Expert Tips

Automate your gate

An automated gate will add value to your home, but has many other benefits including: improving your home's security, keeping pets on your property, preventing energetic children from wandering off, keeping out unwanted visitors, adding great kerb appeal and it can even lower your insurance premiums due to the additional security. Call your local fencing and gate expert to go through the options available for your home.



Don't DIY Pool Fencing

There are lots of DIY jobs that you can do around the home but installing pool fencing shouldn’t be one of them. There are complex regulations regarding fence height, distances between the fence, pool and house, not to mention leaving the correct gaps at the bottom of the fence. You will also have to make sure that the gate is balanced for easy self-closing and self-latching. Call your local fencing professional to make sure your pool fencing is fully-compliant and keeps everyone safe.



Check first, save time
Don’t forget to check with your local council when planning a new fence. Every suburb in Perth and WA has its own fence height regulations and local councils also have strict regulations regarding gaps between slat fencing at the front of a property. This could save a lot of time when it comes to getting your new fence.



Don’t get stuck
When planning a new access gate at the side of your home, think about how it will be used. If you’re going to be moving lawnmowers, wheelbarrows or other bulky items, a more spacious opening may be required. Your local fencing & gate specialist can offer help and advice on the best solution for your needs.



Fuss-free fencing
While a timber fence is a lovely addition to any home, it will be susceptible to dry and wet rot, and will require some maintenance. Instead, try an alternative composite timber or aluminium fence. It will look great, requires little maintenance and won’t crack, peel, warp or rot.
