Your Split Rail Fence Installation questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a split rail fence installation cost near me?

Building a split rail fence costs $15 to $35 per linear foot with standard-grade cedar or pine. A split rail fence built with steel costs $25 to $45 per linear foot installed and is the most expensive. Most split rail fences have 3 rails and are 3' to 6' tall.

What is a split rail fence?

A split rail fence, also known as "post and rail" fencing, typically has 2 to 4 rows of horizontal, rough-cut wooden rails. Although wooden split rail fences are most common, this ranch-style design also comes in vinyl, composite, steel, and aluminum.

A split rail fence is the top choice for large farms or properties with large livestock.

How long does a split rail fence last?

The lifespan of a split rail fence depends on which material it's made of:

  • Wood lasts for 15 to 50 years depending on the type and if it's pressure-treated.
  • Vinyl lasts for 20 to 30 years on average.
  • Aluminum lasts for 30 to 50 years in most climates.

Make a wooden or aluminum split rail fence last longer by resealing it every 1 to 2 years to stop it from rotting, rusting, or cracking.

How high should a split rail fence be?

A split rail fence should be 3' to 4' tall for front yards and up to 8' tall in the backyard according to local building codes. For containing livestock on a ranch, a fence height of 4' to 5' tall is sufficient. Check local building codes for fence height regulations.

Consider 8' tall fencing if deer are jumping onto your property.

What's the best material for a split rail fence?

Most split rail fences are wooden since wood is budget-friendly and durable when sealed. However, a wooden fence needs resealing every 1 to 2 years. Vinyl is another good option that withstands the weather conditions with little maintenance. Metal rails last the longest but are the most expensive.

Do split rail fences need concrete?

Split rail fences do need concrete post anchors if the ground is frequently wet from heavy rainfall and if you live in a high-wind area. A concrete base is the strongest reinforcement for fence posts to stop them from falling over.

However, setting posts in into compacted holes with gravel is sufficient when building a fence on well-draining ground in moderate climates.

Do split rail fences require a lot of maintenance?

Split rail fences do require a lot of maintenance when made of wood that needs resealing every 1 to 2 years to prevent rotting. Vinyl and metal fences require much less maintenance overall. Install coated and high-quality materials to increase the longevity of a fence.

Hiring a split rail fence installer

Before hiring a split rail fence installer near you:

  • Read their online reviews on Google and HomeGuide.
  • Confirm they have licenses, insurance, and have been in business for 5+ years.
  • Avoid choosing the cheapest bid that typically results in low-quality work.
  • Ask for a list of references.
  • Compare 3 to 5 in-person estimates.
  • Ask for a written contract and workmanship warranty before the work starts.
  • Don't make your last payment until after the fence is complete.

What are the best questions to ask split rail fence installers?

  • How long have you been building split rail fences?
  • Could you share pictures of your past fencing projects?
  • How long will it take to install this fence?
  • What level of upkeep does this fence require?
  • Do you provide any guarantees or warranties for your services?
  • How many installers will work on this project?
  • Are there potential complications with my property's layout?
  • Can you pull the required permits and supervise inspections?
  • Does the estimate cover materials, labor, delivery, and cleanup costs?
  • Can you protect my existing landscaping during installation?
  • Will you contact utilities to mark underground services?
  • Can I get in touch with some of your past clients for references?
