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.

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.

Rafael and co. were fantastic. They went above and beyond to build a gate and fence that exceeded expectation. I'll be using them again on various other upcoming fencing projects!

Jerry is nothing short of fantastic! He and I met and discussed a large horizontal fence install. Not only did he deliver the design I had hoped for, he was thorough enough to see some of the areas of the fence that would have to be slightly modified because of slope and angle, and was able to speak to me about them so I understood the nuisances not apparent in my simple design idea. He handled all material purchases, he created exactly the fence he said he would, and was a gentleman to work with. I'm already looking for more projects for him.

I hired this contractor for my vinyl fence project. Jerry was polite, and responsive. He gave me a fair price and stuck to it. He showed up on time , worked diligently and cleaned up well after the job. I'm happy with the result and i would hire him again.

Artistic Solutions came to my house promptly and provided the best bid. They started the project quickly, finished quickly, cleaned up the work site and did everything they said they would do without any hassles. I would use them again and I recommend them to anyone needing a fence constructed.

I cannot say enough about how punctual these guys are. I received a phone call almost immediately after sending my first project inquiry in, they were out to check the property the next day on a Friday, and construction took place on the following Tuesday. They went over every option in construction cost with me, several design plans, and were there with materials and ready to work at 7:30am. All in all, their rates were a tiny bit more than some other quotes I got (5%), but they were on-site sooner than I got return emails from some of the others. The hardware used was high quality, and won't cause streaking later. They cleaned up everything quickly. When issues presented themselves - a buried concrete slab and a 1 ¼" water pipe that went unnoticed during a prior inspection and was damaged during construction - they were quick and well-equipped to make it right. For 23 linear feet of fence and three gates, they were done in about 8 hours, and we couldn't be happier with the results. After going without a fence for three years, these guys were in and out from concept to completion in just under a week. Highly highly recommend. (The last two photos are after sanding and staining.)
