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.

Jon did a great job. He was easy to contact, came out and gave us a fair estimate to build our fence. New fence looks great. Will definitely be contacting him to do the rest of the fence when are ready.

Hired Mr. Hutto to repair a downed wooden fence and gate. Ended up having him remove a section of the fence and a gate, recreate a new fence wall with metal reinforced gate, and also repair the downed section of the fence. He was timely in responding to my requests and updated me with time and pricing info as we discussed different project options. He ended up fitting me in over the next two days. He and his crew did quality work. The fence is sturdy as new, the new section of fence is clean and straight, and the gate is very smooth. Pricing was honest and reasonable. Will definitely be hiring Adam's Painting and Repairs for future projects.

Jon and his crew did an excellent job in putting up three sections of fence and two gates. Fence and gates were custom made to fit the space, height, and dimensional requirements. Shadowbox design with a 5/4 board cap. Removed old fence and cleanup afterward was great. Highly recommend. Thanks Jon!

Jon and his crew installed a shadow box fence about 267 sq ft. They did an excellent job and my wife was happy with the fence. Jon always kept me informed of the work progress and the price was fair.

Adam and his worker did a good job fixing my fence after someone drove into a section of it. They even made sure to add some extra bracing to help prevent future leaning. Making the fence sturdier and possibly lasting a lot longer now.

We were thrilled with the customer service, quality, workmanship and more than happy with the final fencing project. Jon and crew patiently waited for the tree guy to finish but always kept in touch. My family truly appreciates the fenced in backyard for Peter and his humans. I found Jon for my sister's remodel so wasn't there for everything but the Army was very happy with the job done by the Marines.

Jon was very professional from day one; fully itemized quote proposal, prompt arrival for our appointment, etc. Additionally, the work performed was to a very high standard and I am VERY pleased with my fence. I had a 6-ft privacy fence installed around a total perimeter of approximately 270ft, and my special requests (such as having the fence line up with the house so no gaps were visible) were easily taken care of and I met with no objection from Jon, nor Robert (the gentleman who works with him). The job was delayed by an incessant stretch of rain here in the Augusta area, but Jon made sure to come out on all days when work could be done and also communicated with me when and why he couldn't be there on other days. The job was performed quickly and to a high degree of quality. I would recommend Jon and HJ Fence & Deck to anybody I know!

I highly recommend Jon, he built us an 8 ft. fence that turned out beautiful and sturdy. He went the extra mile to ensure that was exactly what I wanted and even threw in a few extras. Jon and his assistant were direct, honest and easy to talk to & did exactly what they said they were going to do on time & professionally. And then some. Jon and David are two of the nicest guys I've met in decades and I consider them my friends. I will definitely hire them again for future work. If you want it done right these are the guys you want to build your fence. ~Jerry

CSRA Landscape and Design is an outstanding company to work with! They are so efficient and courteous and I am so glad we’re doing business with them. They’ve even agreed to help with our “Off the Chain Furbaby Style” project that provides very affordable preowned Chainlink fencing to animal rescuers all over the CSRA and beyond. Already we’ve provided kennels at up to 75 % less than new for 19 FDIC’s and counting! Thanks CSRALandscape and Design! You’re awesome!

Jon was very professional and courteous. Response time was great and the project was completed very quickly. One hiccup occurred early on in the project with a misunderstanding on the property line and because I am the homeowner/landlord mandating the property from out of state he was very efficient in fixing the problem. What a great help to me. The fence looks great and pricing was very reasonable. He even gives a military discount. I would definitely hire again in the future if I ever need him.

I had a partial fence installed and two large gates around my backyard. This agency was able to accommodate my request in a short time and completed the work in the time forecasted with efficiency and precision. Jon Pike came to measure my yard and brought a folder with pictures of previous work, AND had evidence of his license and insurance. Mr. Pike was knowledgeable about his craft and did an excellent job explaining the process to me as a layman. Mr. Pike and his associates were professional and friendly, which was highly appreciated.

I contacted Mr. Daniel Padgette through thumbtack. He in return called after I left my number and I told him what I needed. He went out to look at the property, to see what was needed to get the job done. After evaluating the job, he called and told me what he could do and how much. I was so impress with his professional skills I was very please. I like the different ways he gave me the options of what could be done to the fence. If I ever need anything done in the future, I will call Daniel. He was such a blessing to us. Very trustworthy and humble. Thank You Daniel Padgette. Thank you Thumbtack
