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.

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.

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 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.

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 do you strengthen a fence gate?

If you think your gate needs reinforcement, hire a fence repair professional in your area. Squaring up a fence gate may require adding corner brackets, installing a cable and turnbuckle, and cinching and tightening the cable to the appropriate tension. All of these repairs, as well as digging a new post hole, require expertise and know-how.

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.

120 linear feet of back metal fencing, with 3 gates. Guys were good, personable, quick to design and quote. Overall installation was good, but fit and finish was a bit subpar. After welding posts and panels there was a limited attempt to touch up paint, but appears to be only on the more people focused side. The external side of the fence had a decent amount of untouched/exposed/unpainted fencing parts.

Chris was very flexible, and was able to come put up my new fence, after removing the old one, the very next day after I hired him. His price was very reasonable, and the work was done to a high standard. He had even partnered with a gentleman that reused the old fence posts for other construction projects instead of filling up a landfill.

Robert and his team are absolutely fantastic. The fence turned out better than I could have ever expected. They were extremely responsive, answered any questions, and the quality of work is top-notch. Robert and the team will be the only company I use going forward for anything fence-related. I have attached a before and after photo. Don't hesitate at all to use this company, you will not be disappointed. I would give them 10 stars if this system would let me. Great Job!!!

Eric used a combination of existing and new materials to expand my fence gate to accommodate my yard tractor. He worked hard and long for just over five hours to complete the project. His attitude was pleasant and he was easy to talk to throughout the day. Great job!

Chris was FANTASTIC! He replaced 80' of wooden fence for me, and it looks excellent. Treated pine slats, brand new posts. He was on the jobsite early that morning and finished early afternoon, including cleaning up the site and hauling off the old pieces. I would HIGHLY recommend Chris. Fair price as well.

We so enjoyed meeting J and R who came out to give us a bid for a fence project. His bid was very competitive, he arrived when he said we would, brought samples and provided sound advice. We will be requesting another bid from J and R in the near future.

Thank you so much for the fencing job you completed for me. Your crew was very detailed oriented, professional and curtieous. I appreciate Diego for doing such a good job considering the rock he had to dig through to drop the post in. It was a pleasure working with you and your crew from the start to the completion. THANKS AGAIN!

Hired to install a gate in an existing fence. Chris was able to schedule the job within a couple of days. His bid included all parts so I knew the entire job cost. They did a nice job and were careful to clean up the area before they left. Very personable. I will hire again for any future projects.

Hire Kyle of Dechert Construction! He did a great job building a custom fence for us at a very reasonable price. He showed up on time and when he said he would. He worked well into the night to get our project completed on time. We already have him bidding out another job for us. Great experience with him!

Kyle and his crew did an excellent job. It was as fast.and efficient. They at all times kept me in the loop. I was pleased with the results.l have already started to give my recommendation to friends and family.as people in my community drove by they also noticed the high quality of work. If my old fence had been built like this I dare say it would have lasted a lot longer.he also left the job clean no clean up by me .once again thank you.

I gave Robert a big fencing job, after he kept fooling up after his bid. He stated that the job was complete while he wasn’t. I asked him to provide me with his W9 for me to issue him his 1099 tax form. He kept saying that he would provide it until he got paid and then he stopped answering my phone calls and text message. I would never hire a contractor who does not pay his share of tax!
