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.

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 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.

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 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.

They built me a 6 foot wooden privacy fence with 2 gates. The communication was excellent and they were great to work with. I had a good quality fence built at a good price and am very happy with my choice to use them. I am looking to possibly use them for future projects also because of the great experience.

Troy did our fence job on time and on budget. He was reliable in doing it when he said he would, and completed the job quickly.

Shane helped fix our fence that blew down during a recent wind storm that required three posts to be re-installed and then to attach the fence. It was very challenging because of the amount of concrete used in the last installation of the post that was unusually much but he plugged away and remedied the problem! He did everything as he promised and appreciate his work and efforts. We'll use his services again! Thanks again Shane!

We are SO happy that we decided to hire Well Rooted Gardens to install our wooden fence! We did tons of research on other companies, but WRG had overwhelming positive reviews with only one 4 star review. Joel was so prompt and professional throughout all of our communication (email, Thumbtack messaging, and in-person) and also provided knowledgeable answers for my many questions. He filed a permit with the city (as any good contractor would do), but also kept us informed on the status of our pending permit. After reviewing our property and comparing it against the city’s lot lines, our property lines looked off. Instead of just installing the fence and crossing his fingers that the city’s lot line map was correct, he recommended we contact a surveyor to verify our lot lines before moving forward. We appreciated that he wanted to install our fence the RIGHT way, and took steps to ensure we wouldn’t have any issues now or in the future. Joel estimated installation would take 2-3 days and he was exactly right. Other fence installation companies can take weeks or months for installation because they use one crew to install the posts, and another to install the boards. That’s absolutely not the case with WRG - Michael (fence crew leader) and his small crew completed the entire project in 2 days. Not only we were blown away with how quickly they worked, but also their fine craftsmanship and professionalism. We wanted the fence to touch the side of the house, but had a drain pipe and a retaining wall in the way. Before installation, I told Michael my concern and he quickly assured me it wasn’t a problem. His solution (photo) was great! We also appreciate how straight the fence is and how the top of the boards line up, despite being on a slope (photo). Michael even upgraded our gate for free to include the metal cable because he thinks it’s better and will last longer (photo). Overall, I’m not sure who is happier with our fence, us or the dog! We highly recommend Well Rooted Gardens for any of your landscaping needs. Thanks again Joel, Michael and team!

Troy did an excellent job in replacing my fence and building a shed. He kept me updated on the cost throughout the job and showed up when he said he would. Thanks Troy!

I hired Chad and Tracey Construction to repair a fence that was badly damaged following a storm. They reached out right away and provided me a quote and scheduled the work right away, which I appreciated. The work was mostly good except the one issue I explain below. I would have given a higher rating except that they told me I needed new fence posts due to the movement of the former posts, and explained that my fence wouldn’t be covered by their warranty otherwise, if for example, it fell over. I agreed to pay for them to install new posts as a result. After Chad and Tracey finished the project, before they even left my driveway, I paid them for the work, which may have been my mistake in retrospect. When I checked the posts while I was staining the new fence the next day, I noted that the posts moved more than I expected and similar to how the former posts moved. I called Chad and Tracey and I explained my concern and asked if they would to return to confirm the posts were secure. It’s been a month and they still haven’t been out to check despite committing to come out a few times. It’s frustrating because they required immediate payment, and I provided it, and now I feel like they have no incentive to return. If they come out and check, I’ll update my rating of course.

Unfortunately I can only select 3 items instead of all areas to like about Bigfoot Fencing. It is rare to have an individual and company you find that completes a job, smiles when changes come and is a joy to have work on your project. Knows how to tackle a job and completely cleans the area after they are done. I can not believe you will be unhappy in selecting this firm.
