Fences, like many home improvements, are regulated by Australian laws. Every state has their fencing law. The rules that determine how fences are to be divided also differ from one state to another.

There are equally various fencing standards regarding fencing materials, which include aluminium, timber, as well as other materials. Fences ought to be adequately constructed. If it will be a timber fence, the post has to be treated to avoid rotting.

The factors that influence the cost of new fence

Your location also determines the cost of a new fence. To get correct quotes online for fencing, you should consider these five things:

  1. Look for the fence type or material type you seek
  2. Get the measurement of where you intend to fence
  3. Input the fence’s height
  4. State the topography of where the fence will be situated, sloping or flat.
  5. Will the fencing job include the removal of the old fence?

Fences are rated in standard heights like:

  • 9m
  • 2m
  • 5m
  • 8m
  • 1m

If you want yours to be different from these standard heights, the cost of the job could be higher.
