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.

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.

Patrick was great to work with! He removed my chain linked fence, and installed a 30’ cast iron fence for me. Fair price and excellent workmanship. He responded immediately to my request and was here the day after. I’m very happy with my fence and will use his services again in the future.

Our wooden fence continues to shift and lean away from the house after Claitor's second attempt to reapir it. This causes one of the 2 gates on the front of our house to not close properly, and the overall appearance is sloppy. I am having to pay a different fence company over $1K to redo the front fences and gates.

We cannot say enough great things about David. He was incredibly quick to respond to our requests and had our new fence and gate installed in no time. Our gate and fence turned out absolutely beautiful and we loved working with David. We just hired him a second time to put up additional fencing in our yard, and he did it within a week of our request! Do not hesitate - hire David if you want an honest, professional, meticulous fence installer. And his prices are incredibly reasonable!

Although very nice and responsive, Claitor Fence could not complete simple wood gates with an opening mechanism on both sides. The fence has shifted since they built it two months ago, and I need both hands to adjust the fence so the gates can open and close. I have to hire someone else to come repair the gates and put appropriate hardware on them so that I can enter and exit from both sides.

David was a pleasure to work with. He built a fence on one side of our property, did lattice work under our porch, and replaced fence boards in need of repair on the opposite side of our property. He gave a very thorough and fair estimate and was in communication with me at each step of the way. We would highly recommend David to any and all.

If I had the ability to choose all 5 highlights I would have! Rodney is awesome and he did a fantastic job on our fence! Due to a minor incident we had to replace our short gated fence asap, and Rodney got it done all on his own in less than 2 weeks! We are very satisfied with the results and would highly recommend this pro!

It saddens me to write this. Steven and I came to an agreement on our fence project. Steven stated that he would start our fence project on a specified dated. He then said that he needed the date changed due to weather which I agreed too and completely understood. But after waiting two weeks for the project to start. He then told me that he could not do the job any longer. Now after waiting 2 weeks for the job to begin he has left me in a bind because we needed our fence completed for a party we were having. Be aware that Steven does not follow through with planned projects before starting them.

Thomas showed up immediately to give me a quote and finished the job in record time. He helped brainstorm some ideas and fixed my leaning fence and he installed a new section of deck and fence. He's absolutely precise with his measurements and his work quality shows he's been building for many years. I'm hiring him to install cabinet hardware because I know they will be level and installed correctly.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Gianni contacted me immediately after I placed a request for fence contractors in my area. We met the following morning (he was there ahead of time!) he gave me an extremely reasonable quote and worked with my schedule to get it done. The fence is perfect. Now we are moving onto many other projects. I highly recommend Gianni and his team as they have both integrity and professionalism. Five stars!!!!

Oscar did a great job on our fence where a tree was busting through. He built around it since the tree could not be removed and fixed some other areas too. We really feel like we got our money's worth. Very easy to deal with and good communication.

Edward was a joy to work with. He quickly installed my new fence, fixed my house skirting, and sealed my house, all within a day. Edward was incredibly responsive, flexibly working around my schedule, and used covid-19 safety precautions by following social distancing protocols while on site and wearing a mask. Edward offers a competitive price, excellent professionalism, and array of services to improve your home. Thanks, Edward!

These guys are amazing. I’m a new homeowner and it seems my fence wasn’t properly installed. After the heavy rains a week ago, the some of the beams were so soaked that the gate came unhinges. The One Stop Shop guys came out immediately and not only fixed our issue, but we even got a quick upgrade that helped out gate to open much easier. I was very impressed with how well the work was done and how quick the team’s response was. Great stuff.

James and Curtis from C Force Construction did an amazing job! Super fast response time and EXCELLENT work. The painted our rental unit, replaced our 8' privacy fence, replaced windows, fixed drywall, completed electrical repairs, and James built a beautiful Cypress frame and mantel for one of our fireplaces. All of this was done in just a couple evenings work! They are very professional and were so much fun to work with. I could not recommend them more!
