Here is a list of 3 free online fencing calculator websites. Using these websites, you can check how many posts, rails, picket spacing, picket width, etc., are needed for the fence that you need to add for backyard or some other areas.
These sites also have other features which are very useful. For example, you can check the dummy diagram that represents posts, rails, picket spacing, etc., for fencing, check estimated cost for each item needed for fencing, screws or nails required, etc.
Let’s check these free online fencing calculators one by one.
Inchcalculator.com (Homepage) comes with a very useful fence calculator feature. You can add fence length, number of rails, picket spacing, and width, and then check the calculation. The output will show the number of posts needed with particular inches, rails, pickets, bags post concrete, and nails or screws for fence.
In addition to that, it also shows estimated material cost which includes redwood pricing, cedar, and pressure treated. A sample diagram is also provided by this website to understand about fence posts, rails, etc.
Apart from that, it also shows an installation demo based on the input and output details. The installation demo shows a diagram showing the fence with total length, number of posts, picket spacing, rails per section, etc. All these features make it one of the best online fencing calculators.
