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.

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 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.

Dan & his team were very professional from bid to completion. They demo'd & hauled away the 75' old fence, and built the new fence as we wanted in 1 day. Excellent service & product.

Unfortunately I never got my fence fixed. After two weeks of being put on hold and basically no communication from him as to when he was going to fix my fence, I fired him.

Ken was absolutely awesome. Given the circumstances of a lumber shortage of course, he got the job done as fast as he could. He spent days looking for wood to get my fence done. He even dealt with my neighbors requests for the fence (who I might add isn't paying for the fence). Bless Ken's heart for dealing with my neighbor with such good spirits. I would recommend Ken to anyone looking to get their fence replaced. I still need more replaced and I will be calling him again soon.

Elliott installed about 60 ft of fence in about a days work, was very communicative, and gave a very fair price. He also installed a door for me and hauled away the old fence and other items. Would 100% recommend.

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.

Fence came down in rainstorm in Natomas. Came by to give an estimate on repair and work was all done by the following week. I wasn’t even here that day. By the time I got home, it was all done. Great work, would definitely hire again the next time fence goes down.

Elliot Haag was quick to respond to my search for a craftsman to repair 40 feet of fence. He was on time for the appointment to evaluate what was needed. He stayed in close communication about his timeline for work and for acquiring quality materials. He is very pleasant to work with and willingly answered all my questions. He showed up on time, every time. He and his teammate, Adam, did an excellent job of replacing my fence, using steel posts and extra horizontal support. This fence will withstand anything the weather can throw at it. Great job!

Property Care provided a detailed evaluation and recommendation of the work required for repair of my fence. They reviewed detailed options with me. They were actually able to start the job a day early and did an excellent job in completion of the project and clean up afterwards. They were friendly, courteous and professional. They were also able to complete a second project for me once the fence repair was completed.

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!

They did a great job on the fence. It was done in the time frame that we wanted, even with scheduling last minute. They were very responsive from the beginning.

He was quick to respond and prompt when giving us a quote and was extremely accommodating to our situation since our front fence seemed to have been kicked in. He temporarily fixed it so we can feel secure and allow our dog to go out into the backyard. The fence looks amazing and feels so much sturdier than our previous one. Worth the money.
