All of the prices for the various cost factors of installing a fence are subject to change based on location and materials. In an extremely general sense, the price range for a linear foot of a basic wood split rail fence ranges from \$7 to \$10 per foot, while more complex fence designs, such as a six-foot high wood privacy fence, ranges from \$20 and \$50 per foot, as of July 2015.

A six-foot vinyl fence designed to look like wood generally costs between \$40 and \$60 per foot; a slightly smaller four-foot iron and aluminum fence is around \$25 to \$30 per foot. The price per foot of the iron and aluminum fence increases by \$5 to \$10 per foot if the fence design calls for ornamental work.

Chain link fencing is the most economical option as it only costs between \$12 and \$15 per foot for a four-foot high fence, HouseLogic.com notes. Threaded slats that provide additional privacy add about \$6 to \$10 to the price per foot, as of July 2015.
