We have been providing timber fencing materials to homeowners in the Brisbane area for three generations now. In that time, we have helped thousands of homeowners complete their timber fencing projects. Unfortunately, we have also heard of every mistake someone can make. Here are some crucial mistakes that you simply cannot afford to make.
Not Checking With Your Council, Neighbourhood and Other Regulatory Bodies
Before starting your timber fence, you must make sure that you are building it within the rules and regulations of your local Council, your neighbourhood and anyone else who holds regulatory power over your property.
There is nothing worse than building a beautiful timber fence, only to find out you have to tear it down because you weren’t allowed to build it there.
Not Knowing Your Property Line
Another mistake that happens all too often is building a fence that isn’t actually on your property. Much like our first example, this can force you to tear the fence back down and rebuild it due to your negligence. Always make sure you are building the fence on your property and not someone else’s.
Failure to Dial Before You Dig
You should always dial before you dig. Dial Before You Dig Queensland is part of an Australian national network that assists homeowners by letting them know whether or not they are going to run into infrastructure if they dig on their property.
The worst case scenario is digging into a powerline and being electrocuted. Always dial before you dig. Even if you “know” there is nothing underneath your property, it is better to be safe than sorry.
Failure to Plan
It is crucial to always plan your timber fencing project thoroughly before you start doing the work. The entire plan should be completed before the work starts.
