However, you should always be aware of the ‘hidden’ costs that go along with Colorbond fencing such as the fencing rails, caps, posts, fasteners, lattice designs.

Colorbond fence price is related to the region you live in and they vary all over Australia. As the most expensive part of the Colorbond fencing project is the labour cost, in some parts of the country fence installers charge for their work $75 – $80, while in the other parts $65 – $70 per metre.

To get your Colorbond fencing within the budget you must have clear estimates of the size of the property and the material you want to use. The Colorbond fencing cost can easily go up if you are not aware of additional expenses that may appear at any stage of your project. Update of an old fence with a new Colorbond fence is an investment that guarantees more security of the property. Compared with timber posts and fence, a Colorbond fence panel is a better choice as it is more resilient to weather conditions.
