Use this tool to quickly estimate the materials needed for building your fence.

## Fence Estimate Calculator

This calculator will help you estimate the total cost of building a fence. You will need to input the following parameters:

**Fence Length:**Total length of the fence in feet.**Fence Height:****Fence Material Cost:**Cost per linear foot of the fence material.**Post Spacing:**Distance between fence posts in feet.**Post Cost:**Cost of each fence post.

The calculator uses these inputs to compute the total cost by multiplying the fence length by the material cost per foot and adding the cost of the posts. The number of posts is calculated based on the total length and post spacing, ensuring an additional post at the end for completion.

### How to Use:

- Fill in all the required fields: Fence Length, Fence Material Cost, Post Spacing, and Post Cost.
- Click on the “Calculate” button to get the result.
- The total estimated cost will appear in the “Result” field.

### Limitations:

- This calculator assumes a straight fence line and does not account for corners or gates.
- Cost related to labor, taxes, or additional hardware (e.g., screws, brackets) is not included.
- The height of the fence is not used in the cost calculation but may be necessary for compliance and planning purposes.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculate Total Length of Fence Needed
