What Type of Fence Do You Need?

The home that you are buying or building is probably one of the most important and expensive investments that you will make. One of the most obvious ways to protect your investment is to put up a fence around the perimeter of your property. Although some people have second thoughts about building a fence around their backyard because of the expenses involved and the upkeep and maintenance that comes with it, the pros of having a fence still far outweighs the cons.

Benefits of having a fence

  1. Security - This is most probably the number one reason why homeowners decide to put up a fence in the first place. A fence is a great way to prevent unwanted trespassers from entering your property. It prevents intruders such as vandals and thieves, as well as wild animals from wandering into your backyard. Aside from keeping intruders away, a fence will prevent pets and young children from wandering outside and into the streets, making your backyard a safer place for pets and children to play around.

  2. Privacy - Installing a fence is the perfect solution if you want a little more privacy while enjoying your garden, taking a swim in your own pool, or just to block out the noise and the craziness from outside. This is especially true these days where houses are now being built closer and closer together. Having a fence prevents your from disturbing your neighbours and vice versa.

  3. Increase the value of your property - A fence can considerably increase your home’s resale value. Even if you are not planning on selling, it is still a good idea to put up a fence to mark the boundary of your property.

  4. Aesthetic enhancement - A well-constructed fence with a gate that compliments the design and style of your house can greatly improve the overall appearance of your home. It can also add to the element of your landscaping and garden design.

  5. Pool safety - In Australia, all homes with a swimming pool are required to add a pool fence that complies with Australian pool fence regulations. This is to lessen the incidents of swimming pool-related fatalities and injuries especially among young children and pets.

  6. Containment of livestock - A fence is also built around non-residential properties such as farms to keep livestock within your property limits.

Now that you have a better idea of the advantages of having a fence, it is now time to see the different types of fences that you can choose from. The type of fence that you select will depend on your budget, the design of your house, and the main reason for adding a fence. If you want privacy for example, you need to choose a fence that blocks off most of the view and the noise from the outside.

Types of fences

  1. Aluminium fence - This is one of the most popular types of fencing available because it is very easy to maintain. However, it is not as strong as you may think and is normally not recommended in areas that experience severe weather.

  2. Wood fence - This type of fence can be found almost anywhere in the world. Wooden fences give a home a warm and welcoming feeling and are relatively inexpensive. However, the height and the size of the fence can of course affect the overall cost. The lifespan and quality of your wooden fence will also depend on the type of wood that will be used.

  3. Vinyl fence - Another favorite among homeowners and contractors when it comes to fences is the vinyl fence. Aside from being affordable, it is five times stronger and more flexible than wood. It is also fairly easy to maintain and has a long lifespan.

  4. Wrought iron fence - This type of fence is known for its strength and beauty. It is also one of the more expensive fencing options since wrought iron fences are custom made. It also requires a little bit of maintenance every two to three years to maintain its appearance.

  5. Colorbond fence - Colorbond fences are made from quality galvanized steel and finished with a long lasting and durable coloured finish. This is the perfect choice if you are looking for a low-maintenance fence with a long lifespan.

How much will it cost to install a fence

The cost of putting up a fence is one of the main concerns among homeowners who are thinking of adding a fence on their property. The price of hiring a fence contractor may vary depending on the business and also the type of fence that will be installed. The size of your property as well as the materials that will be used will also affect the amount that you will be spending.

"Benny and his team are the best tradesmen I have used in quite some time. Punctual, efficient, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. My new fence will outstand the test of time due to the workmanship and quality of product used. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any future job you are looking for. 100% satisfied. Well done. It has been a pleasure doing business with you." - Vince from Taylors Lake, VIC

"Excellent service, prompt reply, and quote. Good quality workmanship and fitted our job in quickly. John is very easy to liaise with, kept us informed about progress, and explained about the differences with fence materials including nails and concrete. Even my neighbour asked him for his details to replace fences for their new property in another suburb while he was putting up ours." - Lisa from Balwyn, VIC
