Timber Fencing:

A timeless choice, a timber fence has long been a favourite fencing option for Australian property owners. We often find that timber fencing is most popular with our client’s who have more traditional styled properties and are looking to further enhance this look. Although very popular with traditional homes, timber is very minimalistic, so it can also blend seamlessly with basically any property—this is what makes is so popular.

Timber is one of the most affordable options on the market. Available in many different styles and sizes, timber fencing is easily customisable, making it a simple solution when it comes to creating both security and privacy.

Steel Fencing:

Another top fencing choice is a steel fence. Steel is very popular because of its extreme durability. Capable of withstanding even the harshest of weather conditions, steel fencing is the perfect addition to any Australian home. A steel fence will improve security and privacy while also adding value to your property.

Here at Amazing Fencing, we only work with the most trusted names in the steel fencing game including Colorbond and PermaSteel. Both these steel fencing products are available in a selection of colour choices, so you’ll be able to find a style to complement the exterior of your home perfectly.
