by the layout you need and what purpose your precast concrete fence will serve. Another factor will be the job location. The job location is used to help calculate shipping costs and installation costs. Special considerations also need to be considered and we often prefer to send one of our dedicated team members to join you in a site walk to help identify any onsite difficulties that may not be able to be determined on paper. Things we look for while onsite will include the location of utilities, ease of access for installation, soil conditions, and accessibility for delivery and concrete. These factors can sometimes prove to be challenging but we can reduce the financial impact if we are aware of these challenges upfront. Our team is also dedicated to determining if there are city licensing requirements or permitting that must be addressed prior to installation.
One of the greatest advantages of Hilltop Concrete’s precast concrete fence systems is that it is cost-efficient by nature. Because all of our precast concrete fence components
are precast, we are able to provide a turnkey product without having to wait for concrete to cure onsite. By using offsite precast production, products are manufactured in a controlled environment that requires less onsite labor and lessens the impact on a jobsite. We understand that one of the most costly issues on a jobsite is the delay in material and how one delay can impact the entire job schedule. Therefore, our team carefully coordinates the manufacturing and delivery of the product to ensure that your jobsite is never slowed down due to delay in material arrival. Through our manufacturing and delivery methods, we are able to minimize the overall cost associated with the product and delivery and we are able to pass those savings on to you from the beginning.
The installation also plays a large factor in the overall cost of a precast concrete fence. While saving money upfront by deciding to install the system yourself may seem like an attractive option, it could actually end up costing you more in the long run. While we are more than happy to provide your installers with a DIY installation guide, we all know that jobsite conditions can change and sometimes obstacles arise that have to be overcome on the fly. In these cases, an inexperienced installer may not make necessary onsite adjustments that experience could overcome and provide a successful solution. This can cause issues down the line that may require repairs in an untimely manner. Our installers have many years of experience installing
