Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
  • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
  • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
  • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

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.

How much does it cost to install a fence gate?

Adding a gate to your fence can be a practical way to provide access to a yard, work area or outdoor living space while ensuring safety and privacy. Gate installation costs will vary based on the gate material you select, the size of your gate, whether you install a fence at the same time, and any special features you’d like to add. Standard opening size for a single-wide gate is 4 feet; a double-wide gate is 8 feet. A small gate may be for decoration; a double-wide gate can be mounted on a rolling caster system to allow access for cars or wide loads. Here are some examples of average fence gate installation costs:

  • 4-foot, single-swing chain-link gate: $100 for materials and installation costs.
  • 28-foot wheeled chain-link gate on a caster system: $800-$1,000 for materials and installation costs.
  • 4-foot, single-swing wood gate: $75.
  • 8-foot double-wide wood gate: $150.
  • 4-foot white vinyl walk-through gate: $300–$400 for materials and installation costs.
  • 8-foot, double-wide white vinyl gate: about $800 for materials and installation costs.
  • White vinyl gate fence more than 8 feet wide: $1,200-$1,500 for materials and installation.
  • Arched black powder-coated aluminum pool gates: $175-$200 per gate.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

How much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

I had a custom fence installed. They arrived on time and had the fence completed ahead of schedule. I was asked to inspect it prior to final payment. The fence is great; my dogs can now use their dog door at will!

River City Fence did a great job with installation. Due to COVID we had to wait awhile for the fence to come in because we had gone with the white aluminum. Michael did well keeping in touch with me about the hold up. I have and will continue to recommend him and the River City fencing Co. to friends and Family.

We had an old fence spray washed, a new gate put in (and posts repaired), several new boards and some structural improvements on one side of the fence. Also had a railing installed next to outdoor steps to patio. Martin did a fantastic job and was on time (actually finished early) and on budget. Highly recommend.

We had a privacy fence installed. The workers were very nice and professional. They worked hard to give us what we wanted. The only issue we had was delay due to weather but that wasn't anything that could have been avoided.

I needed to have about 25 feet of fence removed and replaced behind my property along the alley, including installing a large gate large enough for a car to drive through. In order to get on the schedule, I put half down at the end of March, hoping for an April installation. The weather did not cooperate, so it took a little longer than I wanted for the fence to actually be built (4/19-5/2). But I was extremely happy with the end result!!! The gate is effortless and I have privacy and protection again along my alley. I would definitely recommend this company to others.

The installation of the fence, and the gates, and the lattice around the deck, all went very smooth once the job got started. All of the workers were very professional. There was a delay in getting the job started due to rain and it did rain alot this summer. It rained quite a bit from May until after the 4th of July. But, they were extremely professional keeping me posted and once they got started the job went perfect.

We contracted with River City Fence Corp in October 2019, and our fence installation was completed December 2019. We initially contacted Mike in Aug or Sept and he quickly met with us, reviewed our yard and based on our needs helped us pick the right fence. During his yard evaluation he noticed how a few trees were awkwardly situated and suggested we have a surveyor look at our property line. We did and discovered our property line was quite different than we'd thought. We decided to stay with the original fence configuration, but his thoroughness and knowledge made us aware of some vital information about our property. Once we got that all situated and contacted him to sign the contract he got back with us right away. He was upfront about the timeframe we were looking at, and had the fence up almost to the day of his estimation. If we hadn't had so much rain this Fall I think he would have completed early. We emailed him a few times to get updates on the schedule and he always answered the emails within 24 hours, and was always polite, professional and honest. His prices were on par with other estimates we received. We almost didn't know they were working in our yard they were so quiet. Although they weren't finished with the installation, they came out Christmas Eve to clean up the work area so we wouldn't have a "messy" backyard for Christmas (surprised us completely, such a thoughtful thing to do). When we did our final walk through, Mike pointed out the 2 items we noticed before we even told him about them and reassured us they'd be back out the next day to correct the issue (both were minor but noticeable). They were out and done so quickly we didn't even know they'd been here. I mean these guys were GREAT! Our experience with River City Fence Corp. was first-class, A-1 all the way. Thank you Mike for being so wonderful to work with.
