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 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.

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.

Jason built and installed a fence. We had several problems with the fence and asked for them to be repaired. It has been almost a year and a multitude of e-mails, texts, and phone calls, yet no repairs have been made. Apologies have been made for lost texts and emails, and "let me get back to you on a good day/time", but was never followed through, despite more requests. On one scheduled repair appointment, Jason didn't show up. The repairs include a large gap in the fence, several largely cracked (1/2 inch or greater) boards, and nails protruding from above the rails (nails that missed the rails). During the installation of the fence, our drip system was literally torn out of the ground with pieces of it strewn on our patio. Additionally, several limbs on a small tree near the fence line were broken off.

I had 8 sections of fence blown down by a recent storm. I needed the old fence removed and replaced. I got several estimates through Thumbtack. Dan's estimate was very reasonable and his company had done good work for my daughter, so I hired Dan to do the job. Dan's Construction showed up as scheduled and did good work. Next time I need fence work, I'll hire them again.

Jason came out Monday after contacting Thumbtack on Stormy Saturday. Took a look at the damage and said ...."take about 10 to 15 minutes"...It was the "plate" of the side fence where the gate opens & closes..It's attached to the house itself. It popped out of the stucco and caused the gate door to get jammed!...He professionally caulked the holes in the stucco siding...replaced the plate section of the fence correctly and now the gate opens and closes better than ever. Jason knows his fences thats for sure!...Has all the tools and the experience..Do not call anyone else!...And the Price was just right!....I'm even having him come out and do our other fence that has weak posts!...

Sam gave me a great price to replace my redwood fence and completed the work in just a couple days. His crew even worked in the pouring rain and during a national holiday. The fence turned out beautifully and they cleaned up after themselves. I wouldn't hesitate to hire The Dream Builders again.

Frontline Fence Company was contracted to remove and haul away approximately 90 feet of existing fence and to reinstall one. The job took about 4 days and we received personalized, professional service from this company. In fact, Michelle returned to explain to my neighbor (who was unavailable at first appt) what was required for a successful project. The entire process went very smooth and we are very pleased with the outcome.

Lee did a great job securing our fence after the heavy winds caused it to lean and sag. He came out for an estimate the day after I posted the job, and fixed it the following day.

Sam and his team did a great job putting up a fence. Got me in right away and price was fair. It wasn't an easy job so I really appreciate his flexibility and staying super late so he could get it all done in one day for me. Would definitely recommend.

Job has not been completed yet. However, initial front end work ie, getting the estimate, and discussing the project (new fence) has been a pleasure. Michele, was quick and efficient in getting me the details of the project and went above and beyond my expectations in delivering the estimate in a timely, professional manner. She even gave me an address down the street where they completed an RV access gate and it looked terrific. I'm confident that this project will be completed to my and my neighbors expectations. I will post completed review when project is done on Tues. 12/23/14.

Ok, its kind of scary when you hire someone with a big project like building 170' feet of fence, because you have to trust to a certain degree their workmanship, professionalism, and loyalty to the customer. My experience with Dan's Construction, was over the top and they exceeded all my expectations. Their workmanship excellent, there communication to the customer to ensure their happiness with the project suburb, and it was clear to me (because I watched them throughout the day) that each worker was dedicated, hard working and passionate about their job. I can't say enough good things about Dan's construction.

Dan and his team replaced 82ft of fence for us as well as a 30ft section with an RV Gate and normal walk through gate. They started at 9am when they said the would. They had 4 guys and busted the job out in one day. Quality was good and cleanliness was equal. Wife and I weren't there when they finished so he told us to call him with questions or concerns. We decided 2 small details were not exactly what we wanted. Dan agreed to come back in a couple days to fix it without charging us. I would use them again without question.
