Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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 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.

Does adding a fence increase property value?

Fencing may increase the value of your property. However, this depends on what type of fence is installed and the purpose of the fence. For example, a fence may be worth more to a property that needs it to diminish noise coming from a highway. Fences may also be a plus to dog owners who require a backyard fence. 

When deciding whether to install a fence in your yard, consult with your realtor or real estate expert. They can help you prioritize home improvement projects that will add value to your home.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

Is it worth it to hire a pro to build a fence?

Assuming that the fence professional you hire is good, it is generally worth it to hire someone to install a fence for you. Pros have the tools and team to build a fence correctly, on budget and on time. The job can take several days, even for those with light construction experience. Pros can also help take care of any permits and zoning issues that your area may require. Finally, an experienced pro knows how to spot potential problems down the road, saving you money on expensive repairs.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Reviews for Dunedin fence installers

When Florida rains caused Jerry and his crew to get a little behind on a project and they needed to reschedule our's to the next day they were EXCELLENT at communicating their needs and accommodating mine. They stuck to their 'sight unseen' bid although they ended up hitting a lot of roots and I'm sure the job took longer than they had expected. Jerry was responsive when I had questions and gracious when getting payment to him while we were out of town got complicated. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing fence install. I compare the finished product to fences friends have had installed by other contractors and ours looks far straighter, sturdier and permanent. Thank you, Jerry and crew for a job well done!

people normally give vendors/suppliers a high ranking because they did a great job. same here ... but it is not so much because the Family fence company did a "perfect" job and everything went smoothly just as planned, it is actually because the project went quite the contrary, but nevertheless i was very impressed how the staff handled the mistake and hiccups with such professionalism that is rarely seen in such line of work. old saying goes "people shows true color in difficult times". i have to say, if everything goes smoothly with a project, sure i would be pleased and happy. but i would not be as impressed by a scenario where everything did not go smoothly, but the people are willing to work with you, and get it right no matter how many tries it requires. i had an existing fence that was fallling sideways. so i hired Family Fence Company to take the old ones out and put new ones in. it was a straightforward job and the crew sure knew what they were doing with the fence ... they finished the fence very quickly. however, part of my fence is butted against the edge of my pool patio which is made of concrete pavers. for those of you who are familiar with how pacers are installed, you'll know it is individual pavers laid one next to each other tightly on a bed of packed down sand. in order to prevent paver arrangement from moving around, pool company will always put down a concrete border all the way around to secure the structure. since my pool was put in after the fence was built, the border of my patio is literally against the existing the fence. also due to the fact that my lot was naturally slanted toward to the storm drain next to my property, the entire patio was actually built on top of an elevated bed of sand and paver base (it is significantly higher than the ground level of the storm drain area). and the existing fence actually served as a pseudo retaining wall that held everything together. i specifically pointed out this structure to the estimator (Matt) because i sensed this could present a potential challenge when they take the existing posts out. matt told me it was a problem and they could just "work around it". when the crew came, i also specifically told the crew lead (jonathan) that when he puts the new fence back on, the fence must go all the way to the natural ground level of the storm drain (exactly how the old fence was) so the foundation of my patio (which is essentially loose sand) can be contained and secured by the fence .... so the sand/dirt/soil would not just slowly but surely leak out. (and eventually the patio will just collapse!) but for whatever the reason, that specific instruction got completely lost on the crew who nailed the fence together. they went so fast, before i knew it, the entire fence was up and it was installed 8 inches above the ground completely exposing the foundation of my patio. technically, they could take down all the planks, and re-do the 5 8-foot sections (the whole project is much longer than that but these 5 sections are the ones have to be all the way to the ground to hold my foundation in) but that was not a doable solution. long story short, i called the office and talked to daniel who is always the one that picks up the calls, and who is always very patient, and does his best to relay the message for me; then eventually, i talked to greg who is the master scheduler and handles the various crews directly. i explained the situation to him and what i think would be an easy, very economical and solid solution. he immediately understood what i was trying to say (mind you: i am not the best articulate when it comes to describe a "construction" problem") greg immediately told me that he could do and he would dispatch a crew to come back and fix it right after the new year. what i am most impressed is this: it took two more days and two more trips to finally get it fixed because the first time the crew brought the wrong material. and if you ever handled any project like this, you know communication is the key. by the time when a message from me goes through daniel, who paraphrased to the best of his ability to greg (who is really the person that knows about fence installation and such), then greg has to "baby sit" and crew and give them very specific instructions as what to do and how to do it, mis-understanding is almost inevitable. i made so many phone calls to the office and spoke to daniel and greg so many times, not once they lost their patience or tried to brush me off or stonewall me. and i must say, THIS part is the most impressive of all! they are willing to listen and work on the issue with you! and i have hired and dealt with so many suppliers, i cannot say this about too many of them. and for me, one good lesson learned when dealing such project (that may have an impact on your existing structure)? make sure that you have a crystal clear understanding with the person who comes and does the estimate and that you and he are on the same page what the project truely entails. greg was caught by surprise too with this hiccup because in Matt's proposal, no where was it mentioned that the patio's structure will be inevitably compromised when the old posts come out. and no one likes to be surprised. and throughout the project, communicate, and communicate, esp with the right person. in the end, both greg and i agree that it is so much easier that we speak to each other directly as opposed to going through multiple other people when the msg always gets lost or mis-represented. but bottom line is this: this company are people who will work with you to make sure all is done right! and despite all the hiccups, i will use them again! last but not the least, they are also fast (the other company could not get me in their schedule till the end of january) and much cheaper! so, if you need a new fence, call them! i hope this helps!
