5 Ways to Get Your Fencing and Gate Choices Completely Wrong

A great fence or gate can not only improve the look of your house, but even improve your house’s worth! However, get it wrong, and you’ll be wasting your investment fixing up the mistakes. Here at Fencemakers, we are in the business of delivering fences of the highest quality that not only look great, but meet our clients’ unique needs as well. Read on for some of the most common mistakes people make when choosing fencing and how you can avoid them.

Choosing the Wrong Dimensions to Meet Council Regulations

Smartwood Gates

Each suburb throughout Western Australia has its own unique laws and regulations when it comes to fencing. Many homeowners purchase a fence based on its appearance and their own personal taste without taking into account whether or not a particular fence is legal in their neighbourhood.

Regulations can cover factors like the materials used and the amount of visibility required between the slats, among other things. Before installing a new fence or gate, take the time to research the rules in your area. This will save you a lot of time, hassle, and money down the track and can prevent you from being subjected to costly fines or having to replace your fence altogether.

Choosing a Sub-Par Supplier

In many cases, buyers make their selection for a fencing supplier based solely on the quality of the slats or posts. However, this is not the only factor that needs to be taken into account – the small details are just as crucial to the lifespan of the fencing. The quality of the hinges, screws, and welding work is of the utmost important to the structure. After all, that is what keeps your fence together over the years. When looking at a supplier’s samples, don’t just look at the materials used; look at the connections between parts as well to get a full picture of that supplier’s offerings.

Not Taking into Account Opening Space

Classique Gate

Gates need to be able to open freely. For a gate that opens outward, you’ll need to make sure that it does not extend so far as to block any footpaths in front of your home. If the gate opens inward, you’ll need to take care that it can swing back closed once your car is in the driveway. You don’t want your gate to dent or scratch the back of your car on the way. For both types of swinging gates, elevation changes, like the slope of your driveway, need to be considered so that the gate doesn’t scrape along the ground at any point throughout its arc. With sliding gates, there needs to be enough room on your property for the gate to slide all the way open to allow your car to pass through.

Choosing a Style that Clashes with Your Home’s Architecture

Once again, choosing a fence based on what looks nice in a showroom in isolation can get you in trouble. You might end up with a fence installed that takes away from your home’s architectural style and nothing you can do about it now. Not to mention getting your neighbours backs up if the style looks out of place on your street.

Decorative Screen Gate Leaf Laser Cut

Rather than looking at the fence on its own, you’ll need to imagine what it will look like in front of your house. Modern homes look great with slat fencing or decorative screen fencing, while country-style homes look better with a traditional white picket fence. For luxury homes, a more ornate tubular steel fencing style is probably a more suitable option.

Choosing the Wrong Materials for Coastal Locations

With so many homes in Perth being near the coast, it is important to choose the right fencing materials to be able to stand up to the coastal climate. Steel fencing needs to be galvanised or powder-coated to prevent it from rusting due to the extra moisture in the air. Aluminium can be a better option in these areas, as it is virtually immune to the effects of the weather. Timber fencing is difficult to maintain in coastal regions, requiring constant upkeep to prevent it from rotting or warping.

Do your research and make sure you choose and install the best fence and gate for your property. That way it will be in place for years to come – with little or no upkeep from you. If you need any guidance, our friendly staff are on hand to answer any questions you might have – just get in touch!
