Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

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.

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 much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

Reviews for Baldwin fence professionals

Bruce did a substantial 6' wooden privacy fence around the entirety of my backyard. Instead of using pre-fab sections of fence, he cleared brush, measured and built the entire fence himself picket-by-picket. He was always on time, worked through crappy weather, and did it all for an extremely fair price. Very satisfied!

Gregg Moore and the guys at New England Wall and Fence did a terrific job with my backyard fence and gate. Instead of trying to sell me an expensive new fence to keep my two rambunctious dogs in the yard, Gregg figured out a way to modify and repair the existing fence and gate. He brought in new posts and straightened/reinforced everything that was out of alignment. The fence was repaired while I was at work the day after I signed the contract. They worked quickly and cleaned up the area when they were done. I'm so impressed, I'm going to use Gregg and NEWF to do some front sidewalk cementing for us in the Spring. Gregg and his company did everything for under $500.

I needed fencing to fully enclose my backyard (some fencing existed, but less than half of what was needed for a full enclosure). Josh from J.N. Lawn Care contacted me promptly on Thumbtack and came to scope out the project and give me an estimate. We also discussed rebuilding a separate retaining wall, but I couldn't do both projects at once. The fence looks good and was installed in only a couple days. In order to install the fence, two small trees had to be removed, as well as an old wooden treehouse/playset that was in the way, and the fence crew took care of that and hauled everything away. It's really great to be able to let my dogs outside and not have to worry about them running off -- very glad to have gotten this done!

I had Gregg and his crew out to remove an existing chain link fence and poured concrete wall and replace it with a pine privacy fence and block retaining wall. They did an excellent job. It took them about a week to complete the project and were a great crew to work with. I would highly recommend them for any hardscapes work you need for your home.

My project was a privacy fence in the backyard, about 225'. Bruce contacted me right away, came by the house to look at the project and gave me a quote right there. He was super responsive, let me know exactly when he could start, what he would be doing and updated along the way. Bruce and his partner showed up as promised and installed the fence without any issues. They completed the job quickly and cleaned up. The work is top notch, taking great detail in completing the job with great quality!

Gregg did an excellent job on my shadow box wood fence. He quickly responded to all of my requests via phone or email. He did everything we agreed to and was very attentive to detail. I couldn't be happier with his efforts.

He needs to stick to his proposed timeline. Fence posts should be straight and consistent. Hurricane clips should be placed in the same location on every post. Writing on the wood should face out or at least all the same direction. He was very responsive.

I had a wooden fence that needed replaced in my backyard. I messaged McCarthys’s for an estimate and received a response back within hours. The job was done professionally, promptly, and at a fair price that we had agreed upon! I would hire again and would highly recommend to others.

We had Bill build a fence for us around our property. The one star we gave him is because the work was completed, the fence seems to be well constructed, and his workers were nice and respectful. The missing stars are because Bill is terrible to work with, and, even worse, he built the fence so that one side of it is on our neighbor’s property by several inches, and he just left us with it. We gave him a survey of our property before he began to do any work on the fence, but he didn’t verify where he was building the fence. This would be alright if he owned up to the mistake and and agreed (in writing) to fix it if our neighbor complained, but instead he verbally agreed to it (though only after hours and hours of arguing about it), but put off signing anything (he kept telling me he would show up and then wouldn’t), until he eventually just changed his phone numbers so I couldn’t keep calling him. So, as a result of this, we are stuck in a situation where, if our neighbor complains, we will have to pay for his mistake ourselves or take legal action against Bill. Other than that, Bill is just hard to work with. We agreed to a date to begin construction, but then he called and wanted to do it earlier, before we had gotten the materials, so we had to scramble to get them. He cut down bushes without double checking with us, so I basically ended up staying home to babysit the work. We had to buy more materials near the end because he calculated what we’d need based on the rough estimate we initially gave him rather than his own measurements. At one point he said he would throw in some extra work for free, and then went back on it later. And even while the work was going on, he wasted a bunch of our time by talking to us about stuff that wasn’t relevant to the work. Bill kept claiming he gave us a good price on the cost of the fence. Given how much time we wasted dealing with him, and especially given that we are now stuck in a situation where we might have to fix his mistake at our own expense (or pay legal fees), I would not say that his price outweighs all this hassle. Ironically, he also kept pushing us to give him a good review. We’re writing this primarily to protect others from making similar mistakes with Bill.

John and his crew were so friendly and easy to talk to about our fence project. He gave us exactly what we wanted in an amazingly quick amount of time! I will absolutely be hiring them again for another project at a later date and highly recommending them to anyone we know looking to have similar projects completed! Photos are sections of the before 😩 and after 😁 👍🏻👍🏻!
