How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Fence?

posted in: Uncategorized | 5
A fence is very susceptible to damage. It is exposed to sun, wind, rain, hail, excessive heat and cold, animals and even vandals.

Fence Materials

If you need to replace a part of your fence, then the material your fence is made from will have a large impact on the price of the repair. Different fencing materials have different costs. A chain link fence is more affordable than a cedar. A brick wall around your property is more expensive to repair than vinyl fencing. You will also have to take into account materials like paint and locks should you need to repaint the fence or replace a lock on the gate.

Extent of the Damage

How much damage your fence has suffered will affect the cost of any repair. If your fence has lost a few slats in a wind or hail storm, that is a reasonably quick and simple repair. If the fence has been pulled out from the ground and will require the posts to be reset in cement, then it will be more expensive. If your fence is very long or very tall and has suffered a great deal of damage, then the cost to repair it may be more than the fence is worth and require a new fence installation.

Labor Cost Factors

The cost to hire a professional to fix or replace your damaged fence will be a large portion of the cost of your fence repair. We require inspecting the damage before giving you a quote.

Landscape Damage

Depending on the extent of fence damage, you may have additional costs to fix the lawn and shrubbery around the fence.

  1. I like what this article mentions about all the factors that go into the price of a fence repair. It makes sense that what sort of damage, how much is damaged, and the materials will have a big effect on the price. I recently found that my fence has some pretty extensive termite damage and I think it could be time to replace the fence with a new one. Thanks for the post!

  2. I agree, when you’re determining how much it will cost to repair your fence you will need to know how much damage has occurred. For example, if your chain-link fence only has some rust on it then it won’t cost much. However, if it has been ripped from the ground then it will cost quite a bit more.

  3. I appreciate what you said about how much damage your fence has suffered and how this plays a role in how much it will cost to repair it. When working with any type of fencing material, it’s important to contact a fencing contractor to administer repairs when necessary. If I were to need a new fence, I would make certain to talk with a contractor that has a wide selection of fencing options.

  4. Thanks for helping me understand that the labor of the contractors will also be a factor for the cost of the job, but it must be checked by the workers first before knowing the quote. I will definitely have that done so that we can prepare financially for this project. It will be for the repair of the wooden fence of this property since the old tree has collapsed and fell on it.
