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.

Reviews for Ashburn fence professionals

Bruce did a substantial 6' wooden privacy fence around the entirety of my backyard. Instead of using pre-fab sections of fence, he cleared brush, measured and built the entire fence himself picket-by-picket. He was always on time, worked through crappy weather, and did it all for an extremely fair price. Very satisfied!

Gregg Moore and the guys at New England Wall and Fence did a terrific job with my backyard fence and gate. Instead of trying to sell me an expensive new fence to keep my two rambunctious dogs in the yard, Gregg figured out a way to modify and repair the existing fence and gate. He brought in new posts and straightened/reinforced everything that was out of alignment. The fence was repaired while I was at work the day after I signed the contract. They worked quickly and cleaned up the area when they were done. I'm so impressed, I'm going to use Gregg and NEWF to do some front sidewalk cementing for us in the Spring. Gregg and his company did everything for under $500.

Jon and his team were awesome!! They installed an aluminum fence in my front yard in less than 4 hours. They were so nice and worked well together. My neighbor was so impressed she's having them do the same in her yard. I wish I had another fence for them to do.

Had a beautiful fence installed by Stephen and team. They are reasonable on pricing and willing to think outside of the box. They're a busy team, but well worth working with.

I had Gregg and his crew out to remove an existing chain link fence and poured concrete wall and replace it with a pine privacy fence and block retaining wall. They did an excellent job. It took them about a week to complete the project and were a great crew to work with. I would highly recommend them for any hardscapes work you need for your home.

Jon's guys did a fabulous job on the fence. They did not finish in one day as originally indicated, but nevertheless, the quality and price were fantastic. Jon's guys were also very friendly and informative. I would recommend.

My project was a privacy fence in the backyard, about 225'. Bruce contacted me right away, came by the house to look at the project and gave me a quote right there. He was super responsive, let me know exactly when he could start, what he would be doing and updated along the way. Bruce and his partner showed up as promised and installed the fence without any issues. They completed the job quickly and cleaned up. The work is top notch, taking great detail in completing the job with great quality!

Can't say enough good things! We needed a section of fencing replaced (maybe 25') - they were able to squeeze us in next day, and were in and out within like an hour. They even took the extra time to replace a panel in our gate that had broken at the top, even though we didn't ask or include that in the quote (which was very reasonable). All 3 guys were very kind and friendly, which is important to me. We will definitely be looking to them in the future!
