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.

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.

Carlos helped me fix my fence on short notice. He definitely understood the structural problems and helped me reclaim some of the older fence boards to keep cost down. Very reasonable price for the amount of work he did. I will use him again on other projects.

We are so pleased that we hired Country Boy Construction to build our fence. Our new 7ft tall redwood fence is gorgeous, all thanks to Christian and his crew! From our very first meeting when he came to do the estimate, he was courteous, professional, and I could tell that he cared about doing a good job. Not only was his bid very competitive, but the quality of fence that he proposed was far superior to the other estimates I received, even those who wanted to charge more. He noticed things about current fence and yard issues that others completely overlooked. He communicated effectively, and I always knew the status of our project. Christian was also extremely flexible and patient, and when our neighbor was overly picky and even made a few last minute changes to the fence design plans, he handled it with ease. The entire project took 2 days to remove and replace a 65 foot long fence, as well as install a new gate. All construction debris was removed...you could say he even took care to leave the site cleaner than he found it. Thanks again, Christian!

Tim/Daniel and the crew were awesome! They were really friendly, took precaution for COVID, and were hard working and solution oriented. We needed an overhaul on our fence and wow did we get it! They completed the project in 3 days despite hot summer temps (sorry guys hope you enjoyed the pizza and Gatorade!). Before and after photos included. We had some issues with tree roots/tree being too close on an extended part of fence and grading because the land around the property is very hilly so we had to come up with solution so the dogs on either side of the yard wouldn’t be able to get through. When we had changes or requests or ran into a problem, they addressed whatever it was and told us if it was or wasn’t possible and they came up with great solutions if it wasn’t. When the project was done we realized there was an error in the invoice because not as much fence had been built due to tree roots so we brought it to Tim’s attention and he immediately investigated, measured the fence again and recalculated and corrected the error in the invoice. We appreciated the integrity immensely because while we needed to get the fence done, doing these projects are costly so it’s nice to save money anywhere. Even though we made some concessions in our vision it turned out even better than we expected! Beautiful job! I would definitely recommend them to a friend - and actually did already to one of my friends who needs a new fence! We also are going through a refi and did well on the appraisal in part due to the fence so big thanks to you and your crew, Tim!

Andy was very quick to respond to my request for an estimate on fence repairs. He was professional, courteous and helpful throughout our correspondence and first meeting clarifying with me the specifics and timing of the work to be performed. He showed me great patience answering all of my questions and assured me the work would be done to my satisfaction. Once the details were agreed upon, he scheduled the work for the very next day! Andy and his dad arrived exactly when he said they would and installed my new fence sections quickly and efficiently. The fence looks awesome! I am extremely happy with the service they provided. They did a high quality job at a very competitive price. They were a pleasure to work with. I will definitely have them come back to do more fence work. I highly recommend Above All Services. The before and after photos really show the great work they did.
