Australian homeowners are turning to 'stylish steel' for their fencing needs, because of its ability to suit all types of gardens and homes, whether they are classic Australian or modern chic.
Fences made from COLORBOND steel, developed by BlueScope Steel , come in 14 designer colours and, because of their strength, they won't warp, chip, crack or splinter over time, meaning they will look newer for longer.
Colours range from the 'touch of cream' of Domain to the rich depth of Bluestone, and include classic favourites such as bottle green Evergreen, soft eucalyptus Meadow and chocolate brown Estate.
Fencing colours can be mixed and matched to give a really personal, unique look and to ensure that fences become part of the overall look and feel of the house.
The style of fences made from COLORBOND steel play an important part in getting the right look for a garden. There is a wide range of styles available to suit every taste from the classic vertical ribbed panels to the unique subtle textured finish.
Jim Fogarty, renowned landscape architect believes that fencing is no longer seen as just something to frame a garden with. Today it is a statement about the home owner and is a definite talking point for the neighbours.
Optional extras are available to add that extra touch, such as a steel lattice panel and ball post caps, all of which are available in a range of colours.
The pre-painted coating of COLORBOND steel means that little maintenance is required with just an occasional hose down needed to keep it looking new.
Jason Cruickshank at BlueScope Steel, makers of COLORBOND steel, says that Australians are very proud of their houses and gardens, so tired old fences are very much out of fashion. He has noticed that most homeowners are making sure their fences fit in with the overall look of the property, so fencing made from COLORBOND steel is an ideal choice. He says there are so many colour and style combinations that it suits both the traditional and the contemporary.
As well as looking good, fencing made from COLORBOND steel is built to last, coming with a 10 year warranty*. Made from corrosion resistant steel, it has been tested in Australia against the harshest weather conditions and is non-combustible and termite resistant.
*Warranty subject to terms and conditions.
