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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a pro to build a fence?

Assuming that the fence professional you hire is good, it is generally worth it to hire someone to install a fence for you. Pros have the tools and team to build a fence correctly, on budget and on time. The job can take several days, even for those with light construction experience. Pros can also help take care of any permits and zoning issues that your area may require. Finally, an experienced pro knows how to spot potential problems down the road, saving you money on expensive repairs.

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.

The owner was willing to work closely with me which allowed me to afford a fence that I wanted. The workers were responsive to my particular wants and needs. Big Jerry's Fencing Owner (Robert) of the Tampa, Florida location is a very easy person to work with. I like my fence.

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

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.
