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.

Excellent work. Both our neighbors are interested and working out timelines in utilizing Workhorse Construction on near future fence replacement as well. Please excuse our landscaping modifications. We are in the process of removing a flowerbed along the back fence.

Despite a couple of complications on the property line with an older chain link fence John was reliable and got the fence completed. High quality workmanship for a fair price. If you are looking for an alternative to the big companies and their day laborers, give John a shot. 4/5.

Very happy with my new section of fence! Chris was punctual, responsive, and the fence quality is top notch. He also repaired a couple of old gates that now open, close, and latch with ease. I would definitely recommend and use him again.

Omar and his team did a get job replacing 12 posts in my fence. Very professional. Also, cleaned up everything. They left my yard cleaner than when they started. I recommend Lopez construction for all your fencing needs.

This review is long overdue, but I wanted to give major kudos to HomeRun Fencing for doing such a great job on my fence. Mike was SUPER responsive and extremely professional. He also stuck by his timeline. He stayed into the evening on the last day to make sure everything was finished just like he said it would be. I really appreciated that since I had to board my dogs during the installation. I would absolutely hire HomeRun Fencing again!

Dale replaced two fence posts and repaired the gate. The work looks great and the fence is up and gate is working again. Dale was very pleasant to work with and he communicated the material needs (wood, screws,etc). Dale's quote was very reasonable. Dale arranged to do the work promptly. I would definitely hire again!

Firewheel gave me an initial quote, which was better than all the others. Then, they stuck to that quote once they did the work. They alligned the fence very well. My yard has a slight slope and they made the fence follow the slope in a strait line. They used strong treated post. And they completed the job in the time frame that they said. started in the morning,..let it set, then completed the fence in the afternoon.. whole job complete by 3pm. They saw more work that needs to be done and made recommendations but did not "sales-push" me to spend more at that time. Very good job. I recommend them.

These guys are very nice and the fence they built is decent, but they suffer when it comes to time management, communication and follow through. We hired them at the beginning of April for a new fence with two side gates and double back gate. They guessed 2-3 days for the work. They were late the first day (arriving mid-day), then late again on the second due to a "hold up at the supply yard." This stretched the work to 4 days. Not only that, but they chopped down a tree to make their lives easier, but left it in my neighbor's yard for another week and a half until they returned to pick up the rest of the old fence. They also pulled up some decking on our pergola to make the fencing easier. They promised to put it back, but it's been over 6 weeks since they completed the fence and we paid in full, and they have yet to fix it. We found blocks of wood, nails and other materials left scattered in my yard and my neighbors yard. I have communicated with them several times but still have no timetable on getting the decking done, so I just cut ties with them and will have to handle it myself.

Overall a good experience. Work was very thorough and the fence and arbor look great. Communication before the job was a bit spotty, but the project started and completed when advertised.
