# Chain Link Fence Calculator

Chain link fence is one of the most economical ways to build a perimeter around your home or commercial property. However, determining the cost of your fence in detail can be difficult without the help of a fencing calculator. A fencing calculator determines the total price of your fence based on the material, size, and shape you have chosen. There are many different types of such fences, including vinyl and aluminum. Here is a brief description of each type and the fencing calculators which use them:

Chain Link Fence Calculator This fence cost calculator takes measurements of the available width and height of the top rail, which is generally steel or wrought iron. After the measurements have been taken, the material type and quantity of each ingredient required, their proportions in relation to each other and the total area of the fence area are calculated. The calculation results are in the form of an array of values, which can range from zero to infinity. The value closest to zero is the minimum acceptable amount of height, which is generally the case when choosing a low chain link fence. In case the highest possible height is not possible, the builder may consider increasing the spacing between the top and bottom rail. Generally, the fence cost calculator suggests that the optimum height should be no more than 25% of the total height of the structure.

## Vinyl Fence Calculator

The vinyl fence types are pretty much self-explanatory. The main thing to remember is that there are two types of vinyl – straight and curved. The calculator uses the width of the top rail, which is in turn equal to the width of the vinyl tracks. Calculating the amount of vinyl needed for each track and end sections, the calculate the dimensions and determine the quantity by adding the required track sections to the height of the top rail. This gives the exact specifications required for building the fence.

## Chain-Mesh Fence Calculator

The chain-link fence calculator is similar to the vinyl calculator, the only difference is that the output is in a data format that can be read by software. It helps one get price estimates for constructing the fence, depending on the materials used and the amount of work involved. The software allows one to select different configurations, such as galvanized steel or painted posts and get price estimates for those as well. The fence prices depend on factors such as the number of posts, type, and number of posts, the height of the top rail, width, and spacing between the top and bottom rails.

## Fence Cost And Measurement

The cost of building a chain link fence depends on many factors, but most importantly on the material chosen for construction. The two main types of material are aluminum and vinyl. With the former, one has to calculate how many feet the fence has to cover, and the top and bottom rail dimensions. The calculation of this data is in inches. The calculation of the cost for building a vinyl fence is quite the same as that of the aluminum fence, the only difference being the height of the top rail. The vinyl fence dimension is info and the price for vinyl fence is in dollars.

## Wood And Chain Link Fence Calculator

Calculators The wood fence and chain-link fences are heavier and bulkier than the vinyl ones, hence they are more expensive and take longer to construct. However, one can always use the wood and chain link fences as a back up if the prices of installing them come too high. One can also use the wood and vinyl combination if they want a less expensive fence. The wood costs $90 a foot or about six to eight feet in height, and the vinyl cost per foot is about five dollars.

## New Chain Link Fence Calculator

If one wants to know the cost of constructing a new chain link fence, then here it is. The cost of this fence depends on various factors like the number of panels, the number of gates and their type. This depends mainly on how high the gate will be and the type and height of the top rail. The calculation of this information is in dollars. The height of the top rail should be about four feet if it is made from solid lumber. The price of the fence usually varies depending on how many panels are made and the number of gates.

## Chain-Wire Fence Calculator

The last kind of chain-link fence calculator is the one which uses the new bolt cutters. The calculation here is based on the number of gates, the weight of the gate, and the type of panel. The new bolt cutters are purchased at a hardware store. One needs to calculate the weight of each panel and the depth of the panel to determine the price. The bolts are bought in two-inch diameter increments and this calculator can be used to determine the price for this material.
