Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for my contractor to build a fence around my property?
Since fence projects are usually custom, there are multiple factors that go into the building process and how long it takes. That being said, 200m of simple wooden fencing can take between 2 and 4 days. Talk to your contractor and make sure you get an estimate for the timeline before hiring them.
Does a fence increase the value of my home?
While a fence around your front yard may reduce the street appeal of your home, a fence in the backyard can increase the value of your property. Added security measures are always a bonus!
Do I have to put a fence around my pool?
There is no legal requirement saying that your pool must have a fence around it, but there are certain rules about what the fence can look like. According to Access Canberra, safety fences and gates must be at least 1.2m high with non-climbable vertical supports and no gaps exceeding 100mm. These rules are to prevent small children from accidentally falling into the pool.
What is the most secure kind of fence?
There are many ways that you can make your fence more secure. Metal materials will always be better than wood simply because they are more durable. You can also make your fence taller, face the rough side inwards, and add anti-climbing spikes for extra security.
Can I paint my side of my neighbour’s fence?
The maintenance of shared fences on private property is usually a matter resolved between the property owners. As long as you communicate with your neighbour about what you want to do with the fence and they agree, there should be no issues with painting your side of the fence.
