It’s true.  There is a fencing shortage right now in Wyoming.  But it’s not just Wyoming, it is actually impacting the entire country. If you have been considering having a new fence installed on your Wyoming property, this article explores what you need to know about the current Wyoming fencing market.


Wyoming Fencing Shortage: How it Impacts Fence Prices

Shortages typically cause price increases.  This is true for fences and for just about anything else.  The current fencing shortage in Wyoming is no different.  Prices have increased on fencing of all types significantly over the past year.  Unfortunately, we expect fence prices in Wyoming to keep climbing for the foreseeable future.


Fence prices have increased for other reasons beyond the fencing shortage.  Here is an article about why Wyoming fence prices are increasing – which covers this topic in much greater detail


Factors Contributing to the Fence Shortage in Florida

It is easy to blame everything on Covid.


To be sure, Covid plays a role in the current fencing shortage both directly and indirectly.


All of a sudden, everyone was home.  People looked around their homes and their yards and began to tackle some of those projects that had slipped by for too long.  Additionally, with everyone home at the same time, all the time – many people felt they wanted more privacy.


It turns out that fences became very popular, very suddenly!


The sudden increase in demand while fence manufacturers across the country were forced to shut down or scale back operations for a while was a deadly combination for the supply of fencing.


Once fence companies realized there was an impending shortage of fencing, many of them (including us) snatched up as much fencing material as possible. This “run” on the available fencing supply was too much for the industry to handle at a time of decreased production due to Covid.


Fast forward to today … and we have a fencing shortage in Wyoming and across the entire United States.
