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.

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.

This is my first rating on thumbtack. I have to say I was happy to find a reference service such as thumbtack, which lead me to find Edwin's fencing. I had a smaller fence issue I had originally posted help for and got a very reasonable quote. So after researching others who bid for the project and checking work background and photos of other projects done and references, I hired this company for that smaller fence project. Edwin was personal to talk with. He was kind and very professional. I got a reasonable quote for the first smaller project and was pleased with his quote. We set a day and time which he fit me into the schedule for that project rather quickly from hiring on thumbtack to speaking on the phone (timely replays). Subsequently, before we could get to that project the big storms hit our area. As a result of the high winds another section of fencing was wiped out! The series of storms "took out" almost half of the fence in my front yard, this time. I texted him that night about 7:30pm when I got home and seen that. He texted me back, right away. I submitted pictures for the more urgent fencing project (putting the first project on hold). I got a reasonable quote that I was able to afford. I hired him for that big project, too. My point that I wrote this review in more detail is simply stated: I was impressed how he was timely in reply as it establishes to me, that he was flexible on a more "urgent based project" requested of him. That (in my opinion) says a lot about his company and his work ethic, in meeting the client/customer's needs as they change. He had shown a willingness to re-evaluate and work with a new situation, without being hesitant. It also established (in my opinion) he had all the boards and post, that would be perfectly matching up with the rest of the fence on hand supply. This project was a large section that was damaged and down. the type of fence posts and boards I have all the way around a small little "pasture" I have is not what I see as a standard fence. I thought for sure he would need to order more for this. However, again that was not an issue. He was prepared. He came out a few days later and fixed it for me. He matched the fence post for the entire yard to keep it uniform. you can't tell there was any fence damage and what part was down. He cleaned up and removed the damaged fence, supervised the project as well as did it himself with his crew all the way to the end. I wasn't home when he was here. I know all of this because I have cameras around my property and I watched his work from Cameras sitting at my work at my desk! He knew I wasn't home. This should say a lot. He worked the entire time. He had no idea I was "supervising" the project from another location. I wrote these details specifically to vouch for his ability to "change gears" as he must have all those items ready to go on hand (for the most part) so for the clients/customers, as in my case, I didn't have to wait for ordering of any supplies. There was no wait time (other than the rain and wind to stop) for me. He and his crew worked as promised start to finish even when the customer wasn't home, he held to his work ethics! I want others to know, if your considering anyone to do a fence project, please know Edwin's fencing will take time to learn all the details for your job tasks and projects and do a stellar job! And as far as that smaller project originally, I'm hiring him back for that soon, as well. Thank you Edwin's fencing and the crew! You rock!!
