Asking for a price on a new fence is like asking how long is a bit of rope. There are many variables to consider to give an accurate price without actually seeing the prospective fence site. Even the best fencers could not give an accurate quote.
Sure, many a colorbond fence contractor in Melbourne will have a regular cost per metre but that fence price will certainly go up if certain conditions exist. There are quite a few and I will cover some of them here for you to make your selection simpler.
1. Ease Of Access To Site
Can the fencer access the site easily and by this I mean the location of the old fence. There could be vines or creepers etc that cover a section of the fence. Obviously this will have to removed.
2. Immovable Objects Next To The Fenceline
There could be a structure like a small shed or a childs cubby house situated right on the fenceline. Most times this is not a problem if the fence colorbonds are on that side of the fence. The colorbond fence contractor will consult with both parties to see if it is alright to put the railing on the other side. Another option is that the fencer will simply make up a section of the fence offsite and put it up onsite.
3. Length Of Fence
If the job you are needing is only a short distance some contractors will inflate the colorbond fence price. For example, some would quote $25/metre for over 50 mtrs of fence but $38/mtr for short distances. Be aware of this.
By reading this I hope you have an understanding of why there is a fair bit involved in getting a colorbond fence price in Melbourne. You are now armed with information that will help you make an informed decision when picking the one for you.
