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.

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. 

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 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.

Reviews for Spokane fence professionals
Thumbtack Customer
They did a good job on the fence, but the style was different than the pre-existing fence they were replacing. I should have specified that it would be the same. Workers were personable and cleaned up well. If style of fence had been the same as the rest of the existing fence, I would give 5 stars.

Very professional and friendly. Unfortunately, our PUD turned down the project and we have asked for an appeal. It probably will sit until spring, but we certainly will call Certified Fence if we are allowed any kind of fencing, and would recommend to friends.

I had a 19' run of 6' chain link fencing with a 5' gate installed. Damione is very professional, responded in a timely manner to inquiries, and showed up when he said he would for the estimate. That may seem like a no brainer, but at that point I had dealt with several people who never showed up for an estimate after an appointment was made, or didn't return phone calls or respond to email inquiries. So, encountering someone who actually seemed like they wanted my business was a huge factor in my decision to go with Certified Fence. The cost was very reasonable. Installation went smoothly, the fence looks great and the crew cleaned up before leaving. I would highly recommend Certified Fence and would not hesitate to use them again for any fencing needs that may arise.

We liked everything about working with Briles Fencing. The digitally-generated contact morphed into an onsite job start within a few days. The work was not just a simple square lot: the perimeter was irregular, the terrain undulated somewhat, there were rocks in the soil. The approx 350-ft fence with two gates was a done deal in two-and-a-half days. The whole process was undramatic and smooth, and came in on estimate. Just the way one would like it. Jake and his crew were all very very nice to work with -- and we're very happy with our new coyote-proof yard. Thanks Biles Fencing!

Damoine was great all the way through the project. Very patient with me as I changed up the project a couple times. I originally wanted a vinyl fence but in my neighbor hood the typical white vinyl would have looked out of place with all cedar fences around it. Damione showed be a brown walnut colored fence and I loved it. Installation was tough because of our sloped yard but he did a great job of leveling it down hill. Great personality, very professional! Neighbors are thinking vinyl now and I have recommended Damoine to them. I will also call him for my window installation next year. Thanks Damione!

I met with Justin who actually showed up early for our meeting. He also told me he’d have my fence done by a certain day rain or shine he delivered. Thanks again

The only one who promptly responded to our call. Colton (Thor) answered that call for help within hours on a Friday then came to my house after his day was done, assessed the damage to my fence and gate game me a great quote and set a date to come out to do the work. He met me at HOME DEPOT to pick up materials needed, came out to complete the job. This pro did a great job for a fair price. He completed all tasks and concerns we discussed with a positive work ethic and high level of expertise. I highly recommend this pro And look forward to hiring him for future projects.

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.
