Choosing the Right Type of Fence

Now that you have your dream house, what’s next? If you’re like most people, you are probably thinking of ways to improve your home. Do you want a swimming pool in the backyard? Or perhaps a deck where you and your family can hang out during lazy Saturday afternoons? You can also have a fence built to provide more privacy and to act as an added safety measure for your family. Adding a fence to your property is a major investment that’s why you need to take extra care in choosing which type of fence you want and which of the local fencing contractors in your area you should hire.

Types of Fences

Timber Fence

If you want a fence that exudes charm and provides a homey and welcoming feel, then a timber fence is a good choice for you. Timber fences are common in almost all parts of the world. They come in various styles and designs and when it comes to wood fence installation, different types of wood can be used. This means that you can personalise the fence to fit your house’s design as well as your needs.

Aluminium Fence

If you want a fence but don’t want to be bothered with maintenance, aluminium fences are perfect for you. Aluminium resists corrosion so you don’t have to worry about regular upkeep. Aluminium fence installation is popular because it is cheaper than steel and can be made into various shapes and sizes. It is also recyclable and cheaper than steel, so if you are after an eco-friendly and a more affordable fencing option, you should definitely consider aluminium fences.

Wrought Iron Fence

When you think of fence installation, one of the first things that come to mind is security. If safety is your main reason for putting up a fence, the the wrought iron fence is the best option for you. Wrought iron fences are highly durable, very hard to break, and with regular maintenance can last for many years. They can be formed into all kinds of shapes and designs which can add to the aesthetic appeal of your property.

Colorbond Fence

More and more fencing companies are now adding Colorbond fences in their fence installation services. Colorbond fences are widely popular in Australia because it serves many purposes - adds security and privacy, marks the boundaries of your property, and helps reduce noise. It is durable and maintenance-free.

Wire Fence

If privacy is not a priority, then wire fence is a good choice for you. It is highly durable since it is made from galvanised steel. Wire fence or chain link fence installation jobs are commonly seen in schools, farms, warehouses, and along airports. It is easy to install and the materials used are fairly inexpensive.

Vinyl Fence

Vinyl is very strong and very flexible making it a great fencing option especially if you are after durability and ease of maintenance. The only maintenance required is hosing it down with hose and water to keep it clean. It resists paint so stains and graffiti will not be a problem.

Cost of Fence Installation Services

Now that you have decided on what type of fence will suit your needs, the next thing on your mind is probably how much will it cost you? Some people who are handy with tools and love a good challenge will probably consider installing the fence on their own. However, this is easier said than done. Fence installation involves a lot of things such as measuring, cutting, and making sure that everything is structurally sound. To avoid costly mistakes, it is better to hire a professional fence installer to handle the job for you.

The first thing you should do is to ask local fencing contractors for quotes and compare their prices. The cost of installing a fence will depend on a number of factors such as the size of the property and the height of the fence. The bigger and the higher the fence means more materials will be needed. The type of fence and the materials that will be used also affects the total cost. Just make sure to ask for a written quote with an itemised list of all the materials and tools that will be used including labour.

Your fencing contractor will also inspect the grading of your yard. If it slopes, the fence may need to be stepped or contoured to the ground which can add to the installation cost. Fencing cost also increases with each gate that you add.
