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 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.

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!

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!
