iSeekplant makes finding top-rated and quality fencing companies so easy using our extensive database. Your project may be time-consuming and complicated enough without having the added pressure of finding a reliable fence company to work with.
We’ll narrow down the best choices by providing you with quotes and reviews for comparison. When it comes to finding the right fencing contractor or temporary fencing supplier for your project, iSeekplant should be your first step.
Fencing installation can be a tricky project. On the one hand, it seems like some good old elbow grease, a few days of dedication, and the right tools could help you get the job done.
On the other hand, much of the installation process could run into complications because posts need to be dug and the fence needs to be secured against certain elements.
So, choosing the best fencing contractor comes down to a few ‘pro’ tips:
Above all this, professional fencing contractors should be ready with detailed answers to the most common questions. It is important that you ask if the fence company will be responsible for obtaining permits, finding utility lines, knowing about legal hindrances like zoning, if they can handle graded lots, and what they’re estimated timeline is for the project.
As you can imagine, fencing contractor prices go beyond just materials and labour. The final cost for your fence is about the scope of the entire project. So the factors reflected in your quote may include:
On average, a professional fencing company can cost anywhere from $60 to $1,200 per metre. For fairly ‘standard’ projects, without too many ‘added’ complications, you can expect a fence company to charge you around $2,500 to $3,500 for the final project.
This is one of the best ways to gauge the quality of a professional fencing company. Fencing contractors should know how long your particular installation will take after the site evaluation. They should have a clear process and available team ready for deployment.
Besides the more complicated sites, which may extend your project to a week or so, most fence installations should take between one and three days. So, yes, technically your fence could be installed in a day if it’s a fairly simple project.
Homeowners are often surprised to learn that they may need permission to install a fence. First of all, the most obvious ‘permission’ you need to gain is that of your neighbour’s. Though it may seem informal and insignificant, a dividing fence may also affect your neighbour. So make sure to speak with them about the plans before engaging the services of a professional fencing company.
Next, the Australian state or territory you live in decides how to regulate and legislate the building of fences in your area. In some states, local councils require you to obtain a building permit from the municipality. However, this is not true in Victoria, just as long as the build is ‘self-regulated’ and all provisions are followed.
Any fence company contractor should be able to identify requirements for permits in cases such as:
Without a doubt, the cheapest fence is a wire fence. To be clear, this is barbed wire fencing, not chain link fencing. For just the materials alone, barbed wire shouldn’t cost you more than about $2 per metre. Chain link fencing may cost you anywhere from $10 to $20 per metre.
Another equally cheap option is split rail fencing. However, the cost for this varies quite a bit because there are several materials you could use, including wood, wire and vinyl. It can cost you between $3 and $20 per metre.
