I had a 15 year-old custom wood fence that had rotted posts and the sections needed repair work done to them. The fence is over 250ft long with a couple of gates. Alex's Fence quoted a reasonable price to replace all the fence posts, add new concrete, repair the sections and haul away the old wood. They were very responsive and got the work done quickly with a minimum of disruption. They did good quality work and I would highly recommend them.

Chano and his team installed new laminate floors throughout our home, painted all our trim and installed new doors. He even fixed an odd door frame in our master bath, which icluded building out the wall a bit and installing new frame. It was all quite a process and took us out of the home for a good two weeks or so, but in all fairness, it was a big job. The workmanship and attention to detail was top notch, and if there was ever anything I didn't quite like or wanted fixed, there were no questions or pushback. Chano and his team really want their customers to be satisfied with the end results, and we are very much!! We even ended up having to rebuild the stairs because carpeting had really damaged the wood, and although it cost us a bit more, the results were great! He really worked with us on many levels, including price and he always offered fair opinions on construction and where to spend money or where we could save. A lot of contractors run pretty shady and you never know who you can trust, so I'm very happy we found A Plus Decorating, because we never had to worry. I highly recommend Chano and his team and will definitely use them in the future!

These guys are great. We are so happy we found them after 3 years of sub-standard lawncare for our condo. We will be using Juan and his team for as long as we are in the building. They are highly recommended and do fantastic work. Good value too.

Kyle communicated in a very timely manner. All issues were discussed and agreed upon before work started. Workers showed up when they said they would, and cleaned up every day. Result was a gorgeous rebuild of a retaining wall, and a perfect privacy screen along back fence. Highly recommend

Hello, I recently hired this company to do some work on galvanized fence , and wroughtiron fence . I was satisfied with the work which was done entirely outdoors at freezing temperatures. It took longer than expected and was delayed by the first snow of the season in December in Chicago (about 4 inches) yet it was brought into completion as soon as possible under the circumstances. Robert is reliable, responsible, trustworthy And knows what he was doing. I will certainly hire him again Anna

Jacob and Dave did a phneomal job helping me move from one studio to another. They were responsive and transparent during the reservation process and arrived on time the day of. I felt awful that they had to deal with some unforeseen problems (my building double booked moves causing them to move their U-Haul a few different times.) They kept their cool and never got frustrated (unlike me!) They were efficient and properly secured everything for the move, a lot of which was glass, and everything was safe. Thank you both. I would hire you again in a a heartbeat!

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.

Needed to replace a old chain link fence on my property. While Google-ing, I ran across this site and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I took the plunge and gave Mr. Lee Johnson my business. He was courteous, punctual and efficient. I can't leave out fast. I will be using him to complete my yard in the future and I will certainly tell my friends/family about his great work. He cleaned up and hauled away the old fence for me. Thank you Thumbtack for having this site and thank you Lee for all of your great work. P.S. my neighbor approached him while he was completing my fence and seen that he was doing a great job and wanted to use him herself.

Bardos did a huge project for us - we extended our paver patio and also put a 5 foot high, 60 foot long retaining wall at the back of our property. The retaining wall was set ten feet from the existing rail road tie wall- he removed that and then filled the entire 60 foot x 10 foot area with soil to 5 feet high. We have a fence in the back so he moved all the stone and soil by wheelbarrow from the front yard and then through a gate. I am extremely impressed with not only the quality of work, but his professionalism and work ethic. It turned out better than I could have imagined, I am so impressed! You can tell he takes pride in his work and a job well done. He never had a problem with changes or add-ons that we requested (he moved and modified an existing sump pump pipe, cut down a tree, etc). Not only that, he was reasonably priced. I highly recommend him for any landscaping or hardscaping job!

I had 15 fence post that needed to be replaced. Steve did an amazing job. He pointed out that the fence itself was in good shape and could be reused with the new posts. I was happy to hear that cost saving news. My fence looks fantastic. Steve was very responsive when I reached out to him. I would highly recommend hiring Steve for any of your projects. As a matter of fact I have already scheduled him on another project. I look forward to another job well done.

Exceptional people to do business with. I plan to hire them again for future projects and highly recommend Precision Remodeling. I have had both neighbors and friends mention the nice work we had done (deck remodeling and expansion) which is a reflection of their craftsmanship. Even the Building Dept. at City Hall commented on how organized and prepared Precision Remodeling was in filing required plans and having their construction work accomplished "pass" every inspection stage during the process. Happy I hired them.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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 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.
