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.

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.

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.

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. 

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 Olathe fence professionals

Andy and his helpers did a fantastic job fencing in my backyard. There was good communication and it was done at a reasonable price within a quick timeframe. In addition to installing a fence for my yard, they even went above and beyond by doing some minor repairs to my neighbor’s bordering fence and also filled in a sunken area alongside my house at no additional charge. I am very pleased with H & A Fence and highly recommend this company.

We had a section of our old fence blow over during a storm and we received a few estimates to replace the whole fence. After reading about the great work done by Shane and his company for previous fence projects, we reached out to him for an estimate. Shane gave a very fair estimate and we hired him to do the work. He was very good in communicating with us to set the weekend to complete the work. His crew did a great job taking out the old fence and replacing with the new one within a day. I highly recommend Shane for any fence work you need done.

Andy did a professional job on installing the fencing and also did it in a short amount of time. Because of the cold weather this wasn't an easy thing to do. I will be hiring this company back for other fencing and deck jobs.

Stop looking for anyone else. Shane and his team completed substantial repair to my fence with surgeon like precision. He answered my quote request within hours and the cost was extremely affordable. I hope my fence doesn’t have anymore issues, but if it did. I will not hesitate to call Shane.

If you are looking for a fence that is high quality and a great value, then I would highly recommend Brandon at Titan Fence. He just installed our 6ft wood privacy fence and we are nothing but pleased. Brandon was polite, friendly, and responsive - always kept me up to date with things and didn't hesitate to ask questions to make sure everything was just the way we wanted it. We knew we had some large rocks under the soil in our yard, and he hit a few when digging the posts, but he did a great job with getting them out. His attention to detail was wonderful and he made sure to clean up following the project. Our dog even enjoyed him! Please don't hesitate to reach out to him for a quote, you won't regret it!

Fence Masters did a great job at a reasonable price. They came out the day after we met and had the job done by that afternoon. To say I was pleased with the service would be an understatement. I will definitely use them again.

They showed up when they said they would and they got everything done as planned. The price he gave me is exactly what i paid. If you want a company to build you a fence the way you want it. They will do it and do it well.

Courtney and team did a thorough job starting from quotes to hauling away dirt (per my request). They finished project on time and beat the quotes of other companies by a good margin. I would highly recommend them for your fencing needs.

Mike was quick to quote a fair price and listened to my needs. He didn’t try to sell me more than what I asked for. He gave me a bid on Monday and had the work done on Thursday. Mike was also very friendly and I felt comfortable with him. I’ll definitely use Mike again if I need fence repairs!

There is no better value in KC. BDBM Familia blew our expectations out of the water and beat the competition on price. Even though the weather fought us every step of the way, they bent over backwards to make sure we were completely satisfied with the end result. We were told we'd have the best fence on the block and may have ended up with the best in town. I absolutely cannot recommend this company enough!
