Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

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.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
  • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
  • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
  • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

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 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.

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

How much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

Frost Fence did an incredible job removing a split rail fence and replacing it with a cedar privacy fence. Tobias let me know when they would be starting and him and his crew were on time and right at work. They removed the old fence and had the new fence installed in 1 day. They were very diligent and detail oriented. I would HIGHLY recommend Frost Fence!

James and his crew did an amazing job on our new fence. We contacted Brutusdawg Fence through Thumbtack and James was here to give us a quote within a few hours. It took a few days to get our Gahanna fence permit and then the work was started. Our new fence has been installed and completed so fast we haven’t even unpacked our house in the time it took to get our new fence installed. We have the four rail- split wood stile fence with mesh. Very nice looking, sturdy fence. Highly recommend James and his hard working crew. Thanks so much, guys!

Dan and his crew were phenomenal to work with. Of all the fencing companies on thumbtack, Expert Fence was the most responsive and the most interested in receiving my business. He came out to evaluate the work site, stayed true to his original quote, and installed a beautiful fence with only a couple days notice. He installed 180 feet of fencing in less than a full day and went above and beyond my expectations with the quality of work and willingness to remove old materials from my property.

They provided me with a very reasonable quote. Although weather delayed installation by a couple of days, they made arrangements that were convenient and installed a gate that perfectly matched my fence. Now I have the privacy and security I wanted. Thank you!

What a fantastic experience! Received a few quotes over the summer but never pursued getting a fence.... until we got a new puppy 2 wks ago! Then it became an emergency haha! Received the quote from Brutusdawg’s and stressed the sense of urgency! Less than two weeks has passed and our fence was installed today! The fence looks great and was done super fast! We are very pleased with the work and the price too!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We had our fence installed late last summer and went with this company because their product looked good, they were very reasonably priced and they actually listened to what we wanted vs trying to up sell on various other products. The fence was installed in a day and the installation process went great and everything was cleaned up well. Our fence is low to the ground which was important to us because we have 2 small dogs and didn’t want them to be able to get out under the bottom. Waited a year to do our review to see how everything settled. Had a couple minor issues with the gate- which can be expected with a wooden fence. Company was very prompt and came out to inspect the issues on the first day I was available and it was fixed 2 days later- free of charge. Everything is working great!! I would highly recommend them for the quality of their work, their professionalism, and just our overall experience and satisfaction with their product and service. Thanks guys!!

My wife and I bought a new house and desperately needed a fence installed prior to moving in our 5 dogs. Due to a miscommunication between myself and Daniel, Daniel and his team started my project at 3:30 pm on Friday in the rain, promising only to get it set up for completion the next day due to the storm, which we would have been happy with. The guys went above and beyond to complete our fence that night while it continued to rain. I couldn't be happier with the fence and have many new neighbors comment on the job they did. I have and will continue to give our Expert Fence to anyone who asks.

James came out quickly to give me an estimate and started work just a few days later. He did a great job on my fence, was very professional and communicated with me through the process. He even helped me install a new door when someone tried to kick mine in. I highly recommend Brutusdawg Fence!! I could not be more pleased with my experience.

The salesman have me an estimate that was $1000 over what I considered a "medium to high" proceed estimate that I received earlier in the week. He then tried some very high pressure sales techniques by pretending to "get permission" to give me a special "one time low rate" of slightly more than the other (still reasonably high) estimate. When I said no, he proceeded to ask me why I didn't care about the quality of my fence. He basically tried to fence-shame me. This is the sleezy, used car company of fence installs.

Travis did a fantastic job installing our cedar privacy fence. He was very patient, answered all questions prior to starting the work. I received several quotes and his was the best, a very decent price. He is also a very nice guy and a true craftsman.

Hired Brutusdawg LLC to install a 6 ft wooden privacy fence around my yard. His estimate and availability were better than all of the others I had received. He finished my project in less than a week (would have been completed even quicker than that if it wasn't for rain) and did a great job. I'm super satisfied with his work. My boyfriend hired him as well to repair/replace parts of his fence and he is also happy with it.

Mid Ohio Contracting installed a wooden 6 foot privacy fence for my yard. They were very professional and had excellent communication. When they encountered some unforeseen issues, they called and told me and had solutions already ready to go. I would highly recommend them to friends and family.

An absolutely outstanding experience. Brutusdawg installed a 6 foot privacy fence, cut down trees, grounded out stumps, broke up and hauled away an asphalt basketball court and also painted our still standing metal fence. All of this was done in approx 2 1/2 days. A mere 11 days after hiring this company, all jobs were done and done well. They stayed on time, cleaned up all debris and were friendly and courteous. Would highly recommend James Bay and his crew.

James responded quickly and gave my neighbor and me a great price for replacing our shared board fence. He was very organised, provided a detailed list of supplies and gave us the option to purchase them ourselves. James didn't require a down payment in advance and was able to work around my schedule for the installation.
