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.

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.

Contractor said he needed cash which was a red flag. End results were an oversprayed garage door, fence poles and grass with a streaked fence with his mess left for me to clean up. Unprofessional is putting it mildly.

The team works swiftly and builds an excellent quality fence. I cannot begin to express what a joy it was to work with someone who was honest and trustworthy. I recommend King of Kings, not only because of their standard of excellence, but because the cost was very reasonable.

I found King of Kings fencing here on Thumbtack.com and after reading between the lines in KOK's reviews I requested a quote; which would require a visit. The city sent me a letter about my leaning fence (what about my neighbors sagging fences??) and I needed the work done fairly quick. I do this kind of work and lets say I find most contractors pathetic... lacking in work ethic, punctuality, cleanliness and service of their installation, if necessary. Rico arrived on time and ready to assess the work for an accurate quote. After a brief discussion of what I wanted he suggested a plan: 12' steel gate to replace the 2 10' sagging gates. He calculated materials and labor. The price seemed reasonable to: 1 disassemble existing fence, 2 dig around existing poles, straighten them and pour cement around existing cement to secure the posts to the ground, 3 install 4" steel posts for the steel framed wooden gate, 4 build and install gate, 5 install new pressure treated higher quality wood than was currently in place. 6 clean up. 7 GET PAID. Rico arrived on time on the date scheduled to begin. They worked in the intense heat to break down the fence, fix the lean and reinstall the gate and fence. He said 2 or 3 days, I guessed 2 max and they were done in 1.5 days. They finished the work, it looked great and they GOT PAID. A little minor tweak was required on the gate, not due to installation but due to the settling ground. So, he came back quickly and adjusted the gate. I said GET PAID twice. This is important. Why do contractors ask for money before they've finished the job? Materials cost aside, $ should never be asked for until the job is complete. If you pay before the job is done, the work, well, it has been my experience that I have to fix & finish someone else's sloppy work. Rico arrived on time and worked. It wasn't his sit around lazy time where my job was an inconvenience to his phone and other activities. I hired King of Kings to fix my fence and they actually did just that...FIXED the Fence! My Pet Peeve (you want a Ferrari for the price of a Hyundai!): 1. Unlike my House Leveling Contractor - that when I pointed to the breaks in my sheetrock in the house and said, I want that fixed, and I paid the House Leveling Contractor thousands of $$$s to fix the un-level house and then a year later them come back and said the work they did was not intended to fix the very reason I hired them. I still have broken up sheetrock and was told this week to go ahead and fix the ceiling sheet rock but not the walls.. Hey, that sounds like. two big jobs instead of one to fix the very thing that the work you decided to do did not fix... LOL. 2. My Gutter Contractor - I hired a gutter contractor to fix the sagging gutter in the front of the house. We discussed brackets and mounts and how it was going to be fixed. They crew came out, installed a sagging gutter with no brackets I had emails would be installed and also gutters that did not even work. I have movies if you'd like to see. They were so pathetic. I had to make them come out 5 times ( I have 5 sets of videos) and would not pay them until they at least made the gutters functional. Ever heard of a level gutter crew?? Why do I mention my bad experiences with other Contractors to review the great work King of Kings did?? It is just they actually did a good job unlike a lot of contractors and in these reviews it is the details that I hope make you think Rico and King of Kings Fencing can do a good job for you. I appreciate his help and my nice fence!

I love my fence! I would recommend Terra vista designs to anyone and everyone. Daniel Black and Brandon Askins did a great job! They came out and gave me a quote, stuck to their time line. Daniel and Brandon are very knowledgeable and professional. We have already hired them for more landscaping work on our new home.

Taj followed up quickly to get our address to come out an access the fence we need to be replaced. He came out on the 06/10/20 to our home, said he would follow up with an estimate, this was on June 10. We have not heard back from him and I have followed up twice, still no reply. Not likely to recommend or use this company in the future. Communication is not good.

Candido Rico was hired to finish our fence and piece together what another contractor failed to do. He came and estimated a fair price for the work. We appreciated his professionalism and work quality. It restored our faith in contractors. He did a wonderful job and was very efficient and knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He did not stop until the job was done and was worth the cost. I would definitely recommend his services and would use him again.
