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.

Did an amazing job repairing a broken fence. Walter quoted me with pictures acurately and with a fair price. Worked out the details at 8pm at night due to a last minute break that needed a quick repair. Best part he was able to work out next day fence repair. Got all the work completed in the window given and took all the leftover. Was trustworth and dependable and called and communicated all the way through. Best part was no interruptions while i was at work and a clean and easy payment option. Will do business with again. Thanks!

Walter installed about 100' of new privacy fence for me. Couldn't be happier. Very friendly, professional and listened to what I was looking for. I am looking forward to working with Walter on future projects soon. I highly recommend him.

I needed to replace a section of a 6' vinyl fence that had been destroyed by a tree limb. Walter was very responsive particularly because he was willing to do the work during the week of Thanksgiving. He completed the work as expected and in a very professional manner.

We required repair of a vinyl fence that had been knocked over by wind. Anthony showed great initiative by offering to do the work on the same day that it was posted even though we requested it should be done later. Frankly, we didn't expect anyone to be available right away. In any case, he showed up in time, was very professional and performed very well. We are considering having him do additional work that is needed.

I requested a quote for repairs to a fence that had been damaged a few months earlier when a tree fell on it. Brian responded almost immediately with a preliminary quote and set up a time to come to the property for a visual inspection. He did a good job keeping me up to date on when the special-order materials were due to arrive and letting me know when my job would be done. He was prompt, helpful in his suggestions, friendly and true to his word. This small job was dismissed by several contractors previously – they would come to inspect the property and waste my time because I would never hear from them again after they left promising they would be back with a quote. Small business owners these days seem to have their pick of jobs because most treat homeowners with small jobs as if we’re bothering them. I have a more significant project I would like done in the next year or so and have now asked Brian for a quote on that. It’s as if most of them don’t realize small jobs done well lead to customer loyalty and a good working relationship the homeowner is happy to continue with for years to come. I would recommend Fratturo Home Remodeling without reservation.
