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.

These guys were responsive, gave the best price, and did excellent work. They removed my old fence (which included removing a lot of brush and weeds) and built a beautiful new fence for me. They didn’t use pre-fab fencing. This was built on site, to fit my property. I’m thrilled and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you JFG Fences!

We reached out to 4 different fence companies. JFG fences responded right away and was the only ones willing to install the fence around our mature trees (other companies said we would have to cut them down or move them). They were able to install our 200ft fence in a day! Communication was challenging at times but we're happy with the end result. Competitive pricing. Highly recommend.

I cannot say enough good about ASA Fence! The punctuality and speed in completing the project were incredible. Plus the fence is gorgeous. We’ve been in a tough bind with our neighbor’s dog and our dogs getting along, something we weren’t expecting to deal with when we moved into our first home. We have been contemplating getting a fence put up eventually, but after a few fence fights between the dogs, we knew we had to find something soon. ASA not only gave us a really fantastic quote, but also was able to work us into their schedule two days after we had contacted them. I cannot stress enough the friendliness, professionalism, and craftsmanship that this small business boasts! We will definitely be using them in the future to finish off fencing the rest of our yard!

Very quickly available both to come for and estimate and to put up the fence afterwards. Worked very steadily and methodically, put up a very fine fence and gate within the space of a day, cleaned up very thoroughly and nicely afterwards. I'm planning to hire them again.

I explained to Sara that I needed a fence immediately, and her crew came out that same day, quoted me that evening, and started the work the following day. The fence came out great! I then hired her crew to do a few other small tasks and they were done well.

These guys did wonderful job replacing and repairing my fence. They responded promptly to my request, showed up in a timely way to look at the job and I received the estimate that very same day. The work was perfect, no hassles. Emperor Fence is an exceptional company and definitely worth checking out. I would definitely use them again.

ASA did a fantastic job installing a fence at the end of the property. The fence is for keeping small dogs from getting out and they were careful not to leave gaps they could squeeze through. They were very courteous, responsive, and punctual. They also installed a short handrail for the garden steps, which will be a big help. I am thrilled with their work.

This has been an ongoing nightmare. I contracted and paid to have a fence installed around my entire yard. This company stopped working mid-way, admitted they didn't order enough materials, and demanded thousands of more dollars than we agreed to under the contract or they won't work anymore. My yard only has half the fence up, and the company refuses to return to finish the job unless I pay thousands of dollars more than we contracted for. I am now going to have to deal with litigation with this company and will continue to have a half-fenced in yard for many months. It has literally been a nightmare. They responded to this lying and saying that I changed the work order, but that doesn't make any sense. I never changed a thing -- the agreement was for a fence around the yard. THEY changed the terms by demanding more money. Nightmare.

I had a great customer experience with Simple Fence LLC. Professional expertise and superb results highlight my experience. During the consultation phase, David intently listened to my vision and provided great feedback and recommendations. Upon completion of the project, I was very impressed at the construction and design of my new fence. David also has a very affable personality with great communication skills that made him easy to work with. I am looking forward to doing more business with David in the future; and I will highly recommend Simple Fence LLC to my friends, family and associates. Very satisfied customer, Alan

Wilson came the day I called, gave me a fair price, and scheduled the work for the next day. His team removed my deteriorating stockade fence and custom rebuilt it. They did a beautiful job, cutting the pickets to match existing fencing in my yard. They came with all necessary materials and tools and cleaned up afterwards. I would definitely use them for future projects and recommend them.

This company did a great job. They were responsive to emails and punctual. There was brush and part of a privacy fence that had to be removed and that was no problem. The cost was competitive. I would recommend this company.

Frank was great. He built us a great picket fence. They were very welcoming of our ideas on what we wanted it to look like and the finished product is great looking.

Simple Fence came out a few days after i contacted them and gave me a quick and understandable quote for the project. David (the owner) took measurements then and there even though I was still not sure about the project. He reassured me along the way and when i decided to hire him he began the work right away. He built me a custom wood double fence gate for my drive way and I LOVE IT. It looks beautiful, is extremely functional, and was completed very quickly while still maintaining high quality.

They have done excellent high quality work for me, on three tasks: building a white fence around my side yard, after removing an old metal fence; replacing the boards, railings, and one of the supporting posts of my back deck, and replacing my 50 year old cracked and sunken driveway and gravel-covered parking port with leveled cement. All of their work has impressed my neighbors, who are now asking for quotes for similar work. Wilson Construction are experienced, responsible, and quality-oriented, and very careful in understanding their customers wants and needs. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Luis was very professional. Showed up when he said he would, and finished on time. Not easy to find such service in the city. He was very willing to work with me, even when we had to make some changes, and accomplish an extra project. The fence looks fantastic - completely improves our yard. Highly recommended!
