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.

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.

After many other contractor no-shows, I found Bin for my fence project and I'm glad I did. He built a long horizontal plank fence for me, and cleaned up many years of ivy overgrowth. The difference is amazing. I was very happy with Bin's communication, professionalism, quality of work, and how quickly he completed the work. I even had him do a second smaller lattice fence and gate for me. Happy that I found Bin. Thanks.

We were really happy with Bin and Quick Yard Care's work on our fence. We've become frustrated with how hard it is to even get estimates from most contractors, and we were finishing a fence project badly done and then abandoned by another fence company. Bin gave us a reasonable estimate, was very flexible when we had to rework part of it based on a slip-up on my part, and wrapped up quickly. Two thumbs up!

Dave and his crew were a pleasure to work with. We hired him to replace our front yard fence. He gave us a very reasonable price, started the day after I hired him and worked straight through until completion. He took away all of the debris from the old fence. We had a complication because no one place had enough of the fence we wanted so Dave ended up going to at least half a dozen places, from San Jose to the East Bay to get all the material he needed. I'm sure he didn't' plan on that extra time and gas, but did it with good humor. The result is that we had a new beautiful fence in three days. I'd hire him back in a minute and recommend him highly.

Such an incredible experience from start to finish. Gustavo came over same day to give me a quote for a front yard fence which was highly competitive and started a couple days later. He and his team were efficient, friendly, kept me looped in to the process throughout and adapted easily to anything I requested. The fence turned out beautifully. I would use this team over and over again!

We hired Bin and his brother to repair our wood fence that had been damaged when a tree fell. They came to give me an estimate in person and listened well to my concerns. After talking it through, they came up with a great solution to patch the fence instead of a costly replacement. They were even able to source weathered wood that made the repair invisible to notice. If you have a tricky landscape project and want tailored service, call Bin at Quick Lawn Care.

Paulo's work was of very high quality. I especially appreciated his checking in with me several times during the project to ensure he was on target with the look and other details of the work he was doing for me. He kept me posted about his schedule and his estimate of a week to complete my fence and other hardscape project was exceeded by only one day. I can highly recommend Paulo for any fencing or related work. He has an eye for detail and quality.

After going through several cases of people not showing up and/or ridiculously high estimates, we finally found Bin, who not only showed up early, but got our fence and gate replaced immediately (and with a few extras thrown in) for a completely reasonable price.

Working with Bin Ho at Quick Yard Care was an absolute pleasure. Bin and his team were punctual and responsive while rebuilding a large section of our fence. The final result is better than I imagined. I plan on hiring him again for a future job.

I highly recommend Israel and his team! They finished the project within the exact time quoted and under budget. Israel was easy to contact and always respectful of our time. Our new fence is better than we hoped, and are excited to bring the team back for future projects.

123 Remodeling & Painting's team did an incredible job building and installing a new fence in my backyard. They were quick and the quality is top notch. Hard workers and very trustworthy. Very responsive throughout the entire project Would recommend to anyone. Really couldn't be happier with the results.
although he started off fine for day 1 of the fence project, paul was, ultimately, unethical, unprofessional, lacked follow through, stopped communicating with me, and left the job unfinished. i am now having to hire a licensed professional to finish the job he started, costing me more money. i would never recommend paul for any job.

Highly recommended. Bin and his crew are professional and courteous. I had a fence replaced and Pavers put in my back yard. They worked efficiently and kept a neat work environment throughout the process. Were sensitive the the foliage and took great care. I could not be happier with the results. Quick yard care is a great name, call bin and you will be underway in no time.

Matt did an amazing job replacing one of our fence posts. We have dogs, and needed the job done ASAP. Matt reached out immediately with a super reasonable quote. I was able to get the work scheduled for 2 days later. We didn’t even need to be home during the repair. Got home from work and the job was done! Thanks Matt!

Overall Eulises and his team were great and I'm very happy with how their work turned out. He was responsive, flexible, and on the rare occasion that something didn't quite meet my expectations, it was very quickly taken care of. They replaced 90 feet of privacy fence, built a custom gate to my design, and repaired plaster cracks inside my home. I would definitely hire them again.
