Labor charge for barbed wire fence.

What is the going labor charge rate for building a 4-5 strand barbed wire fence? Anyone have any idea?? Would you charge by the foot, or the hour??

I'm pretty sure it's twice what the material cost is.

$7 a foot!?! Wow - We just put up several miles of fence with our neighbor - we cleared the fenceline, and provided materials - Our neighbor allowed use of his tractor setting the posts andf unrolling the wire. Cost was $0.80 per ft.

$7 a foot maybe for a small residential job, but if your talking field fencing that seems not just high, but outrageous. We got quotes for $3/ft just providing materials and them using their own equipment and clearing the old fence. Could be volume though, our total job was nearly 9 miles.

UGH. 9 mile of fence. Brings back memories I'd just as soon not have. But that was back before 4 wheelers.

Might consider doing it again for $7 a foot.

$3.50 a foot turn key for 5-6 strand smooth or barbed wired on cedar posts is more the going rate. I have even gotten prices as low as $3.00 turn key if the volume is up there. $7.00 a foot labor only is extreme.

Good to see others were more in line with what we paid. At $7/ft I could do that for a living. We paid for perimeter fencing to get back up and split that with neighbors. We cross fenced our own property ourselves. We still have several miles to do, but were doing it as the grass comes back. Ike took out all of our fences and all our grass.

But at $7/ft - me and one other person can easily clear & set about 3,000 feet in a day...that would be $21,000/day - I could relax for a while with a daily paycheck like that...even after my expenses....we set 10" wood corners, 8" wood spacers at 50' and 3 t posts each at 12'6"

I'll do it for $7 a foot if someone is willing to pay that.
