Building outdoor privacy for your home is an important consideration when designing outdoor landscaping and living areas. You have so many options when it comes to creating stylish backdrops for your BBQ area and garden beds. What about hiding away unsightly areas like bins, water tanks and other common garden structures like the gas mains!
Defining the landscape and creating stylish boundaries for your home can actually be easily achieved when you know what products to use. Looking through well-designed dwellings, it is always the street appeal and outdoor areas Australians are drawn to. We love a good BBQ and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, so having an aesthetically pleasing outlook adds to our enjoyment of the space.
With so many considerations for fencing and privacy, understanding the pros and cons of your available product choices will help you to make more informed decisions, hopefully allowing you to spend more time enjoying and less time maintaining.
Aluminium Fencing & Screens for Australian Conditions
Traditional fencing such as timber, unfortunately, does not stack up to the Australian conditions. With constant exposure to sun and humidity, maintaining the appearance of your fencing and privacy screens can be a maintenance nightmare. No one likes maintenance – and timber can be a constant battle with the elements. For wooden fences – tasks such as restaining, sanding, and repainting wood or replacing slats and posts all take valuable time.
Steel panels were growing in popularity a few years back. However, just like timber, steel has its limitations. Steel panels tend to suffer from rust, particularly when your home is situated close to the beach. Therefore, many homeowners are moving away from timber and steel to more “maintenance friendly” solutions.
The alternative to these traditional fencing solutions has seen the explosion of aluminium fencing and privacy screens. The variety, durability and maintenance of aluminium screens are truly superior – providing an easy choice for both building designers, builders and homeowners alike.
Appealing and Low Maintenance
Using high-quality aluminium, you can be assured that your privacy screen, fencing, and gates will look fantastic for many years to come. It doesn’t get better than aluminium for low maintenance, durability in Australia’s harsh climate, and a large variety of design choices to suit every need.
