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.

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.

Keith is a super guy, he and his staff were in and out in 4 days on 300' of fence including an 8 foot gate. That included one day of rain and concrete setting up. Very professional every step of the way, would recommend Keith to anyone who is contemplating having a fence built in place.

Family Affair did an amazing job with our fence and we love it. They were great to work with and always responded to questions or requests quickly. They were communicative on every step of the process and more than willing to help where needed. They went above and beyond my expectations and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a fence done.

Mr. Spiker is thoughtful and creative. Communicate what you would like to accomplish and he will offer timely solutions. Had to replace a section of my fence, he built it from scratch to match and the cost was reasonable.

Do not i repeat do not use this guy. He showed up unprepared. He used my fencing my post and even concrete. How do you show up to a job to put a fence in and don't even have concrete. Any way it took him about 3 weeks to install the fence after concrete was set. Then he tells me the fence panel that I have that he used was on back order at lowes. So turned out he order the wrong panels so I bought them and he built them. He didn't clean up after his self. I had to buy a magnet because of the nails and screws left in my yard. And to top it off I had to get the next contractor tire plugged and this guy still wanted full payment.... he showed up with his kids which ok cool of they where working but one night they where outside my house until after 9pm making noise he didn't even co.e prepared for that... I gave him a courtesy stair because the gate atleast open and is wide enough for the rv to pull out off.

Mr. Tyree and his assistant Skeeter are the best. I hired him on short notice and he was able to get the job done (did work over the weekend). The fence looks great! Will hire him again for the next big project, the deck.

Dewayne did an exceptional job replacing an existing fence at my home. Reasonable pricing and I was completely satisfied with the quality of his work. I look forward to hiring him on future projects around my home. I would definitely recommend this guy here.

This review comes a bit late. So I hired Fred to do a picket fence install a few months back. He was able to work with me on my specific situation and made it happen. He got the project done despite the extremely warm weather. Great work and thanks again.

Jesse and his guys did an awesome job throughout the entire install. With the state of affairs (Covid-19) he kept us informed, answered all questions and addressed our concerns ensuring us that we had hired the right company for our privacy fence project. We will definitely hire them again for any future home improvement projects.

I would recommend grabbing dinner, going to a ball game, or any other typical outing with the owner because he genuinely seems to be a nice guy. His craftsmanship however, leaves a lot to be desired as my neighbors (who are not professional carpenters, to say the least) built a much better fence--see below. If someone with an untrained eye can look at Pro Battle's work and determine that it isn't good, then there is an issue, especially if he (the owner) cannot see the issues that were quite literally pointed out. If you care about quality and want to spend your money wisely, look elsewhere, otherwise enjoy the frustration of having another contractor fix the issues just as we are.
