Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to fix a fence?

The average cost of fence repairs is around $250, with most homeowners paying anywhere between $200 and $300. Fence repairs have a wide range of potential costs, however, ranging from $50 to as much as $1,443. The cost of your fence repair project depends on multiple factors, including where you live, what type of repair you need, the terrain and the fence materials used.

Contact several fence repair professionals near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your fence.

Why does my gate sag?

A gate can sag for a number of reasons. One common reason is that the screws holding the hinges in the wood or other post material have come loose, causing gravity to pull the fence down. Another common problem is the gate post’s lack of stability. Posts can become loose and start to lean, or if they are wooden, they can even rot at the point where they meet the ground.

What are some common fence repairs?

The most common fence repairs are aimed at fixing:

  • Missing boards or slats. This is a common problem with wood fences.
  • Fence material corrosion. This occurs on metal fences like chain link and iron.
  • A sagging gate. This could result from a tilting fence post or loose hinges.
  • Post movement. Typically, this is caused by frost, corrosion or water.
  • Stains. Moisture and other elements can stain fencing, which may require a professional to remove it.
  • Warping. Warped, curled, cupped or bent boards are unsightly and less effective and need to be replaced.

If you notice any of the above issues with your fence, reach out to fence repair professionals near you to start getting cost estimates and schedule an appointment.

Should I repair or replace my fence?

Fence repair is better for common problems that only affect small areas, such as a broken picket or a shifting fence post. However, there is a rule of thumb to follow: If the repair project requires replacing 20% or more of your fence, it’s probably time to replace the whole fence. The exception to this rule is if the fence is fairly new and just part of it is damaged. 

Who installs fences?

Fencing contractors are the best choice when you want to have a fence installed on your property. While there are several types of professionals who can likely handle this service — including handymen, landscapers and general contractors — a fencing contractor has the experience to know what could cause potential problems in the long run. This might include wet spots, vegetation or other issues with the land. 

When choosing a professional to install a fence on your property, make sure they have credentials and experience.

How much does it cost to fix a gate?

Gates can be more expensive to fix than other parts of a fence, and there are several reasons for this. The first is that gates are the only moving parts on a fence — hence they have more components that can wear out, as well as friction and the potential for rusting and sagging. Fixing a gate may require a total replacement or simply replacing certain components like hinges. Sometimes, the repair may involve fixing the surrounding fence.

Contact several gate repair professionals near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your gate.

What are some common gate repairs?

The most common gate repairs tend to be associated with a sagging gate. A gate repair professional will check the hinge system. If the hinges have come loose, they will detach the gate, set the hinges in the proper location and reattach everything. 

Another common repair is replacing or repairing a sagging fence post by digging a new posthole and/or using a concrete footing.

What's the cheapest fence to install?

The cheapest type of fence to install is (usually) a chain-link fence. Averaging between $7 and $12 per linear foot, this type of fencing is strong and secure and allows homeowners to maintain visibility while adding protection to their property. Chain-link fences are constructed from steel coated in aluminum, vinyl or zinc for weather resistance. 

You can get a more accurate cost estimate for your chain-link fence by contacting professionals who specialize in installing these fences.

How much does it cost to put up a chain-link fence?

Chain-link fence is one of the most affordable options for adding safety and value to your home or business. The national average chain-link fence installation cost is $2,750. Chain-link fences are relatively simple for the pros to install; a fence of less than 150 linear feet can often be put up in under one day. A good rule of thumb is to add an additional workday for each additional 100 linear feet of fence to be installed.

Chain-link fence installation costs are affected by the fluctuating cost of steel, regional labor rates, the height of fence you select, and the features you select, such as a powder-coated finish. The industry standard is galvanized steel, which is rust- and corrosion-resistant. Galvanized chain-link fence installation cost, including labor and materials, is typically $12 per linear foot. For a more contemporary and elegant option, black powder-coated galvanized chain-link fence might cost approximately $15 per linear foot on average, including materials and labor. For industrial sites or businesses, 10-foot-high galvanized chain-link fences may provide additional security, but also have an added cost. A 10-foot-high chain-link fence could cost $17-$18 per linear foot, including labor and materials.

Mike did a great job on our fence. Took a little longer than expected due to some stubbornly hard digging and rock. Overall, he did a great job and the fence looks great. Would definitely recommend and use for future projects.

