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.

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.

Nick has an exemplary work ethic and superb attention to every detail. He will provide you above and beyond the standard to satisfy you. He does not leave until he sees a smile on your face. Nick installed 385 ft of linear wood fencing that will hold up to the East Texas elements for decades. THIS IS THE MAN!

Dustin built a privacy fence for me to cover our pool equipment. He is very quick to get in touch with on thumbtack and also was recommended by a friend by coincidence. He is attentive to detail and very talented at what he does. Dustin is an honest guy and I and my wife are extremely satisfied with the work he has done. We are going to do a flagstone walkway and he offered to do it also. This guy is fantastic to work with folks

Literally everything about working with Dustin was great. He was responsive, communicative, gave a fair price, stuck to it, showed up when he said he would, worked hard until the job was done, and put up a great fence. He asked for clarification when my input was needed and improvised well when it wasn't. He adapted to the realities of the project (bad weather, unexpected tree roots) without complaint or gratuitous delay. I'm very happy and would strongly recommend him.

Dustin did an excellent job on our fence! We love it! He took the time to make sure that all the details were like we wanted, and he was flexible enough to make some changes that we decided mid-project. He always told us where those changes would cost more, or not, and then followed through on the new price. We had several obstacles to work around, but he worked diligently to make the finished product look like it had been smooth sailing the whole way. We will certainly recommend him and use him for any future projects we have!

Backyard fence blew done partially and, due to age and rot, needed replacing almost entirely. Nick answered my query promptly came out and assessed the job down to the last detail instead of throwing out numbers over the phone, and worked with me to keep the price down. Despite my need to reduce costs, the materials were of high quality and the workmanship top notch. I had no need of a quick repair, so he worked me in bit by bit around other jobs: am sure he would have been faster if I'd requested it (about two weeks for entire job). I especially appreciated knowing that I had trustworthy people working around the house (his family often lends extra hands) rather than a team of characters who might be "casing the joint" for some extracurricular work. Have had those on my property before! I felt 100% safe with Nick. Straight talk and honest hard work.
