What is a dividing fence?
A dividing fence is generally constructed on the common boundary line of adjoining land. If the adjoining land is your neighbours property then the fence is owned equally between the two of you. Team Work Fencing will erect your fence and expect payment in full to whomever the quote was made out to. It is up to whomever is receiving the quote to discuss this with his neighbour and ensure he is happy to pay half the cost of the fence that is being erected on the shared fence line.
Do neighbouring properties have to have a dividing fence?
A dividing fence is only necessary if one or more neighbours asks for it. In this case the costs should be shared equally once both parties have come to an agreement. Some adjoining land owners however are excluded e.g. parks, plantations and crops.
How long does it take to quote, supply and install a fence?
This depends greatly on the type of fence and the size of your project. We’ll get back to your quote requests ASAP, aim to be out at your property within the week to do a quote and once given the go ahead we’ll start working on your project within a few days. These are guidelines only. As you can appreciate there are a lot of variables such as location, weather, terrain, project size, availability of materials and much, much more. The good news is that we take all that stress away.

What’s the difference between Hardiefence, Super 6 and the old asbestos fences?
Super Six and Hardiefence (made of cellulose fibres) are both products from James Hardie & Co. Asbestos on the other hand is an old fence that is toxic. Aesthetically, they are similar and can be difficult to distinguish, however, not impossible. Modern Hardifence only has 5 ridges where as older versions and asbestos have 7 ridges. If the capping is metal then this is another shore sign that it is Hardifence. Lastly Hardifence leaves a scratch mark if you scrape it, asbestos does not.
What type of fence requires the least maintenance?
Again, it depends on the purpose of the fence as to which type you would choose. Almost all metal fences that are powder-coated, or Colorbond fencing, will require very minimal maintenance because there is no metal exposed to corrode. PVC picket fencing gets rid of wood which means it’s less prone to termites and the weather. Hardifence is buried 600mm into the ground making it very sturdy and long lasting. It also keeps pets in and critters such as snakes and other wildlife out.
What fence provides the highest security?

What are the standard heights for fencing?
Standard fences are 1.8m high but we can make your fence any height. We can rake your fencing down to 1.2m as is required by most councils when nearing the front of your house towards your letter box. For greater privacy we can supply 2.1m high fencing but this is generally not recommended if you are in a windy area due to the stress on the fence.
