    Thanks for looking

    Installed fence before but never at a payable job. So what I need is pricing help.

    Here's what I got.

    Material cost = $668.24 What do you think I should charge?

    25per ft is high around here. You might get that for a a high end cedar fence, like a board on board.

    Double your materials cost and your doing okay in the wood fence business. It looks like you're talking spruce or pine, with wood posts, 3 horz rails? thats $14.00-15.00 per foot plus 150.00 per 3ft gate. At least in the DFW area.
