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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

Robert and his crew definitely exceeded my expectations. I wanted someone who was detailed oriented, priced well and had great customer service. Robert came to look at my fence line and went over all the materials he uses and how his crew would build my fence. After having 6 different fence companies come give me estimates I was most confident in using Robert and his team. They tore the fence down and made sure to clean up, they even cleaned up the leaves in my back surrounding the fence! Adrian was the foreman for the crew and answered any questions I had during the process and was very professional and friendly. They did a final walkthrough of the finished fence with me but I didn't find anything I wasn't happy with. I could go on about how happy I am I went with this company but want to say please don't hesitate to use Robert and his team for your fence, you won't be disappointed.

To start, our fence was falling apart! We went from one of the nicest fences in the neighborhood to one of the ugliest. Our original fence was a standard, builder’s grade fence installed by the home builder in 2007, which we had professionally repaired in 2014 (via another contractor), but this time were due for a complete replacement. We've had great success with the professionals on Thumbtack and although we’ve never worked with Queta Construction before, Henry Rodriguez’s response time, pricing, and knowledge were superior to all the other fencing contractors we interviewed. It was a pleasure working with him at the end of April 2016 and after the treated boards have had a chance to dry out in a month or two, his team will be back out to stain our fence. Again, super nice, very professional, and very reasonable in price. Where most contractors we’ve talked to (even on past projects) will only accept cash or check, Queta Construction also accepts credit as a form of payment. Henry came to our home within days of initial contact on Thumbtack for a quote which was provided within minutes and his team was available to begin work only a couple of business days later. He listened to all our requests and made recommendations where appropriate. They even built us a custom trashcan containment area to match the fencing (pricing on that custom build was excellent, as well). Very flexible scheduling, returned phone calls quickly, and work was completed ahead of schedule. The fence is superior to our builder’s standard fence in every way: treated pine posts, rails, and 2x6 base supports, and beautiful 1x6 cedar pickets, posts installed at 2.5’ depth with no cement showing above ground, everything installed very evenly and flowed smoothly with the peaks and valleys of the yard, from posts to rails to pickets. Great quality boards, no visible knots or holes. I highly recommend Mr. Rodriguez and team! I understand some of my neighbors have already contacted him for quotes of their after seeing the work he did at our house. Thanks again Henry!!

I had a fence replaced and really enjoyed working and communicating with Omar. He was very personable and professional. I am not stationed in the area so clear communication is a must. I was very happy with the end product. Hope to definitely use this contractor again.

Robert and his crew came to the rescue as we were left high and dry by another contractor. He was great at communicating expectations along the way. His crew was professional and got things done in a timely manner. He built us a cattle panel style fence for our dog (which he loves to play around in). The end product looks great and we're happy to recommend them to anyone in the future!
