A Quick Guide to Fencing And Gate Professionals In Wellington

Love them or hate them, if there’s one thing that is always shared between neighbours, it is your fence. When you need to install a new fence, a new gate, or simply make repairs on existing structures you need to find yourself a fencing and gate professional in Wellington.

Your garden might not look quite like the Wellington Botanic Gardens or Eden Garden, but keeping a smart boundary around your yard will help your house to be more secure and neaten the place up.

Fencing contractors know how to correctly build fences to stand strong against the high winds in Wellington that buffet the city.

What sort of jobs do fencing and gate contractors do?

  • Tearing down old fences
  • Removing old gates
  • Repairing fences (depending on condition)
  • Installing new fences
  • Installing new gates
  • Building picket fences
  • Installing new pool fencing

They work with materials such as aluminium, wrought iron, steel and other metals, concrete, brick, wood (including pine) and trellis.

What do I need to consider?

If you are building a new fence you will want to look carefully at the style of your house and other houses in the street. Everywhere in the city is different: you may have art deco style, British colonial, or old weatherboard. Pick a fence style, material and colours to match the style of both your house and your neighbours. Make sure you decide on this together!

If you are after a new driveway gate then you will want to determine the material (metal is popular) and the style of opening mechanism you’d like to have. Manually opened? Spring loaded? An electric gate? Sliding gate? Think about what would work best for your space and for your budget.

How much will it cost?

This depends all on what the job is and the materials that are required.

For fencing, a 51 metre fence built 1.8 metres high will cost you around $12,500 to $24,000 in aluminium and between $5,400 to $17,000 in timber, depending heavily on whether it is painted. Remember, with fences you can often share the cost with your neighbour. To remove a 51 metre fence would cost generally between $2,000 to $3,900.

If you’re after a driveway gate it will cost between $920 and $6,100 depending on whether it is manually or automatically opened. Pathway gates will cost between $250 and $1,200, depending on the material used.

How do I hire them?

By putting up your project on Builderscrack you can have the contractor chase you to do your job. Include specifics about what you would like (or different options that you are considering) and the area that the project will involve.

You may receive a ballpark figure on the cost of the works (materials + manual labour time) but be sure to have the tradesman sight your property before agreeing to anything. You should receive a written quote before proceeding with works, and consider getting two or three quotes before starting work. If you are sharing the cost with your neighbour/s ensure they are also happy with the tradesperson you've selected and the final cost.

Keeping Puppies Safe - One Gate at a Time

Zeppelin, the Swedish Vallhund, has been a long awaited addition to one couples home. But before this bundle of energy could be let outside, some backyard gate improvements were necessary... MJ's dream dog had always been a Swedish Vallhund. After moving to Christchurch and settling in, the time was finally right to make this dream come true. MJ and her husband, Josh, tracked down a breeder, got themselves on the list, and settled in to wait for their ball of fluff to arrive. Once they got word their new family member was on his way, they went about preparing for his arrival. At the top of the list was "puppy proofing" their backyard gate. The Problem They wanted to feel secure letting Zeppelin out into the backyard without the worry of him escaping, and their existing gate wasn't doing enough in the way of reassurance. The gate was wire mesh, potentially "quite chewable" for those razor sharp milk teeth. This is where Builderscrack enters the story... The Solution MJ, a self conf
