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 Tacoma fence professionals
Thumbtack Customer
Z.J.H. Handyman Services put in 2 fences for us and did an excellent job. The backyard has a cedar privacy fence and the front yard has a sturdy, aluminum fence and both look solid and great. Dogs love it. Once the materials were delivered, Z.J.H finished on time and to the estimate. As anticipated, the irrigation pipes posed a challenge with the fence posts but the contractor was able to work around them or reroute anything in the way. Would highly recommend to anyone look for fence building.

We had a dilapidated fence that needed replaced. Juri and crew showed up on time dismantled and hauled off the old fence and installed the new fence ahead of schedule. They did a beautiful job. I would hire them again if we needed any work done.

We needed a fence for our new home which included demolition and hauling away of the old fence. We went on Thumbtack to obtain bids and Jeff was very responsive and price was reasonable. He walked us through the benefits of the various fence options and how to talk to neighbors regarding fence down time. He was true to the schedule he provided and kept us informed along the way. The quality of the fence is excellent! We have received great comments from family and friends. We trusted Jeff completely and would definitely hire him again!

After getting 3 bids for our fence we chose Wilco Construction. From beginning to end we were very happy with the professionalism, work quality, price and placement of our new vinyl fence. I highly recommend Wilco and would definitely use them again and recommend! Thank You for our new fence!

Build the type of quality fence he boasts about. He built a fence for a friend of mine. I referred him because of the pics he showed us of his work. I am disappointed in the quality and craftsmanship of her fence. I feel bad I referred him to her. We will not be using him for our project.

Casey was great to work with and extremely punctual and responsive. The fence looks beautiful. 2 other company’s were needlessly daunted by the amount of Ivy clearing on the fence line. Casey of Kraft didn’t even bat an eye and his crew easily and efficiently finished the fence in a few days. I’ve already recommended him to several other friends.

I am extremely happy with the fence project Orlin and his crew at Shiny recently did for me. They completed the old fence demo and new fence construction ahead of schedule and it looks great! Their quality of work and professionalism is superb. They cleaned up after themselves nicely and even blew the leaves off my lawn, which I didn't expect but very much appreciated.

If I could give more stars I would! Gary was professional, easy to work with and efficient. F Gary built us an amazing fence in two days time. The fence is extremely sturdy and it incorporates a lot of finer details that make the fence that much more usable. His bid was well below others that we had received for the same project. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Gary!!

We got a quality fence for an amazing fence and it was done in two days. You cant get any better than that. He responded to my request right away, was there when he said he was going to be and came in hundreds less than my other quotes. He was able to squeeze me in 2 weeks sooner than expected and less than 2 full days later we have a beautiful fence.

Mark and his crew were hard working and completed the job in a timely manner. Mark provided an affordable bid and followed up with me every time I reached out to him. I am very happy with my fence and Mark did everything he had agreed to do in his contract. He also offered to reduce the price to remove my old fence. I definitely recommend A&M for anyone looking to have a fence done.

Nate and his team did an excellent job with my large fencing project. Removing the old chain link, putting up posts, and finishing 200 + feet of fence was completed in 3 total days. Another one of his jobs was running long, so I had to be flexible on start dates (also he booked me a month out), but I was in no rush. Actually, Nate ended up giving me a free upgrade on fence style for free. He listened to my requests and gave me advice on where to make changes as well. I definitely recommend his company and his fences! I've already given his info to another 2-3 friends looking to get new fences in the future. I could not be happier with the end product. Communication was excellent via email. He also takes a credit card for a small fee.
