Tips for Removing that Old Fence in Perth

Maybe your fencing has seen better days. Maybe you’re renovating for resale and want to improve the curb appeal of your home. It might be time to get rid of your old fence, but that may be easier said than done! As an aluminium fence provider in Perth, here are some helpful tips and hints to help you avoid some common fence removal mistakes!

Helpful Tips to Avoid Some Common Fencing Removal Mistakes

The first thing to consider is fence ownership. If the fence is also on your neighbour’s property you will need to get your neighbour’s permission to remove it. This can help you avoid a plethora of complicated legal issues in the future.

Proper fence removal depends on your fencing type. For example, if your gate and fencing are made from wood, the procedure will vary a great deal from chain link fence removal. It’s usually best to remove fencing slats or pickets first, and leave the thick fence posts for last.

Many fence posts are cemented into place and you will need to spend a lot of time and energy digging them up. Before you begin digging, check to make sure that there are no buried cables, wires or pipes in the area, or you could end up with an expensive problem! You can contact Call Before You Dig by calling 1100 (free call) or you can visit the website at http://www.1100.com.au/. The organisation will contact your utility company and the company will then contact you about any buried dangers.
