The grass is greener inside the fence for these new Dunedin homeowners.

Whether built to create security, block out the neighbours, or keep the kids (and pets) safe from harm, every wooden fence offers a valuable purpose. 

But with their functionality, they also enhance the aesthetic of backyards. This is why homeowners have long used wooden fences; they’re a truly effective and affordable way to add value to any home. 

The Initial Consultation

Struggling to find a contractor who could deliver during the Christmas period, homeowners Kamil and Lucy reached out to their local Renovation Specialist, Sarah Arnel.

Backed by her network of construction professionals, Sarah was able to arrange for a tradesperson to measure the property and provide a quote within the same day. 

A Classic Wooden Fence

The classic wooden fence was designed to provide a stylish and timeless backdrop to outdoor areas. Naturally blending with nature, it’s an excellent option for enhancing aesthetic while adding value to your home. 

However, while liked for their simplicity, wooden fences are fully customisable, allowing you to tailor them to your needs, whether for form or functionality. Also very durable, this type of fencing has lower chances of needing repair and greater overall affordability.

As Kamil and Lucy were hoping for more shelter and greater security for their family and dog, they decided to install timber fencing around their property, 1.2m in height. With this build, two aluminium gates were also installed with fitted pool latches for easy accessibility. 

The Renovation Process

The Refresh experience was developed to support homeowners in achieving beautiful renovations. From design to build, everything is smooth-sailing and stress-free. Supported by this process, Sarah and her renovation team worked carefully to bring the homeowners’ vision to life. 

With Refresh Renovations, you really can expect excellence. It’s in our customer service, building materials, and quality of finish. We understand what’s involved in the best home renovations - and that wonderful experience is exactly what we offer.

Cost & Timeline

Altogether, the timber fencing, aluminium gates, and added fittings came in at $13,130.

Working diligently with her renovation team, Sarah ensured the renovation was completed to a high standard and within the expected timeline.

Improving the Home’s Street Appeal 

Homeowners are always looking for ways to add value to their property, and a wooden fence is one of the most beneficial ways to do so. Providing optimal privacy and style, building a fence allows you to enhance your property’s form and functionality. 

Cedar or redwood, stained or painted; there are endless options for creating an aesthetically pleasing boundary that flows perfectly with your home. Fully customisable by height, colour, and material, a fence can be constructed to suit any desires.

The Outcome 

By the hands of professionals and Sarah’s careful project management, 1.2m timber fencing was safely installed around the property’s perimeter. Complete with two aluminium gates fitted with pool latches for easy accessibility, the renovation has completely increased the property’s outdoor functionality. 

But, improvements don’t end at the fence - this renovation was merely the start. Kamil and Lucy will also be undertaking further renovation work towards the end of 2021.
