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.

Great experience working with Yesenia on a fence repair. Love my new rolling fence!

Concept Fencing did a superior job! They worked with me to help pick and choose the best, quality materials to fit my budget. Their "custom fence building" techniques, quality, and workmanship are reflected in every square inch of fence. I highly recommend Concept Fencing and will contract with them again.

I highly recommend Fence Investments. Greg was very helpful and responsive throughout the process. I always knew what was going on. He also made some suggestions that we would not have thought of that made the finished fence look great. He walked through with me once the fence was finished and had his team make any needed corrections/adjustments. I met with 4 other fence companies and am very happy with my selection of Fence Investments.

I hired Family First Fencing to replace 270 ln. ft. of wood fencing for a rental property in Farmers Branch. Ryan and his team was great to work with and did a fantastic job with the tear out and installation. Ryan was professional, responsive, accommodating, priced fairly, and completed the project on time. I would highly recommend Family First Fencing to others for their fencing needs.

I appreciate the level of professionalism that Sergio of North Texas Fence Services exhibited throughout the process. Especially after numerous fence companies cancelled last minute, with one cancelling claiming they don't come out to Forney after confirming my address the day before. Sergio came out the next day assessed the damage and instead of pushing me to build a whole new fence, stated that the fence is still in good condition, and recommended replacing the wooden post that have weakened over time. He installed new metal post for durability and reattached the fence to the post. This process kept the fence with the same look, durable, finished work in 2 days, and in turn saved me at least 1k in the process. I would recommend North Texas Fence Services to anybody.

Great job on the fence and even came back to change the stain color when wind conditions calmed down and it was ok to stain fence. Wife had decided on another color which they came back and did as part of the original bid. Very good work and we love the fence.

I am completely blown away by how my fence turned out! In a short amount of time, I went from a 67-year-old chainlink fence to a beautifully stunning, cedar fence in the back of my property. I have an added sense of security now. Thanks, Jimmy!

Go with Joe and his team at Fence Masters DFW!!
