What do you need to know about security fence installation or repair?
Keep in mind your needs when it comes to security fences. A simple wooden fence can be enough to mark the boundaries of a property. For strong, permanent protection you will want a metal fence, usually steel. Pricing will depend on the materials, length and height of a fence, though there are also additional features to consider. Anti-climbing devices like razor wire can be placed along the top of your fence, or you could get added protection from electronic security or heavy duty locks. You will also need to consider ease of access for cars and pedestrians. Your best bet will be to speak with a specialist security fencing company. Following an on-site assessment, which will include pointing out potential issues such as uneven ground and slopes, they will be able to advise you based on your needs and budget and frame their quote accordingly.
Security is important; if you are taking the time to have a security fence installed, make sure it is done to a high standard. As well as collecting several quotes to compare you will also want to look over the credentials and qualifications of the tradesmen that offer them. Professionals should be able to provide examples of previous jobs and customer feedback to help with this. Your options may be registered with national organisations such as the British Security Industry Association; such groups enforce high standards on their members. The installers should provide a guarantee in the event their products fail or are incorrectly installed, but make sure you get this confirmed in writing.
The cost of repairing a security fence will depend on the situation and the extent of the fault. Obviously replacing an electronic is different to replacing broken panels, and prices can vary widely, so be sure to get multiple quotes to compare. It is best to get in contact with your installers, especially if you have a warranty with them.
