"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!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 is a redwood fence per foot?

A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

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.
