Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How accurate is the fencing calculator?

A: Our fencing calculator provides accurate estimates based on the input values such as fence length, panel type, base size, base type, and post type. However, please note that the actual requirements may vary slightly due to factors like uneven terrain, unique fence designs, and local regulations.

Q: What types of fences can I calculate with this tool?

A: This fencing calculator is designed for estimating the number of panels, bases, and posts needed for wooden fences with different panel types (Waney Edge Board, Close Board, and Pailing), base types (Plain Concrete, Timber, and Rock Faced Concrete), and post types (Concrete and Timber).

Q: Can I use this calculator for other types of fences, such as chain link or vinyl?

A: This calculator is specifically designed for wooden fences. While you may be able to get a rough estimation for other types of fences, the accuracy may not be as high as for wooden fences.

Q: How do I account for gates or corners in the fence design?

A: This calculator does not directly account for gates or corners. However, you can adjust the fence length input to accommodate these features. For example, if you plan to install a gate, reduce the total fence length by the width of the gate and then use the calculator to estimate the remaining materials needed.

Q: Can this calculator help me estimate the cost of my fencing project?

A: While our fencing calculator does not provide cost estimations, it can help you determine the number of panels, bases, and posts needed for your fence. You can use this information to estimate the cost of materials and labor for your project by contacting local suppliers and contractors for their pricing.

Q: Do I need to account for post spacing when using this calculator?

A: Our calculator automatically factors in post spacing based on the panel length (6 feet) and the thickness of the chosen post type (concrete or timber). Therefore, you don’t need to worry about calculating post spacing separately.
