How to Extend Your Colorbond Fencing

A Colorbond fence is one of the best looking fences out there. It helps to improve the appearance of your home, increase the value and give you and your family more privacy. There is also a security benefit from extending your fence as it means that intruder have a harder time trying to climb over. If the fence you currently have was installed before you moved in and you want to extend it higher, there are various ways you can go about doing it. An addition to the existing fence is a cost effective method to achieve your goals rather than replacing the entire fence. You can get a professional to do the extensions for you although you can also easily do some of the extensions yourself.

Natural Fencing Extensions

One of the ways you can extend the fence is adding a natural element to it. This makes the fence more beautiful and adds to the greenery around your home. The natural fencing you consider as an extension should give you the longevity you desire. It is also an inexpensive method of extending the fence since you can do it yourself over a period of time. If you are a gardening enthusiast, this could be an exciting venture for you to try out. For instance vines grow up fast and can make an excellent choice for a natural fence extension.

Colorbond Extensions

The sellers of Colorbond fences often have extensions as well. If you visit the store, you can go through a variety of extensions which can fit above your existing fence. You need to choose the colour and height of the fence depending on your desires.

Contact a business like Alto Industrial Agencies if you have specific questions about the further installation of Colorbond fencing.

Wooden or Plastic Lattice Extensions

Lattice forms a checker-board style when added to the top of your existing fence. It helps to achieve a stylistic goal in the sense that it changes the appearance of the existing fence. This is in addition to the added functionality of increasing protection with regards to intruders and privacy. You should paint the wooden lattice or use some other protection against the elements such as weather and termites. This helps to ensure the extension lasts longer.

Screen Extensions

You can also opt for coloured screens as the extension for your fence. These are usually plastic and help provide a translucent or opaque protection. Ensure that you choose a sturdy screen that can fit properly with your existing fence. There are various professionals you can consult on how to go about extending your fence.
