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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for La Mesa fence professionals
Thumbtack Customer
I am very satisfied with the horizontal wood fence installed at my home by Amos fence. Many installers had come to look at the job and were either too intimidated by the steep slope of the fence location or gave very high unreasonable bids to do the job. Brandon came out, did his measurements and gave me a very competitive quote on site and had no reservations about the difficulty of the job. Brandon installed a well crafted horizontal wooden fence for me, which included building a gate, staining the fence, rerouting irrigation pipes for the fence, repairing an existing concrete issue to accommodate the fence, and even demolishing an old deck and hauling off all the materials. I couldn't be happier with the final product and wouldn't hesitate to hire Amos fence again in the future.

Antonio was the best contractor for our fence installation! The fence turned out beautiful, I was truly amazed at the quality and professionalism through every step of our project. He responded immediately to my Thumbtack request and was able to come out quickly to assess the project's needs. We needed a 33 foot rod-iron fence replaced with a total privacy wood fence. He suggested various options, and promptly submitted a reasonable quote for a long-lasting, quality fence. Him and his wife are a team, they are respectful, friendly, professional and very detailed. When the stain I chose for the fence didn't turn out like in the brochure, they were happy to re-stain with a new color and didn't charge me extra. They cleaned up their work area immediately, and they ensured every step of the fence-making was done correctly. And we walked through together to review every column of fence planks to ensure the stain was done to our taste. When it rained a couple days later once we were done and the fence door expanded, I emailed Antonio and he came over to fix it. We love how the fence turned out, two toned so we can match the house trims but also bring some brightness to the area. The gate works nice and now we have the privacy we were hoping for. Thank you Antonio, I highly recommend his services - I know he paints and does some handyman work too!

I needed a double gate and a little bit of fencing for my yard. Antonio did an excellent job and communicated well during the process. He was also very accommodating as far as scheduling. I would use him and his team again in the future.

This is the first time I used Thumbtack and I am glad I did. Brandon Amos did the perfect fence installation in a very difficult, sloped environment. I am so happy I found Brandan Amos and his company. They have the contractor insurance and qualifications you can count on.

Joe did a good job on the fencing but his ways and means of communicating leaves something to be desired. The last thing a client wants is long explanations of phone problems or tales of woe in Thumbtack. Joe, I left you numerous messages in voice mail and email. Not once did you reply. That's not good.
