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!"

We recently had a fencing project completed by Mark and his colleague Curtis who had recently joined Mark to gain further experience in his own business. Curtis was a friendly and personable tradesman, his work was completed in an efficient and timely manner. We had the gate constructed for our new pup in the backyard, but as the result was so nice, wish it could be displayed out front for passers by! Thank you so much!
Mark was flexible and aware of my needs on a tricky job. He was most professional and can't recommend him highly enough!

Hi Ben. Just a short note to again indicate my appreciation for the replacement of two fences for my daughter and me. From the first contact with you when you provided me with quotes, I was pleased with several things; (a) your promptness in providing the quotes, (b) your professional and considered advice as to what was the best material etc. that suited our requirements and finally the professional completion and appearance of the fences that were done in a timely manner. Due to your professional work and friendly disposition, I would have no hesitation in recommending your work to anyone. Regards Neil O’Loughlin.

I am so pleased with my new fence and sliding gate. Bryan attended to the smaller detail by professionally replacing the pavers and filling a hole in the brick wall. Going that extra mile makes such a difference.

Dear Walter, Thank you for all your hard work and attentiveness to our property and garden. We have appreciated the courtesy you have demonstrated toward us; both you and your colleague, David, are gentlemen. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others and will keep you in mind for any future work. Kind Regards, Daniel and Sally B

"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."
