Key considerations for choosing steel fencing in Melbourne and Greater Victoria

Below you can find a comprehensive guide that can assist you in making an informed decision regarding choosing steel fencing that you would be happy with.

  1. Firstly, determine the fencing requirements. The following needs and factors should be taken into consideration:
    1. The purpose of your steel fencing: privacy, security, aesthetics
    2. The measurements (height and width)
    3. Desired style (tubular steel fencing, Colorbond steel fencing, Modwood fencing, aluminium fencing, etc.)
    4. Other features or functionalities of the fencing. For example, gates and whether they should be manual or automatic gates.
  2. Know the local regulations regarding fencing. Google search can go a long way as you should familiarise yourself with local regulations in order to comply with any legal requirements and restrictions in place to avoid any problems in the future.
  3. What material are you going to choose for your fencing? If you are looking for something strong, durable and weather-resistant, you may consider steel fencing options. 
  4. Additional features of your fencing that will protect it from corrosion. These include choosing galvanized or powder coated finishes, or both.
  5. Choosing the fencing style does not only incorporate choosing the fencing alternative, as mentioned in the first point. You have to also consider other aspects of choosing steel fencing that will complement your home. For example, do you prefer vertical or horizontal slat designs, any additional decorative patterns/ornaments, or have a unique design in mind that you would like to see come to life?
  6. When it comes to security measurements, there are also some factors to take into consideration:
    1. Adding an anti-climb design
    2. Adding reinforced panels
    3. Integrating a secure locking mechanism
    4. Perhaps adding security cameras?
  7. To keep any fencing functioning as it is supposed to for years, it is important to maintain the fencing. The longevity of the fence will depend on whether you will clean it regularly and fix any damage that has occurred.
  8. Find a reputable fencing supplier/contractor in Melbourne. Most fencing specialists will assist you in choosing steel fencing that will suit your home. They will provide free fencing quotes and advise on any warranties that come with the job.
  9. Read Reviews. Online reviews can provide a good insight if the fencing contractor is offering a good quality services and is reliable. Recommendations from your family, friends and even local businesses can go a long way.
