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.

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. 

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.

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.

Kevin knows fencing. That said, everything he stated was right and true. I called him after the fence was up, about a perceived issue. Again, he was right about the gate being true. It didn’t quite look plumb to me. After he came to fix the issue, he measured it. It was merely an optical illusion. Bottom line: want a fence that’s put together to stay together, hire Kevin. I’m having McGuire Fence complete my backyard 6 foot fencing job. Old, yucky wooden fence/chain link section out, new vinyl in.

I have to break this review into multiple parts. Timeliness: 2 out of 5- if you need a fence quickly, do not choose this company. They let you know this upfront but it was further delayed than expected. I had to schedule three seperate dates to finish the project. The first date I was not notified until after the scheduled time that they would not be able install the fence that day. The second date the workers started but they had equipment malfunction and had no backup to continue the job. This required a third date that they were able to complete the fence on. Communication- 3 out of 5: As I have stated, they did not notify me until after the scheduled time that they would have to reschedule. Furthermore, they clearly had communication issues between teams as I would talk to multiple people that did not have the latest information on the project. This caused a few major communication errors on their part and I had to schedule three consecutive days for them to complete the project. I also had to call into the office multiple times to fix errors whether it be scheduling, pricing or the latest information Quality: 5 out f 5- this is where family fence gets their great reputation and I have to agree with the quality of the fence. It's hard to see how they could improve the product and I am very pleased Those that work at family fence are very nice and the fence installers were great. Every issue I pointed out was a business process that could easily be fixed. All in all, it was a frustrating process that left us with a great fence. If you have time to wait and understand their may be errors in the process, in the end, you will have a great fence. If you need a fence sooner rather than later, consider all of your options

Earth Friendly was one of the few to respond to my request for an on-site quote for a new privacy fence during this pandemic. The quote was very reasonable and they did a great job. They arrived on time and worked conscientiously. The fence looks amazing and they cleaned up after themselves and carried away all the debris.

The estimator showed up on time as promised, was very helpful, even to the point of contacting another company to see if I could get a farm fence (they don't do those). After comparing prices I decided to go with a standard chain link. Due to rain the original install date had to be changed. They called and arranged another date. The morning of installation two young men showed up when they said they would. They removed the old fencing and installed the new in about 4 hours. They then took all the old fencing, posts, etc. with them. I am pleased with the entire process.

The fence itself I didn’t have issues with, but the communication process, lack of attention to detail, and customer service wasn’t really there... they replaced one whole side of my fence and a small section on the opposite side of my house. The main section was left with big gaps underneath so my neighbors dog can now crawl underneath and the mulch that was around my fence line was half assed put back. There was a delay of a day, but no communication was sent to me regarding the delay until I reached out to confirm they were coming. When they came, the didn’t replace the small section on the other side of my house and had to come back a second day. I asked a few times if they could replace the posts to my gate so it matched the new fence (offered to pay extra) and they just ignored my request and never answered.
