We're going to build a fence at some point and we're trying to figure out where the absolute cheapest place to buy materials would be. I would be most interested in buying wood panels to make the job a bit easier. Does anyone know of anywhere around the area that sells super cheap fence panels and the approximate cost? I haven't had any luck on craigslist. Or, if there are any fence contractors, are there any that offer very low rates? We don't need anything special, just something that's not as much of an eyesore as the current wire fencing with metal posts in our yard now!

I don't know the absolute cheapest place to buy materials to build a fence but when I have a do-it-myself project I go to Lowe's or HomeDepot. I know Lowe's sells 4ft x 8ft wood panel fencing for as low as $27. Then you need post and nails/screws, and a gate or two. But the above home improvement centers offer all kinds of fence options for almost any budget.

You may be able to find a used cheap fence on craigslist but most people that put a fence in usually like to keep them around until they either move or it falls over.

Some other points when installing a fence, make sure you know exactly where your property line is in relationship to your neighbors or common space and keep the fence at least a foot or 2 inside the line on your property so you can get around it for maintenance and inspections. Also make sure you know the neighborhood covenants regarding the fence you may install. It gets real expensive to take it down once its up and when you place it on Craigslist for resale people usually want the absolutely cheapest fence they can get!

Good luck with your fence project and keep us updated on how you make out!
