I called a guy today to put in a chain link fence behind my house. Our dogs ran off last week so we need a fence. Anyway, 300 ft of 4 ft chain link would cost me nearly $3000 to be installed. Is this serious? We had about the same done 5 years ago with a walk thru gate and a tractor gate and it was less then $800. Have the prices really gone up this much? Or did I get lucky with an awesome price that long ago? I have two other guys coming tomorrow and on Wednesday to give me additional estimates. But I am NOT paying this much for fencing. We may just rent an auger and put up panels of privacy fencing on our own.
