Top Fencing related questions

Should I get a new fence installed or repair my existing fence?

This will depend on the age and condition of your fence, available materials, and your budget. Whilst you can usually buy some time by replacing broken palings and repairing sections of fence, if the fence itself is unstable, shakes when you wobble it, or is showing rotting posts, then it’s probably time for a new one.

What are the benefits of hiring a fencing contractor to install my fence?

Hiring a fencing contractor to install your fence means your fence will be installed to a professional standard. Trying to DIY without the right tools, equipment or knowledge can lead to a sub-standard fence that may be dangerous or reduce the value of your property.

What type of fence is best?

The best type of fence for your property depends on factors like budget, maintenance needs, any pets, and whether you want visibility or privacy. The most cost-effective options are usually chain link fences and wooden fences, but metal options are less maintenance and more durable.

How long will it take to install my fence?

Most fencing tasks will take 3-5 days, including removal of the old fence, preparation and installation of the new fence. Solid piece fences, like Colorbond are quicker to install than wooden paling fences.

How long will my new fence last?

Wooden fences usually last up to 10-12 years, bricks last for around 50 years, and colorbond can last for 60+ years. Of course, things like floods, falling tree branches, and storms can result in repair/replacement sooner, while maintenance and protections like quality paint can prolong the life of your fence.

How much does a fence installation cost?

The average cost of fence installation is between $130-$550. The price will vary depending on whether you need the old fence removed, the fence type, how long your fence is, if you need gates, and any other extras included.

What does a fence installation or repair include?

Fencing repairs vary depending on your fence type and the degree of damage - your fencing contractor will assess the situation onsite and provide recommendations. But if you need a new fence installed, here’s the process your fencing contractor will take you through:

Step 1: Fence selection

The first step in your fence installation involves deciding what kind of material you need. Some of the most popular fence types include:

Solid panels - Colorbond and Good Neighbour fences are popular options for their durability (termite resistant), low maintenance, timeless classic style, and high privacy. 

Timber - Wood fencing installers in your local area can add value and charm with a neat picket fence for the front yard, a pet-proof fence for the back, or even just do the fence painting and staining for you.

Brick - Brick fence installers can match your fence to the style of your home, and ensure your new fence blends in with neighbouring properties, and even build you a retaining wall.

Glass - Glass fencing is commonly used in pool fencing and balcony fencing.

Chain wire - Chain wire fences are an affordable option, made from wire mesh and held up with metal posts at regular intervals.

Screening - Easily hide an existing fence or create a privacy screen with brushwood fencing or bamboo fencing.

If you’re not sure on what fence to choose, your fencing contractor will help you select and order the most suitable fence for your area.

Step 2: Fence installation prep

Your fence installation will start with site prep. This involves measuring and marking out the fence area, ensuring boundaries are correct, then removing trees and other obstructions. Once the fence line is measured, your contactor will dig holes for the corner, intermediate, and gate posts. 

Step 3: Fence post installation

Next, your fencing contractor will install the end, corner and gate posts, using a quick-set concrete mix. As the concrete sets, they will check that the post is plumb, level, centred on the fence line, and the correct height. Then they’ll install all the posts in between. Your fencing contractor may leave them overnight to allow the concrete to fully set before moving on.

Step 4: Fence panel installation

Once the posts are secure, your fencing installer will attach the fencing material and panelling, ensuring it is secure and stable. They’ll finish off the fence with matching edges and capping, to protect the edges of the fence and internal bits from weather damage and rust. Then your fence installation will install gates and check they open and close smoothly.
