Things to know before you get started.
6 Steps to Fence Repair
  1. 1. Research local contractors

    Get an idea of the general cost of repairs or maintenance for your fence by consulting a variety of contractors.

  2. 2. Schedule appointments

    Pros typically install new fences, but they can also perform repairs. Get at least three estimates to be sure you are obtaining the best value for your money.

  3. 3. Make a selection

    Choose the contractor that suits your needs and ensure that the company is licensed and carries liability insurance.

  4. 4. Stay on top of paperwork

    Request that any permits for the work are pulled prior to the onset of repairs. The laws governing fence repair and maintenance vary greatly, so check with your local authorities.

  5. 5. Have the pro explain the work

    Remember that a contractor might find further damage or the need for more repairs when he or she begins the job. This discovery could add to the cost of the repairs.

  6. 6. Pay attention to scheduling

    Ask for discounts if the work takes longer than estimated, and ask if the contractor provides a guarantee for the work. Ensure that anything you find wrong is fixed prior to the pro leaving the job.
