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.

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.

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. 

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.

Reviews for Houston fence professionals

They repaired a fence post that had broken and was causing my fence to lean over. Not only did they repair the one fence post they went the extra mile to confirm that the other fences posts were not broken. Happy to say that the fence survived this latest tropical storm and is standing tall.

Robert and crew did an amazing job on our fence. They matched it to our neighbors fence and it looks great. We ran into a couple issues with the neighbors shed being on the fence line but they were able to work around it and make the fence work with no issues. The crew’s communications was superb. Will definitely like to hire them again with other projects.

We had a great experience with Lopez Fence. Pretty happy with the quality of the fence, it looks great. The whole process since guys remove old fence and debris to the final installation of the fence was super easy and not stressful, which is very rare with contractors. The main guy Julio is very professional and stays in touch throughout the whole process. Definitely recommend this company! I would give 6 stars or if 5!

We had JAE come give us a quote for a fence install, because of the type of fence many other contractors turned us down or gave us the run around. JAE’s Team gave us a great estimate and we hired them on the spot. They got to work the same day and our fence looks great. I would definitely recommend JAE for all your fencing needs.

Berger Home Services built two sections of 8’ cedar fence in our yard to match a new shared fence with our neighbor. We also had Berger Home Services stain all of the fencing in a light gray Sherwin Williams stain. The end result is really beautiful. Thanks!

Jeremy and the Trinity Fence team did a fantastic job installing a fence in my backyard. Was extremely fast to come out and provide a quote - was there a day after I reached out. Was also very punctual arriving the morning he said he would start and completed the project in the timeframe we had discussed. From quote to start to finish the fence was built in less than a week while also dealing with rainy weather. The work product was also very high quality. We’re extremely happy with our new fence and I would highly recommend Trinity Fence Alliance.

Francisco and his helper did an excellent job making and installing gates for our existing wooden fence. Unlike other fence companies he did not try and pressure me into getting a totally new fence. He was very punctual and a pleasure to do business with, I would definitely use his services again.

I wanted a privacy fence by our pool and spoke with a few fence builders. Lonestar was the only one who showed up on site to discuss options, costs, and the overall plan. On build day, they showed up on time and worked hard to finish the whole thing in a single day. We love the fence, and highly recommend Lonestar.
