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 install a wood fence?

Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
  • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
  • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
  • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
  • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

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.

Guri built a beautiful fence for me. He is professional, very hard working, and pays attention to every detail. He was willing to help dig out blackberry roots and rehang some trellised vines on the new fence. The fence is solid and well built. I would highly recommend him. He’s my forever fence guy.

Family General Construction was very quick to respond to our inquiry for installing a cattle-style fence and came out the same day to provide a quote. They were flexible with when they could work on the fence, and were ready to work within 3 days of the first inquiry and quote. They took out our old fence (and removed materials) and installed the new fence in one day. Its a great quality fence and is sure to hold in our dog! Highly recommend Family General Construction.

Working with Igor and his family, of G&I Fence and Deck, was a really pleasant experience. Not only did they quickly complete our fencing project, they also did a really wonderful job. No debris or old fencing was left behind, all of our inquiries and e-mails were quickly answered, and best of all our new fence looks great. I highly recommend this company, and will not hesitate to hire them again should the need arise.

Best experience I have ever had with a contractor from beginning to end of a project. Igor was always on time, sometimes even early! He responds quickly to all forms of communication, and keeps you informed on project status continuously. He showed us some designs of his previously constructed fences, and helped us choose a fence style and staining that helped match our house to a tee. When he commits to a project, he ensures that it is done properly and on time (Stained our fence on Christmas Eve, which was a Saturday). He completed our fence in less time than estimated and exactly on budget of his estimation. I recommended him to our neighbors who are planning on replacing their fence, and I'd recommend him to anyone else. If I ever need another fence replaced, I will definitely be going back to Igor and Quality Fence.

Jovani and his brother in law did a great job on a tough request. I needed an existing fence to move and be rebuilt in place. It was a hard job and others turned it down. They took the job with a great attitude, attacked the problem, and in the end it was exactly what I asked for! I think a lot of fence contractors can built a fence in optimal conditions but these guys did it in the rain and with rough terrain and existing materials. 5 stars. Hire these guys for your fence needs!

Fence replacement; Miguel showed up on time and discussed about my fence replacement. He is a pro on his field and a very good carpenter. He finished the job on time with a reasonable price. His work is so clean it came out as very nice wood fence. My neighbors complemented on an excellent job Miguel did. I am happy I chose Miguel to install the fence. I will hire Mc and friends if I need other job to be done in the future on my property. I also recommend Mc & friends to anyone who wants to install a fence or remodel their house. Miguel is a professional skilled carpenter.

Serghei did an amazing job installing a drop rod on my fence, into my stone pavers. He even went the extra mile to ensure the fence gate was more secure and level. Quick response and very precise work. The fence is so straight and secure now - the last windstorm really beat it up, so I’m very happy it will be able to stand through the next windstorm. :)

Jesus and his partner were awesome to work with. They built a fence for us, which sounds like a simple project, but it required some problem solving, working in difficult terrain, and marching part of an existing fence all during the recent snow storm in Seattle. Great problem solvers, and a keen attention to detail. We love our new fence and will contact them for future projects.

My husband and I just had a fence installed in our backyard in order to keep our dogs in. TJ quoted a very fair price and was flexible with us as the plans changed with the location and size of the fence. He was professional and a very good communicator. Also, he was timely with regards to the appointments and the time that he spent putting the fence up. I would strongly recommend TJ!
