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.

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 am extremely satisfied with my fences from Metropolitan Fence. We got a picket and a privacy fence. Richy did high quality work, was the best price and shot straight about how this would work. He has a high attention to detail and puts his over 20 years experience to good use. I would recommend Richy and Metropolitan without hesitation!

Communication is very poor. We received a quote and tried several times to reach him, but he would never call us back to install the fence.

Did a great job! My fence looks awesome and I was impressed how quickly it was done considering it was over 2k ft and went through some bedrock and a wooded area

I had them install just my posts with me suppling all materials. The price was great. I was just frustrating that I had to cut every board because there layout was really off. Especially the 12' gate inside dimensions I stressed needed to be within a half inch . it was 13' 1" inside dimensions. Since I was the one building the rest of my fence I was post off at times then I just said that what I get for not doing it myself. So it's my own fault.

It has been just about a year since I had my fence installed. Problem 1) The workers used to much pressure on the nail gun, making it so the nails were too deep, this has resulted in me having to fix about 1/3 of the planks and my dogs getting out several times over the year. Problem 2) Every gate installed has had issues of resizing. It is like the installers had 0 clue about making sure the fence could adjust due to weather, I have to gates outstanding for a fix and only one (the least important one) working right. Problem 3) Sure he provides a two year warranty, but if you read the fine print it means he will get around to fixing in within the next 2 years. My gate has been messed up for 3 months now, this last time he didn't even respond. Problem 4) He is constantly finding excuses to not come by, he gets sick more than anyone I know. Sure I am not paying him anymore, but he did this even when he was supposed to be doing the install. What he should have done: After seeing and confirming his help used too much pressure on the gun, he should have run down and re-nailed all of the planks instead of having to force me to fix them periodically and do my own checks. He should have scheduled a time to come fix my fence and actually fixed it. If he would have fixed it, I would not be reviewing him so harshly. I've given him months to fix it, respond, or do anything, and now I would rather pay someone else to do the job he was supposed to. I only wish I was being a drama queen, but really I didn't even call him when I fixed 10 planks in the first month. I've bought lots of screws to fix planks (400' fence) and had to redo literally about 1/3rd of them. I only called him when the gate was too messed up to work. He looked at the planks and confirmed what I told him, but instead of fixing them all, he only fixed the loose ones, then fix that gate. I contacted him again when I had another gate go bad, he looked at it, said he would come fix it, and never did. When my third gate wouldn't catch, I reach out and he never responded. That was about 3 months ago, I am now looking for someone else.
