Colorbond Fences in Caboolture
Are you considering investing in Colorbond for your fence? Colorbond is a fantastic investment because of the way that it is constructed and what that means as far as your return on investment.
Colorbond is the brand name of a steel product, designed and manufactured in Australia, to withstand Aussie conditions. In the manufacturing process, the colour/paint is bonded to the steel which means that the paint wont chip or bubble, it will fade over time but much slower than other types of materials. Generally speaking, the darker the fence, the more UV it absorbs, resulting in quicker fading than light colours.
Because the material of Colorbond is steel, it is very durable. Very commonly used in the roofing industry, if it is good enough to be on your roof, it is plenty reliable enough to be your boundary fence. Also used in wall cladding, to protect buildings as well as provide a modern aesthetic.
The downside of Colorbond is that once damaged (for example a vehicle reverses into a fence and leaves a dent), the whole affected area will need to be replace, which is harder and more costly than simple replacing a couple of timber palings. Colorbond is often more expensive than timber, one thing to consider is that the maintenance between the two materials is vastly different, Colorbond boasts very low maintenance, whilst timber will require sealing, cleaning and painting every now and again.
If you live in an area where termite are a threat, consider using an alternative material than timber fencing, such as colorbond, aluminium, PVC, chain wire or something of the like. Need a retaining wall beneath your fence? We offer retaining wall construction too.
