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.

David came out and quoted us a fair price in the fence. He came and ropes it the old fence, replaced it with new picket fencing 200 linear feet) and three gates. We're happy with the work and will likely use him again.

Ennis enterprises replaced my 20 year old wood fence with a vinyl fence. He was on time, and did a great job. He worked with me in the decision making process as I was undecided with what I wanted to put up. Recommend him for your fencing needs

We hired Keith to put up a fence at our newly purchased home. We had four dogs moving in and needed the fence quickly after settlement. Keith started the day after settlement and assured us the fence would be finished by Wednesday. Sure enough, the fence was completed by Wednesday! On Tuesday night, Keith put up temporary fencing for the night so the dogs could go out. Keith's work was impeccable and it was the first time in a very long time that we encountered someone who takes pride in his work! He and his employee were respectful, prompt, and used exceptional materials. He constructs the fence himself and does not use prefab sections. Keith is a wonderful man and an excellent choice for fencing. We enjoyed meeting him and would very highly recommend Keith without any reservation. If you need fencing completed, Keith of Foster Construction is your man! Thank you, Keith! Piper/Yanuskiewicz Family 6/16/16

I had New Look install a fence in my backyard. Jesse & crew were phenomenal. From the consultation to the installation, they communicated well and promptly installed my fence without issue. They’re competitively priced and installed my fence within a week of my consultation. I’ll call New Look for my next home improvement project.

I had Dave repair a chain link fence and put in a 12ft double gate on the fence, as well as remove parts of an old fence. He explained the entire process with me and gave me a fantastic price! Very friendly to the military and loves helping out a fellow sailor. I'm almost sad that the additional work that I need done isn't in his wheelhouse, cuz he'd be hired again in a heartbeat.

The job was for removal of an old fence and installation of a new one. The quality of the build was top notch. Built a true custom fence, using actual 4x4 post, 2x4s and individual planks instead of the pre build crap. Very professional build crew and staff. Highly recommend!!!
