Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The first step to setting up a consultation with a fence professional during the COVID-19 pandemic is sending the pro a message, which you can easily do online. Ask potential pros if you can set up a phone call or video chat to explain what fencing services you need. A video chat is useful because it allows the fence installer to guide you so they can get the necessary information. During the consultation, discuss virtual payments, the timeline of the project and any precautions you’ll both take to ensure safety.

How can I find out if a fence professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a fence professional can be considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, check the website of your city or state government. Another useful resource is CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19, which provides information in a nationwide context. 

Within it are 16 different categories of infrastructure sectors that are considered essential. But keep in mind that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for fence and gate installation and repairs?

Currently, many fence and gate professional use common digital payment services like Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Google Pay, Zelle and more. Many more are quickly adopting the platforms as COVID-19 continues to force companies to digitally transform.

Contact the professional beforehand to discuss whether you can make digital payments, and take all measures to comply with social distancing recommendations. Compare fence professionals side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Does a fence professional need to enter my home?

Fencing jobs are done outdoors, so a fence professional or contractor will most likely not need to enter your home during the project. The exception to this may be any electrical work.

However, you may be able to work with fence professional to give them the information they need ahead of time through video chats, emails and photos sent digitally. Avoid all contact and practice social distancing guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local government. Discuss the best approach with local fence pros before they arrive at your home.

Do fence installers offer remote or virtual services?

Because fence installation needs to be done in person, fence professionals usually cannot offer remote services. If you come across profiles that state they offer remote services, message the fence installer to see what those services include.

For consultations and meetings, ask the fence professional if you can coordinate a virtual consultation in which you explain the project to them through video, photos and drawings transferred online. If not, it may be wise to postpone the project and book an appointment at a later date

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 install a fence gate?

Adding a gate to your fence can be a practical way to provide access to a yard, work area or outdoor living space while ensuring safety and privacy. Gate installation costs will vary based on the gate material you select, the size of your gate, whether you install a fence at the same time, and any special features you’d like to add. Standard opening size for a single-wide gate is 4 feet; a double-wide gate is 8 feet. A small gate may be for decoration; a double-wide gate can be mounted on a rolling caster system to allow access for cars or wide loads. Here are some examples of average fence gate installation costs:

  • 4-foot, single-swing chain-link gate: $100 for materials and installation costs.
  • 28-foot wheeled chain-link gate on a caster system: $800-$1,000 for materials and installation costs.
  • 4-foot, single-swing wood gate: $75.
  • 8-foot double-wide wood gate: $150.
  • 4-foot white vinyl walk-through gate: $300–$400 for materials and installation costs.
  • 8-foot, double-wide white vinyl gate: about $800 for materials and installation costs.
  • White vinyl gate fence more than 8 feet wide: $1,200-$1,500 for materials and installation.
  • Arched black powder-coated aluminum pool gates: $175-$200 per gate.

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.

Does adding a fence increase property value?

Fencing may increase the value of your property. However, this depends on what type of fence is installed and the purpose of the fence. For example, a fence may be worth more to a property that needs it to diminish noise coming from a highway. Fences may also be a plus to dog owners who require a backyard fence. 

When deciding whether to install a fence in your yard, consult with your realtor or real estate expert. They can help you prioritize home improvement projects that will add value to your home.

Nate was super quick to respond to my initial outreach and even came out Thanksgiving morning to measure our fence. He and his crew were able to take down the old fence and install our new fence in just 2 days! We are very happy with the quality of the fence as well.

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.

Florent and his fence master finished the fence replacement job in 3 days. They stick to their promised schedule. They asked me throughout the project some details how I wanted done, and they very much did what I requested. They are easy to work with. The fence looks beautiful.

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!

I needed to replace a fence line that I shared with my neighbor as well as my front fence and gate. Manku and his team provided a competitive quote after a very thorough and thoughtful evaluation of the job. I chose Huskies over another fence company because they took the time to talk me through what they would be doing and any challenges that may come up. They did an excellent job replacing my fence and even took the time to talk with my neighbors who were sharing the expense with me. I’m very happy with the work and will be reaching out in the future for another part of my fence that needs replacing.

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.

Guri looked at my fence and said” I can make this look good again and it will be strong and safe” He did just what he said and put the support behind the fence. The fence is old and lots of rot He covered the bad spots and we have painted the fence and it Looks great. He is a hard worker, calls when he is running late and a Real Gentleman.

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!

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.
