Walt did a very good job taking down our old fence and putting up the new one. Very professional and good value. Our neighbor saw him working and will probably ask him to put up his fence. Highly recommend.

Jeff put up 700 feet of fencing and made gates to allow access to the larger fenced area. He did a better than excellent job. The objective of the fence was to ensure our dog would not be able to get out. He spent extra time to make sure the job was done to our satisfaction. He is very particular and wants to make sure the job is done right. We highly recommend his him.

Brass Lawn Care fixed 10 posts on my backyard fence. They got everything done pretty quickly in one day, and they had by far the best price out of 5 other quotes. We've paid them by check and at this point in time, I am just waiting for the receipt which is to be emailed to me.

This was a great experience! We were contacted within 10 minutes of the inquiry. He came by later that day and gave us a quote *(he was nice and professional) . We then scheduled the work (replacing 8 fence posts) to be completed two days later. Me and my fiance both left early for work (the day the Work was to be done) and were surprised with texts with pics of the completed work. I would definitely recommend this company! They are professional and can truly be trusted for quality work.

Fence was installed in just one day which was great as working around the copious amounts of rain made scheduling difficult. It looks great, there were no issues with design. Overall a really good job done quickly.

I hired Stateline Deck & Fence to build a small (8"x12") deck. I am extremely pleased and I highly recommend them. They were easy to work with and the value of the finished deck far exceeds my expectations for the price. My background is in computers, so carpentry is not something I know a lot about. A couple of years ago, I tried using a big box retailer to subcontract a deck and it was a total disaster. They sent unqualified people and it was such a nightmare that I waited over a year before taking a different approach and hiring a carpenter myself. Although it was a miserable experience, I sure learned a lot. I learned to make sure that the person in charge is educated and qualified to do the work. When I met William Cunningham, I had no doubts that he was the right man for the job. He answered all my questions and concerns clearly and left me feeling like I could depend on him to get the job done right. I have many friends and family that are contractors, and I have great respect for their work ethic, but I also value education very highly. Being able to hire a carpenter with a college degree gave me even more confidence that this would be a completely different experience than what I had to deal with using the national big box company. Once construction began, William was onsite himself for the entirety of the project. Along with one other workman, he completed the deck in only a couple of days and made sure to let me know that he guaranteed his work. They were very polite, clean, and surprisingly quiet. It was very easy for me to work in my home office while they worked outside. It has been over a month since the deck was completed. My wife and I love it and spend most evenings out on it grilling and relaxing. I have received many compliments for the craftsmanship and even have had friends who paid obscene amounts of money for composite decks express envy for my simple little wooden deck escape. I cannot stress enough that this is the company that you want to hire. I plan on using them in the future and I am very grateful to have come across them. Did I mention that they were by far the lowest estimate? Just awesome, thank you again.

I needed to replace an old wooden fence section that was falling apart. It was a project that I was dreading and had put off for too long. Brandon came out and helped me weigh my options and we ultimately landed on a new 5' iron fence. He did an amazing job, we are so happy with the work. I would highly recommend hiring them for and gate needs!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

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.

How much is a redwood fence per foot?

A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

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 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.
