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.

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.

Once the project was started David Jones and his team did a very good job repairing one of the gates on my fence. He also put a small fence around my large propane tank. The job was completed in one day. He was professional and knowledgeable. I'm pleased with the end result and would use him for other projects in the future.

Exceptionally professional. Fast turn around for a rush job after a storm took out our fence. Came back for a second meeting when we decided to make a change to the design. I highly recommend David and his team.

They replaced 40 feet of custom fencing that was destroyed in a recent storm. They did a superb job with the repair. David was always the consummate professional - straightforward in his communication with me about the project, and unbelievably prompt in completing the repair. I would recommend him highly.

Definitely a pleasant experience. Al was always responsive and ready. I had to put the job on hold initially, but he was ready when I called back. I appreciate the work that was done to my fence and the pictures sent after it was over. I wasn’t able to be there but I trusted the work to be completed. Thank you so much!

Al was quick to respond to my request for an estimate and then to complete the job. He replaced a post for my wooden fence gate and re-jiggered the existing gate and hardware to get it functioning again. It was a bit complicated working around roots and concrete. I'm happy to have a working gate again that keeps the pets contained and the aesthetic consistent.

Nilos Landscaping did a great job in installing my fence. I was very satfisfied with the results. The price was fair and the work was completed in 2 days. After completion I had a few concerns. Resolution to my concerns were resolved about a week an a half later due to company circumstances. However, at the next available opportunity my concerns were resolved promptly. I will use this company again for other projects. Very nice..

Due to some setbacks because of the rain, scheduling was a little difficult at first, but Cristian was very responsive and apologetic. Thankfully, he was able to complete the project in the timeframe that I needed which was very important. He came over, measured and made suggestions and a week later called Miss Utility and was putting up my fence! I am very pleased with the work and how quickly it was done. I will definitely consider them for additional home services. Thanks Dreambuilders!!!

Nilos Landscaping did a fairly large job for us. We asked them do a fence repair, deck repair and total yard cleanup. They arrived early and got right to work. They explained the process when things came up needing to be discussed that weren’t in the original plans and they delivered as promised! I don’t usually write reviews but they were so professional from the very beginning when they came by to give us a quote and I was comfortable with their honesty and integrity. I look forward to continuing to work with Nilos Landscaping in the future! Don’t hesitate to give them a try!

Very satisfied with the work that Nilos lansdscaping did (repaired wooden fence section that got damaged by tree). Nilo contacted me the same day that I put request in for quote. (Friday afternoon). Set up appointment for a Saturday visual in order to get a quote. Received quote, and work was done and completed on that Tuesday. Would have had work done on the Monday after the quote, but it rained that day, so the work was performed on Tuesday. Nilos crew were on time , cleaned up after work completed. Best quote received for work done. Great job on the project. I am very pleased with this service and would recommend and use again.
