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.

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. 

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.

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.

How do you strengthen a fence gate?

If you think your gate needs reinforcement, hire a fence repair professional in your area. Squaring up a fence gate may require adding corner brackets, installing a cable and turnbuckle, and cinching and tightening the cable to the appropriate tension. All of these repairs, as well as digging a new post hole, require expertise and know-how.

Reviews for Golden fence professionals
Avi S.
They did great work for us, installing a privacy fence for our backyard. Victor was very responsive by phone, and came out to evaluate the property quickly. The fence and gate look great and they offered us a few different options of styles of fencing. We would gladly recommend them to others to complete their fencing projects.

Very quick and responsive. Installed a flex fence bracket product, and this was the only company I could find to do this after consulting quite a few. Fence came out great.

The Denver Fence team did an excellent job replacing our west facing cedar fence plus a 10 foot gate and about a 12 foot fence and gate on the north side of our property. Their bid was not the lowest bid but the quality of the materials including steel post made the bid worth the extra hundred dollars in our wind swept area. The team communicates very well, works hard and exceed the promised high standards with little extras that made the finished product outstanding! And they completed the job in 2 1/2 days!!

I had a 50 year old wooden picket fence removed and a 130 foot long, 6 ft high galvanized steel fence put in. The installers were skilled and professional and the project went smoothly because CM&M owner, Ray Hyatt, had the materials delivered when needed and then hauled off that evening. A big project done well.

We highly recommend Dustin Lewey and Storm Cloak Construction. We hired him to build an 80+ foot custom fence and gate for us. The end result is beautiful and very well constructed. Dustin has an excellent work ethic and is very precise and meticulous regarding his work. We are hoping to have more fencing work done by Dustin In the future and have recommended him to others.

Victor, Juan and crew did a fantastic job moving our fence and repairing a gate. It was a more difficult job that it sounds like as they had to deal with some structural challenges. The job, which involved about 100 ft of fence, was deemed too small by other contractors, but Green Life was willing to take it on, and for a great price! They were timely and did outstanding work, including clean-up. We would definitely use them again, including for larger projects.

I first contacted A+ Fencing around November 9th via Thumbtack. The owner (James Vann) responded within a couple of hours and we arranged for an in-person visit to my house to review the job. My job was a pretty big one consisting of around 450 feet of 8ft privacy fence plus another 75 ft. of split rail including two gates. We agreed to do business on the weekend before Thanksgiving. His team was on site starting Thanksgiving morning and finished by Sunday. The work quality was outstanding and I was shocked at how quickly they got me on the schedule and finished the work. All around it was a first class customer experience and I can tell you, having just spent 16 months building the house, building contractors most definitely do not always provide a first class customer experience. I would highly recommend A+ Fencing to anyone considering a fencing job. From a price perspective, I can only say that the price seemed far to me and was quite a bit lower than a bid I got from another contractor who was highly rated on Thumbtack.

Victor did a fantastic job replacing a fence and gate. He was one of the most professional contractors I’ve ever worked with: detailed contract, invoices, proof of insurance, etc. The craftsmanship was top-notch and he was timely and responsive. Highly recommend!

Rick was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He responded almost immediately to my request and was working on my fence within two days. I could not be happier with the finished product and would highly recommend him for any projects you may have. Will definitely be working with him again.

We had RWG repair a backyard fence that was falling down. Rodney came out for the initial assessment, submitted us a quote as promised & had the job completed five days later. Painless process and high quality of work. We'll be hiring them for additional home/yard work. Highly recommend!

We were very pleased with the shadow fence installation. Seth came out the very day of the request for service to give us a quote. His team started the very next day. All went well. We did lose cable to the house but that was taken care of by a cable technician. We would hire Eagle Eye Services again.

From 1st appt, when Jeff exhibited a degree of creativity and high standards not previously seen from other pros, all the way through to final testing of the project, we were.continually pleased with him. We wanted a fence, pedestrian gate, and a solar-powered driveway gate, and Jeff never flinched at the goals. When issues with hardware arose, he figured out solutions, ordered parts, and finished the install asap. He spent more time than I am sure he wanted to in discussion with the help desk @ Mighty Mule, who acknowledged he found a mistake in their directions. Highly Recommended!

The owner of this business, Peter, came to my house to estimate the job the day after I searched on Thumbtack. He gave me an excellent price quote and started and finished the project the very next week. He did the bulk of the work himself, and it was very clear and obvious that he was very skilled at his work. The resulting finished project was exactly what I wanted and the quality and workmanship first rate. I paid him and thanked him and hired him to re-finish my deck because I was so impressed with his work on my fence. I might have rated more than 5 stars if it were possible. I will post a review on the deck re-finishing when it is completed.

For me it is less about what you do and more about how you handle it. Seth looked my husband in the eye and explained that Eagle Eye Fencing is named after his attention to detail. WHAT A SCAM! We liked him and he had great reviews and hired him to fix 4 of our posts that were leaning. As you can see from the pics, the job was left messy. Seth cracked our boards, had nails hanging out, nails that were too short and did not hold the boards together, tons of gaps, etc. No detail and very sloppy finish. When I reached out to let him know and ask what he can do for us, he never responded. I would find someone more professional and someone that takes a little more pride in their work!
