Over the spring I had lost my large double gate to a wooden picket fence. I had contacted several companies for help and all came out and were beyond expensive. I found Steve through a google search/craigs list and then found his FB page. Having seen his work I felt confident in calling him. He was prompt in returning my call and came out within a few days to assess the issue. HE WAS THE ONLY PERSON to recommend repairing than replace the entire gate. He explained the history of my gate and how they dont make it anymore and how he could repair it using a system he has for situations like this. He was out in within a few days and fixed the gate plus a few other issues he noticed along my fence line. Steve is fantastic! He is honest and has great customer service skills. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a fence or fence repairs. Mike B

I had a great experience working with Obed and his team as they installed our 6' vinyl privacy fence. Obed stopped by our house to take a look at our yard the same day we first spoke on the phone about the project. After taking a look around our property, we agreed on a price and found a date that worked for us both to install the fence. The guys who work on Obed's team at GMP were very professional and thorough while installing the fence. They made sure to clarify all details of the installation with me prior to installing the fence. I highly recommend GMP!

I can't say enough about Dan Hanna of Pro Cut & Clean Landscaping. I am so happy with the repairs that Dan's company did and now my fence looks like new. After getting two quotes for replacing my fencing, I looked into repairing it instead. Dan came by the same day that we made contact through Thumbtack, proposed what he would do to restore my fence, and estimated what it would cost. Well, they did the work yesterday in one day, and today had it power washed and now my fence looks beautiful, really like new at one-seventh the cost of a new fence. My thanks to Dan and his very professional team. Katherine of Burlington, MA

Very high quality work at a fair price. Was very precise in his work and very clean. Hanged multiple framed pieces of art, used a laser level, and securely hung large pieces. Wall mounted three TVs including a 65" OLED on a marble fireplace. Creatively was able to find the wall studs behind the marble to hang the TV expertly. Also reinforced clothes rods in closets. Would definitely hire again and recommend to others.

I am a tenant in Worcester in a triple decker. I live on ground floor and have fenced in yard with a dog who loves that sort of thing. Call me spoiled but I got used to that. In the recent high-wind weather, a large 20' section of fence blew over. I discovered the posts were never cemented. Much to my dismay, the landlords did not want to fix the fence. In addition to having a dog I now had to leash walk everywhere, the yard was open to theft where I have a fire pit, grill, patio furniture, etc. I also feared the fallen fence would continue to get damaged and become impossible to salvage at all. I posted on thumbtack and received several replies. Some estimates were so high, they blew my mind. Then there was Billy. Billy wasted no time. He came right out to my apartment. He was empathetic to the fact that I was paying out of pocket on a property that wasn't mine and had a couple ideas on how to keep costs down. He recommended I buy the material. I bought it same day and two days later my fence was dug, poured, and set. The best part is he beat the snow coming and was extremely conscientious of his work. The old fence sections had rotted and worn down to the point where they had to be cut to be re-seated. Billy left full size posts for when those sections need to be replaced. When they are, they will match the height of the posts. I have already recommended Billy to a colleague who renovates and flips houses as a side business. I, myself, work for a General Contractor in Worcester but concrete and fence work was too much for me to tackle myself. I've been around the industry and I know good people when I see them. Billy is a hidden gem. I'd love to keep him the best kept secret I know but I'd be doing him and his work a dissatisfaction. I would recommend him to anyone. Without hesitation.

Amazing. Kenny does amazing work. I hired him to install both an aluminum fence and a chain-link fence at my house. He was a pleasure to work with and his workmanship was top notch. I am pretty sure he took more care with my project than he would do for his own. He even decided things weren't perfect (I couldn't even tell) and went above and beyond to improve things even more. It is also worth pointing out that he is very reliable (comes and does what and when he says he will). The real kicker is that he is extremely reasonably priced as well. You can't go wrong with Kenny G Fence and Railings.

I couldn't be happier with FW Home Improvement and I am so grateful that I was able to find him through Thumbtack. Felipe and his partner were wonderful and easy to work with throughout our project. He was courteous, responsive and did quality work on our new fence for a reasonable price. I am hoping to have FW Home Improvement back soon to help with other projects in our home. Thank you so much Felipe and Thumbtack!

My wife and I hired Heraldo to demolish an old covered back porch and replace it with an open deck, as well as a quick remodel of our existing front porch structure. We agreed on a VERY fair price. Heraldo agreed to start on a Friday morning. He arrived on time each of the 5 days that he worked at my house, was neat and clean in his work, meticulous to the smaller details, and responsive to any questions we had along the way. He is an extremely hard worker, working full days on both Saturday and Sunday, and had the whole project done and cleaned up by Tuesday afternoon. Just 5 days to completely do the whole project. Heraldo's work is top quality, and I would highly recommend him. If you are considering hiring him, he is a great choice.

Alex is fantastic at what he does. We hired him to paint and he ended up doing much more than that. We have a 100 year old house, he made it look new and clean and fresh. Fixed walls, filled in seams and cracks, took the time to do it all correct. We had a doorway hiding behind a large piece of paneling and when he removed it we wound up have to build a wall over it. Alex was able to do all of that and complete it within a day and managed to tape, mud and make it look like it was always there. Alex is very polite, friendly and works around our busy family. Our hallway was a two story staircase and had sand paint on the walls, he removed, skim coated and made it look like it was a complete replacement. We are thrilled and will be using him for all of our future projects.

V&C Painting and Construction INC helped install a costume chain linked gate for me and repair my chain linked fence. Joao came with an assistant and they were both a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, responsive, skilled, and was a pleasure to work with. He showed his knowledge of how to custom make a fence right and I appreciated his attention to detail in making sure that the fence was professionally built and also made my house looked great. They cleaned up all of their work and left my yard spotless. I will definitely hire him again for other projects around my house. Thank you!

Overall was very satisfied. The price was good value for a large replacement patio and fence. Bruno and his crew were all very friendly and responsive to trying to address my concerns. My yard presented challenges due to pitch of yard and some stump removal. They worked hard to make it work. Took longer then I expected but some delays were unavoidable due to weather and paving company not providing the right color mixture of pavers. And I was not in a hurry anyway. Bruno always got back to me on my questions and issues. Felt they were hard working and very honest.

5/25/2016 - I contacted Tony for the removal of my fence, about 200 feet and everything about my experience was up front, honest, and done within the time frame that we discussed. Tony came and gave me a quote on the spot and then the work was done the following week once we had a stretch of no rain and good weather. You don't find a lot of people like Tony that are normal good guys that do good work. I would highly recommend anyone that needs something done around the house, he does great work for a fair price!!

Cesar did a fantastic job with tearing down my broken fence and installing the new vinyl fence. He sent me pictures every step of the way, communicated with me throughout the process and completed the job in just a day and a half! I intend to hire him again for some other home repair projects I need done.

Chad and his colleague did a flawless job installing a new exterior door and building a custom frame and trim (door frame was not standard), on our 100 year old house. Their workmanship and professionalism from start to finish was top notch. We will absolutely hire them again and give them our highest recommendation!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much is a redwood fence per foot?

A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

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 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.

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 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.
