Homeownership is one aspect that comes with so many demands, and one specific aspect is fencing. While you can build your house and leave out the fence, it is important to have one as well.
A fence, for instance, would act as a shelter from elements that would wreak your home, decoration if well made or even protection from unwanted trespassers and petty thieves.
There are many uses of a fence, so are the types of fences. Today we look at the concrete fence and what you would require to have one on a 50 *100 ft plot.
According to First Village Construction company, who offer engineering and construction services, one needs at least eleven (11) trips of hardcore stones.
“One would require at least 5000 concrete blocks for the specific plot, six trips of lake sand, five trips of river sand and 55 bags of cement.”
Other items one requires include; at least 2000 clay bricks for the foundation, 10meters of DPC, 3 rolls of Hoop iron.
Also, you would need 8 pieces of iron bars, binding wire to a tune of 2kg, 10 pieces of timber and one trip of aggregate.
According to First Village Construction company, one would need between Shs 4m and 4.3m in labor costs from start to accomplishment of the job.
The biggest cost would be on concrete blocks, as one would part with at least Shs10m to raise the required number.
A trip of hardcore goes for Shs120,000 while lake sand is costed at Shs260,000 per trip, bringing the total to 1.3m and 1.6m respectively.
Other costs include; Shs960,000 on River sand, Shs600,000 on clay bricks and 1.7m on cement.
10meteres of DPC- Shs35,000
3 rolls of Hoop iron- Shs110,000
8 pieces of iron bars- 280,000
2kgs of binding wire- 12,000
