Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best fence professional in Atlanta?

To hire the best fence professional in Atlanta, perform an online search for pros in the area. Using an online service streamlines the selection process by providing you with a list of top-rated contractors. Compare these pros’ ratings and customer reviews, and look for photos of fences uploaded by clients. This lets you gauge the quality of the contractors' work. 

Georgia regulates contractors through the State Construction Industry Licensing Board, so make sure the fencing pro you choose can present a valid license. Finally, compare estimates and quotes from several fencing contractors in Atlanta before making a decision on who to hire.

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.

I love my new fence!!! The L.K Team did great work! They removed my old fence and built a much sturdier, quality and aesthetically pleasing fence. They also gave me a wider gate. The team are true experts of their craft! I’m already getting complements from my neighbors. These guys are the real deal. I’m overly satisfied.

Leonard was responsive and professional during the quote process. Scheduled the fence install and showed up on time. The fence is sturdy and crafted with precision and care. I didn't take a photo yet but the lines are perfect. Leonard and his crew worked expertly with the odd terrain of the property and some trees and old concrete that were existing. The guys that came to work with Leonard were presentable, well mannered and made sure the the site was cleaned up after completion of the fence. I will hire them again if I need fencing at another property.

Andrew and his team did a wonderful job on my 2-day fence install project! He was easy to communicate with, timely in his responses and his quote was fair and honest. We have other projects we plan on getting Fence Atlanta to complete for us as well. Can't say enough about how much we love our fence!

Great job! They did take a little while to get things scheduled once we had paid the down payment, but our fence is beautiful and we love it! We sent them a picture we found on Pinterest and they made it to our specifications. Luis was the guy who actually built the fence and he was very sure to make sure we were aligned on all major decisions. We have a huge rock in our back yard and they had no problems installing the fence into the rock. They worked fast, once they started, and the fence is perfect! We are very satisfied.

Dee with Georgia Fence Division was the most professional individual I have dealt with in a long time. He restored my faith in creating a project and hiring on Thumbtack. I was so impressed with his work I’m trying to find other fencing projects for him to do and have already recommended him to family and friends. He’s polite, courteous, prompt, a man of honor, and genuine. His handiwork shows he excels in his skills. We can’t stop smiling when looking at our beautiful fence. The fence was destroyed years ago when a drunk driver ran into it making it a public nuisance. Dee restored it and made the ugliest part of it new again. He even went over and above his quote to straighten out other parts of the existing fence so that it was sturdy. The quotes I got for the fence repair was ridiculous. Just for the 25 feet hole in the structure was grossly more than what Georgia Fence Division quote was for repair of the entire fence. And the quotes that I thought I could work with, the companies were hard to reach back to start the project. Georgia Fence Division quote was so reasonable. I couldn’t believe the 6 quotes before them. Dee told me he was coming at 9am to start the project, but got to my home at 8:30am and without bothering me or interrupting my day begun prepping for the repair. He also made it very convenient to pay him. I can’t say enough about how please I am with the results.

We are so pleased when Leonard’s fencing work but more so extremely impressed with his professionalism and care for his work. He came out to the house on multiple occasions (free of charge) to answer additional questions we had about the proposed project. He was diligent in his work and so thoughtful about our specific needs. When we add on to our fence in another year, we will definitely be using LK FENCING!

Doug was very professional and was able to start immediately and complete within a few days. The fence looks amazing and not only contains my dogs, but also Mr. Kitty. I'm sure would-be thieves will think twice before trying to scale this fence to get in and out as well.
