Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

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.

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.

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.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

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.

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

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.

Kevin installed over 156 feet of privacy fence for us. He was a complete professional throughout the entire process. He was on time and walked me through his process, he stuck to the plan and finished well ahead of time. The fence came out beautiful and we couldn't be happier.

David and his crew did an amazing job replacing my entire fence. There were a lot of trees/bushes/random items the previous owners left behind that needed to be taken care of before the replacement/installation could begin and David and his crew did a great job taking care of it. We now have a wonderfully sturdy/secure fence. David’s pricing was great as was his craftsmanship. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to have a fence replaced or a fence added to their yard.

Mike ( one of the owners) was both professional and accommodating. I needed a fence before my Bridal Shower which was in three weeks Mike made sure my fence was installed before my shower. Patriot Lawn Service installed the fence in three days (probably could've did it in two but rain might have slowed them down). He made sure that he informed me of the process every step of the way.. He also worked with my budget and searched for the lowest price for materials which was AWESOME..If you are looking for a company to be professional while getting the work done quickly hire Patriot Lawn Service

These gentlemen did an excellent job installing a new privacy fence because of the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew. The owners of Patriot Lawn Service---Michael and Shawn---were quick to respond to our request for help. The craftsmen were very professional and very proficient. Thank you for a job well done!

We hired Kevin to install our fence for us. It was a long process as we had to wait for approval from our HOA prior to installing the fence but Kevin stuck with us throughout the entire process. He's patient, he listened to our needs, he provided us with his honest opinions and he worked diligently and quickly. He was able to adjust to small tweaks and changes. He's so easy to work with. While others might have declined to work with us due to the issues we dealt with, Kevin remained in contact with us and ensured that we got exactly what we wanted in the end. I'm truly appreciative and I'm glad to say that throughout this process, we didn't just find ourselves a new handyman, but also a new friend. Hire Kevin for your next job!! You won't regret it!

Scott and his team did an excellent job on our privacy fence install. He responded almost immediately to my request, came out at a time that was convenient for me to survey the job, gave me an exact quote and timeline for the work, and stuck to it. During the project the weather was not kind - Scott and his team worked in the pouring rain for two days to complete the job. I couldn't be happier with the result, and will definitely use Scott's services in the future. Thanks, Scott!

First of all I did months and months of research, I needed white vinyl privacy fence installed... I have a nice size yard, so the job was costly, therefore I wanted to hire the best company, business, establishment for the job.... After searching, calling, reading reviews, etc... I grew frustrated... I filled out a home improvement questionnaire about my fence... I was directed to Tony and Son's... I spoke with him, explain the job, he gave me a good price... ( The attention to detail, and extra depth on my post + the additional 2\4 in each post wasn't offered by any other company) ... I was still skeptical... To make it short, the job was completed nicely, however they did leave out a sprinkler head, but I was compensated for the cost of having it moved... I'm grateful for Steven, Diego, Brice, Tony, and the boss the Mrs... Thank you for a job well done...

From finding these guys on Thumbtack to the very end of service they were phenomenal. Within 24-hours, Steven came out did an estimate, listened to my concerns and previous bad experience with a company, and got back with me in a couple hours. He was willing to come out on a Saturday to do an estimate to accommodate my schedule. Sunday, he came out again with a contract and a plan for work that needed to be completed prior to the fence installation. Steven scheduled that which was completed Monday. Tuesday the fence was started and completed. The work looks great, the area was kept clean, when they finished there was no trash to be picked up, and they explained everything that was done. There are not enough words to thank this company for the quick service they performed from saving my back trying to do the work myself, to accommodating my schedule, and to listen to me about the concerns for my dog's safety. Everything was scheduled around my availability and non-traditional schedule. This is a top-notch company. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.

On March 17th, 2017, I was about to leave for 6 months for Australia and the week before I was due to leave my puppy discovered how to jump the fence behind our garage. We needed to get gates installed as a matter of urgency to block off the side and back of the garage so she couldnt get back there because she was going to be in the yard unsupervised a lot more once I left. We called several fencing companies and were told that to even get an estimate would take several weeks, even then the work wouldnt commence until mid-april. In desperation on March 15th I tried Thumbtack and Tony & Son's responded with 2 minutes..less than 10 minutes later we had an appointment scheduled for that evening and a promise that he would rearrange his jobs to get my job completed by Friday. Tony was unable to meet me that night by his partner Steve showed up and they started work on Thursday. They didn't finish the job by Friday as promised - but only because they had to do more than originally realized - the job was finished on Saturday. I couldn't be happier with a company, they were professional, honest, competent and most of all compassionate. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be using them again!!! I can't thank Tony, Steve and his crew enough for going above and beyond to ensure that our job was taken on and completed so that I could leave and know that my baby was going to be safe. They are awesome guys all round and the gates are perfect. I'd give you 10 stars if I could!! Jeni
