Sounds typical of quotes for construction work at the moment. A neighbour got a quote for a 50ft wooden fence from a local company they had used before. 2,000 for 50ft, mainly materials. That's 40 / ft. So the old fence is now propped up until the price of wood and other materials drops.

Let's hope the price falls before the fence does...

A friend of mine has his own maintainence business and was on about the price he has to pay for fence panels , posts and even the postcrete have all rocketed . He is loosing work because people can't or won't pay the prices he is forced to charge due to it if he wants to make a profit

I built a pergola and the price of the wood was obscene. Where I bought the wood was a timber merchant and the postcrete price wasn't too bad but when I looked at B&Q as I was short a bag and needed more, their price was over double that of the timber merchants, also they were limiting their bags to 3 per customer, no good if you're putting fencing up or in my case a large pergola! Priced up decking to go under the pergola, I needed something like 20 lengths of 4.8m and 20 lengths of the 3.2m, plus about 10 lengths of 4x2 in 4.8m to make the subframe for the decking to lay on. All over my old patio so no postcrete. The wood alone was over 850!
