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.

I am exceptionally happy with the quality of the fence. I am also grateful for Gifford for having such wonderful dog loving fence builders who were so kind to my special needs rescue dogs. Both of the fence builders got down on the ground to greet my fraidy cat rescue dogs. They were both rescued from abusive situations and are afraid of people. The fence builders were so incredibly intuitively kind to my dogs. I will always be grateful to James and Ramon who built my fence and who were so kind and gentle to my dogs. It was a delight to have them at our house while they were working. Our fence looks better cosmetically and is better built than any others in the neighborhood. Gifford was very honest and reliable. I highly recommend them. I bought the fence for my dogs and they love the fence and they love the guys who built the fence. Thanks Gifford! :)

We recently purchased a home that did not have a fence. We called Gifford Fence and another company to obtain a quote. Gifford Fence was slightly lower in price and after reading some reviews we decided to go with them. We had a pretty large backyard and we could not be happier with how it turned out. Jerry and his crew were professional and they did a wonderful job. We got a white vinyl fence and we are delighted. We would definitely recommend Gifford to anyone who needs a fence.

Tony replaced 6 panels of fence. The old fence was built with individual boards and not panels, so it was a lot of work to take out the old fence. He did a great job and went above and beyond and did some extra work to improve the gate as well.

I interviewed and got written estimates from 5 local fencing contractors before finally selecting Jay-Mar Fencing. Their work is now complete, and I highly recommend Jay-Mar to anyone in need of a fence installation and/or repair. Their customer service, timeliness, product knowledge, attention to detail, and craftsmanship are all impeccable! In addition, their price was the lowest of the 5 companies I contacted. All of these attributes contribute to only one conclusion; Jay-Mar Fencing is an exemplary company! Thank you, Thumbtack, and thank you Toni, Brandon, and Chris for your outstanding work!! Rob L.

We hired Jay-Mar fencing to do a black chain link fence in our front yard with a roll gate, to keep the kids and animals safe. We just bought the house a few months ago and were very eager to get it done. Brandon and Toni were quick to get me an estimate and within the week were out to do the fence. Very fast and friendly service. Would definitely recommend!

I made the right choice with this company. Toni and Brandon are a husband and wife team that own and operate "Jay-Mar Fencing" and they did a wonderful job with my fence. I have a wolf that is able to jump over my 6 foot stockade fence from a stand still so Brandon told me about the 8 foot stockade fence he carries so I went for it. I'm glad I did because now my wolf can only jump head high to the top of the fence. I feel much safer leaving him in the back yard to let him do his thing. Thank you Toni and Brandon for the wonderful job you did. My wolf Harley really liked Toni, he's a real ladies man! Thanks again guy's. Pete.

Nick and Alex did a phenomenal job installing my fence. Never seen such good work. They were a joy to speak to and explained every bit of the process and made sure everything was leveled and that I was 100% satisfied with the fence. I’m so happy I hired them for the job.

We contacted Central Florida Home Improvement for some Fencing and Gate installation. They were the only contractor that would consider less than 50’-0” of fencing. Which worked out great since my neighbors on bot sides of our house already had fencing, we just need to put in a few sections of fence and a couple of gates. The guys from CFHI were great communicators, they sent us an estimate based on pictures of the proposed work areas on the same day, set a schedule for later in the week and they completed their work right on schedule. Payments selection was provided through many different options, so the entire experience was perfect. My neighbors were impressed and they asked for their contact information.
