I am located in Miami Florida and I need to build a privacy fence in the
back and side yard along the property line. I looked at wood fences, PVC
fences and chain linked fence and I really would like a wall (concrete block
stucco) if I can afford one. I imagine the wall would be about 5 to 6 feet
tall and will need a footing. The back property line is about 110' long and
the side property line about 75' long so a total 185' in length.
I started to look for fence contractors and to my amazement I cannot find a
single contractor that will do walls, most will just do PVC, wood or chain
linked, well may be walls and fences are two different animals so I looked
for concrete contractors and they don't do privacy walls either. I am
unable to find a single concrete contractor in my area that will do this,
let alone give me an idea what the cost may be (per linear foot for
example). Does anyone know a contact in south Florida or may be I was
looking under the wrong category?
Thanks in advance,
masons "do" concrete block, but I think a poured concrete fence would be cheaper
stronger. people who pour swimming pools down in Fla might be the right people
the right price. Ingrid

Ouch...just had one company gave me a quote. For 175 linear feet of
concrete wall at 5' in height they quoted me $40,000.00. This is definitely
a lot more than I expected. So I would need to find another way to do this.
Does anyone know a contact in south Florida or may be I was
I am in Broward.
There is a home in my neighborhood that is having a concrete wall installed
right now. When I go by there in the next couple of days I will note the
name of the contractor for you and report back.
Hi Toni did you ever get a chance to get the contractor's information? I
got a quote from a large company who quoted me $40,000 to construct the 175
linear feet of concrete wall at 5' in height. But that seems kind of high,
they said they need to do soil borings to ensure there is no coral rock and
hire geotechnical engineers to analyze the soil and architect engineers to
design the footings etc...so they add up. If it is that expensive I will
not be able to construct a wall...but I will be curious what the quote would
be for a smaller and more personable company.
