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.

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.

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.

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. 

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 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.

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.

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.

I recently purchased a home in Lake Oswego. It’s a beautiful lot but there was no fencing and I have two dogs. Our main concerns were the quality of the fencing and the security of my dogs. I looked through several fencing companies on Thumbtack and noticed that ECO Fencing and Decking LLC had excellent reviews. I contacted Danny and he came out the next day to discuss the project with me and my husband. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and helped us decide how to plan our fencing. I received an estimate from Danny and in order to do my due diligence I asked two other companies for estimates and they were all in the same ballpark. But we felt really comfortable with Danny so we decided to proceed. My other big concern was that we were going to be out of town for most of the project and I really wanted to make sure that my neighbor was happy with the process. I introduced Danny to my neighbor and they hit it off and Danny was the perfect ambassador while we were away. He even looked after our house while we were gone and sent me photos of the progression of the project. It was a tough project because they had to clear bamboo and dig out large rocks in order to install the posts and fencing. When we got back to town and saw the fences in person (hog wire fence in front and cedar panel fence with lattice on top in back) we couldn’t have been more thrilled and impressed! They were beautiful and I could tell that Danny used the highest quality materials — right down to the beautiful and sturdy hardware on the gates that were perfectly tight and secure. He even made sure to keep the fence close enough to the ground to keep my smaller dog from getting out. We were so happy with the project that we've hired Danny and his team for other projects around the property and look forward to his help installing a deck and gazebo for a hot tub! It’s rare to find a company that is friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy and has such a wonderful work ethic, attention to detail and pride of workmanship and creating beautiful spaces. –Amy F.

Turn U Green was pretty much on time and had all materials for the repairs. The crew worked very hard to make available and remove the three fence posts. I'm a bit disappointed that a couple of the fence panels were not eactly returned to their original positions. Also one of the posts is clearly not plumb (vertical). Kinda picky but after all of the great hard work they put in the finished product isn't above averate or great.

John and his crew build 111 feet of cedar privacy fence for me. Quality built, when he said he would at the price he quoted. Very professional and nice to work with. Already engaged him for the next project, window replacement.

Lloyd was hard working, on time, clear, rapid response, and worked quickly. Everything was almost as agreed to at a very low price. There was one detail that did not happen. We discussed the concrete being above the dirt level with the concrete sloping away from the post to help with water shedding away from the post. This helps the post not rot as quickly... This detail was not done as requested. Honestly everything else was so great and low cost that I am still very happy. He has obviously made a lot of fences and knows how to work quickly and solve problems on the fly! I am guessing that he has to really watch his time to keep the price as low as he does, so it makes sense that the concrete was not done right. My neighbor added extra concrete to get the result we wanted, and it all worked out!
