Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

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.

How much does it cost to install a fence gate?

Adding a gate to your fence can be a practical way to provide access to a yard, work area or outdoor living space while ensuring safety and privacy. Gate installation costs will vary based on the gate material you select, the size of your gate, whether you install a fence at the same time, and any special features you’d like to add. Standard opening size for a single-wide gate is 4 feet; a double-wide gate is 8 feet. A small gate may be for decoration; a double-wide gate can be mounted on a rolling caster system to allow access for cars or wide loads. Here are some examples of average fence gate installation costs:

  • 4-foot, single-swing chain-link gate: $100 for materials and installation costs.
  • 28-foot wheeled chain-link gate on a caster system: $800-$1,000 for materials and installation costs.
  • 4-foot, single-swing wood gate: $75.
  • 8-foot double-wide wood gate: $150.
  • 4-foot white vinyl walk-through gate: $300–$400 for materials and installation costs.
  • 8-foot, double-wide white vinyl gate: about $800 for materials and installation costs.
  • White vinyl gate fence more than 8 feet wide: $1,200-$1,500 for materials and installation.
  • Arched black powder-coated aluminum pool gates: $175-$200 per gate.

How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
  • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
  • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
  • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

Does adding a fence increase property value?

Fencing may increase the value of your property. However, this depends on what type of fence is installed and the purpose of the fence. For example, a fence may be worth more to a property that needs it to diminish noise coming from a highway. Fences may also be a plus to dog owners who require a backyard fence. 

When deciding whether to install a fence in your yard, consult with your realtor or real estate expert. They can help you prioritize home improvement projects that will add value to your home.

I had a fence blow down due to the heavy wind and rain in January. I contacted a few fence people for estimates as well as recommendations for building an entire new fence across my backyard as well as to repair the broken fence. Fred took time to thoroughly evaluate the fence and come up with some suggestions to discuss with me on the best way to approach the repair or replacement. I chose to have the entire fence replaced. Could not have been better. The work crew were neat and tidy and conscientious about their work. I would use Alpha again for other projects and would highly recommend them. Great people to work with and had my best interest in mind excellent excellent!!

Great overall experience. Took my small project which was to repair my fence at a reasonable price while others either declined my project because it was to small stating they only were interested in new fence installation or didn’t even bother responding to my request. Work quality was fantastic. Very professional. Really awesome guy. Highly recommend for fence repairs.

My whole cedar fence was replaced efficiently, fast, and they were very clean. It only took two days. They gave me a good price. My neighbors were also very satisfied with the work since we share the fence and are hiring them to replace the rest of their fences. I also intend to hire them again for other landscaping projects. I highly recommend them.

From the very beginning, Juan was great to deal/work with. He was quick on his responses to my questions and was always on time (or even early) whenever we were to meet or start work on the gate/fence project. He did excellent work and I couldn't be more happy with how my new gate and fence turned out. I highly recommend him and would definitely have him work on more projects for me in the future.

Miguel replaced an 80 foot fence between me and an neighbor. He finished it in a day and a half and we couldn't be happier with the quality of his work. I would not hesitate to recommend him to a friend or family member.

This gentleman has great reviews, but if the system would allow zero stars that’s what I would assign. Complete waste of time... he never showed up. Twice, I have waited all day for this gentleman to come and work on my fence for nothing. Unresponsive, unreliable, and unprofessional.

A well deserved 5 stars. If I could give him more, I would. His craftsmanship was exceptional. I ended up with a well lined fence and gate. My neighbors were happy with the work an I believe a little jealous. I strongly recommend him and I will be hiring him to do work for me again.

Fred of Alpha Handyman Services and his crew did a great job building two fences for my yard. If there was anything that I wanted corrected, Fred had it done right away to my satisfaction. I would recommend Alpha Handyman Services to others for this type of work. Also, they cleaned up all of their trash and debris when completed.

Juan was very easy to work and always replies quickly. He completed our fence project using quality material and he did an excellent job. He completed the job quickly and even text me a picture when he was finished. I would definitely recommend him and use him again for any job inside and outside my home.

After getting a few outragous estimates and having multiple handymen flake on me, I went through thumbtack to find Rudell in an effort to replace a severely damaged fence in my back yard. Rudell responded to me immediatly, provided an estimate on the same day, and started work two days after my thumbtack query. He put in the extra effort to finish the job in one day, which was faster than his estimate. The tennants at the property were very satisfied with his courtesy and professionalism. I will absolutely use Rudell again for handyman jobs on my property!
