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.

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.

How do you strengthen a fence gate?

If you think your gate needs reinforcement, hire a fence repair professional in your area. Squaring up a fence gate may require adding corner brackets, installing a cable and turnbuckle, and cinching and tightening the cable to the appropriate tension. All of these repairs, as well as digging a new post hole, require expertise and know-how.

Reviews for Huntersville fence professionals
Julia S.
Javier did a great job installing a 3 tier split rail fence. My fence installation was difficult because I have a steep slope in my yard and I wanted the fence to flow with the slope and not to step down slope. Javier and his team did a great job installing the fence with the flow of the land. I would highly recommend Javier.

We had a tree fall and break a section of our fence, and we needed a quick repair because we have dogs. Alex responded very quickly and was able to get the job completed within a few days of contacting him. Our fence has a scalloped edge and he was able to perfectly replicate it. I definitely recommend him, and we will be using him again for future fence needs.

Plaza Fence was a dream to work with. Manny reached out right away to schedule a visit and provide a quote. Two weeks later the project is complete and looks beautiful. The quality, value and experience is best in class. I’m a local Realtor and will be recommending Plaza Fence to all of my clients. Thank you so much!

Cannot say enough good things about Manny & Plaza Fencing. First, he was very helpful in giving us recommendations for fence placement in a yard with some tricky elevation. Then he helped us with the HOA approval process (amazing!). The price was good and they showed up on time and got the work done quickly. Would highly recommend him!

David was professional and responsive to our needs. He returned phone calls and emails promptly and quickly ghost our fence installed. He worked well with our HOA to get the best result that fit the guidelines. Compared to big fence companies his price was much lower and his timeline to complete the work was much more reasonable. We can not recommend him and his crew enough.

I highly recommend Don to anyone that is looking to build a fence. They did a phenomenal job in record time. I had to have a fence put in as soon as possible due to a handicap. They were respectful, courteous and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. He even helped me hang my hammock and moved my bbq put of the way since I couldn’t due to my back. You won’t be disappointed if you hire him!!

We had ~230 ft of split rail installed by Premier Fence. Installation finished up about 1.5 weeks ago and we have no complaints, everything looks good. Brian and his guys were great to work with! I had them move the hole for one post and they were happy to adjust it for me.

Alex and his team were excellent in every way. His quote was fair and he stuck to it. The work (fence install and gutter cleaning) is quality and was completed timely. He and his team were also very professional. Alex himself is very personable and flexible, but his entire team impressed me. They worked quietly, diligently and never left a mess. I have to say this was the best contractor experience I've had. I would definitely use him again.
