Timber vs Metal Fencing: What to Consider

Although there is a huge range of fence styles to choose from, only two main materials are used for building them – metal and wood. When deciding which material is right for you, it is important to consider a number of factors.

  1. Wood can become warped after enduring endless expanding and contracting cycles during the winter moisture and summer heat of the North Shore suburbs. Conversely, these natural elements will not damage steel and aluminium fencing, so once a structure is up, it will not require any weather related repairs.

Fencing and Gates for Seaside Locations

Living close to the ocean in Auckland’s North Shore has many advantages – beautiful views, beach time and water sports. But it can also mean intense storms, salty air and extra wear and tear on your property.

When you are repairing or installing a fence or gate, it is imperative to think about how the environment you live in might affect it.  If you live in a beachside suburb, you have several options available to you, and below we take a look at the pros and cons of each one.

Questions to Ask When Choosing a Fencing & Gating Contractor

Choosing a fencing contractor and not sure how to compare prospective contractors? We have provided a list of questions below to guide you in making the best choice.

Do you offer a guarantee?

The last thing you want is to invest in fencing only to have the materials and/or workmanship fail, resulting in potentially expensive repairs. A fencing contractor should provide at least a two year guarantee on fabrication and installation.
