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.

Because of a wind storm our backyard fence fell and caused the neighbor's fence to fall. Our fence and the neighbor's had many irregularities to repair. It was like putting a puzzle together. Jose did a great job. I would hire him again without hesitation.

Noel is honest and straight forward. He is unlicensed, but has experience building fences. If you are in a hurry he may not be your guy, because he works several jobs at a time. It took over a month to get my fence built.

Al did a great job on our fence project. He scoped and built a galvanized square steel tube frame as backing for a "Sonoma barn house style corrugated tin panel" fence in San Francisco. We love it, as it has transformed our back deck and made it more usable.

Henrique was great - he tried to come in as low as he could, and got the job done super fast! The job was a fence replacement where the old fence had fallen in. He put in galvanized footing into the cement head wall, pressure treated 4x4s and really nice looking panels. Super job and super friendly!

Matt is amazing! He is friendly, responsive, and personable. He helped us replace a dilapidated fence for our home. Our fence separates a busy street and sidewalk from our yard and we didn't want everything to be exposed for too long during construction (we live in SF city). Not only did Matt do a fantastic job at a reasonable rate, he went the extra mile and got the job done within one day! Our new fence is sturdy and looks great. Matt is a very skilled craftsman. He hauled away the old fence and even came back a week later to make sure all the old junk was fully removed from our yard. Five stars. Highly recommended.

They changed the design of the fence to get the lower beam off the ground, which was facilitating rot. They did a great job, very happy with the result.

We had a great experience with Gonzalez landscaping. The team tore down an old fence and built a brand new one. Our home is on a hill so the job was not an easy one. We LOVE our new fence and could not be happier with the price, process or results. We would highly recommend them! In fact, we are hiring them to help us with another project!

We called Wise Stage Remodeling for a new fence installation in our back yard. We weren't totally ready for the scope of what we needed in our backyard, so we asked if they could help us transform our front yard into something pleasant. Sergey Asadov came back with a beautiful landscaped idea for our front yard. He built a fence, and created some extraordinarily beautiful front yard landscape and planters. A fence was built, modern styled concrete poured and landscaping was created. The front of our house is a happy place to come home now. We are definitely going to try and hire Wise Stage Remodeling for future projects!

Pedro returned my inquiry right away, scheduled a time to come by the next day to assess the project, then showed up the following business day to get to work. I had a leaning fence and he was quick to determine the fix, he gave me options and his price was totally reasonable. The actual work he did was fantastic. He not only repaired the fence perfectly but he also took extra precautions to ensure my new puppy couldn't sneak through any gaps. He also did an additional repair on another fence in my yard. He was a delight to work with, a total pro and his work was perfect. I highly recommend Pedro!

Jose did good work. We're on a steep slope and he kept the angles consistent. The overall finished fence is sturdy and good-looking. It was a little difficult to communicate at times, but everything worked out.
