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.

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

Josh Warren of Josh Of All Trades came to my home Sunday 1/14/18 to repair my gate latch. I was very pleased with the work that he did and the time that he took. I let him know that I will contact him in the spring for other outdoor projects that I have

John was professional, smart, personable, and great to work with all around. He listened to our ideas and gave suggestions to ensure that our vision and the reality would work together. In the end, he installed a small basketball court in our backyard (which is awesome!), repaired a large backyard fence and added reinforced gates, which had been poorly installed by someone else, and replaced front porch and step railings. John and his team are very busy--they made time for us, and the whole project was completed within a few weeks of getting an estimate. Highly recommended.

I don't think I've ever had an experience with a contractor as seamless and pleasurable as this one! Brandon was fantastic as he installed a new section of privacy fencing around our yard. He was understanding about several changes we made to our request (and our timeline) and he was always low on price. The fence went up in just a couple days and is much more sturdy and well built than we expected, with post holes dug deep and a high quality gate. We also hired him for some repair work on our deck, and it was also done in a short period of time and looks great! I highly recommend this company to anyone else looking for a fence or handyman work.
