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.

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 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 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.

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 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.

Shane Triplett, the owner of Missouri Fence and Supply was the first contractor to respond initially and the first to make an appointment for the fence project. His interest and promptness was appreciated and I hired him after receiving 2 other estimates. We had a couple of communications difficulties prior to the completion of the project but worked through these issues. Mr. Triplett and his crew worked diligently and professionally and completed the fence project on time and as quoted. I most impressed with Mr. Triplett's explanation as to the step by step process for the installation of 92' of cedar fencing, the quality of the materials he uses, and the exact details of what I the estimate included. No questions were left unanswered. I would highly recommend Missouri Fence and Supply for any fencing project.

Jon is extremely knowledgeable and professional. We greatly appreciate his willingness to work us into his schedule and have our fence done so quickly. He also took the time to explain the installation process. The fence is sturdy, straight, level and made out of very high quality material. Highly recommended!

I contracted Rojas General Contracting to replace a wood fence on my rental property, that is 250 miles from my residence. I was very pleased with the bidding process and the schedule that was promised to get the job done. The new fence was installed on time and with excellent workmanship. I would recommend Rojas General Contracting as a reputable business that is very professional and they provide great customer service also.

I contacted Andy to build a fence for me about a week ago and he got things rolling immediately. He gave me a quick bid and we agreed. He started getting things lined up right away. I can't speak on the quality of work because he never got to install the fence due to HOA being a PITA but if he approached the construction of the fence in the same manner he went about getting things organized I would have been pleased. He was extremely accommodating when we had to switch materials a day out and then rearrange pickups of old stuff. Good guy.

It took a while for our HOA to approve our fence. Andy was patient and thorough with his follow-ups. Once we got the go ahead, he immediately went to work. Thought it would be three days to install and surprised us with a two day turnaround. Very pleased!

I hired Rodrigo for the installation of 195 feet of privacy fence. He was a pleasure to work with and did what he said he would do. I couldn't be happier about the quality of work and attention to detail. I would strongly recommend giving Rojas General Contracting a shot on your next project.

H and A was one of the best consumer experiences I have had in years. Andy is wonderful and they completed the job on time and very professionally. I had a tree fall on part of the new fence days after installation and Andy was there pronto and repaired it at a great rate. I would not hesitate to refer them to any friend! Great job, guys!

Michael was great to work with. He gave us a fair estimate; showed up when he said he was going to; and worked like a navvy to get our fence up (complete with two gates, and arbor installation) in two days. We were very impressed! We'll definitely use him again, and highly recommend him.

Andy gave me an estimate around 8:30PM on a Wednesday and my new gates were installed by 4:30PM the next day! Beautiful work. Love my new gates. Andy and Brett did the work and were friendly and efficient. I will hire again when I replace the rest of my chainlink fence.

Our privacy fence was damaged when a tree was knocked down in a storm. It ruined about half of the fence, so we decided it would be best to just replace the entire thing. I tried to work with multiple different fence vendors through Thumbtack. Most did not reply, when they did they were priced outrageously, and with significant delays to installation. Of the other vendors that quoted to replace the fence, no one but Daniel replied with an actual bid (that I could take to insurance), and no one could get us on the schedule in a reasonable amount of time. Daniel was able to get his team on site within a week, and completed all of the work plus some additional I requested in prompt fashion. Our backyard has some significant challenges, and Daniel worked through all potential issues with me ahead of time to ensure my satisfaction with the final product. Our new fence looks amazing. The work quality is fantastic, the cost to replace it was incredibly reasonable, and Daniel communicated things with me through the entire project clearly and concisely. I look forward to recommending his service to our friends and family, and hope that I can use Daniel and his team again in the future.

Andy installed a large chain link fence and gate for our family and it turned out to be a blessing. The dogs and grandbabies have a wonderfully secured yard to play in. Andy and his crew were professional, courteous and respectful of our property. Everything was cleaned up as the work was being performed and property was left in the same condition as when they arrived. We are tremendously grateful for a job well done. The estimate was exact with no hidden costs. We highly recommend Andy and his crew for any fencing projects in which you may have. Thank you Andy and your crew. Any future projects requiring your expertise will be yours.

We are very happy with our beautiful fence. You quickly contacted me, and came out to give us an estimate. The installation went very well. The crew was kind, respectful and professional. They were very careful not to damage my plants and did a great job of cleaning up everything before they left. We couldn't be happier!! We are staining it later this summer after the wood is completely dry.

Fence was fine (reason for giving this review 2 stars instead of 1) and owner seemed helpful during sales process...but customer service afterwards was truly frustrating. We called about a month after install to let the owner know that the double gate they installed was not working properly and kept getting stuck on the stationary side when we tried to close it. The owner's initial response was to inform me that that they are not responsible for settling (after a month?) but that he would come out to take a look. When he came out, he agreed it needed adjustment so they planned the stationary side - but it seemed that they really needed to take both gates off and adjust the hinges so that they lined up properly in order to fix the issue. We continued to have problems and our dogs kept getting out (the whole reason we spent over $6,300 in the first place) so I reached out to him again. Instead of being concerned or receptive, I was told that we and our workers were obviously not closing the gate properly (what??) and that I was being "abrasive" in my requests so he would "get to it when they could". So much for the "warranty" they give you! We subsequently had a carpenter friend come out to take a look and he said there were other installation issues with the hinges and side post that were going to likely lead to more issues with the gate sagging a year or two down the road. I will say it was partially my fault for not fully checking things out before paying him the last payment once they finished. But it was Feb. and I just assumed all was good and that we had the warranty if we had a problem with anything. Not so much. End analysis? Proceed with caution before giving them your money! Seems poor reviews are my only recourse at this point (and who wants to spend more of their time doing that? Ugh.)...
