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.

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. 

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.

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.

Travis built a cedar privacy fence for me. Excellent craftsmanship, fair pricing, very communicative, and timely. I would absolutely hire Travis again for another landscaping project, and would recommend him highly to anyone. Gorgeous fence, we are so incredibly happy with it.

The contractor showed up and did a measurement, but has not quoted for two weeks now. Not reliable at all. Not recommended to other customers who are interested in a fence project.

H-Plus Professional was exceptional! I had a fence that was literally pulling from the ground due to an original shoddy job. H-plus explained three issues he discovered and how he’d fix. He fixed the concrete job, added rock and re-stabilized my aluminum fence. He was a great communicator and super quick to respond and schedule the service. I can’t believe the how perfect the job turned out given it was 1 person! Awesome company, will be using H-plus again and again!

Arthur came and gave me a bid within 24 hours for repairing a fence that had 11 rotted posts. Rather than replacing them, he used a clever repair kit that will last much longer than replacement posts, which would eventually rot again. It took about 4 days to complete the work. Arthur was good at keeping in touch and usually responded right away. He used quality materials and did good work. The outcome exceeded my expectations. One side of the fence was ready to fall over and now it’s as sturdy as the day it was first installed 11 years ago. He also went the extra mile on a complex removable section of fence that was very problematic and took a lot of extra time - he made it better than it was. Repairing 11 wooden fence posts is hard work and takes a good deal of time. We definitely feel like we got good value for the price. He is trustworthy and it felt like he cared about doing quality work. Also did a nice job cleaning up when the the job was done. We have already hired him for another job.

They were able to provide an in-person estimate almost immediately. I then had to reach out again to get the fence repair on their schedule, but I was pleased that they were willing to work on a small job. They also charged a very fair price, and were very friendly.

Arthur did a great job on my fencing project. A little more complicated than it looked and he found a way to get the job finished. Value was good as well. I'd hire him again. My neighbor wanted his info as well for some future projects.

He came out and fixed a few posts on my fence. Noticed a couple of additional things that were needed and quoted them out as well. Then when he found out that he couldn't find the exact parts to complete the job, he took the extra time to custom make them! Awesome!! Thank you!! I'd recommend OnPoint to everyone!!

Nick from On Point Improvements did a great job for us at a great price, and he included a solid warranty that the other estimates we got did not include. Our job ended up being a huge hassle, because the previous homeowner buried an electrical line very shallowly and without conduit. Because the previous homeowner did this himself and the locates couldn't have possibly detected this, the line got hit when fence posts were getting put up. Nick really showed up for us here. Not only did he fix our electrical situation, he wrapped our line in conduit and buried it deeper so we can avoid these types of things in the future. I feel this is a prime example of Nick going above and beyond for us. He also foresaw a few problems with the initial fence layout my wife and I proposed, and he helped us come up with some creative solutions to solve those problems. I don't give out five star reviews often, but On Point Improvements definitely deserves these five stars. We will be hiring them again in the future, and we give them our highest recommendation.

He was a very nice guy, professional in person and the fence he installed was great and at THE BEST price. So, overall I'm happy now that it's done. His communication is horrible though. It was hard to get ahold of him, he was vague about when he would be doing the work. I asked him to quote me for future work twice, both times he measured my front yard and then I never heard from him. I wouldn't hire him again because it was such a hassle to communicate with him, which is a shame because he seemed like such a good guy.
