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.

I was very pleased by the fence staining. Candido responded quickly to give me a very good quote and a couple of days later do the job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for value and a nice looking fence stain.

The fence looks good but an old post was used instead of all new post and it was never confirmed to have him come out and I came home in the afternoon the next day and the fence was finished. What was communicated was I will call you if I decide to go with you.

Absolutely delighted with the entire experience with Cade and his team - from quote to installation of my beautiful new fence. Everything they committed to they followed through on. I have had neighbors come by to comment on how incredible the fence looks. I will be doing business with them for other work I have, and highly recommend that anyone else needing a service their company provides that you proceed with absolute confidence they will do a high quality job.

We hired Cesar / JC Fencing to install security cages around 7 air conditioners at our new church. Though he was low bidder of 4 bids, he arrived at the site as promised and worked steadily until it was done. Though it took him a day longer than he expected, he was friendly and professional to the end. Then when we discovered a problem with our site, we worked together to find a solution. The quality was good and we are pleased with his work. I would welcome an opportunity to hire him again, and I highly recommend him to others needing fencing installation or repair. He is a great guy to work with.

Latch on wooden fence was broken and gate wouldn’t close. Contacted Firewheel on Friday at 5:00 received prompt reply. Technician arrived on time and put on replacement part. Also tightened other screws that were loose. Highly recommend and would definitely use them again.

I couldn't find a better team to replace our fence. JCruz is reliable, professional, honest and not less important: a God fearing young man. This is the best team I could hire for this project and they will definitely stay around for a while helping us with other improvements we need to do. It is good to say all this with a 100% satisfaction of a job well done, with a more than fair price and in the times they planned. Thank you!

Carlos and his crew installed my fence and it looks great. We love it! From my understanding talking with him, he is ready to get his business on a flourish. He has the right attitude and very good help. He's very attentive to detail and being on time to complete the job. His willingness to work and do the job to please his customers is an asset that will hopefully get him more business. I would certainly recommend Carlos because the young man does his job the way he says he will to suit his customers.

Lowest bidder of 4. Quality was good. A few issues were easily resolved. Men were professional and good workers. Only real issue was their scheduling. Twice said they were coming at 9AM and twice showed up in the afternoon. Said it would be done in one day - took parts of three days. But we were very satisfied overall. They offered to use our paint to paint the fence at no extra charge instead of us painting it afterwards, so that was a nice plus. We would be happy to use them again. We would recommend them to others.
