Top Fencing related questions

The average cost of a new fence is $150 per metre. This will vary based on two factors: materials (fencing cost per metre) and installation labour (which usually takes one to three days).

Fence installation can take 3-5 days, from removing old fence panels to installing a new fence. Working time may vary depending on your fencing contractor's availability and skill level. Also, more complex fencing needs may take more time to complete. For example, wooden fencing may require more time to build than assembly-ready aluminium fences. Please confirm timelines with your fencing contractor based on your specific project needs.

Lifespans of fences vary from material to material. Wooden fences may last 10-12 years, while Colorbond fencing can last for 60 years or more. However, extreme weather and wood-damaging pests can shorten the service life of your fence. But regular and proper maintenance can extend the life of your fence for as long as possible.

The best type of fence for your home will depend on your budget and specific needs. Chicken coop fencing is a cheap and practical option if you’re on a limited budget. Meanwhile, an iron-wrought fence offers durability and a modern look. You can find fencing contractors for any type of fencing on Airtasker.

You should opt for a fence replacement if a repair would take too much time, money, and effort. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to replace your entire fence if more than 20% of your fence panels are damaged. On the other hand, some fencing issues may be repairable, such as warping, discolouration, or cracks. If you’re unsure whether to repair or replace your fence, your fencing contractors can advise you on the best solution.

Yes. You may include fencing materials in your request. Willing fencing contractors can pick up your preferred fence panels from your local home improvement store, such as Good Neighbour Fencing from Stratco. This way, you don’t have to carve out time to do the shopping yourself. Alternatively, you can provide the fencing material and simply hire qualified fencing contractors to put up your fence.

Yes, fencing contractors can also help with such related fencing needs. Hire a fencing contractor to secure your fence to prevent your puppy from squeezing through. Your fencing contractors can come over to attach a plastic trellis or mesh in between your fence gaps. With a secure fence, your puppy will be able to enjoy your outdoor area without you worrying about them running off into the street.

Yes. To help you, here are specific questions about security fencing answered:

  1. What are the basic requirements of fencing security?

    First, you'll need to determine the material you want to use. Some fence companies recommend using chain link, vinyl, aluminium, or steel fencing for anti-climb fences. Next, you'll want to determine the height of your fence and if you'd like to add fence toppings like razor wire or spikes. Finally, you'll need to check with your local community if your desired design is permitted in your area.
  2. What is the best fence for security?

    Mesh panel fencing and palisade fencing with pointed spikes are two rather popular choices for high-security fencing. Just their appearance can deter potential intruders, and they are practically impossible to climb. Want to place additional security measures around your property? You can get outdoor lights or a security system installed by a local specialist. Simply select the “Post a task” button on this page to get started. 
  3. Can a Tasker install electric fencing?

    This depends on the security fencing specialists near you! If you’d like to put up electric fencing, put this in your task post and wait for local installers to send their offers. Depending on where you live, you may want to look into any rules or building codes regarding electric fences. For other electrical needs, you can contact a local electrician through our platform.
  4. What can I put on a fence to stop burglars?

    Some common burglar deterrents include thorny plants, barbed wire and razor tape, broken glass, fence spikes, spinning fence toppings, and anti-climb paint. Adding these to the top of your security fencing can instantly make them an anti-climb fence. You can also ask a local security fencing specialist about other methods for preventing intruders from getting into your property. They will be happy to recommend additional ways to protect your home or office. 

  5. How long does it take to install security fencing for a commercial area?

    This will depend on how large the perimeter is and if there are additional features needed for your fencing. Usually, it takes only one to three days to put up a fence. When you hire a Tasker, they will typically give an estimate for the project duration. Want to beef up your security while waiting for a local installer to put up the fence? You can book a nearby CCTV installation specialist through our platform. 
  6. If I live near the sea, will galvanising protect my fence?

    Yes, it will. If you want to put up metal security fencing around your coastal property, choosing galvanised stainless steel with UV protection can make your investment last longer. Make sure to use this same material since non-stainless steel can still rust, and galvanising won’t protect the fence from UV damage and moisture. If you need help sourcing galvanised stainless steel or looking for the necessary coating materials, you can ask a local security fencing installer to help you out. 

Yes. To help you, here are specific questions about security fencing answered:

  1. What is palisade fencing?

    Some common burglar deterrents include thorny plants, barbed wire and razor tape, broken glass, fence spikes, spinning fence toppings, and anti-climb paint. Adding these to the top of your security fencing can instantly make them an anti-climb fence. You can also ask a local security fencing specialist about other methods for preventing intruders from getting into your property. They will be happy to recommend additional ways to protect your home or office. 
  2. What engineering standards cover palisade fencing?

    This may depend on your location and community. According to, for example, there are specifications for steel palisade fencing that covers galvanising, steel grade, and the strength of nuts, bolts, and washers. Their regulations also specify bedding concrete grade. There are also British Standards for wooden palisade fences (BS 1722-5:2006). To ensure that your wooden or metal palisade fencing complies with engineering standards and building codes, ask the Tasker you hire for their licence and certifications.
  3. How do you install a palisade fence?

    - Mark off the perimeter and make sure that any utility lines won't get hit while digging.
    - Dig a hole for each post, following the manufacturer's instructions.
    - Use concrete and gravel to support the posts, then check that they're level.
    - Once the concrete has set and the posts are secure, install the rails and pales.
    - Hang the gate. 
  4. What should I watch out for when choosing a wooden palisade fence?

    Wood palisade fencing looks great and adds a classic look to your property. It's also a natural material, and bamboo fencing is seen as "eco-trendy" since it's a type of wood that grows back quickly. What you do need to watch out for when working with wood is its durability. Untreated wood is particularly attractive to rot and bugs. Plus, it requires regular cleaning, refinishing, and treating. And eventually, all wood will warp. 
  5. What are some common problems with steel fencing?

    If you choose to install a metal or steel palisade fencing, note that the design may not work with the look you envision for your home. Next, some types of metal may require regular scraping and painting to get rid of rust and other signs of wear. The good thing about choosing a metal palisade fence, though, is that you get a long-lasting, inexpensive, and generally low-maintenance way to secure your property.
  6. What questions should I ask my palisade fencing installers?

    - What materials do you usually work with?
    - Can I see photos of your most recent projects?
    - Can we see your licence and certifications?
    - Who will obtain the building permits and talk to the utility companies?
    - What's the warranty period for the palisade fence?
    - Can you haul my old fence away (if applicable)?
    - Can you treat or stain my wooden fence?
