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.

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 had 2 sections of fence removed and replaced. Lloyd was very easy to work with and flexible especially since we had to coordinate with 2 of my neighbors. He crafted beautiful fences that blend right in with all the older fences around them. I will definitely call him back for any future fencing needs or other general handyman work.

Our beautiful new 356 ft fence and 2 gates was just completed. If you need a high quality, well built fence and gate look no further. Jesus and his crew are professional, experienced and knowledgeable. They communicated clearly, arrived on time, completed the project when promised and cleaned up when finished. The workmanship is excellent and exceeded our expectations. Our fence connects to 6 of our neighbors and they are all happy with the new fence. We enthusiastically recommend JHernandez Construction for your fencing needs.

What a great group of guys! John was great to work with. I contacted him on a Thursday, he came by on Saturday, have me an estimate on two horizontal fences, which was so reasonable... HALF the price for more fence then anyone else who have us a quote. He and his team started the fences and had them done in less than a week AND pulled a bush for free. The fence looks great, the gates are wonderful and we finally got our dream fence at an an amazing price! I can't wait to call John again for more fencing and house remodel needs. Don't look any further, A&C Innovative made our fence dreams come true, let them do the same for you!

Hugo did an amazing job on my fence and was very affordable compared to some other quotes I received. When bidding out the fence he gave me pricing for three different styles of fence to help me decide what to go with. His team came in and finished 117ft of fence in just two days and it looks awesome. They also were careful not to trample any plants which I appreciated a lot!

Our fence is beautiful, and was a fair price. We had a couple of little issues with the neighbor's side of the fence, but Drew was very responsive and came right back out to fix them.

Jesus and his team replaced an ugly red fence with a new horizontal fence. I love it! Jesus was extremely responsive and took the time to give me quotes on several options. He was extremely easy to work with and got me on his schedule quickly! They left my yard clean and tidy. During the install, Jesus stopped to point things out to me and ask my opinion on things. The fence took two days. I am really pleased with the fence and Jesus!

Rick and his staff were excellent! Most fence companies give you a run around on even scheduling an estimate. Rick was prompt to schedule an estimate, very honest and reasonably priced, and much more reliable than any other fence company I tried to work with. He has a busy schedule but was the most readily available and did an excellent job! We love our new fence and gate and will definitely call Sandrod again if we have more fencing needs!
