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.

The day Kenny came he was sick and he still showed up and did an excellent job. His prices can’t be beat. I looked with other fence companies and beat them all. So if you need a fence Kenny is the fence guy for you.

From the start he walked my property and gave me good ideas on how to design the fence, locate gates,etc. His price was fair and his work was exceptional. All of his workers were very easy to talk to and accommodating. The fence came out better than I expected, they really went the extra mile paying attention to detail and picked up after the job was done so you could appreciate their hard work and not a mess after they were done. I used 6 ft vinyl privacy fence and the product he uses seems to be very high quality and is much better looking than any other vinyl fence I've seen. Details in the top and bottom rails make all the difference and the post tops. If you need a fence Dave Kingsey is the guy to use if you want it done once and done right!

I hired this company to install a new section of fence in my backyard. Kenny gave me a fair price . Peter, Trevor and Kenny were professional , friendly and had a strong work ethic. The fence was more diffilcult to install then anticipated due to many deep rocks in that stretch of yard, but Kenny honored his set price given for the job. The fence looks beautiful. The corners and design is exactly as we wanted it to look like. I’m very happy. Thank you. Janene O’Neil Tip: always offer waters, food or a popsicle to workers to help them keep cool in the summer heat....we want beautiful work done not dropping bodies in our yards...lol....plus its a nice gesture.

Dave & his crew did a great job installing a new fence. They also cut down a couple very small trees and a small repair to my deck. I would definitely recommend them and seriously consider them for future work.

We hired Kenny G Fence because he came out when he said he would, gave us an estimate and started the job almost immediately. He was punctual, professional and polite. He provided us with step by step of the job and told us when he would be completed with the work and was finished ahead of schedule! We will definitely be utilizing Kenny G again, in fact we asked him about an existing gate we have that needs to be repaired and he said he would get back to me as soon as this weekend. I'm sure with his great rates, we'll hire him for that as well. If you need any type of fencing needs I strongly suggest that you contact Kenny G, you'll be very happy with the outcome.

I thought Greg was great when he came to look at the repair work the end of March. He gave me an estimate, said he would call the next week. He said he had a few jobs and would b a few days late & I have not heard from him since. No phone call, no text & does not respond to either. I hope everything is ok. Just not a great experience & I still need my fence repaired.
