If your property is surrounded by a wooden fence, chances are that rabbits and rodents like mice and squirrels have had a grand time chewing on it. Worse, perhaps, they may have made their way to your home or garage and caused damage, thanks to the holes they’ve created in your fences.

2. Costs

Having a wooden fence may be nice, but a significant amount of effort is needed to maintain it. Painting alone has to be done often so the fence can withstand the elements. In this case, it’s the frequency that makes things costly. If you are the type who wants to put an artsy flair into your fence, you could end up shelling out a hefty amount to have each piece of would carved according to you desired shape and design.

While it’s a good to put up a concrete or brick wall, it can cost you a fortune. Others would look at a rendered brick and steel fence, but those options can cost much more at $750-$1000 per metre.

3. Natural disasters

Australia is not as disaster-prone as some other countries, but this doesn’t mean you should compromise on preparations, as disasters can strike anytime and anywhere. With the threat of cyclones and wildfires most prevalent, wooden fences are less likely to withstand the brunt of nature’s fury.

Though not frequent, Australia has its fair share of earthquakes, with over 60 recorded since 1855. If you built a concrete or brick fence around your home or property, it’s possible that it will crumble should a tremor occur in your area.

Reasons why you need chainwire fencing

Given the above factors, you may want to consider putting a chain wire fence around your property. Here are some of the advantages.


Chainwire fences are made of woven interlocking steel wires, forming diamond patterns. The wires are then attached to steel posts standing on the ground. Chainwire fences can measure up to 12 feet high. These are commonly used to enclose homes, playgrounds, and highly-secure facilities such as prisons and military bases among others since they are hard to climb. Additional barb wires can also be placed on top of a chain wire fence for additional security.


Chainwire fences can withstand severe weather and other forces of nature. In fact, they are known as ‘hurricane fences’, as the strong winds go through the diamond holes created by the interlocked mesh wires.

As mentioned, wooden fences require periodic coating to prevent or delay rotting. Meanwhile, chainwire fences require much less or even no re-coating at all. Since chainwire fences are made of steel, it is impossible for termites or rodents to destroy them.


Regular maintenance and re-coating for wooden fences automatically mean costs. This is less likely if you put up a chain wire fence.

As mentioned above, you may need deep pockets to put up brick, concrete, and steel fences. On the other hand, 20-metre bundles of chainwire fences cost about $100-$200. Periodic coating may also be needed for these types of fences for aesthetic purposes.
