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.

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. 

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.

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.

I hired Adam to remove an old chain link fence and install a wooden privacy fence. Adam was communicative throughout the project and completed the work faster than he originally had quoted. He answered all my questions and did a great job! I'm very pleased with the work and plan to use his company again for other jobs.

I had (qty. 12) - 4x4 fence posts that needed to be removed and replaced. the old posts were set in concrete and dirt at top. they rotted at the base. they used jack hammer and heavy long chisel to bust away concrete. The posts were in tight areas and a pain to remove.There were trees , roots, air conditioners , trellises and a neighbors old side walk to contend with. This nightmare was done in one day, with old fence reattached to new posts. The price was fair and work was very good. I looked at doing this project my self. looked into all the different methods of removing posts in concrete, all were possible if your fence was in an open field and your 4x4 posts still attached well to concrete. I did my home work and made the right choice. American Fence quoted a price and that's the price it was. Steve and 3 other workers came out and did a great job, where my neighbors committed what a good job they did and how nice it looks. Just so you know i had other company's estimate this project and all wanted to short cut by not removing old posts and concrete and just digging new holes and re-cutting fence to fit. They were more expensive. Thanks American Fence for a fair price and a job done right.

Never followed up with estimate for fence repair. Tried to reach them twice after they came to look at work. Disappointing because they were initially very responsive.

I’ve had to deal with a lot of shady contractors in Chicago, but working with Ricardo and Atlas was a breath of fresh air! He was extremely helpful through the whole process of buying and installing our new fence. He showed us different options and the price couldn’t be beat! They were all very professional and delivered on time, even with the weather not cooperating. They clearly stand by their work and I would not hesitate to recommend Atlas to anyone looking for fence work.

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

Dan & Jake were very easy to work with. They were able to fit in a onsite quote the same week as my initial request. Since we were replacing three separate unit’s fences we had a bit of a rocky start with initial installation timeline and quality of work however when I addressed the issues with Dan he was responsive and sent out a team member to correct the items I had escalated. There was also some confusion with the fence size, again once I escalated to Dan he promptly addressed. The end result was worth it and I would recommend Bespoke Fence, but note two things: 1. The wood is untreated so you will need to treat it yourself if you don’t want BF to stain. 2. Constant communication with the project lead.

They did a good job with the fence. Looks good, good work. Will possibly hire again someday. If we work together in the future, will need an agreement that any and all changes to the base scope will be agreed upon before contractor proceeds.
