A new fence can bring your home a new breath of life. Make the most of your chance to enhance your own special place with a great look and a style that suits your needs and taste.

There are many reasons for wanting a new fence.

Does your dog keep running away or are neighborhood pets getting into your yard? Are your kids safe in the yard? Maybe your windows are in plain view for your neighbours? You want protection and privacy. It’s time to get a better fence! Where do you start?

Jim’s Fencing is the answer. We’re the fencing specialists who understand all the ins and outs. Here’s a list of expert tips to help you choose your new fence.

The first step is to take your time. Don’t rush the process. Do plenty of research. It will save you time and money by covering anything you need to know or ask.

1) Why do you need a new fence?

Before you go ahead and get a brand-new fence installed, it’s a good time to ask yourself why you’re getting it. Noisy neighbours? Sounds like you’ll need something tall and solid, that’s capable of blocking out sound and creating privacy. If it’s the case of the dog escaping, perhaps your basic chain wire fence is more the go. What if you need something that does all of the above? No stress. A fence can function in so many ways but the most important task at hand is to figure out which one suits your needs best. When you need a helping hand, give our team at Jim’s Fencing a call. We can put you in touch with your local fencing specialists who can help you make that decision as simple as possible.

2) What sort of fence would you like?

You might prefer a dreamy white picket fence and enjoy the maintenance of staining and sealing. But what if you just don’t have the time to deal with materials that warp and rot over time? Amazingly, you can create the look without the hard work of looking after it. Low maintenance material like vinyl creates the look of wood without the hard yakka. Other durable and hard-wearing materials include aluminium, iron, steel and Colorbond. Jim’s Fencing has a huge range to choose from.

3) Who should you get to install your fence?

There are a lot of people out there who say they can install your fence. You may even think you could just do it yourself. You want to make sure you’re getting the job done right without extra cost and wasted time in fixing things that have gone horribly wrong. Getting a professional to install your fence gives you the confidence about the workmanship and the quality of fencing. Where do you find a reliable and professional fence installer you can trust? At Jim’s Fencing, we offer a free online quote and our fully trained fencing specialists are the experts you can rely on. That’s why we offer a 100% quality guarantee. It doesn’t get better than that!

4) What regulations do you need to know?

It’s tempting to just go ahead and put up a fence as soon as possible. Warning! There are strict guidelines and regulations that apply to your state and council area. Have you considered the height, the materials and look of the fence? Do you need a building permit? It’s also important to know how far a fence needs to be set back from the footpath and property boundaries. Spoken to your neighbours about it first?

You could waste and lot of time and money making a big mistake if you don’t do your homework. There’s a lot to consider but it doesn’t need to be a headache. Your local Jim’s Fencing specialists are the experienced professionals who can answer your questions, guide you through the process and know the local legal guidelines. Whatever the fence, it makes sense to call Jim’s Fencing. Here’s a handy link to more information on regulations: Australian Fencing Standards

5) What access would you like?

If you need frequent access to pathways, roadways, or parks, installing a gate is the perfect option as part of your new fence. There are a variety of gates to choose from that can even be custom-made to suit the style of your home. Have a browse through our selection of gates and choose the one that compliments your front or back garden.

6) Does your new fence come with a warranty?

Only the best in the business offer warranties. Cut the costs of repairs from the very start. Harm from harsh weather? Kids or pets causing some damage? It pays to get a quality fence that gives you peace of mind. If anything should go wrong, like a wild storm or kids going wild, you rest assured your fence will be back to its former glory in almost no time at all. Make your life easy.
