Finding Fencing And Gate Professionals In Christchurch

Business is booming in Christchurch. With the Christchurch Rebuild in full swing indicating peak growth for CHCH, the Crusaders doing well even with AMI Stadium not nearly big enough for international games, New Zealand Cup and Show week bringing in the tourism dollars, and public transport in Christchurch on the rise, the city is recovering well.

There’s optimism and hope among central business owners and steady tourism growth is pushing up confidence.

If you have property in Christchurch that needs a fencing or gate professionals’ attendance, then you will find what you need here.

Jobs that fence and gate contractors can look after:

  • Removal of old fences and gates
  • Fence repairs
  • Gate repairs
  • New fence installation
  • New gate installation, including driveway gates, path gates and front gates

These tradies can work with a range of materials including timber, steel, wrought iron, trellis, concrete and vinyl.

Qualifications a fencer may hold

Although it is not an industry requirement, sometimes your fencing contractor may have completed their National Certificate in Fencing, or even the National Certificate in Agriculture which has a fencing part to it. These certificates are offered at levels 2, 3 and 4.

Before you jump into a new project

With a front fence on your property, the best thing to do is look at the design of other people’s yards in your street. Are they mainly brick walls? Picket fences? Low or high gates? Also you will need to look at the style of your house and the surrounds. Pick something that is fitting with the style of your house and your street.

With side and back fences for your property, you will want to discuss what you want with your neighbours. The Fencing Act of 1978 dictates that you must come to an agreement with your neighbour/s about cost, height and materials of the fence.The Fencing Act of 1978 dictates that you must come to an agreement with your neighbour/s about cost, height and materials of the fence. 

Be wary that if you can’t come to an agreement about sharing costs, you might have to foot the bill for the entire fence yourself, which can end up being quite steep. If you can't come to an agreement about the fence type then you may wish to build next to the fence on your side.

See if you can decide on a style that works for both of your properties. If you can’t come to an agreement here, you might like to paint your side of the fence, or put up some trellis and cover with plants to detract from the style.

Cost

For your perimeter fence, you will hopefully, as we’ve mentioned above, be able to split the costs with your neighbours/s. If you’d like to install a new wooden fence, the cost for a 1.8 metre high, 71 metre long fence would come to between $10,200 and $23,700 if it is painted. For a vinyl fence with the same measurements you would be looking at between $5,000 and $8,500.

The cost of removing the same length of fence (assuming you’re going to need to rip up your old fencing to install the new one) would come in somewhere between $2,700 and $5,500.

Installing a new automatic driveway gate should set you back around $2,800 to $6,100, while the manual version should be around $920 to $2,600.

Once you put up your ad on Builderscrack you can start to get a better idea of how much your job will cost and sit back while fencing and gate professionals contact you.
