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.

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.

Fence Without Limits helped us replace our double gate, fence posts and some rotted out fencing. They gave us a fair and reasonable quote and finished the job quickly. They worked with our schedule and timeline. If we have any fencing needs in the future, we would definitely use them again.

Fencing: I will refer to the installer as AB. AB has limited skills, more suitable for small flat yards. He arrived on time for the estimate, we discussed the layout of my land and the options to maximize the fenced in portion of my yard. There’s a slope, and after coming to the conclusion that a retaining wall was outside AB’s skill set, we decided to end the fence approximately 2 feet down the slope in order to maintain some privacy and maximize size and esthetics. On the day of install I had several techs installing various items and systems in my new build and I wasn’t able to pay as much attention as the previous reviews for AB said was needed. I took an opportunity half way through the install to check the progress and noticed that AB had installed the posts all the way at the bottom of the slope in the paths of the rain water and over several muddy channels dug out by rain water. I advised him that this was not what we discussed and that he would need to move the posts. He stated that he had a plan and that it would look fine once done. He finished for the day and once he left I noticed that the crew digging the dirt out for the posts left piles on the lawn. Additionally they carelessly dropped cement all around the yard and seemed to have wasted an entire bag at the edge of my grass. The next day he returned and I told him about the issues. He said he would clean it up and didn’t. When the fence was up the back fence had holes under it as large as 2 feet, the cement was still scattered around and the piles of dirt were still where they were. AB began to ask for his final payment. I stated to him to clean up after himself and asked him what he was going to do about the holes. He stated they would clean up the dirt and he would return to fix the problems with the holes. Before completion he showed me an issue he ran into with the double fence, where as he couldn’t get it to close due to him not angling the fence properly to flow and clear the ground. He asked if he could “grade” the grass in that area in order to clear the fence. I, thinking he was also a landscaper according to his page, agreed to allow that to be done. On completion, when he was showing me the functions of the fence, I realized that the fence still couldn’t open or close properly and there was chopped up grass and a nasty muddy hole there now. I advised them to shave a few inches off the bottom of the fence, which they hadn’t thought of. My idea worked without creating a gap under the fence. I’m still working to repair the damage to the yard there and after they left I noticed that they did not clean up all the piles on the inside of the fence and they left all the piles on the outside with scattered cement. 2 days later he returned and took some of the boards he appropriated from my project and later them side ways on two of the smaller holes but did not address the larger two. He said he would return with more board 2 days later to fix it. I directed him again to clean up after himself he cleaned up the cement bag that was wasted and one pile of dirt. My neighbor came over and stated he was getting a quote from AB and asked my opinion on hiring him. I am African American and am a big believer in supporting under-utilized and underserved black owned business and entrepreneurs. I stated to my neighbor that AB has limited skills and needs to be closely monitored for the issues previously stated, but he should be able to handle my neighbors yard with minimal difficulty. My neighbors yard is flatter and he was not looking utilize any of his slope. On the day of his installation I was leaving my house to run errands and noticed that AB framed the neighbors fence to utilize my fence as one side, instead of putting up a separate fence to close his off. Additionally he was crossing the property line and including approximately 2x50 feet of my property in the neighbors yard space. No one consulted me and this was also in clear violation of the HOA covenants, which we discussed on my project. AB stated he thought the neighbor discussed and cleared it with me and in the same breath stated that this was how it was commonly done without consulting the person whose fence you are appropriating. I was infuriated at AB, not the neighbor, who I know to be upfront and extremely respectful and polite. The neighbor was not present that day to supervise do you work schedule conflicts. Later I spoke with the neighbor who stated he had no knowledge. The neighbor asked if it would be ok to move my fence to the property line and connect that way as he would pay for the work. I stated that would be ok, but stated I doubt AB would do it, because he was reluctant to fix any mistakes on my job and his reviews stated the exact same thing. A few days later The neighbor stated he spoke to AB and AB made it clear he didn’t want to do that or even close his yard off properly within the property lines. The neighbor stated AB quoted him $2k for one side of fence, approximately 50 feet long. I urge anyone considering AB for a project to consider the difficulty of the project and plan to be present to scrutinize every aspect of the job start to end. I personally would not recommend AB to anyone or encourage anyone to hire him

Hands down Quality Lawn Care Cares exceeded my expectations. I have no skills with installing a privacy fence and what they were able to do in 6 hours would have taken me 3-4 months. I can’t thank them enough for a job well done. They were able to make changes on the fly. They were respectful of time, professional and cleaned up after the project was completed. I know who I will be calling next year for another fence project. Thanks again for a job well done and I wish you continued success for your business.
