Alex is AWESOME!!!!!!!! He is a true professional and did a thorough and high grade job on our fence project. From being on time for the estimate to successfully installing 160+ feet of new wood fence with 30+ posts dug and cemented 36" in the ground, Alex exceed ALL of our expectations with this project. As an added touch, Alex also sent us numerous photos throughout the days he worked on our project to keep us looped in on his progress! Wow - that was so nice and what a great and smart way to keep us in touch with all going on with our important job while we were at work! We fully recommend Alex and his crew!

We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

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

Absolutely fabulous! We had a really great experience working with Master Craft & Design. They remodeled both our guest bathroom and deck in July 2018. Both projects exceeded our expectations!! Ed and his crew showed up on time every day and were very professional and friendly. They treated our house as if it were their own - taking care of the space and cleaning up at the end of every day. They were like family when they were in our home. In fact, we miss having them around! Both projects were finished on time and very close to our original quote. Ed was also very responsive and accommodated all of my requests which was important to me. The bathroom included updating the plumbing, laying new tile in the shower and floor and repairing the drywall. The bathroom is gorgeous and the attention to detail with the tilework was amazing. Josh offered his design suggestions along the way and we were so thankful for that since we had never done a remodel before. Ed and his crew took our small crappy deck and turned it into a true outdoor sanctuary! They reinforced the old frame, replaced all of the deck boards, added a ton of new square footage, and gave us a gorgeous new railing. Every time I walk now outside my heart smiles. We absolutely love our new deck and enjoy spending time out there! We couldn’t be happier with the way both projects turned out. I would highly recommend Master Craft & Design. We will definitely be using them again in the future!

Fence Installation Had to install a 320 ft fence to keep my pets and kids in the yard. Wanted a wood fence that had 2 gates and an extra "bump out "near the garage to enclose a tree that was in the way. Didn't want to have the tree removed because it was a blooming apple tree and would have cost me more to have the tree cut down and stump removed. I saved at least $600 by enclosing the tree and it looks really nice too! Thumbs up for saving the environment! We ran into a drainage problems in a back areas of the yard where it seems "soupy" so Bo suggested a deeper foundation hole for the post and a mix of gravel and sand to drain out excess water. Its been over a month now and with lots of rain. The post and surrounding area has been fine and seems to be draining better then it did before with the porous mix of sand/gravel. Bo, the estimator-manager has been out twice to check the area and called me for any updates of water drainage. I would recommend Steamatic for fence installation, especially if you have any issues with your lawn. The guys in the crew were super nice and even though I offered them our bathroom, they went to local public establishments. Great job guys! Melodie M-Whitefish Bay

We initially contracted with Tom to remodel two bathrooms and install tile floor throughout our downstairs family room, hall and son's downstairs bedroom. Tom was doing such a great job so we began to trust his work the more we saw getting done. We then also asked him to remove wood paneling, install drywall, paint our entire lower level, add can lighting and install solid core doors throughout our house. We are thrilled with the finished product. He works faster alone then other contractors do with entire crews! Great work at a reasonable price.

Mike Israel was hired to fix our concrete stamped patio. The company who installed it did not do a good job. Mike came out promptly and was able to clean up and seal the concrete. Looks better now and we are happy with the job he did. Pleasure to work with for estimate and job completion. You can tell he takes pride in his work. Would hire him again. Highly recommend doing business with his company.

We had a repair job - one panel of our fence had fallen down. I had called around and fence company after fence company told me the job was too small or out of their service area or they couldn't do it until 3 weeks out. Mike responded to my request promptly and was able to come out and do the work the next morning. He was early, he was quick, he was friendly, and he seemed to do a solid job.

Lee did an excellent job on our wood fence replacement. He was the first and best bid; very competitive pricing and no middlemen. The guy you talk to about the project is the guy who does it. Lee (and his crew) worked diligently and expeditiously to start on time and finish ahead of schedule. Quality worksmanship. Good price. Responsive and respectful. I wouldn't hesitate to use Lee again and recommend you give him a shot, too.

They were the right price. Very professional. We had a horizontal cedar fence installed with metal posts. They covered the posts with wood, capped off the top of the fence and they custom made the gate just the way we wanted it to be. They did a good job of cleaning up after themselves, and given it was a rainy spring, really did their best to get our fence done as quickly as possible. I would definitely hire them again.

I am so appreciative of the amount of detail Gill and his crew put into our fence install. I’ve never seen a fence go up before but I was expecting a quick kind of "throw it up as fast as possible" job. That is certainly not the case with Superior Fence! I really appreciate people like Melody and Gill that take pride in the work they do.

Joe came to our house the week of...(before) the Fourth of July to lay laminate (wood plank) flooring. Initially, he thought it would take 2 nights, but it ended up being 2 nights and one more day trip...which was fine with us. He was MORE than committed to the job and completing it. He was devoted to doing a good job and making sure we were happy. All in all, we are more than happy with him and his work. We would HIGHLY reccomend him!-for any job, big or small. We would definitely hire him again.

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.