Mr. Escobar and his entire team were extremely fast at building my high quality new fence in just two days. He responded immediately and starting working on it the next day. Very easy to work with and fence looks great! Highly recommend!!

My wife and I wanted a small, wooden fence to be put in our yard, so I decided to do some research and that's how we found kenneth. Kenneth built us a fence that was exactly how we envisioned it. He was great to have around, very respectful to us and our property, and very professional. What I appreciated the most was his willingness to change a few things about the fence, that we requested, to give us exactly what we wanted. His main concern was to make us happy with the finished product and he delivered. I definitely recommend kenneth for anyone looking to build a fence

Giovanni was the first to respond and had the best price. Great job on matching the style of the original fence (already on one side). Neighbors have stopped to compliment the new fence and ask for contact information. These guys are meticulous and clearly take pride in their work. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat.

We had Francisco build a gated fence that had a fairly contemporary look out of wood to match the design of a fence screen around our AC units. He surveyed the site first and provided a fair estimate that included all labor and materials. It took two days since he had to set the posts in concrete for the hinge of the gate. I would recommend Francisco for your job.

I saw great reviews about Francisco so I was excited to hire him. I asked him to install missing fence my dad removed for a dog pin before he died and never put back, which bascially connects the fence around the property line again. So the fence was used, Francisco stated he had leftover fence from a previous job and did not need to take the dog pin down. He charged me $130 I paid $135 before hand through PayPal because I reside in Florida which was my fault. I'm not a contractor so I said fine your the expert. If it cost more, I would have paid any price to have it done right. However, he did not go along our property line he took a short cut a put a tiny piece of fence just to the garage. Since I live in Florida and was not present I asked could the job be completed Thursday when my mother was off he insisted that no one needed to be home and if he could do it Wednesday my mistake again. I told him after it was complete I was unhappy and could he fix it? I'm willing to pay whatever extra, again I am not an expert so I'm relying on him he never replied back. So sad. Hopefully the next person I will have a contract stating to put the fence along the property line. You lived and you learn.

This was done for my daughter and she was very happy with the job done. It took a little longer to complete the fence than originally thought, however, it was done professionally and correctly! I would recommend Josh to anyone!

Mr Escobar always answered my texts/emails promptly, and his estimate was reasonable. Because we were concerned with nearby water, sewer, and gas lines underground, he dug each fence pole hole by hand instead of using a mechanical hole digger. They consulted me several times during the installation to be sure I agreed with the way they were handling any changes. Their staff was friendly and cared about doing good work. My fence is sturdy and attractive, and they carried away all materials, including scraps of plastic and paper, when the job was finished. I would recommend Mr. Escobar and his team to anyone who has projects to be done. He is careful, dependable, and reasonable.

I was very happy with the finished product I got out of Josh and his team. They were all very nice and were there when then they said they were going to be there. I believe Josh was fair when negotiating price and there were never any additional charges as the job moved forward. I highly recommend Josh for your next privacy fence job.

Josh and his team were very professional. Josh actually LISTENED to what I needed and gave suggestions. He provided updates as to what he and the team would be doing and everyone was always courteous. Fence looks great (I'm happy...my dog is happy!) I wish I had more projects for Tru Builders...they're first on my list when I do need something done. Thanks, Josh!

Craig was an absolute professional throughout our entire fence installation experience. He was punctual down to the minute for when he would be there to give quotes as well as complete the work. He was honest on what he could and could not do based on our landscape. There is no one else I'd trust more with our yard than Craig. We will be recommending him to family and friends as well as using him in the future on other projects. Thank you so much Craig!

Mike came to my house and looked at my yard, arriving exactly when he said he would. 2 days later he contacted me with a verbal estimate. I agreed and he scheduled the work for the next Saturday, but called later to postpone to Monday. That was fine with me. Two young men arrived on Monday - not at 9:00 but about 11:30 - they did call to say they were running late. One of the guys had a broken arm. They got half the job completed the first day. They arrived about the same time on Tuesday and worked until dark, I think. I had to leave before they finished so they returned the next day to get paid. The final price was $100 more than originally quoted. They had not completed cleaning up the yard and did a little more then, but I still have had much to clean up myself - and some materials and tree parts remain in the ditch that is now out of my reach. I asked that more ties should be added at the top of the fence but they have not returned to complete that. I had hoped Mike would be my go-to guy for further projects,
