Who Pays for Adjoining Fences?
When choosing a driveway gate for your home, you need to pick its material and design. Additionally, practical considerations come into play. For example, would a sliding or swinging mechanism better suit the environment? And which would be better: manual or automated gates? To help you arrive at the best choices, consider the following information.
The gate design needs to match the existing fence. Though if you're installing a new fence and gate together, you'll have unlimited freedom to harmonise it to the house architecture.
Choosing the right fencing can be harder than you think. Fences come in a range of different materials, designs, and sizes. Even when you pick the material you want to use, you might have different options to choose from.
For example, if you want to put in wood fence panels, then many people choose traditional closeboard or lap panel designs. However, you can also build fencing out of woven wood.
Although there are plenty of other options open to you when you are selecting new fencing, few choices are as good as tubular fence panels. Many people in Australia opt for concrete fence posts into which they can simply drop wooden fence panels. Equally, chain-link fences are often considered to be the most cost-effective way of marking the boundaries of a property. However, tubular fencing is becoming increasingly popular because of the additional benefits it affords.
The space you have available for an automatic gate affects the product you ultimately choose. You can't fit all gates into all spaces.
If you have space restrictions or an unusual area to cordon off, then installing an automatic cable gate could be a good solution. These gates use a driver-controlled cable to allow access. When is this kind of gate a good fit?
1. You Have Height Restrictions
Some gates need a specific amount of headroom to operate.
Whether you are installing them because you want to have the ultimate accessory to your property or because you want to add a bit of extra security, automated gates are at the only way to go for style and peace of mind. The best part about automated gate systems is that no two are alike, and depending on what features you most value, you can customise them to suit your needs.
Hi, my name is Mark, welcome to my blog! As a new home owner, I’m learning a lot about the responsibilities of owning a property. Recently, my neighbour popped around and told me he wanted to put up a new fence between our gardens. My first reaction was that he should just go for it, but then he told me that I had to share the costs as we share responsibility for the fence. Before I agreed to the work (and to pay for it), I did some research and talked to a guy I know who works for a fencing contractor. I learned a lot about shared responsibility and rights with adjoining fences, so I started this blog to pass on what I’ve learned to other people who might be faced with a fencing project with a neighbour for the first time.
