    I have a mowing/snowplowing customer who wants me to install 54' of the 6' high vinyl fencing, 48' straight, 6' at a 90degree. I will have my cousin who is a carpenter help me with the install. I would like to know how long will it take 2 guys to install this? I told them they were looking at about $500 - $600 for the install alone. The material cost is about $900. Am I in the ballpark? Any comments from guys that have installed this would be appreciated.

    I have a friend who install's it all the time at $45.00 per FOOT. I installed a small one a few weeks ago, it is not hard and we ran about 43.00 per foot. Do not be afraind to mark it up good, its not hard but it is still a pain in the *****.

    Harleyman, I am guessing that is the cost of material and labor? I will only make about $30/ft on this one, but I will up it for the future.

    Yes Material and Labor. Due a good job with it and you may find more work for the stuff. I am not a fencing fan natural is much better but it does have its place.
