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.

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.

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.

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

Outstanding service repairing a 6ft wood fence. 90 feet of the fence blew down in a windstorm last month. James and his crew were friendly, professional and efficient. They replaced several posts and repaired the sections. They were so respectful of my and y neighbors property, and so clean, its like they were never here! Look forward to hiring them again!

Cam did a great job on my fence repair. He answered my inquiry in less than a day, got out to give me an estimate the same day, came out a few days later, and finished the job in about four hours at a reasonable price. In addition, he is friendly and personable. If you have a fence project, I would highly recommend Cam.

It was an excellent experience working with Brutusdawg LLC. I cannot thank them enough for their quality service and great work. We are surely pleased with the outcome. Originally hired to repair my 20 year old chain-link fence, Brutusdawg LLC has such a large array of services offered that they also ended up repairing my chimney on the spot. They were as fast as could be and the TLC spent on that stubborn fence really showed that they cared. As I watched them, they were very professional in how they worked and without question, I would highly recommend Brutusdawg LLC for your next project. This won't be our last!!

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.

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.
