Warranty & Aftercare Services
Aside from the 10-year warranty offered by the manufacturer, professional COLORBOND® installers also offer warranty for the installation itself. Make sure to ask your installer what the warranty covers and how long it lasts.
Professional installers only use 100% authentic COLORBOND® fences, which you can verify by checking the COLORBOND® logo. This ensures that the fence will last for a long time.
Australia Building Code Compliant
Fence installation needs to adhere to local building codes and local council regulations. It’s crucial to notify them of your plans and familiarise yourself with the Dividing Fences Act 1991. The height of the rear and side boundary fences must not exceed 1.8 meters. When you work with a professional installer, you can ensure that the fence you are going to install will comply with local and national standards.
Custom Fence Extension Designs
Fencing professionals can recommend COLORBOND® profiles that are best suited to your objectives, property, and surroundings. Aside from that, the specialists provide placement and style recommendations based on their extensive knowledge. You’re more likely to achieve the best visual results if you hire an expert. Your fence would undoubtedly survive a long time and fulfill its job.

Can you extend the height
of a COLORBOND® fence?
The first point to clarify is what you intend to do with the fence. If the fence is for pool safety, there are very strict rules that must be followed. If you want to increase privacy or security, you should stick to the general fencing rules.
The number one secret to successfully increasing the height of your fence without encountering problems later is to reach an amicable agreement with your neighbours. If both parties agree, the council will rarely intervene, as long as your fence remains normal.
Here’s a trivia: A large percentage of small claims court claims involve disputes over dividing fences.
Local Council Fence Regulations
Most councils, including NSW, have a maximum height of 2m for dividing fences. The 2-meter rule primarily applies to solid fences with no holes, gaps, or other imperfections. However, most councils will allow a non-solid screen to extend beyond the 2-meter limit. This enables the use of lattices, slats, trellis, creepers, and other similar structures.
Increasing the height of your fence benefits both neighbours by providing additional privacy, security, shade, or whatever reason you choose. However, your neighbour is not required to pay half the cost of increasing the height of the fence. This will almost certainly be your responsibility. This relates to the previous point: try to reach an amicable agreement with your neighbour (if possible).

Fence Extension Tips for Sydney Homeowners
How can you raise a fence without ruining its appearance? The trick is to avoid extending the fence and making it identical to the bottom half. You may want a solid backyard fence for privacy, but if the fence is at or above eye level, a solid fence extension is unnecessary. Lattice is an excellent choice for a fence extension.
Lattice is another option for making a COLORBOND® fence taller. COLORBOND® fencing in Sydney is available in a variety of powder-coated colours. Although new, taller posts may be required, the lattice tops of Colorbond fence extensions are designed to be easily joined to the rest of the fence.
COLORBOND® fence height extensions may be affected by the height of the posts, but you don’t have to start from scratch if the posts aren’t tall enough. There are methods for adding extensions to existing posts. The new posts will blend in with the old if the extension is done correctly.
How do you add an extension to a COLORBOND® fence?
A fence extension can provide welcome privacy for your outdoor spaces while also increasing property security.
While the standard install height for Colorbond fencing is 1800mm, you can add privacy and security to your boundary fencing with fence extensions that raise the finished height to 2100mm for a small investment.
Remember to consult with your neighbour before beginning work on any changes to a shared boundary. It’s the right thing to do, and they may even agree to split the bill. It is also a good idea to contact your local government.
You can use the maximum height panel alone, or you can add elements to the top or bottom, such as retaining plinths or lattice screening, to increase the height of smaller panels.
To determine your material list, measure your existing fencing. Simply count how many sheets, uprights, and rails you have. That is the quantity of each item required in the extension kit. Simply count the number of uprights you have, halve it, and add one to get the number of plate brackets (for the end).
Remember that some sections (from upright to upright) will be shorter or longer than others, so measure the rails and order the appropriate lengths. Remember that you may need to cut some to fit.

COLORBOND® Steel is a particularly specific form of steel that is produced in Australia.

This allows homeowners to effectively solve privacy and security concerns while maintaining a high level of functionality, making them perfect for front barriers or side walls. With its modern and attractive appearance, this type of fence goes well with a variety of landscape and building designs.
If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can install this style of fencing yourself. However, there are numerous advantages to engaging expert fencing contractors in Sydney to install COLORBOND® Steel fencing -- and one of them is the cost.
While property owners who choose to install their own COLORBOND® Steel fence may save money at first, in the long run, a DIY installation can end up costing much more than if professional fencing contractors were hired to do the job.
