Building a Fence to Protect Your Property Howdy! If you are planning to build a fence on your property, you will want to make sure you make the right choice. A good fence will last for many years and will help to protect your property from intruders and wild animals. It will also help to keep pets and kids inside the garden where they belong! I'm Tony and this is my fence blog. Last year, I spend a couple of months working alongside a fence contractor as he installed a wooden fence on my property. I learnt a lot of neat stuff which I would like to share with the rest of the world.




Are you thinking of getting a fence-lift? But are wondering how to start the process of getting a new fence supplied and installed? Well, a great place to start would be at your local fence supply and installation service company.

Your local fencing expert is likely to offer you great advice on the most suitable type of fence for your kind of climate, and even information on fencing regulations in your area. Also, the expert will be able to guide you when choosing a particular type of fence: there are many types of fences in the market, and you can easily get confused when choosing one kind without proper guidance. Here is a look at some of the common types of fencing materials used to make fences:

  • Timber

Timber fences have been a popular choice amongst homeowners for centuries because timber is widely available. Timber is the preferred choice for picket fences and split rail fences. You can also use timber to create a partition (something in-between fence) between your neighbour's compound and your own compound. One of the biggest advantages of timber fences is that they are aesthetically pleasing.

  • Aluminium Slat Fencing

Your fence supply expert is likely to recommend aluminium slat fencing due to its numerous advantages. For instance, aluminium fences are aesthetically pleasing: In fact, these types of fences offer a classy and a modern kind of appeal. They are versatile which makes them suitable for a wide range of décor preferences. In addition, aluminium is also strong, thus offering your home adequate security, and it also fairs well against most natural elements such as strong winds. Aluminium material is also corrosion resistant, thus a suitable fencing choice for those who live in the humid parts of Australia.

  • Colourbond Fencing

Colourbond fencing material is a type of coated steel product. These types of fences are long-lasting and strong enough to withstand most drastic weather conditions. Colourbond fences don't easily get burnt by bush-fires or the sun, like their timber counterparts.

Colourbond fences are available in a variety of designer colours: This means that you're likely to find a suitable colour that goes well with your property's colour scheme. Also, colourbond fences are easy to maintain; all you need to do is wash them with water or hose them down once in a while to get rid of dirt and grime. 

A reliable fence supply expert should be able to help you choose a fencing material that offers functionality, security, and one that will also be aesthetically pleasing.
