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.

Luvins took care of my fence repair. I thought I needed to replace my fence, but after he evaluated he ended up saving me money and repairing what was needed. Great work, will use them again.

Repairs were made on time, the repairs were not noticeable(like the fence was never damaged) and the price was fair.

After a few fence repair companies told me they couldn't start the job for a few weeks I was pleasantly surprised when Rick said he would start and complete the job within the next day or two. When Rick came to give me an estimate I hired him on the spot. He was personable and very reasonable priced. Other companies claimed I needed to replace 1/3 of the fence when Rick only replaced one panel and repaired the rest saving me a lot of money. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone needed a new fence or repair to a damaged fence. He returned my call in a timely manner, he kept his appointment and was punctuality, he was professional and personable, and he was very reasonably priced! Thank you Rick!!!

Rick and his two helpers removed 2 old wooden gates and installed new white vinyl gates with 2 short privacy fences attached. We are thoroughly happy with the job Rick and his helpers accomplished and would highly recommend RNJ Fencing. And, in fact, plan on hiring them again for future projects. Thanks for a job well done!

RNJ Fencing did a spectacular job on my wood and aluminum fencing. I have been around construction my whole life and am very picky when it comes craftsmanship, honesty, integrity and communication. RNJ was easy to deal with, and very efficient in their work. All in all it was pleasurable working with them and I was more than pleased with the end product. I will certainly call Rick for future projects in Delray and beyond.

The property is in an HOA with specific requirements. Broward County Fence has been extremely helpful getting everything documented for the HOA. The work is scheduled for the coming days, I will update the review with photos once completed.

Fenice installation was completed. I am very pleased with the fence and the advice from Rick in the planning process was helpful and right on target for what I had in mind. It was a pleasure working with Rick who was more than accommodating and responsive. Joyce

He allowed an inexperienced guy to repair our fence who knew nothing about it. That would've been OK if he stayed to supervise him & the job. But after an early morning appearance each day, he disappeared for the rest of the day & the part of the fence that was done, was done poorly. His last day on the job he verbally verbally told his man, who was also the tree remover, the same guy who was trying to repair the fence, which trees to cut down. There were 4 palms to be removed. His man got the instructions wrong because nothing was marked as to be removed. As a result a beautiful tree that was not supposed to be removed, was cut down, all because of a lack of supervision. When I asked him how he was going to make up for that tree he responded with "I want the rest of the money now or I'm pulling my men off the job" - he already had more than half the money. I of course said no & he went thru w/his threat & left. A plus is he comes across as a nice guy & we got along well.
