Something we need to consider here is, Australia is a steel rich nation and a somewhat timber poor one!
Genuine Australian rolled steel COLORBOND® is hard to beat for its long-lasting durability and overall stability which includes withstanding great extremes of heat and wind! It also comes with a TEN-YEAR manufacturer's warranty! We will always recommend the Australian made product over imported feed materials as quite simply it’s a superior product!
Some people think that a COLORBOND® fence may be too stark or industrial looking but nothing could be further from the truth if you look closely at the vast array of colours, profiles and configurations available you might just change your mind regarding using this strong stable alternative to timber fencing!
You can also plant enhancing vegetation in front of the fence to assist with it melding in seamlessly with your property.
In today's market the price gap between timber and colorbond is not as great as it once was, question is how long do you want your fence to look great and straight for?
Here are some advice points on this type of fences that we offer to all our clients.
We use oversized posts (300mm longer than usual minimum size) so as to get the posts into the ground deeper for added stability of your fence ongoing.
In all cases we will recommend and be using concrete only due to its superior strength instead of cement soil amalgam (cement mixed with soil), concrete is particularly superior to retaining a COLORBOND® fences ongoing stability.
For your posts, rails, panels and lattice (if applicable) we will recommend the use of genuine COLORBOND® product of your choosing, all fixings will be COLORBOND® compliant. Plinths if required will need to be discussed with your local V.I.P. Fencing operator.
“Do it once or do it twice? Perhaps think of quality and not just the price!"

Hi Warren Thank you for your email I would like to express my thanks to you and Sid for he's prompt reply. Sid came to my home yesterday to take measurements and it was a pleasure to have him at my home. He was very knowledgeable and polite. He certainly took the time to get required information and measurements. I look forward to receiving he's quote in the next few days.

From the start communication was great. Harley took the time to meet with me and explain different fencing options and provided a quote quickly. Once a build date was set he continued to stay in contact to let me know he was still good to go on the proposed date. I couldn’t be happier with the end result. Harley’s workmanship is exceptional! I would highly recommend him and would definitely use his services again.

"When our old fence had to be demolished because it was falling over and had holes in it my neighbour refused to pay half. The stress involved was just incredible and it went on for about two years until I finally decided to pay for the fence myself. Although I had used another cheaper fencing company to replace our back fence I decided to use VIP Home Services for the side fence instead. Alastar and Matt did a fantastic job on our side fence and the difference is just unbelievable. The VIP fence is not the cheapest fence but it is clearly better quality and it has completely changed the way our backyard looks and feels. We now have privacy and a totally different feel to our backyard and driveway. I really appreciate VIP Home Services attention to detail and I can honestly say that this is the best thing that has happened to me in the last two years. I have attached before and after photographs to show just what a difference this fence has made."

Terry Smith provided a thorough service. He was knowledgeable in his field. I would recommend him to anyone that need their fence installed or repaired.
- Thuy (Fencing Services Blackburn)
"My neighbour & I chose Warren Smith to demolish a long wooden fence between my property & my neighbours', and erect a new timber fence in it's place. We chose Warren because his quote was very reasonable (we had 6 quotes in all), and because I knew Warren's workmanship was thorough & of a high standard from a job he & Cathy had done for me previously. The demolition of the old fence was complicated by the fact that it was completely covered by thick ivy growing from various spots along the fence. The amount of ivy on the fence was so heavy, it was pushing the old fence over. Warren (& 2 helpers) dug out & poisoned the roots of as much ivy a

Clint did our timber paling fence recently and we're very happy with it! He came by and discussed options, gave us his recommendations and was clear and communicative throughout the process. We'd confidently recommended Clint to anyone who is looking for a reliable, competent fencer!
