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.

Brad was very responsive to my inquiry on a fencing job. Gave me a great quote, and even came out early to complete the job to get ahead of bad weather that was coming. I highly recommend Titan fencing based on the experience I just had. I was kept in the loop on any issues and Brad was extremely courteous and professional with me. Please give Titan Fencing your consideration, if you are looking for a solid company that will have your back its Titan.

They did a great job on my fence and were able to put in a temporary solution before it was done so I could still let my dog out.

Although Shane didn't claim to be an expert in the repair I required, he certainly solved the problem very well. It didn't need immediate repair but he kept in touch to let me know when it would be done and he didn't charge the $500 minimum that the fence companies said they would charge.

For a company that's in the "fencing" business I am shocked. The work appears to be done by amateurs. Inconsistent spacing of pickets all the way across. I mentioned this to Andy before paying him and he had multiple excuses as to why that was. He took pics before leaving to review the work. He called me later that day and agreed it was bad. He said they would be back out later that week to correct the issues. Multiple weeks and multiple no shows later, he has not come back to fix the issue like he said he would. My mistake for paying him and beliving he'd follow through on his word. I would not recommend this company at all.

I have actually called, hired and completed a project with GoKrub Handyman. I had a wonderful experience with him that mirrors other satisfied customers who hired him and gave him 4.8 ratings on https://www.thumbtack.com/. We had to repair sections of fence with new fence posts and completely turn around other sections to comply with Shawnee City Code because we had just completed building a swimming pool. Eric was honest. Eric was efficient. Eric listened to us as clients and did as we asked. I liked the straight forward per hour pricing + you supply your own materials (others try to get you on marking up material costs). Another thing I loved is he is an animal lover. This may be unconventional, but he brought his dog with him that he just rescued who has an anxiety disorder. He did not let it interfere with his job in the least. We didn’t mind and let him work with his dog in the yard (and I even went out and petted her several times). His dog was well mannered and had a great disposition. It reminded me of how Gary Lezak brings his dogs to work with him. I have to respect someone who has compassion for an animal’s welfare. If that is something that could be an issue for you then you might want to find someone who is jaded that charges twice as much an hour and marks up their materials. As this was the first time, I hired him; I did watch the time and he was right on about the hours he worked over a 2-day period. I will be hiring him again in the future when we need him. Without any doubt I highly recommend him. He is honest. He listens. He is efficient. He is reasonably priced per hour. He has compassion. His work is amazing!
