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.

We agreed to work on two projects. One was a 56 feet fence replacement and the other adding a side gate. The fence was replaced A-OK. I paid for the fence. The side gate he agreed to do along with this work, he postponed for almost a month. I understand if he later figured some challenges in the project and bailed out but I dont see that as professional.

Everardo was very professional and did a fairly good job of installing a new fence. The quality of materials he used was very good. He was very meticulous and left the work area in a clean state. I would recommend him for any fence related installation or repair.

Wish I can pay with a credit card. Can't evaluate his work until I have tested the sturdiness of the fence.

Saia was punctual and very professional with giving me a quote. He was very punctual and his work building my fence was exceptional. My tenant and my neighbor were very satisfied with the quality of the fence. My only small suggestion would be to be able to accept payment via Venmo or PayPal or something similar. I’m in the LA area, so I wasn’t present at the time of the job and it would make the transaction quicker for both parties. Other than that, I would highly recommend Saia to anyone who would want great quality fence work at a competitive price!

When I contacted Danny he responded right away and even came over within an hour after we spoke on the phone. This project was done during the pandemic so there were not enough supplies to fix my fence, he had to got through multiple home builder supplier just to get enough supplies to fix my fence. Project was done on schedule and it was done based on what we agreed on. Will work with him on future home projects.

Scott and his team did an absolutely fantastic amazing job! They fabricated custom metal posts for our back patio which were used to hand patio lights. He also fixed our wood fence. He was responsive, the work got done fast, and the quality is incredible. Great experience using Eastwood Industries.

Had an appointment set for last Thursday. Received a message that he was busy and would not be able to make our appointment. He asked if he could come over the week-end. I got back to him that afternoon with a time for Saturday. At 9:08 pm on Saturday I received another message asking about coming out on Sunday. Less than 20 minutes later I gave him a time and since then I have heard nothing back. Edwin fence must be way to busy to want my business. What has happened to business ethics.
