Common Types of Fences in Australia

Planning to install a fence on your property? It’s important to know your options before you choose the best type of fence for your place. Read on to know more about the most common kinds of fencing.

By fencing off your property, you will be able to reap many benefits including an improved curb appeal and enhanced security and privacy.

  • Improved curb appeal
    Having a lawn and always keeping it neat and trimmed can give a good curb appeal to your place. But did you know that you can still make it better? All you need to do is have a fence installed! You can instantly see how it dramatically improves the aesthetics of your property.

  • Privacy
    You’ll find it hard to enjoy special occasions or do certain things in your home or in your front and backyard if passersby and your neighbours have a clear view of your property. When you have a fence installed, you’ll have more privacy, and it will be easier for you to do everything you need to do.

  • Security
    When you fence off your place, you’ll be giving your kids and pets a safe place where they can play freely. It will be easier for you to keep an eye on them too. Also, fences prevent strangers and animals from entering your property. This helps secure not only your safety and possessions, but their safety as well, especially if you have a swimming pool and other dangerous equipment at your place.

Different types of fences

Don’t forget to talk to fence contractors about these fence types and ask them for advice on the best type that’s perfect for your needs and requirements.

  1. Timber fence
    Timber fencing is the most popular type of fencing. Not only does it give a sense of privacy because of its height, it also has a certain appeal that others don’t. If you want to give your home a cosy, warm, and a closer-to-nature feel, talking to timber fence contractors is your best bet.There are also different types of timber to choose from, so you can surely get the best timber fence that matches the overall look of your property.

  2. Colorbond fence
    If you’re looking for a fence that can withstand Australia’s extreme climate and weather, then Colorbond fencing is the perfect choice. Australian-made, it is designed to be long-lasting and sturdy. Moreover, it is easy to maintain. Colorbond fencing is also backed by a 10-year warranty. It’s also fireproof, and it greatly improves properties’ security and privacy. If you think this fence type is for you, talk to specialists in doing Colorbond fence installation jobs.

  3. Steel fencing
    Steel fences are durable, and they last for decades. They withstand severe weather conditions and resist impact too. That’s why they’re mostly used in places that need high security levels. Also, they bear close resemblance to expensive wrought iron fences. No wonder it is a highly favoured fence type! The downside is steel fences rust even though they can be galvanised or powder-coated. The only thing you can do to delay the corrosion is to regularly paint and maintain them.

  4. Aluminium fence
    Aluminium fencing is the sustainable alternative to steel fencing. Aluminium doesn’t rust, and it can also be recycled. It’s cheaper and requires little maintenance too! You’ll have to do your best not to damage it, though. It’s not as sturdy as steel; it easily gets dents. It’s perfect for people who are looking for greener and more affordable fencing solutions but has security at the bottom of their priorities.

  5. PVC and vinyl fence
    Ask fence contractors in Australia (and even in other countries) what the best solution would be if you want the look of timber fences but not the maintenance requirement that goes with having a timber fence, and they’ll only say one thing: go for PVC or vinyl fencing. They imitate the look of timber fences; however, they are a bit more expensive to install. When put up, though, they need nothing more than some occasional wash to be in tip-top condition.

  6. Wire fence
    Also known as chain link fences, wire fences has always been among the most inexpensive fencing options. Aside from it being affordable, wire fences also last for years without needing too much maintenance. The downside? It doesn’t give much privacy, and it’s not really visually appealing. But hey, you can always plant flowers, vines, and shrubs near it to make up for the lack of privacy and make it more pleasing.

What to look for when you hire a fencing business

To ensure that you’ll be getting the best value for your money, work only with reliable tradesmen. Don’t forget to check these out when choosing which business to hire for your job.

Qualifications - Always make sure that the business you’re employing is qualified to do your job. Aside from having an ABN, they should also hold a valid licence, especially if it is required by your local council. Australian states have different regulations when it comes to fencing work, so don’t forget to find out whether fence contractors in your area need to be licensed to handle fencing installation, fencing repair, and other fencing jobs or not.

Specialisations - Not all businesses erect the same types of fencing; many still specialise in certain fencing jobs. It’s always best to talk to them about their specialisations and the services that they provide to find out if they have all your needs covered.

Reviews - Do their customers praise and recommend their services? Don’t just rely on what businesses say, know for yourself by reading customer reviews. By doing so, you’ll see if the business you’re considering for your job is professional, trustworthy, courteous, and dependable, if they charge fair prices, and if they’re great at communicating with their customers.

Cost of fencing services

The current average price of fencing jobs is $48 per square metre. However, don’t expect the business you’re hiring for a fencing service to charge you the same price; they’ll base the overall cost on some factors such as the size of the area you want to fence off, the hours it will take to complete the job, and more.
