How Much Does Trex Fencing Cost and Is It the Right for Your Home?

Most people think of a fence as a way to keep the kids in the yard, or uninvited visitors out. Realtors and homebuyers may look at fences differently. 

You see, landscaping-including fences, can add value to your home. If you decide to sell, a well-landscaped home could put 5.5 to 12.7 percent more money in your bank account.

If you’re considering fencing for your property, Trex is a popular choice for several reasons, including durability. But how much does Trex fencing cost?

Read on and learn more about Trex fencing and whether or not it’s the best choice for your home. 

Benefits of Trex Fencing

While some Northeast Oklahoma homeowners may prefer traditional fence materials, Trex composite fencing is an increasingly popular option. If you’re looking for performance and durability, it’s an excellent choice.

Trex makes the most durable non-wood fencing materials on the market today. That’s an essential feature here in Oklahoma. Since 1950, Oklahoma has experienced over 4,600 tornadoes – 48 in 2023 (so far). 

A unique blend of recycled wood and plastics results in a fencing material highly resistant to wear, tear, moisture, rot, and insects. As a result, Trex fencing has a longer lifespan compared to other types of fences.

Trex also satisfies homeowners seeking an environmentally-friendly alternative to wood, stone, or metal fencing.

While its durability and eco-friendly composition make it attractive to homeowners, the beauty of Trex fencing is also a draw.

Trex offers a variety of design options and color choices. Homeowners can select from different styles and finishes to match their home’s architecture and personal preferences.

Another key selling point is maintenance. Trex fencing requires minimal upkeep when compared to natural wood or other fence materials. It doesn’t need painting, staining, or sealing to maintain its appearance and structural integrity. 

Factors that Impact Trex Fencing Cost

Trex fencing cost can vary based on several factors. Knowing what impacts cost can help homeowners better plan for their fencing project. Cost factors include:

  • Materials
  • Fence height and length
  • Accessories and hardware
  • Permit costs
  • Contractor choice
  • Site Accessibility
  • Terrain and Landscaping
  • Removal of existing fencing
  • Customization
  • Labor

Another thing to consider when researching cost is seasonal factors. Installation during peak season may mean higher labor costs. Scheduling your project during off-peak times could result in potential savings.

A Few More Details About Fencing Costs

Calculating the cost of Trex fencing requires taking into account various cost components. To start, most fence installation companies base their rates on the local market. They also look at what their competitors charge.

If you’re shopping for a fence installation company, and you get as far as receiving quotes, you may notice there’s not a huge variance in pricing. You may also find that one contractor quotes a markedly higher price than the others.

Before discarding the high-end quote, take a minute and see if the quote includes any extra services. Earlier in the article, we mentioned site accessibility, landscaping, and terrain. Anything unusual in these three areas can increase costs.

For example, consider the slope of your land. If you want to build a fence on uneven terrain, that means more work for the fence installer. They may need to regrade your land, which impacts costs.

What about a quote that seems too low to be true?

Before signing a contract with any installer, make sure you research as best you can the installer’s qualifications and certifications, insurance and compliance, their past work, and of course, any testimonials from previous customers.

The lowest price doesn’t always deliver the best results.

How Much Does a Trex Fence Cost?

Keep in mind that prices can fluctuate based on the availability of contractors, local economic conditions, and demand for fencing materials.

In regions with higher living costs or in areas where Trex fencing is in high demand, you might find yourself paying at the upper end of the price range. In regions with lower costs of living or less competition, you may secure a more favorable rate.

For a better idea of what a fence might cost in your area, use an online pricing tool like this one. By typing in just a few details about your project, you can get an instant estimate.

While a Trex fence does have a higher initial cost than natural wood or vinyl (PVC), you’re paying for a fence that will last longer and require less of your free time to maintain.

Maintaining a secure perimeter is your first line of defense against potential threats. A metal fence from RADIUS serves as a visual deterrent backed with heavy metal components that give a higher level of protection compared to traditional alternatives.

Coated Galvanized Steel

All RADIUS metal fences are coated inside and out.

Rails And Nails - With Purpose

Much like our fence pickets, RADIUS takes care of which rails and nails we build with. Our standard back rails for wood privacy fencing are constructed of prime Douglas fir species wood. This provides superior stiffness and no more warping/twisting (seen in treated pine materials).

Getting all of these great products together is important too! We use a specialty winged tip Coated wood-to-metal screw the size of your pinkie to hold the rails to our steel posts. Once set up, the pickets get finished on the installation with Galvanized coated ring-shank nails. No need for screws on our pickets – it’ll take a crowbar or more to get these nails out when applied correctly.
