I have a very small section of my property that needs to be fenced with chain link fencing. The section to be fenced is a 30 foot straight line on a slight incline. One end will attach to a fence that is already in place and I need a gate at one end. I'd like the chain link to be coated in brown or green material.

Anyone have any idea how much it would cost to have this done professionally?

The tough part is the small quantity. If you were talking about 300 feet of fence, you could get it done for around $8/foot, but at only 30' long, most fence companies are going to charge a premium. If I had to guess, I'd say you're probably looking at around $500 minimum.

What would you guess is the DIY price?

How about the borrow a truck, buy the materials, and pick up two laborers in front of Home Depot price?

You can probably buy the material for under $100. I don't advocate the HD labor route, as it goes against my principles by supporting illegals, so I can't comment on the price of that.

Thanks for the info. It doesn't seem like a particularly challenging job, so I might try to do it myself.

Ask for papers.

Well, I wasn't seriously considering hiring laborers. I could just as easily call my brother and we could do the work for free. I'd just have to give him some beer. That's preferable to being UP-charged by a contractor (who probably employs illegals) just because it's a job that they can knock out in two hours rather than two weeks.
