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.

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.

Zach B.
After choosing Eric and Rock Hard Fence to install a new fence around my back yard, they were very accommodating and scheduled around my needs. Once scheduled, RHF worked through the rain and cold weather to make sure the fence was installed properly and on time. The beginning to end experience was very enjoyable, painless, and the fence looks great. I would highly recommend to anybody interested.

Tim did a wonderful job on fixing my fence. It began with a very detailed quote for the project and a reasonable price. A day was selected for the job to begin and he and his helper got here on time. They discovered some other problems and corrected them and rebuilt a good portion of the fence. They did not charge more than what was quoted. The fence looks great now. I strongly recommend them for doing any work that you might need.

Eric and team were a model of professionalism. They arrived on time and completed the project on schedule, despite a few unforeseen issues. Our fence was a bit tricky in places but, all the work met our expectations. Other neighbors have since asked for his contact information. I would recommend Rock Hard Fences without hesitation.

Top notch in customer service, creativity and quality Rock Hard Fence provides one of the best contractor experiences we’ve ever enjoyed. Within minutes of placing our project on the internet, owner Eric Kolpack responded. Within a week, we had met with him and a plan was created composed of many of his professional suggestions and creative solutions. The project involved a 6-foot trellis topped fence, two gates – one trellis and one to house the air conditioners and a panel to place between garages. Each time we contacted Eric, he responded within minutes. And, he was always on time. The crew, brother Adam and their friend Dave, spent three days installing the fence and gates. They knew what they were doing and approached each step of the project with expertise and teamwork. The fence was installed board by board (no panels). In addition to the fence, we also wanted some creative items: an arbor over the main gate and cat perches in the crabapple tree. Enter Adam who has his own company, ABK Custom Exteriors. By fall, he will come on site and design and build these two items. Adam also preps and stains fences and will provide us with this service as well when the wood is ready. And we must mention Dave Amoia, a contractor in his own right, whose problem-solving abilities and wry humor totally compliment the brothers Kolpack.

I called on a Monday morning to schedule an in person quote for installing a vinyl fence for my backyard. Joe was able to come out a couple hours later and give me a quote on the spot. I thought the price was fair. What was even better is that Joe said they could fit me in the following Tuesday. The job was done by Wednesday afternoon. The fence looks fantastic. I am very pleased with the quality of the work, the professionalism of Joe and his crew and the fast scheduling and installation.
