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.

How do you strengthen a fence gate?

If you think your gate needs reinforcement, hire a fence repair professional in your area. Squaring up a fence gate may require adding corner brackets, installing a cable and turnbuckle, and cinching and tightening the cable to the appropriate tension. All of these repairs, as well as digging a new post hole, require expertise and know-how.

We had our broken down fence demo'd and replaced with a very nice cedar fence. In addition we requested that on one side the fence line be extended with another gate to provide a dog run. On the opposite side I came up with a sketch design and some sample photos for a gate and double swing out door with trellis. Kevin was able to work with his team and have my design implemented perfectly. Very happy with the results, Kevin and his team were superb. We will be hiring the back once it's warmer to stain the fence as this can't be done due to all the rain still.

Serghei and his son were very quick to come for an estimate for our fence. They listened to what we wanted and gave us a few options on what they can do as well as price differences. Once we selected them, they responded quickly to a start date which didn't work for us. We suggested a new date and they were very accommodating. We needed a back and side fenced replaced with 2 different designs. Once they tore-down the old fence away they were able to see the area better and gave us new options on how the new fence posts can be installed. The whole project was completed in a day (our fence posts didn't need to be dug into the ground which it made faster). They came back for a couple more hours the next day to finish up and take all their equipment away. They work quickly and clean up after themselves. Even though their pricing was similar to other contractors, they stood out because they were willing to work with us with some of the odd requests we wanted for the fence (we wanted 3 railings instead of 2, we wanted to match the design to our existing newer side fence but do a different design for the other side fence we wanted replaced). They understood our needs and were happy to work with us every step of the way. I would hire him again (he said his company does a lot of home improvements from dry walls, framing, painting, deck construction etc).

Our fence was blown down after the wind storm. Jose Calel was able to come quickly to give me an estimate. They came the next day and put up the new fence in just one day and my husband was very pleased with their work. Their price was fair and I highly recommend Calel’s Landscaping.

Very professional! A section of our fence and back gate blew down with the last windstorm. We hired P&A landscaping to replace that section to match our existing fence and rebuild our gate. Also our yard had sink holes so he dug up the whole back yard, brought in topsoil to level, flatten out, reseed, and bark the garden beds. They matched the fence exactly and tge grass is growing in beautifully now. We were so surprised, at how fast they were! Had we done it ourselves it would’ve taken us weeks. He and his crew came in and did it all in a day and a half! I would recommend Pedro to anyone. He’s a great guy and does quality work. I’ve attached photos of our fence. The left side and gate are new, the right side is the old fence. The only difference between the two is that the new fence has not been stained yet. Will get to that soon. Pedro came back this morning to check on the grass and decided to reseed sections of it that weren’t growing in as well as expected. Just another example of his great customer service. It should not be long until the grass is all grown in and looking beautiful. Pedro is the best!
