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.

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.

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 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 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.

How do you strengthen a fence gate?

If you think your gate needs reinforcement, hire a fence repair professional in your area. Squaring up a fence gate may require adding corner brackets, installing a cable and turnbuckle, and cinching and tightening the cable to the appropriate tension. All of these repairs, as well as digging a new post hole, require expertise and know-how.

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.

I hired them to replace sections of my stockade fence. The work when it was done was good. But communication and follow through were terrible. The worst part was that I paid him when the fence was in place but the old fencing had not been removed. Numerous calls and texts over the next two and a half weeks (always initiated by me) got nothing but excuses. The fence is still there and I am dealing with it myself after paying for it's removal. My advice is to avoid this company and if you are already dealing with him refuse to pay until EVERYTHING is done.

Dustin was very prompt in responding to my request for a quote. He came out on a Friday took pictures and provided an estimate later that night. He was able to schedule my job within his current work and was out on Monday. I’m was very pleased with the estimate and scheduling process. Workmanship meet all my expectations and my fence gates function better than ever. I highly recommend their services.

To say I'm disappointed in Back40 Contracting and Construction LLC would be an understatement. Approximately 2 months ago, I sought to have the mostly withered away wooden fence with gates on my property replaced with vinyl. I sought quotes from 2 different vendors before coming across Kyle of Back40 on Thumbtack. He seemed knowledgeable, experienced and honest, and 69% of his 29 reviews were 5-star ratings. Seemed like a good idea at the time, until it wasn't. On September 15, 2022, I hired Kyle to start the project. He asked for a deposit of $890.62, which I paid via CashApp. He informed me that the project would begin on September 18, 2022. On September 18, 2022, Kyle informed me that he'd for certain start the following day. The following day, Kyle informed me that he did have the materials yet. On September 30, 2022, I followed up with Kyle, and he informed me that the materials still had not arrived. On October 3, 2022, Kyle informed me that the shipment would not arrive until the next week. And finally, on October 13, 2022, Kyle informed me that the materials had arrived, but that he was unable to do the job because he broke his leg. The good news was, Kyle insisted on refunding my deposit, via CashApp, which I accepted. But he didn't. I followed up with Kyle on October 27, 2022, November 4, 2022, November 6, 2022 and November 9, 2022, receiving excuse after excuse, but no refund. I filed a dispute on November 13, 2022, in which Kyle agreed to resolve by refunding me by November 21, 2022, but guess what? Yeah, you guessed it. He didn't. Kyle informed me that my money will be sent back to me, but that it just hadn’t come in yet. He said A LOT of things at this point, but my money is nowhere to be found. He said he planned on paying me out of his pocket, but fell short. I informed Kyle that if he fell short, paying half now and half the next week would at least show a sign of good faith. I received no response. It's evident that that money is gone. On a professional note, breaking your word and repeated excuses show a poor work ethic, an unprofessional demeanor and is simply bad for business. On a personal note, it really bothers me when someone steals someone else's hard earned money. Lesson learned... Ordinarily, I would or would not recommend an individual as it relates to a specific job in which I hired him/her, but due to the nature of this matter and the lack of integrity involved, I can not, in good conscious, recommend Back40 for any project. You'd be gambling on whether they'd keep their word and/or take your money without completing the job.
