We are writing about 6 of the most environmentally friendly fence types. Wrought Iron Fences, Wood Fences, Aluminum Fences, Vinyl Fences, Farm Fences and Commercial Fences all are either constructed with biodegradable materials and are recycling friendly and some of these product are even made using recycled materials.
Wrought Iron Fences have been around for many years and there are some beautiful examples of these fences scattered around Brisbane, some dating back well over a 100 years . Over 90% of Wrought Iron Fences are made to order so you can customize your fence how ever you please.
Wrought Iron Fences are probably the most durable fence available today. They are sturdy and can withstand the harshest of treatment. Restoring even a 100 year old wrought iron fence is a simple task and only requires a little scraping and sanding along with a lick of paint and your done. The sky is the limit to design and style.
Unless well maintained can rust and paint can fall away over the years. Maintenance is simple and only require a wax or oil every year or so to help prevent rust. Washing the fence in order to keep dust, grime and even salt off the fence every couple of months will add years to the fences finish and of cause keep your fence looking like new.
Timber fences are quick to install easy to maintain and can last many years. An overall popular and good choice.
Pine and cedar are commonly used and are a cost effective choice. Timber fences are great for privacy and are made from natural durable materials. Painting and varnish is an easy option.
Timber fences are heavy and will turn grey over time if not maintained with a good sealer.
Maintenance is a must if you want to keep your fence in new looking condition. You will find yourself having to use a Timber preservative water repellent sealer every year. If your fence is painted it will need to be scraped back and painted every couple of years.
Choosing to go with an Aluminium fence will ensure that you have a virtually maintenance free fence.
Prefabricated panels available in many colours and styles. Commonly being powder coated means an Aluminium fence never requires paining. Lightweight and durable. Aluminium Fences last for many years and can be recycled. Aluminium fences unfortunately can be dented fairly easy and it is recommend to not work or play with any hard object and a close proximity of the fence.
Maintenance is super easy, simply wash with soapy water to remove dust and grime as often as required .
Vinyl fences look great and are very cost effective they are available in a multitude of colours and styles and never need to be painted or stained. Termites are of course not going to take up residents in the Vinyl Fence and dry rot and fungus are none existent.
A Vinyl Fence will usually cost more when comparing to a Timber Fence. Some Vinyl Fences can have issues with mildew though it is very easy to wash away. Vinyl Fences are durable and can be more difficult and costly to repair, though repairs are rarely required. Another great thing about Vinyl Fences is that they are virtually maintenance free
Well-designed fences are essential on any property. Many different materials can be used including Creosote, Permapine, Barbed Wire, Plain Wire Electric, Crosslock / Gridlock and Wire Mesh
Crosslock/Gridlock are fabricated with small squares which makes it virtually impossible for small animals to escape while Wire Mesh is ideal for keeping larger animals like horses in. Wire Mesh has a V design and will not allow animals hooves to get through the fence. Barb wire has been a commonly used material for Farm fences in Australia for well over a century and is very effective for animals with thick hides, however Barbed Wire fences have a downside for animals determined to escape the fence as they can cause injury to the animal and are therefor not recommend for flighty or nervous animals such as horses. Electric wire fences are a great option for animals that are sensitive to barb wire and prone to injury. Electric fences are the best choice when keeping a mix of animals such as cows and horses in a single perimeter.
