Measuring Your Fencing Project

Look at the site plan on the left. Take a measurement from point A to point F. This gives us the width of your block.

Measure the distance between point B to point C so we know how wide your path is.

Do the same for point D to point E for your driveway. Tell us the distance of your path from the nearest boundary (in this case point A to B), the same for the driveway (point F to E). Remember, measure twice, cut once! Double check your measurements to help ensure wastage is minimized and your costs are kept down. Decide how high you want your fence. Then check to see with your local city council if there are any restrictions on the fence height in your area.

Painting and Maintaining Your Fence

The Timber we supply for your fence is of the most appropriate quality for the job. However, like all timbers, it can be subject to shrinkage and cracking due to the damaging effects of the sun and other environmental factors. It is therefore very important that you paint your fence immediately after construction!

How do I choose the right style of fence for my home?

Your fence should suit the style or your home, your personal tastes and your budget. Come in or even fax us, you can also email to discuss your requirements. At Five Star Fencing and Gates, we pride our selves on our customer service and quality advice.

What information do you need from me to supply a quote for my Fence or Gate?

Take a measurement across your property. Don't forget to measure the width of your drive-way or path. Decide on the height you want for your fence.

What type of materials will be used?

For metal fences we only use BHP Galvanized Steel. Our timber fences our built from quality hardwood, for example (Spotted Gum, Red Gum, Iron Bark, Jarrah, Merbu, Tasmanian oak).

Planning and Design of Your Fence

  • Fence design is limited only by your imagination. The best way to start is to look at other fences in your area, and to look through books and home magazines.
  • Contact your Council to find out if there are any restrictions on fence construction.
  • Check your setbacks to see if you're allowed to build right up to the property line.
  • Check for buried cables or pipes. Most utilities will come and mark these with spray paint if you request it.
