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.

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.

Unfortunately, my fence has seen a few years of neglect by previous home owners. Recently, a dog we were dog-sitting decided to jump into our back fence knocking a section down. I reached out to Madrid Fencing and they responded quickly, and were able to fit me into their schedule the next day. Their worker arrived on time to inspect my fence. Recommended repairs to the fence to not only reattach the fallen section but also hopefully ensure that more sections don't fall/sag in the near future, and they were able to complete the work the same day for a reasonable price. I hope to at least get a few more years out of my current fence, but I will likely be going back to Madrid for my fence needs in the future.

Madrid Fencing recently did a fence for our small yard. After three quotes we went with Madrid because of price was within our budget and seeing the quality of work. Berenice exceeds expectations by being extremely responsive. She included us in every step of the process, answering any questions or concerns or issues we had along the way. I would 100% hire them again. We are extremely happy and all we need now is to stain our beautiful fence.

I want to select all 5 answers to the question "What do you like about working with Total Fence and Decking?", but the website won't let me. So I will list them here: 1. Work Quality 2. Professionalism 3. Responsiveness 4. Value 5. Punctuality Abel's Professionalism made Total Fence and Decking a pleasure to work with. His estimate was half of what others bid, and he and his crew started work at the time he said they would, in spite of the threat of rain. The site was left clean with no trace of the old fence. The only evidence they had been here was a beautiful stretch of fence with a new gate that opens smoothly, with no dragging against the ground (unlike the old gate).

I needed some fencing replaced and decided to give Al an opportunity to stop by and give a quote. I'm glad I did. Al is honest, easy to work with and did most of the work himself. Al also offered options that saved me money on the fencing I wanted installed. If you need a project done, give Al a call.

Well if I could check all 5 items of what I liked about working with Tiencken Family Fences, it would be all 5 choices given....i.e. Work Quality. Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, Punctuality. Maykell and his crew were remarkable. What a pleasure and a relief to finally have an opportunity to work with such polite and respectful professionals! We arranged to meet Maykell at the Home Depot to pick up the lumber for the fencing. Everything we arranged went extremely smooth and effortless. The quote to install this fence was extremely competitive and very fair. Maykell's quote was 4 - 5 times less than the quotes I received from several other big fencing companies. A crew of 5 installing a 110 Feet long fence also got the job done efficiently and in record time....under 4 hours!! And it looks so fantastic!! We had a gate from our old fence that we needed to rehang after the fence was up. The gate scraped along the concrete walkway when it opened and closed and unfortunately they cut a little too much off the bottom to avoid this happening. After expressing displeasure about the gate being too short because of concerns with past experience of snakes coming into our yard under that short gate, they were very accommodating to my needs. They remedied the problem by attaching another piece of wood to the bottom of the gate so that it would be as close to the ground as possible without scraping. Everyone was happy at the end of this job which has been a rare occurrence for us lately. I would highly recommend Maykell and his crew without hesitation.
