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.

We had a great experience with Anthony and his crew! He fixed up our fence and extended it after taking out some old chain link fence that had seen better days. After the fence, he built us a beautiful deck that perfectly fits our backyard and our lifestyle. Thanks Anthony!

I really needed some fence put in and right away. I called the big fence companies and I would have had to wait months. Tony came out and quickly got to work and for less than the big companies bids. The quality was top notch, and I will be forever grateful for the speed with which the job was completed. I highly recommend him.

Josh and his team were professional, efficient and I ended up with a beautiful fence. Josh consulted on and walked me through every step of the process. He answered all my questions (even silly ones) and worked to finish the fence as scheduled (even with possible weather coming). He provided me with an estimate and informed me of any additional costs, like renting a concrete saw, before he made any changes. The final number was super reasonable and was the estimate + unplanned equipment expenses. My fence is beautiful and has finished my yard. I highly recommend Josh and Fresh Perspective.

Clint was great to work with. He showed up on time, was friendly and professional. He sent us a bid for the work we discussed promptly and again showed up on time and prepared when completing the job. The work he did on our fence was fantastic! Would hire him again! Great job!

Josh was amazing. He answered all my questions and walked me through every step. He went above and beyond clearing the brush for the fencing and hauling it away. He, and his workers, loved my dogs and didn't mind if they came out to say hi every day. I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.

Can't say enough about the excellent job that Josh and his partner at Fresh Perspective did on our fence. They answered any questions I had along the way, and addressed any concerns. Finding a great contractor seems hard to do these days, but these guys definitely did a professional job. I will absolutely use Fresh Perspective on any future projects, and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again!

I had fence badly in need of repairs and steps from deck that had become unsafe. Cody and Joe did a great job assessing what needed to be done and getting the job completed. Cody kept me in constant communication while we were planning the job and during the multi-day construction. Parking on my street is very tight, and the weather was horrible, but they did not complain at all about the circumstances. I am planning on re-hiring them to replace the rest of the deck.

I was hesitant to hire someone that I knew nothing about and found on the internet BUT what a find Tony is!! He installed a 6ft privacy fence for me and not only is it beyond amazing workmanship - it was done in record time. He had it up and finished before I could even get most places to come out and just give me a quote. He is super trustworthy, showed up when he said he would and did everything exactly as promised. I couldn't be happier. I now have Tony coming over to quote more work for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have work done!!!

I don’t know how he gets good review. He is rude and add extra charge that we never discuss about. He quoted for materials and labor but at the end charged $150 for debris removal without asking. On top of that he added $75 “service charge” for “provide tool to customers location and for him to go pick up materials. Was not on time. The photos showed what he left us with. When I discussed about it. I told him I would pay for his lousy job but will not pay for the debris removal, he threatened to tear the fence down. Threatened to call a cop for what we never discussed about. Ridiculous. It has always been dramatic conversations with him. He is rude and lash out a lot.
