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.

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 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.

Mr Dave Cameron is a true professional. He was prompt for our initial meeting and very knowledgeable about the types of fences I inquired about. He also showed up promptly on the 4th of july to install my fence. Mr Cameron and his associate worked through the day on a major holiday in the hot sun to put up my beautiful fence. I am more than pleased. I was still worth it.

I had Dave replace ~100' of fence and two gates after hurricane Irma blew down a few sections. Dave was great to work with–he's a really nice guy, and answered all of my questions! He was very prompt, responsive, and punctual from the very beginning. The fence is beautiful and strong. He did everything to code and used good materials. Dave also welded the metal gate frames, and added more posts to my existing (very old) fence to keep it from sagging. He also kept the site clean, and made sure there weren't any openings left in the fence at the end of the day. I highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again.

First sorry for the late response! Brian was very professional, and on time and kept in constant communication, something rare in today's world! We thought all we needed was a panel fixed on the fence, but turns out about several panels were warped, and the fence was leaning due to some of the posts not having cement, from the previous individual we hired to add our fence. Brian did an amazing job! I have never heard of thumbtack before, and I plan on using this site for all the work we still need around our home. Brian thank you so much! The Castanos!

I cannot emphasize enough my level of satisfaction with Handyman Thomas' work. Out of five different quotes we received for our fence repair, Thomas' was the fairest. He arrived on time, removed the remains of our old fence and built a new one of incredible quality in a remarkably short period of time. He was professional, thorough and efficient. Stop searching and just hire Thomas. You will not be disappointed.

We hired Frank and his crew to come replace our old wire fence and put up two side wood fence panels. Frank gave us the best price, offered to acquire the permit for us, and finished the project very quickly! He first quoted that the project would take 3 days, but he did it in 2 days and we couldn't be happier! Very nice guy, has a friendly hard-working crew, and we would definitely recommend his services. Our neighbors were so impressed they asked us for his information. We are happy to have a fence now so our dog can run around freely. Thank you! -Dave

I'm very impressed with Nedilson Moraes fence. We've had a lot of work done in our home this year because of problems. Nedilson solved one of our big problems (one of our pups escaping under the fence in various places) and it's secure now and looks great. He was punctual, professional and very responsive. Even though he doesn't speak English, it wasn't an issue. His energy and spirit is lovely, and the price was good.

Nedilson and his team exceeded my expectations from their professionalism to their craftsmanship. They did everything for my project exactly to code and finished in a day. I had them extend my existing fence by 54' with that linear footage including replacing a 4' gate and adding an 8' gate to the newly extended fence. My family and I can now make full use of our back yard and it looks beautiful. Thank you so much! I would hire you again and highly recommend Nedilson and his team.
