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.

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.

I needed my fence repaired and Monty came over and did a fantastic job. It's an old fence with that has a lot of warped pieces, and Monty actually took part of the fence apart and put it back together. Skilled worker, and a good man!

Contacted Wilson on a fence project replacing an entire side which needed to be replaced. The quote Wilson provided was reasonable and in my budget. He was able to break Down and install new fence all within a few hours. The workmanship, quality and most of all professionalism Wilson and team provided was appreciated. He has quoted me on another project which I will be calling him and team to tackle within the upcoming weeks.

Thanks to thumbtack for showing me this ASA construction company. They did a professional job by installing our new metal fence 6ft around the pool. That's exactly what I was expecting. Byron made us comfortable, he did exactly what we wanted to do. It was worth the wait. The workers did a very professional job even in the heat. I really appreciate their efforts and all their work. I would definitely hire them back if we have any other fence to install. You will not be disappointed. Thank you ASA construction for making our pool area nicer.

I was impressed with the work for the wood fence. He works with you even if you do not have all of the money. I would only advise that the fee for removing the old material to be more affordable, but he did lower mines. I may use him again for future projects. Suppose to come back and do my plants.

Like many of my fellow reviewers, I wish to caution customers in selecting responsible service providers. Quality of work and the fact that my fence repair was built from scratch and not using prefabricated materials shows the owner cares about quality. Unfortunately, other aspects of their job performance mirrors what other reviewers have said: unclear communication, punctuality, and work ethic of subcontracted help turned a four hour job into 7.5 hours. This is unnecessary and inefficient business practices that should not be tolerated and will affect my decision whether or not to hire back this company.

Ernesto was simply amazing! He is very professional and responsive. Unlike some other contractors I've had in the past, he showed up on time, made sure that I understood every aspect of the job, listened to my needs, and it did it all at an affordable price. He even gave me other home improvement tips to help me save money down the road while increasing the value in my home. I highly recommend him and his company if you are in need of a new fence or repairs. I am more than satisfied with the job that he did and can not thank him enough!
