How To Choose Fencing For Your Home

With so many different styles of fencing available these days, in a huge variety of materials, it can be tricky trying to narrow down and then choose the best option for your home. Secure A Fence talks you through a selection of popular fencing types that you may be considering to complement your home.

Tubular Fencing


Tubular fencing is made from pre-galvanised steel and is welded with stainless steel to improve its durability. This protects the fence from rust and is especially welcome in coastal areas where metal joins can be prone to becoming rusty. You could also go for tubular aluminium fencing which is not as heavy as steel, but is also not as strong. It does however have excellent resistance to corrosion making them extremely popular in coastal areas.

Aluminium Woodgrain Slats


Aluminium woodgrain slats are a great alternative to real timber fencing but with the added advantage of being low maintenance. No need to regularly paint and varnish as it is treated with a timber grain finish. You can choose from a range of timber colours as well, to ensure it perfectly complements your home. They can be installed horizontally or vertically with any size gap between the slats and come in a variety of widths, giving you even more choice. When you choose aluminium woodgrain slats for your fence you can be assured that they will not warp, rust or rot. Most fencing companies should provide a warranty with this style of fencing – Secure A Fence provides an impressive 10 year warranty on all aluminium woodgrain slat fencing.

Colorbond Fencing


One of the most popular and recognisable fence style, Colorbond fencing is extremely durable and can be customised to include optional slats or latticing as decorative elements on your fencing. Having your panels stepped or sloped to suit the terrain of your home is easy with Colorbond fencing and they can also be erected on limestone walls.

Picket Fencing


Classic in style, picket fencing is what everyone pictures when they think of period homes – while mostly chosen for their decorative style, they are also a practical choice when you opt for prefabricated steel picket fencing. With their excellent resistance to warping and rotting, they are extremely low maintenance making them ideal for homeowners who want an elegant fence but don’t have the time to constantly repaint or revarnish. With a wide variety of decorative tops to add to the fencing, you can really personalise the fence to your own taste and match it to the style of your home.

  1. I want to make sure that Ig et the right fencing for my home. It makes sense that I would want to consider something like tubular fencing for my home! It's nice that it can be so sturdy and durable. That way, I don't need to worry about replacing it any time soon.

  2. I like that you talked about how practical picket fencing is. As you said, they can resist warping and rot which is why they are low maintenance. I hope that I can find a fence company that can install this for our home since I am on a limited budget. We just need fencing because we have a dog now, and it would keep it from running to the road.
