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.

Jesus made it easy to fix our rotted wooden fence poles that blew down in the storm. He worked quickly and efficiently to replace the 2 posts and restore the integrity of the fence. I plan to hire him to replace the rest of the fence in the near future.

Marco, with Mendez Home Improvements, responded very quickly when I sent an inquiry about removing an old fence and installing a new one. He was polite, punctual and offered great recommendations on the type of fence to install. His estimate was accurate and affordable. My old fence was removed and the new privacy fence was installed fully all in one day! I very highly recommend Mendez Home Improvements and will definitely procure their services again when we’re ready to install our next fence! Thank you!!

They installed two fences for us. We needed one that didn’t block the view from our backyard. Marco helped us plan the perfect fence and we love it. I highly recommend their work.

Ricardo was great to work with! VERY competitive bid, the work was done on time and looks great. He was willing to work with us on this project as it was done in two parts. The posts had to be set first, pavers placed around them, then he came back to finish the fence. There were no surprises in the final bill and we're very pleased with the gate & fence. I would highly recommend Sandrod Fencing.

Drew did an excellent, and fast, job of removing 110' of old fence helplessly tangled in thick ivy - clearing the way for a beautiful and modern picture frame fence. A consummate pro, working with Drew was a top notch experience. A solid recommendation.

I’d like to select all: quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality! Allyn and crew rebuilt my fence in 1 day for a very reasonable price. They were all very friendly, respectful, responsive, and hard working. They reused as much of my existing fence and gate as possible to reduce cost. Allyn welded part of my gate that was broken, making it open and close much more easily. There was one section of fence that was not quite as level as I wanted. I texted Allyn, and Mike, Dan, and one other crew member (I’m sorry, don’t remember name) came out the next day and fixed the issue. Now my fence is perfect! I highly recommend this company for your fence-building/replacing needs. Christie Call

Ricardo and his team were amazing. They finished a job very quickly here at my house and did a fantastic job. They even noticed we had a lot line post and adjusted the fencing posts in case we ever needed to move a slat. I would have never even thought of that. They were fast, professional and cleaned up everything after they finished. I would hire them with no hesitations for any future fencing needs I have. My puppy is so happy he has a safe secure fenced yard he can play in! Thanks Ricardo!

Julio made the process comfortable and easy, he was much more engaged then other contractors who came to look at the project. The fence is absolutely beautiful and it changes our whole house. He was great about asking my opinion on certain areas of the fence before he started it. The most impressive aspects about Julio and his company is the efficiency, professionalism and quality. He also was great at building the fence around our sprinkler system, some of the sprinklers were “almost” impossible to work around but he did it and it came out perfect. Thank you Julio and I recommend him for your next project!

All of the above quailities apply to Jesus and his crew. Jesus provided a detailed bid at a reasonable price. He demonstrated excellent attention to detail in the sales process as well as in the building of the fence. He is very easy to talk with and takes great care to see that the customer is satisfied. He and his crew are meticulous, effecient and obviously take great pride in their work. We easily can describe our fence as a work of art!!! We would strongly recommend Jesus and his crew for any project they would take on. It was a total pleasure to have Jesus and crew build our fence. Rob and Mollie
