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.

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.

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 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 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.

Chris, Todd, and the other men who helped install our 6 ft privacy fence did a great job. They worked quickly and efficiently, even through some bad weather. They cleaned up when they were finished, and the fence looks great. They were attentive to details, especially when it came to the fence's purpose (for example, this fence was built to keep my dogs in, so I needed the bottom as low to the ground as possible). I would recommend Extreme Green for any fencing project, and I wouldn't hesitate to contact them in the future for other home repairs or improvement.

There are so many facets to this project that just were not right. I have reached out to James Frye, the owner and he will not respond. Several of my posts that were "concreted" into the ground are loose. My gates have never worked right. Frye has been out several times to "fix" them however they are not right. In an effort to get them to swing properly they cut off part of the fence near the ground and it's very uneven and looks horrible. Several of my boards came loose and I have had to nail them back in. Frye Construction leaves a mess after they claim to be finished with the project. They left tools and scrap wood laying around. I just wanted to have my fence done right. The install was in May 2017 and it's now December 2017. I spent $5,800 on this fence and although it's a competitive price point James Frye Construction is NOT a fence company despite claiming to hand craft each piece and custom build my fence.

I had a privacy fence damaged in recent storms and these guys were perfect for the job. They were polite, on time, hard working, and the results were beautiful. Not only does this fence look a lot better than the last one but I have no worries about it coming down from anything less than hurricane force winds.

I'm very happy with my fence... 6 foot wooden privacy was exactly what I wanted. I went with this company because they gave me the best estimate, and I'm so glad I did. The fence is tight, sturdy, made with individual planks (not the pre-fab boards), and the appearance is great. I would highly recommend FTYF!

Initial contact and visit for quote were outstanding. Communication was lacking after that. Scheduling was difficult and the job took longer than planned. Communication regarding payment is also poor. The fence is average materials and craftsmanship.

The team was amazing. In a COVID world fencing supplies are not as easy to come by. But this team kept us posted (haha) on what was missing and as soon as they had all materials the job was done and done well. Would definitely recommend!

Brad did a great job building my fence, and also fixing my deck. He was very concerned with the safety of the structures and doing the job right. He listened and made sure he completed the job the way I wanted it to look. I am very pleased with the work!

Brad came out for a estimate for a fence. Did a great job due to weather complications for finishing. He even came back and pressure wash the mud the rain splattered on to the fence at no charge. As well had him pressure wash the patio,sidewalk and driveway. He also built a custom shelf on top of the fireplace for dvd, cable box. And did some electrical work. As well took time out to help me shop for some new lighting for my place And repaired pipe that had burst. I would recommend him for a single project or to have one person to handle all your work. He was even trustworthy to work with out being home. Already recommended him to my neighbors.
