Top Fence Repair related questions

Fence repair is usually the cheaper and faster way to fix a fence. Fence issues like rotted panels, warping, and discolouration are often repairable. However, you should probably replace your fence if the damage covers more than 20% of your fence panels. A fence replacement may be a better option if a repair would cost too much money and effort. Your Tasker may be able to advise you on the best solution for your fence problem. 

You may need to replace your fence posts if the wood starts to crumble in your hands. As a rule of thumb, you should replace your fence posts if termite damage or rot has affected over 30% of the posts. Fence post removal is available on Airtasker; simply put up a task to find fence specialists who can do the job.  

Fence repair usually takes one to three days. But the timeline depends on the complexity of your task, as well as your Tasker’s availability and skill level. Nevertheless, it shouldn’t take several weeks to repair or replace a fence. And it would be best if you were wary of fencing contractors over-extending a task. We recommend discussing timelines with your Tasker before you start the fence repairs. At this stage, you can align expectations.

Yes. Your fence contractor will likely have their tools on hand. Fence repair tools include an electric drill, post hole digger, shovel, drill bits, pliers, and a wagon. If you haven’t purchased fence panels or fence post brackets, your Tasker can get those materials for you as well. Simply include fencing materials in your request and suggested budget. Otherwise, you can opt to provide the fencing material, then hire a fence fitter to do the installation.  

A fence can last for 15 to 20 years with proper installation and maintenance. The lifespan of a fence depends on the fencing material. For example, wooden fences last for 10 to 12 years, while Colorbond fences last for 60 years or more. Extreme weather and wood-damaging posts are also other factors that can affect the lifespan of a fence. Our platform offers an easy way to find affordable and reliable fencing experts for your maintenance needs. 

Yes. If your fence is damaged beyond repair, you can put up a task for fence removal instead. Fence removal is also helpful for residents looking to replace their fence with nicer panels. Leave the tedious, heavy-lifting work to your fence removal Tasker. They’ll remove your unwanted fence and even take your old panels to the tip afterwards. 

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.
