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.

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.

Monty did a great job on our fence. He knew exactly what kind of fence we needed to keep our goats in and the predators out. He worked hard every day until the job was done right!

Dustin and Russel are a pleasure to work with. They helped us realize the fence we had been visualizing in creative ways, and in keeping with our budget. They were a pleasure to have here at the home, and if we ever needed anything else, I would not hesitate to hire them again. Highly recommend, stop looking for other fencing contractors, use Lohi!

Peter replaced six cedar fence posts and one rail. The initial job was started on a Friday, but due to a job backlog he could not finish until the following Wednesday. It did not inconvenience us but we would have preferred a faster completion. Pricing was awesome, and the work done well.

Guadelupe was great! He was very prompt. He was creative and able to work around some of our logistical issues (e.g. putting the fence between existing trees. He worked so diligently and got the project done very quickly despite the freezing cold temperatures. He did a great job!

I set an appointment with Aaron to check out my fence in hopes of getting it repaired. He asked for my address a week prior, which I gave to him. Then he stood me up for our appointment. He never got back to me when I reached out again to see what happened... super professional and a little creepy business practice, bud.

John replied to my request for quote very quickly and communicated promptly throughout the process. He is a very, very honest and good guy. Price cannot be beat. He went above and beyond and made some recommendations for future maintenance. Down to earth, honest, capable, fair and extremely easy to work with. I couldn't recommend him more. Seriously, this guy is the one you want to make your fence good again. David Glow Lafayette, CO

A+ rebuilt part of our fence and replaced a gate, in addition to repairing other parts of the fence. Communication was a bit short from the beginning, though apparently that was due to a family issue. We didn't know until the night before when the work would actually be done. Everyone has the occasional glitch, so I can give them a pass. They arrived for the work bright and early, and the team was friendly. They asked a few questions about what we wanted, and I explained. They did all the work, but there were three major problems. First, the gate was cut off nearly four inches from the ground. The gate was to hold in a potential new puppy, so that was no good. Second, the gate l has some really poor construction details, including nails sticking out. Third, their trash/lumber pile blocked the sidewalk in front of our house, and included bags of dry cement leaking onto the sidewalk and road. Oh, and it was starting to rain. I first called about the cleanup, and they assured me that they would clean up any mess. We weren't comfortable leaving it blocking the sidewalk, so we moved the huge pile into the street. Then I took pictures of the gate, and Jason immediately agreed it was a problem and that he would send someone out to rebuild the gate. The next day the material arrived, and they put it on the lawn. We called and asked if the work was going to be done that day, and they assured us it would be. I told the person on the phone that was important, because we were worried about the lumber killing the grass. No one showed up that day, so again we were out moving lumber. The next morning the team did show up, and they rebuilt the gate brilliantly. One other minor thing that the first team didn't do quite as well as I'd like, though: They replaced a few of the fence pickets, and every one was about a half inch higher than the neighbors. I assume the rest of the board were a bit shorter, or had sunken a bit into the ground, but now the new board stand out from the rest. Not a huge issue, I guess, but still looks wrong to me. So overall I have a great new gate, and they were very responsive to my specific requests, but I would have preferred more frequent communication.

We needed a broken gate fixed on our fence. Hayden and his team were great! Once we were able to establish an initial appointment, (due to my crazy schedule), Hayden had our gate fixed within the week and in a very short time. This was very important since we have a new dog practicing his escape artist routine! Quality of the work was tested a few weeks later during a windstorm. Our old gate, even when it was new, would pop open during any kind of wind. Our new fate held firm! Hayden was true to his word about cost and timeframe. We will definitely use him for future projects.
