Chadd removed 3 large building structures, removed 100' of chain link fence, built 100' of wood fence, installed wood gate, removed dirt from back yard and replaced with new dirt. This project was larger than expected, Chadd embraced all the challenges that came with the project. He is very professional and did a fantastic job, I highly recommend him for any project.

An outstanding and forthright young man of many many talents! He is very knowledgeable about many things and is very amiable young man. I did have to go with another tree trimming service due to the very precaious nature of the limbs in question, but Danny absolutely did know what he was talking about in regards to my Giant Euc (Blue Gum)...I will most definitely phone him for the projects i have yet to complete on my list...one of which is poor crumbled 8 ft fence that one of the 60 foot limbs that came crashing into my yard took out! I highly recommend Danny Wright!

Antonio was one of the best contractors I've ever hired. He replaced a section of chain link fencing with wood fencing on a property I just purchased. He was very pleasant, knowledgable, efficient, and courteous. He came exactly on time, updated me every day regarding progress, and cleaned up after he was finished. All this at a very reasonable rate. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Antonio again!

I’m really happy with my fence! I live on a busy street with kids and a dog, so it was critical to have one up for safety - but it’s also beautiful and adds a lot of privacy to my home. I had multiple fencing companies come out to do a bid, but I decided to go with Lance and his crew - despite not being an exclusive “fencing company”. His bid was reasonable, he has the best reviews, and generally just seemed like a nice guy that I could trust to do good work. He and his crew were able to knock it out in a few days and it’s a pretty large fence surrounding my property. He even did some tree trimming so that it wouldn’t interfere. He was able to really deliver what we were looking for, providing different ideas and options along the way. I would definitely hire them again - in fact I already have another project lined up for them!

Brett was the easiest contractor to communicate with on a project that was not complicated but small. He had his crew on the job on the agreed date and they worked diligently and professionally. This was a small residential project involving removal of old wooden fencing and replacing it with chain link. A small separate section was replaced with wood. Great job and highly recommended.

Contacted Miguel for a quote, he was very prompt in coming out and sending over pricing for different options. He is a professional and is a person of his word which is hard to find nowadays. We have hired him to install the chain link fence. I will leave a comment upon completion of the work.

Native Fence/Jessie Lopez and his crew installed a 500 plus foot black chain link fence with two gates on a one acre rugged and uneven property in Escondido's Hidden Meadows section. The job took three and a-half days. Once they started, there was no interruptions or delays. They had to move and drill through some large rocks, tree trimming, and brush clearance. He agreed to different additions in the middle of the job...no problems with that. Finished within the time agreed to. Every detail covered. Cleaned up after each day. Easy to discuss options with. Couldn't be happier with the work and results.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much is a redwood fence per foot?

A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

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 vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

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.

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.
