Fencing Adelaide FAQ’s   

How long does it take to install Fencing in Adelaide?

Generally 2-5 days to install a typical Fencing project in Adelaide. Our estimator and supervisor can give you a more accurate timeframe surrounding this.


Does my neighbour have to pay half for new Fencing in Adelaide?

 If your Fencing in Adelaide is in a state of disrepair, then generally yes. They might just want a standard 1800mm high Post and Rail Zinculume Fence and if you are wanting a Good Neighbour Fence, then you might need to pay the difference. Your neighbour needs sufficient notice of 30 days in writing and by issuing a Fencing Form 2.
