What Fence is Right for Your Property?

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Fences say a lot about a property and who owns it.  Whether it is residential, commercial or even industrial property the first thing seen and thus first impression given off  is  the fence.  It is important to have a secure, aesthetically pleasing, affordable and modern fence for any property, but with so many choices out there, what fence is right for you?

Colorbond: Colorbond is a popular choice for residents of Karratha and other Western Australian towns and it is easy to see why.   It always looks great, it comes in 14 colours and has clean, crisp lines on both sides of the fence.  Colorbond is installed to with hold cyclones, bush fires and is resistant to termites.  You will most often see this fencing in suburbia.

Security Chain-wire Fencing: Chain-mesh fencing is the preferred fence for secure perimeters.   It is not just used to keep people in but also out.  It is often used for prisons, railways, tennis courts, power stations, schools and parks.  It comes in a variety of colours and sizes to suit the need.

Gladiator Fencing:  Gladiator fencing is another popular fence for schools as its tough, tall but open and airy.  The fence is strong, pre-galvanised and finished in the colour of your choice and with a powder coating.  Gladiator fences are manufactured to Australian Standards and come in an array of thicknesses and heights.

Pool Fencing:  Australia gets hot, really hot so lots of Aussies invest in a pool.  If you are lucky enough to have a pool you need a fence and gate to avoid tragic accidents.  Thankfully pool fencing is now stylish and comes in a range of colours and styles.  You can pick from Colorbond, gladiator, wooden, hedge or brick.

Wooden Fences:  Wooden fences are classic and aesthetically pleasing.  They are good for towns that don’t get too much rain and are cheap to install.  The humble fence still has its merits but is losing popularity as it’s high maintenance and someone gets stuck with the “ugly side”.

Stone, Brick and Concrete Walls:  Heavy walls made of stone and brick are being used less as fences and more as retaining walls.  They make a stylish and sturdy addition to any backyard and are a landscapers dream to work with.  They are practical and come in a range of gorgeous styles.

No matter what style you choose you need to ensure a professional installs your new fence.  Australia is prone to flooding, cyclones and extreme heat.  Don’t let the weather get away with your fence!
