The first fence in Western Australia (WA) was completely built in 1907 to protect farmlands from rabbits. Known as the world’s longest fence, it was 1,832 kilometres long.
Today, you install a fence not only for security but also for added aesthetic appeal. Know your options before settling for the best fencing.
Aluminium vs. Steel
Boardwalk recommends aluminium for WA gates because it is strong and can adapt to the changing seasons. Since it is 100% recyclable, change it without worrying too much about the environment. It is best as a garden or poolside barrier and is also perfect for beach home fencing due to its rust-free quality.
In fact, aluminium slat fencing will make the sides of your house look more beautiful. It is easy to upgrade or replace this kind of fencing as well.
On the other hand, steel is tough and suited for long-term security fencing. It does not rust when galvanised and powder-coated.
Aluminium fence is good as a home external design feature, while steel fencing is ideal for safety purposes. Both offer customisation options for homeowners.
When choosing which fencing material to choose, think about the costs. Fencing companies offer some options for a good price, while other materials can be expensive. Also, think about how you want the house to look or how soon you need the fencing.
Recovered or second-hand salvaged materials give you original and attractive fencing. Brick and stone is a fine fencing choice, but its construction takes a long time.
Meanwhile, treated timber has a pleasant, traditional appearance that Australians prefer. Treated timber fencing works best for gardens.
Whether for security or added home value, there is a type of fencing that is best for you. If you can’t choose, don’t hesitate to ask for expert opinion.
