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.

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 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 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.

All the fencing contractors I contacted were extremely busy. Gerardo was the only one who offered to come and look at the job of replacing a small section of fencing and installing a larger/wider gate. His quote was reasonable, and he told me he would let me know when he had an opening for the installation. The time came sooner than I thought, and his workers were neat, courteous and professional, and they did a great job installing the new fence and gate. They completely removed the old one and hauled it away. I will call them again when we're ready for more fence replacement.

Jerry did a nice, clean, professional job himself. UPDATE. After getting 4 quotes on another fence project, since Fencing by Jerry didn't pop up, I called him to give me a quote and he was the only one who said he could do it, (replace fence poles on their present spot instead of adding 16 of them to stabilize an otherwise good fence on other spots that would make the fence look ugly). He gave me a quote a little higher than some of the others, we negotiated (because my elderly neighbors may not have the same economic comfort) and he just finished the job in 3 days and looks SOLID. his assistant was very good too. Clean and professional job. Very happy. Now I will only call him for my next project at another property I have.

Louis and team went above and beyond to build a fence and gate in my backyard. He was great to work with, walking me through the whole process and listening to all my questions. He also went out of his way to help fix some of my sprinkler issues, which I really appreciated, as this would have eventually damaged my new fence and wasted a lot of water. Armand helped paint the new and existing fence to complete my backyard project. I could not be happier with how my backyard looks.

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!

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 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.

The guys came out to look at fence I needed repairing. I was surprised by their quick response. They said they would come back the next day to fix it, but they never showed up. Furthermore, they did not respond to multiple requests asking if/when they are coming. If they didn't want to do the job, they should have told me so I could get someone else without wasting my time. Update: Shortly after posting that they did not show up for the job, I was contacted with an apology and an offer to do the job the same day. I had found someone else, but they came out and did the job anyway. If not for the initial issue of lack of communication, I would give four stars.
