What do fence repair services include?

Fence repair methods vary depending on the type of damage. To name a few, fence repair may include replacing fence panels or securing loose posts with backfill. No matter what damage your fence has sustained, we’ll help you find a fencing specialist for the job. Here are some fence repair services you can book on Airtasker. 

Wooden fence post repair 

Wood fences take a beating from the sun, wind, rain, and snow. Not to mention, wood-damaging pests subject your fence to rotting. If you need to repair your garden fence posts or secure wobbly posts, you can hire a Tasker to fix that right up. For example, your Tasker may use a fence post repair spike to secure a weak timber post.  

Or they can use fence post spurs to fix broken or rotted fences sections. Fence post brackets can secure fencing and straighten up leaning posts. Please note that one weak fence post can pull down your entire fence, so make sure to schedule your fence post repair as soon as you notice problems with your fence. 

Fence panel repair 

Repairing fence panels is a fast and cost-effective way to fix a fence, including slatted fence panels. Fence panel repair may require removing damaged fence panels and replacing them with new ones. Taskers can also repair slatted fence panels so that you can restore the privacy of your home. 

If your fence simply needs a new paint job, a Tasker can get it done as well. Once your fence is in good shape, you can start planning for a cosy garden deck with a decking specialist

Chain link fence repair

Your chain link fence may give way underneath if you have a dog that keeps digging under your fence. Or perhaps a tree limb fell on your property and ruined your fence rails. (You can hire a Tasker to remove a fallen tree or inspect a dangerous tree in your property, too!) When such issues arise, it’s easy to book chain link fence repairs on our platform. 

Chain link fence repair may include cutting out the damaged section and replacing it with a new piece. Other repair methods include attaching tent stakes to the bottom of your fence. Rather than look through several chain link fence repair companies online, why not hire a Tasker for the job? Find trusted chain link fence repair experts by putting up a task now.

Concrete fence repair 

Using a concrete fence repair spur is another quick and effective way to repair a fence. Fixing your concrete fence posts prolongs the service life of your fence. Rather than spend money right away on a full fence replacement, your Tasker can reinforce your fence from one side. 

Some other issues with concrete fence panels include wobbly footing, water intrusion, and cracks. These cases call for solutions like replacing the whole footing, adding a support post, and injecting epoxy into the cracks.

The tongue has broken off our brown colorbond gate so it no longer closes. We would like someone to supply a replacement tongue an weld it onto the gate. It would be great if the weld covers the hole left by the previous tongue. We are ok if the new tongue doesn’t match the fence colour, as long as it is neutral.

Fix rickety fence


Evatt ACT, Australia

3rd Feb 2023

Our fence needs to have a steel pole put in the ground and attached to keep it upright and secure, near where it joins the gate. See pics. I think this would involve digging a hole, filling with concrete and securing to fence. The first pic is the rickety section and the second of an example of a pole further along the fence which keeps the fence strong and upright. - Due date: Flexible

Paul fixed our rickety fence and did an amazing job. He purchased the supplies and provided advice around long term considerations for our fence/gate. He was a good communicator, friendly and efficient. He even agreed to a further job small job on the spot and taught me how to use my drill to hang pictures. Very helpful! Highly recommend.

Fix two fence gates. One wooden one colourbond


Conder ACT, Australia

17th Oct 2022

Wooden gate is old and seems to have just sagged overtime. Not sure on solution, hopefully you know. Colourbond looks like the gate has sagged but it’s actually the fence was not attached to the boundary fence. If that was done I think it would sort the gate. Again hopefully you know. Need someone who actually understands the geometry of these and isn’t just having a go. That didn’t work last time. Not actually suggesting this is a 5 dollar job. I’ve just no idea 🙂 - Due date: Flexible
