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 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 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 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

How much is a redwood fence per foot?

A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

How much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

Hired this program to replace the wooden gate on my fence. The job was complicated given the age and damage to the original fence. He worked through the issues and installed a new gate that received compliments from my neighbor. Loved that the price included the cost of the gate, delivery and installation.

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

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
