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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

Reviews for Littleton fence professionals
Trina B.
Lyons Fence was great to work with. My husband and I had Over 6 fencing companies come out and give us estimates on our fence for our backyard. We have a pretty big backyard and an original fence that has been there since 1961. There was also a lot of shrubs and trees that the fence companies would have to work around also. We had estimates that were way over then what my husband and I could afford. When Steve from Lyons Fence came out he explained in detail the type of wood they would use as well as the type of concrete they would use. He went over throughly with my husband how he would nail in the pickets the type of post and how he would install the gates. He even said he would do the trim on the top of the fence to make it have a good clean finish as well as cut out the shrubs and trees and dispose of them for us. Steve also would provide arches for our gates. We even asked Steve to come out a second time to go over what we discussed the first time for our fence and he showed up and again went over every detail word by word. My husband and I decided to go with Steve and he scheduled us in that following Monday and completed the job in four days. We walked around the fence looked at every detail that Steve and his sons did and was completely satisfied with the work they had done. The gates with the arches were absolutely beautiful and the lining of the fence posts were in perfect straight lines. Steve was right when he told us in the beginnign that he would be the lowest in price but also the best in craftmanship of fence installation. My husband and I truly agree that if we had gone with any other fence company besides Lyons Fence the workmanship and quality of fence would not have been better then the fence that Lyons Fence company installed for us. We recommend Lyons Fence LLC and hope anyone who is looking to get a fence installed will definitely contact them. You won’t regret it. Out of all the fence companies we spoke to, Lyons Fence, LLC was the only company that went above and beyond our expectations to ensure our full satisfaction. Thank you Lyons Fence LLC you did a Great job for us.

Rodney and Casey Gamet were great. They replaced an existing fence which was falling down. They did this in a very professional and friendly manner. The new fence looks great and was completed on time and at a good price. I liked the work so well, that I asked them to replace a second fence, which they did the next day. I will recommend RWG to anyone I know who needs fencing installed and I will definitely use this company again if the need arises. Great job, guys!!!

Out fence turned out beautiful. They used screws in the rails instead of nails which will make that fence last longer. If it wasn’t for this crazy May weather they would have finished earlier than anticipated.

This business and owners customer service go above and beyond just installing a fence. I made the call. Seth came right out that night and went to work. Eagle Eye's quality of wood, to alignment of fence posts and even Seth's attention to where he should redepost the dirt really impressed me and my family. This fencing business is top notch and I highly recommend them. Krista H. 😎

Clay Beeson, the owner of Arbor City did a long fence for me. The fence turned out better than I expected. It is solid and attractive. The round wooden posts used look rustic and fit in well with the mountain environment. I recommend Clay for any similar project.

A+ Replaced a 6 Ft privacy fence around my property and of 3 neighbors. Dealing with a group like that can get hairy with communication, bidding and final pricing for each family. A+ did it well, professionally, responsively, and 500 feet of fence was removed quickly and replaced and looks great!

Very nice company, good communication, fair price. When it came to the fence, it feels like some corners were cut. Fence doesn't go all the way to the ground so I had to spend time afterwards putting boards down to keep rocks and mulch from spilling into neighbors lawn. Too much focus was on the slope of the fence as opposed to the slope of the ground and then spending time to trim to that. The post do not go all the way to the top rail and although it is not required to, from an aesthetics standpoint, it does not look good.

Rodney and his two sons completed my fence project perfectly and then some. There were no delays or problems of any kind. They were here and completed the job in two days. The fence looks great and I would hire Rodney and his crew anytime. I highly recommend this company highly. They're pro's all the way.
