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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Andy and his team repaired my leaning fence within two days of his response to me on Thumbtack. He was courteous and knowledgable, and communicated quickly. The fence looks great and is solid as a rock. Highly recommend!

We needed a new post to repair a section of our 6' privacy fence. Andy and his crew were great to work with. He also noticed that the gate to the backyard wasn't opening as far as it should, so he offered to correct the problem at no additional charge! Hard to beat service like that! If I need our fence repaired again, i will use H & A Fence Company and recommend them to our friends and neighbors.

Very nice people and the only fencing contractor I contacted that actually responded, showed up to discuss the job and gave me a quote! Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed in the work done -- new and repaired fencing and installation of storm doors. Doors took a really long time to install in part because helper didn't show up that day. I had to explain how to install the glass and screen panels the way I needed them; helped hold one door in place while holes were drilled for hinges -- again because helper didn't show up. Neither of the two doors fits well and one of them leaks (the other is protected by a screened porch and not subject to rain). Fence seems sturdy and will do the job but doesn't look very good. Even the new pickets, posts and cross pieces don't all match. For some reason they used much larger posts for the fence on one side of the yard than for the other. For a section that was only repaired (not replaced), some of the old pickets that were reused had cracks or holes or old staples coming out. Also left some nails and screws sticking out of new pickets and posts. Hauled off the wood from the old fence but not the concrete dug out from the old post holes and, in general, didn't do the type of cleanup I expected. In addition to the concrete left behind, there were wood chunks and shavings scattered in the yard, driveway and patio, trimmed off pieces of plastic, old screws and nails, even a discarded saw blade. I'm going to have to rent a metal detector to make sure I find all of the nails in the yard and driveway.

I cannot attest to the quality of their work, as it unfortunately was never done. I desperately needed a section of fence repaired so our dog couldn't get out, and they came the next day and gave me a very fair quote. We hired them, and then they said they would do the work later that week. They ended up pushing us back for two weeks. When they finally said they would do it, they showed up, left to get materials, and never came back. It then got too cold to have the work done and I am still left with a broken fence. I'm sure their work is great quality, but their communication and responsiveness was very frustrating. I have already had to seek out someone else to do the job.
