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!
“Do it once or do it twice? Perhaps think of quality and not just the price!"

Hi Everyone, I would just like to Thank Alastar & Matt, for the great job, they did on replacing the back & side fence yesterday. They arrived on time, dismantled the old fence, (that they took away) & replaced it with a great looking new fence. Their workmanship & attention to detail is much appreciated. Once again, Many Thanks!

Sid has provided us with exceptional customer service and quality of work! Our boundary fence with steel posts looks fantastic, and we could not be any happier with the finished product. We have Sid booked in over the next few weeks to come and complete our second boundary fence too. We highly recommend Sid and will be passing on his details to our friends and family for their fencing/gate needs. Big thanks again Sid, and we’ll see you for our second fence soon!

Hi Terry, Just wanted to let you know that I'm very happy with my new fence. I liked the way it was erected professionally, and you cleaned up afterwards. I'd be happy to recommend your services in the future.

To Whom it may concern, We are absolutely thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Angelo (Ange). We were so lucky Ange was able to fit our job in due to a cancellation. Ange went above and beyond to ensure that both ourselves and our neighbours were happy throughout the whole process. He worked back during the week and was there on the weekend. The fence was completed on-time even though there was some lost time initially. Ange you are a credit to yourself and the VIP brand. I will certainly be recommending Ange and VIP to all my friends and family. All the best mate and Merry Christmas

Shaun Thank you for replacing my side fence. I am very happy with the work that you have done for me. I was impressed with the professionalism with which you handled the task. You followed up each stage of the project promptly, efficiently and with courtesy. I am also pleased with the workmanship which you demonstrated in constructing the new fence, your attention to providing high quality materials and the application of the best techniques in securing the posts and palings. Best wishes
Thank you, Bryan, & Karen for your wonderful service and my beautiful new gates!

Mark at VIP Home Services recently built and installed a fence/gate at our property in Mt Waverley which was a great success. Mark's quote and responses to my request were met quickly and he took care to make sure we could have our fence built at his nearest opportunity. He built the fence within a half day and took great care with his products, his building technique and the end result was perfect. He recommended a 'hidden' gate to meet our needs and it fits within the property well. An architect friend even noted now well the fence lined with the house's brickwork. Thank you Mark, we will definitely recommend you for any future work of this type and have recommended you to friends looking for similar fencing!
