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.

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 build a fence for me. As a single parent I could only afford to do it a section at a time. He did a great job quality work and I got a beautiful fence out of it. Anything dad first picture you can see the ugly old fence that'll be the next section I hire him to do.

I wanted to surprise my niece with a new fence while she was away visiting her mother. A young newlywed on a tight budget, their new home came with a fence that allowed her pups to escape. Jesus responded quickly, bid a fair price and started/completed the project in a timely fashion. We are all pleased with his work and would definitely use him again. Don’t hesitate to call Jesus for your fencing needs!

Outstanding workmanship, executed quickly while working around (and sometime in) some bad weather. We got a new back fence and gate that are beautifully constructed. The new gate is especially welcome. Jesus did a good job of keeping us up to date, and was also easy to work with setting things up and coordinating with us and our two neighbors who now have beautiful new fencing.

He did an amazing job. This is my second time having him help our family out with our different fences. The first time he helped us when a storm knocked our fence down. No one was giving us a quote and after I messaged Jesus he gave us a quote the next day. Our other fence was falling apart from age and our puppy kept escaping through it. His team was quick and the result was great quality work! My husband and I also think he is a great communicator. I recently recommended him to my family friends and they also were super pleased with their result as well. I highly recommend this company as a whole. Definitely will continue to use their service in the future. Thank you.

My recent experience with Sandrod fencing was incredible. The staff was very quick to respond with estimate requests and scheduling flexibility. Any issue that came up was immediately addressed and rectified to my satisfaction. I requested quotes for my project from 5 different companies, and Sandrod gave me the best bang for my buck. The quality of the work was top notch. I couldn't have been more happy with the results. Don't hesitate to put these folks to work for your next fencing need, you wont be sorry!

Very nice young men who were prompt at getting the job done in two days. We were very happy with the work they did building gates at either side of our house. Nice work matching up with neighbors fence that one side abutted up to.

Had a 105ft fence and a 4.5 ft gate that both needed to be replaced. Time between initial contact requesting a quote and when the given was a very short time. Great value, very responsive to messages, and checks in regarding material inquiries. Highly recommend and would definitely hire again.

Jesus and his crew showed up on time and ready to work. 3 hours into the project we had to cancel the fence installation due to property line disputes. Jesus was extremely patient with us while we tried to figure out the issue, and in the end we had to cancel the fence. We offered compensation for their time and Jesus told us that we could pay him what we thought was fair. He was very kind about the entire thing even though it must have been terribly frustrating. We would highly recommend him and his crew and if we ever have a project like this again we’ll think of him first to do the job.

He said he would try to be at my house Friday to start building my fence but no guarantees, he said he would definitely be there Saturday. Not only did he show up Friday but he got it done that day, a full day earlier than planned! Nice guy and good work.

JHernandez Construction was our first choice to install a "good neighbor" fence at an investment property of ours. Their price was competitive and all communications were timely and clearly stated. We were very pleased with the quality of the installation. They made sure that they were meeting our expectations by double checking any possible questions. We strongly recommend them!

I LOVE it! The price was $1000.00 less than my other 2 estimates! I will refer him to everyone I know. Also his employees were hard working and very nice.
