Gates come in MANY styles and configurations from the humble paling or COLORBOND® clad single gate to perhaps close off the side of a house while allowing access when required to: - Elaborate automated double swing or sliding gates for your driveway!
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 gate(s) ongoing.
No matter what the gate style is if it requires posts to erect we will most likely advise to, and use either substantial timber posts, or steel posts as they don’t bend and warp like timber ones can, so your gates will remain plumb and usable ongoing, this is particularly relevant in the case of double swinging gates!
In all cases we will recommend and be using concrete due to its superior strength instead of cement soil amalgam (cement mixed with soil), concrete footings are superior to retaining the ongoing correct working function of your gates.
As a rule, we will recommend the use of a galvanised steel frame of varying dimensions depending on the type of gate required as they remain in shape ongoing for many years of hassle-free service. Some types of gates will come with their own style of frame.
Gate Cladding Materials:
There are or can be a myriad of options here so discuss this with your local V.I.P. Fencing operator who can advise you on your options.
We only use the best quality gate motors that have a proven track record of both day to day use and long term reliablity along with best warranty!
If you are choosing to automate, and you should as it is so convenient and adds value to your property then using the best (not cheap online rubbish that can't be serviced and are unreliable at best) motors and equipment will serve you far better in the long run!

Looking for a decent fencer is like looking for a good plumber, difficult. What makes Terry different to the others is he works alone and does the whole job with the same consistency and quality. He does not waste time and there is no loud music playing. He uses quality timber products and concretes in the posts. He also cleans up as he goes and leaves no mess. Some maybe cheaper, but I wanted a quality job that will last 20 or more years. I have had Terry construct 2 fences for me and would highly recommend him.

"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."

- John (Fencing Services Essendon West)
We wholeheartedly recommend Shaun Smiley and VIP Home Services for their excellent fencing work. We were delighted with the high quality result, the meticulous attention to detail, the efficiency and timeliness of the work, the professionalism, the value for money - and also (importantly) with the whole process, as Shaun and VIP were an absolute delight to deal with. Shaun completed two boundary fences on either side of our residential property. It was a complex job involving a heritage property, working with 3 separate property owners, and huge old vines completely covering the existing fences which we wanted to preserve. to be cont...
