FencingA fence is designed to divide off an area and restrict access to it. It will keep people out, or pets and children in. A good fence will provide both security and peace of mind.

A good fencing and gate contractor works with you to decide on the style and height of a fence that works in with your home and gardens needs as well as meeting any legal requirements. Then they’ll install it and provide information on maintenance.  As fences and gates must complement the gradient of your property and the soil, your contractor will need to take these into account.  If you’re unsure where your boundary is they will be able to commission a survey to make sure your fence goes in the right place.

Fencing is best done by experienced professional tradespeople. There’s a wide range of fence materials available such as brick, metal, wire mesh or timber. Timber fences are great for providing windbreaks and offering a wide variety of styles. Brick is a sturdy alternative. A fencing contractor will be able to align posts, assemble gates, construct and repair barriers, attach rails and fencing wire, assemble trellis and all other fence, walls and gate requirements.

The services of a fencing and gates specialist include:

  • Fence and gate assessment and installation
