Why should I install fences and gates?

There are a number of benefits to adding fences and gates to your property which include:

  • Adding privacy – This is one of the most important aspects to consider when buying a property. A well installed and smart fence will help guarantee your privacy at all times in your home. This also helps to protect you when you are outside the home such as sunbathing in the garden. It’s also helpful to keep your pets safe and help prevent them from unnecessarily barking at neighbours.
  • Adding security – Security is a huge reason that people invest in fences and gates which help to deter burglars and prevent intruders. It is also helpful to protect you from wild animals entering your property as well as keeping your children and pets safe.
  • Adding a perimeter – Land is such a valuable resource that is important to mark out your property to prevent people from encroaching it. A fence helps mark out where your land starts and ends and helps you avoid disputes with your neighbours.
  • Safety reasons – Fencing is a critical investment if you have children or pets who like to play in the garden and there is a road close to your home. A fence can give you peace of mind that your dog will not attack passers-by if it has aggressive tendencies.
  • Smarten your property – Fences and gates can also add instant appeal to your house thereby increasing the value of your home. It’s important to choose a design which matches the aesthetics of your neighbourhood.

What are the different types of fences available?

Choosing a fence type can be difficult with each type offering different benefits.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local fence and gate installers listed will help you select the best one to suit your needs.

  • Solid fence panels – These are the gold standard in offering total privacy. They are manufactured without gaps in the slats to provide a solid timber screen. Featherboard, also known as Closeboard or Feather Edge fencing, can be installed up to a height of 1.83m complete with a gravel board of up to 150mm. This offers complete protection from intruders.
  • Decorative or Semi-Solid panels – Decorative panels can create a welcoming and stylish welcoming entrance to your home. They are made of horizontal slats of timber with small gaps between each slat supported by a strong supporting frame. Venetian, Louvre and Metro fence panels are types of semi-solid panels where the slats allow light through and allow air to pass through them.
  • Trellis fencing – If you love gardening, trellis fencing is a good option as it allows plants to grow round the top of the fence and allows sunlight through the top of the panels. Trellis panels are available in square, diamond or tartan styles and offer greater visibility through the panels.
  • Picket fencing – Picket fencing is a traditional style of fence made of wooden picket pales attached to a rail. These smaller fences are normally installed in front gardens to improve the appearance and security of a property.

What are the different types of gates available?

Gates are great for offering safety and security to the entrance to your home.

Gates are available in a variety of different materials which include stainless steel, aluminium, PVC, aluminium alloy and wrought iron gates. You can choose from two important variants, a manual gate or automatic gate which is possible to be opened by pressing a button.

  • Sliding gate – These gates come with a sliding mechanism and open sideways. They are useful with properties with limited space and can be either manually or automatically opened.
  • Swing gate – These are great gates for adding aesthetic appeal to your home and are available in manual or automatic options.
  • Retractable gate – When you are low on space, a retractable security gate is a good choice as the panels fold up easily.
  • Vertical pivot gate – These are also useful for properties which are low on space and are impressive with their range of movement and style.

What should I look for in a fence and gate professional?

Before you choose a fencing installation professional, you could take a look for qualifications and memberships such as The Fencing Industry Skills Scheme/Construction Skills Certification Scheme (FISS/CSCS) card and the Level 2 Diploma in Fencing (NVQ).

Before you choose a gate installation professional, you could take a look for qualifications such as the NVQ in Specialist Installation Occupations - Door, Gate and Shutter Systems (Installation), BFT approval and Gate Safe training.

Before choosing a professional, you may also want to ask for examples of past work, which could include images of different types of fences and gates that they have installed in the past. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, and Bark can show you fence and gate installation reviews from past customers too, as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas of the types of fences and gates you are looking for on your property.

Should I choose wooden or metal gates?

Metal gates are aesthetically more appealing but offer less privacy than wooden gates.
Wooden gates offer higher levels of privacy but need regular maintenance. Wood gates have to be regularly treated or stained. Aluminium gates need minimum maintenance and can either be painted or powder coated.
