Call us today to discuss what is available and we will organise to come out and meet you at your site.
How high can I build my fence?
This question depends on where the fence is located on your property. It’s best to check with your local council before you begin building your fence, to ensure it complies with their rules and regulations as each council can differ.
Will you take away the old fence and how much does that cost?
Yes we can take away the old fence. Generally this will cost around $15/metre and is factored into the initial quote.
What styles of fencing can I choose from?
We custom design and manufacture our fencing so the choices are endless. If you have a particular fence design in mind or a photo of something you would like, then please let us know.
I have been approached by my neighbour to contribute to half of our shared boundary fence. Am I required to pay half of any type of fence?
The Fences Act (VIC) states that ‘adjoining owners are liable to contribute in equal proportions to the carrying out of fencing work in respect of a dividing fence of a standard not greater than the standard for a sufficient dividing fence’ – Click here to view the Victoria Fences Act 2014 Amendment
What if my neighbour wants a fence over and above what is deemed a standard for a sufficient dividing fence?
You are only required to contribute up to the cost of half of what is deemed the cost of a standard fence. If your neighbour wishes to erect a fence over and above this, they are responsible for the extra cost associated with that fence – Refer to the Victoria Fences Act for further details – Click here to view the Victoria Fences Act 2014 Amendment
