Got an estimate for 470 feet of 2 rail plasic
fence that I thought was beyond ridiculous,they wanted $6900 installed,$4600 for labor. That
was figured at $10.00 per hour.

I used to sell PVC Fence. I have 1,850 ft of it on my place and would install it and supply the materials for 5.90 to 7.00 a foot depending on how long a fence it is. After the holes are dug on perfect 8ft centers 3 ft deep it goes in real fast. I can put about 100 ft in a hour. This fence is 6 years old and I haven't had to do anything to it and it is out in the sun all the time in eastern washington. It gets between 15 below to 105 above around here too. It has been thru 6 winters and I have some I brough with me that is over 12 + years old still looks like the rest and I have no maintance to take care of it. I did want a white fence and did not want to keep painting it. If it had been wood it would be splitting allready and dryed out due to our sunny dry days. I even made a 16 ft wide gate hung on hinges on one side no cable supporting it and it still swings nice 6 years later and you can stand on it. I had a cow try to jump the fence and got hung up and it held one end up in the air for a while and did not break. I would recomend it highly if you only want to put one fence in in your life and not have to do anything else to it. This fence is what they call 3-Rail Ranch and made by Heritage Fence. It sells for around 480.00 a hundred feet complete. Just as cheap as a good wood fence but looks better with time and will out last it many times over with doing nothing to it. PS I do not sell it anymore. Mark H.

Plastic fence is a new one on me: I'd wanna be darn sure about how that stuff takes a couple years of sunlite before i bought a lot. Although my new boat seats are pressed from rewarmed, recycled milk jugs so that should be a good test.

But some people just like to throw money away i guess, gotta love them - you should see the dump when the tourists leave - BRAND NEW appliances, tools and stuff! They call it trash, we haul it home by truckloads and rummage sale it back to them in the Spring. I haven't paid for a tire (well yeah, except for the wheelbarrow) since i bid-in that $25 auction-sale tire-changer :)

If it's the "vinal" fence i've seen around here, once instelled it guarenteed for life... and year after year it keeps looking like new. I've not heard of any of it failing, and like some one else said, the townies use a lot of it.

It's really popular stuff here with the city-folks who move to the country. A friend of ours has it. It's pretty, in the right places, and it will hold livestock in very nicely. It's way too expensive for my taste, plus I don't really care for plastic. I won't even have a fake Christmas tree in my house.

This the stuff you asking about?

Around here it would be figured at $30 or more an hour. You're lucky!
