Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

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.

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.

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.

I needed a pretty minor repair done on my wooden fence. Carlos was able to come the next day and get in done within about an hour. He was courteous, did good quality work and charged a fair price.

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.

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.
