Fence and Gate Installation

  • Serves Spokane, WA
Rick O'Connor says, "Our experience with Columbia General Contracting couldnt have gone any better.Marcus came out during our home inspection to scope the sewer on a 1902 Craftsman in the Emerson-Garfield neighborhood and while talking to him about the work we would want to have done prior to move in he gave me the other necessary contact info.I called later that afternoon and spoke to Kelly, letting him know that we needed to have the living room ceiling repaired as it was sagging pretty bad and he went over the possible scheduling options with us. We of course still had to wait to finalize everything with purchasing the home but he was able to get the ball rolling and got me in touch with Phil. Within a few days they were able to meet my agent at the home to get us a quote. I honestly didnt think we would be able to make things work so quickly from a scheduling standpoint with how crazy the market is and how insanely busy all of the trades are. I expected that wed have to wait at a minimum of a few weeks after closing to have the work done but Phil assured me that they would do everything they possibly could to start the project as close to the first day that we took possession as possible.Fortunately we had almost a full 2 months between the closing date and the date we need to be out of our current place so if it took a little longer to get the job done it wouldnt have been a big deal, but sure enough they were able to start the day after we got the keys! Also to be fair to them, we closed on a Friday and they were ready to start that day but our son was graduating high school out of state on Sunday so we asked them to push it back till Tuesday so that we didnt have to make an extra trip from Missoula to Spokane and back.Mike, Jason and Jeff showed up first thing Tuesday morning and after doing a walk through with them they got to work on the fun part - the demo.Jason, Jeff and Chuck were back for the next few days for what had to be the worst part - cleaning up 120 years of insulation and plaster & lath. They busted their butts to get it done on schedule so that they could start installing the new drywall ceiling and getting the tape and mud done. Tiffany joined them for the taping and mudding and they had it finished by the end of the day on Friday. Mike and Jeff returned the following week (last week) to blow the new insulation into the attic and just like that the job was complete!We really appreciated them getting the job done in the allotted time as we had someone scheduled to come in right behind them to refinish our floors. Everything remained on schedule and the job got done on budget!All of the on site crew members (Mike, Jeff, Jason, Chuck and Tiffany) were friendly, respectful, trustworthy and hard working. Phil, Tara and Kelly in the office we very helpful and always fast to respond to any inquires we had. There were a few times I reached out to Mike after business hours with questions and I never had a problem getting ahold of him, even on the weekend!The ceiling looks great (we gained 2 inches of height in the living room) and more importantly the work they did to the rafters and joists will help our home last for many more years to come.We wont hesitate to call Columbia first for the future work we plan on having done around our home!Thanks Mike, Jeff, Jason, Chuck, Tiffany, Marcus, Tara, Kelly and Phil!"See more

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

Palmer construction helped us when a small project turned into a fully fledged insurance claim from a summer storm. Our fence, roof, garage roof and deck awning needed a full replacement after inspection and Palmer said they would help through the process from beginning to end. The business is ran by a family who are very kind people, and they helped guide us through the insurance process really well. Luckily we also have great home insurance who cares about their customers. Craftsmanship is great, and their team of guys are communicative and really listen to any suggestions or problems you might have. There were a few days where they were swamped with work on other sites and didn't make it out nor communicate it very well, BUT - they hired extra help in the office towards the end of our project and communication improved dramatically. I'm also not the easiest client, so take that into consideration. Glad to see they are always trying to improve and grow. Prices were fair and I would recommend Palmer for any project you might have.
