Your Barbed Wire Fence Installation questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does barbed wire fence installation cost near me?

Installing a barbed wire fence costs $3 to $6 per linear foot on average for typical livestock property borders of 4' to 5' tall. Most barbed wire fences have 4 to 6 strands of wire, and wooden posts are cheaper than metal posts.

Ask the fence installer if discount pricing is available for installing miles of fencing with a crew and larger equipment.

What is barbed wire?

Barbed wire is metal strands with sharp points and edge at regular intervals. This type of fencing is made from galvanized steel, zinc-coated aluminum alloys, and stainless steel. Razor wire has the biggest points. For extra rust resistance, use coated barbed wire.

Can you put barbed wire on any fence?

You can put barbed wire on any fence if the local building codes and homeowners association permit it. Adding fence extender arms with spirals of razor wire on top of fencing is a good way to increase property security.

Not all cities allow homeowners to install barbed wire fences since they can hinder the efforts of firefighters and medical teams in an emergency.

How long does a barbed wire fence last?

A barbed wire fence lasts 20 to 50 years. Coated barbed wire lasts longer, especially when professionally installed with high-quality fence parts in a moderate or dry climate. The most durable fence posts to use with barbed wire are metal or concrete models.

Although wooden posts are often the cheapest option, wooden posts can also rot before the barbed wire rusts or breaks.

How tall are barbed wire fences?

Barbed wire fences are 3' to 8' tall, depending on the application. High-security fences and properties where deer are common use 6' to 8' tall fences. Check local regulations to see which types of barbed wire and at what heights are allowed in your area.

How do you calculate barbed wire for a fence?

In order to calculate how much barbed wire to buy for a fence, multiply the total length of the fence perimeter by the number of strands you want between the posts. Barbed wire typically comes on rolls of 1,320 feet, roughly equivalent to a ¼ of a mile.

You'll need up to twice as much razor wire when adding spirals on top of a fence for extra security.

Where do I buy barbed wire?

You can buy barbed wire from:

  • Home improvement centers
  • Hardware stores
  • Agricultural suppliers
  • Ranch equipment outlets
  • Online retailers

Jose did an amazing job installing our frameless glass shower door. I had another contractor tell me it would be too difficult and I should return it, but Jose managed it in an afternoon and it looks perfect! He is very professional and punctual too.
