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.

Reviews for South Salt Lake fence professionals
Thumbtack Customer
I hired Mike's crew to install a dividing fence in our back yard to keep the dog from getting out. They had the fence done in 3 days time from start to finish; the workers were friendly, professional, and punctual. The only thing that was frustrating was that I had asked for a 4 ft high shadow box fence several times and I ended up with a 3 ft regular siding fence. They had finished siding half the fence and I didn't care enough to have them fix it. They did tweak a section of the fence to accommodate our planter box so that the dog couldn't jump the fence. Besides that the fence looks great and it keeps the dog in.

Very happy with my new fence! Scott was easy to work with and clearly cares about doing high quality work. He was quick to respond and get the job done. I got a wood fence that needed to be matched to other areas of fence around my yard, and Scott did it well. Would recommend!

Mike did exceptional work on my fence project. He repaired a section and painted my poor old fence. The type of paint he chose revitalized the fence and the pewter color masked the worn appearance. Mike is also a perfectionist. You wil be fully satisfied with his work and glad you called him!

We needed a custom fence put up quickly. Jay and his folks came out, offered a detailed bid, customized to our needs, and got to work right away. The fence went in smoothly and looks fantastic. Jay kept us informed all along the way and ensured us he would follow up again to make sure the fence was doing well. Made for a very smooth and easy process, and the fence looks great! Highly recommend.

Shawn came out to give me an estimate for a fence. He said he works for another fence company and does work on the side. Said his boss from Beeline fence would call me to discuss the job. He never did and I followed up, but never got a response. Super sketchy and a waste of time as I never received an estimate.

Will at Alpine Maintenance did a great job salvaging and repairing my fence after it blew down from the hurricane forces winds we had. Not only did he salvage and repair the fence, he went above and beyond to make the fence stronger than before. Alpine Maintenance were responsive, punctual and well priced. I would totally use Alpine Maintenance again!

Jay was very easy to work with! He was able to get me a quote quickly and started on my fence as soon as I made the decision to move forward. The fence was done within days and looks beautiful. I had a couple of changes that I requested to be made to the gate and he came back repeatedly until I was fully satisfied. The entire process was stress-free. His team worked around every hiccup that came up (like the metal fenceposts that had been used in the previous fence and covered by 2x4s) and he

Update: The fence is not wearing well - we've had to replace a few boards because they cracked and broke. Crown Services is amazing to work with! Their work is great quality, they completed the work faster than expected, and our fence is beautiful. Philip is the consummate professional - on time, every time from the bid appointment to finishing the project. We will hire them again!

It was just fence. No gate. I didn't notice until late afternoon that you could see light through the sides of the piece he replaced.
