We do a lot of business with sterling fence I'll see if we can get any cheaper.

$20 a foot includes install right?

Installing it is super easy shit

yup included install. I have never installed it but I can't see it being that hard

The hardest part is getting all your posts plumb and in line. A hole digger rental from shitty depot, some concrete, and a String line.

The rest is assembly and tie wiring.

lolol anyone that says its easy is fulla shit......................
Its just like any other job its got to be done right or its a waste of time.

That price is about $3 bucks a foot less than I charge.

If you grounds flat its not to bad , if the digging is easy put the posts to depth but if its hard just put them in best you can and cut them off.

I know a guy that used to do Chain link

Longhorn is right, not super easy to install, it does take some skills.
That is a good overall price for 5 foot high fence....

It's hard work but not brain surgery. Totally doable your self with a couple guys and the right tools.

Cut the labor costs out and it will be far more affordable.
I watched sterling do a 6 foot high by about 100ft in about 4.5 hrs.

They did a shitty job though. Didn't dig the posts holes deep enough. Prolly why longhorn is 3$ more a foot. get a proper job done

That seems like a pretty fair price..
