    I would just like the average ballpark cost of a three rail pipe fence; setting post, 10' apart, top rail is 48" high, the top rail and posts are 2 7/8" and the 2nd and 3rd rail are 2 3/8". Average cost per foot or hour?. Thanks

      No chain link just posts with a top rail, mid rail & lower rail. Sorry I can't help ya as I don't do this stuff everyday so someone who does probably knows a per foot price off the top of their head.

        You may want to post thickness or gauge of pipe material. Tubing and schedule
        40 pipe makes a big difference.

          for the most part for a basic structural hand railing i quote $70 per foot

            We are about $70/ft. 1 1/2"sch 40 pipe and posts. Finished with primer
            btw. Code requires our posts to be a max of 4'-0" apart max

                Posts 10' apart is to far I space 1-1/4" pipe at 5' on center or less and 1-1/2" pipe at 6'-8" max.

                Core drilled into concrete price primed 3 line if I'm doing 50' or more is approx.
                $ 70.00 per ft but goes up when doing less that 50'

                  You are asking about more of a farm style yard fence correct? In southwest Missouri you could probably get that done for 16 dollars a foot. That is if you drive the post concrete would cost you more because it takes longer. That is figured with reject pipe. 2 7/8 & 2 3/8 on 8 foot centers

                    Also I might add how long, you must charge more for short stuff because it cost to drive there and roll out your stuff. Also soft ground rocky ground and customer annoyance are factors to figure:-)

                      Or figure material plus welding per hour.
                      Most of the time people like figured by the foot better. And gives you more incentive to get done. say you have 100 foot to do you can do that in 1 day and make 900 dollars after you pay for your material.
