A leaning fence is both an unsightly blemish and a safety risk. It can diminish the visual attractiveness of your home while undermining your privacy and protection.

The average cost of repairing a leaning fence ranges between $400 and $1,100. The amount you pay will be determined by the extent of the problem but in most cases it requires replacing fence posts.

On average, you can pay between $400 and $1000. The job involves repairing panels and rails and rehanging fallen panels. Typically, it’s cheaper to mend leaning fences caused by poor installation or wear and tear than it is to repair a fence that’s leaning because of rot, pest infestations, or storm damage.

You will pay less if the posts and foundation are intact and more if they fall because that calls for more effort and time.

Factors That Determine the Cost of Leaning Fence Repair

Many factors determine how much you pay for your leaning fence repair. Among them:

  1. The cause: Knowing what is causing your fence to lean helps determine a suitable solution and determines how much you pay for the repair of your leaning fence.
  2. The extent of the damage: Some leaning fence repairs only require a few screws to secure and stabilize the fence, while other times, it is necessary to panels posts and hardware. The labor and materials needed for either repair will determine how much you will pay.
  3. The type of fence: You can expect to pay more if your leaning fence is made of expensive materials. For instance, chain link fences are cheap to purchase and repair compared to vinyl fences.
  4. The length: You will pay more if the damage extends far down a fence because you will have to replace multiple panels.
  5. The height: Taller fences require more materials and labor to fix, so you can expect to pay more if you have a fence that’s taller than the standard height.

Leaning Fence Repair Cost Per Foot

Professional leaning fence repair costs homeowners between $10 and $50 per linear foot. Unfortunately, most repair companies have a minimum call-out price while others specify charges for certain types of repairs. As a result, they do not always charge per linear foot.

The price varies depending on the fence height, location, fencing material, and extent of the damage. Y
