Knowing Your Rights and Responsibilities

Dividing fence disputes are often about the building or upkeep of a structure, including the cost, who should pay and how much, and the type or height of the fence; particularly when one neighbour wants a fence for a specific purpose such as keeping in a dog.
The Queensland Government, Brisbane City Council and Ipswich City Council websites offer numerous resources to assist with navigating this at times tricky and uncomfortable conversation with your neighbour, find a solution to your problem and keep you on good terms without having to resort to legal action.
Education is key to ensuring the best legal outcome for all parties involved. Check out the following links for further information:

Not All Fences Are The Same

Fences provide homeowners and commercial properties alike with privacy, reduce noise from neighbours and the street, provide an enclosure for pets, and can give your property street appeal.

Take the time to consider the function of your fence before requesting a quote. It is important to consider shrinkage and movement in timber fence palings – which can create gaping. Timber palings can be butted or spaced, or for total privacy they should be lapped. Alternatively, if your seeking complete privacy and longevity you can opt for a Colorbond Fence, which comes in several different profiles and colours.

It is also necessary to reach an agreement with your neighbours regarding the fence type, height and costs, should the fence fall on the boundary line. Check the location of your property boundary thoroughly, to avoid potential conflict and unnecessary costs or hassle. If there is any doubt, professional advice should be acquired from a surveyor.

Not all fences are the same so if your unsure of which solution will fit your desired outcome or budget contact Rycan Retaining and Earthworks and speak with an experienced professional.

Timber Fences & Gates

Rycan Retaining and Earthworks works with its customers and local suppliers to provide a custom quality service every time. Our workmanship guarantee relies heavily on the fact that we source our timber from only the best and most trusted timber mills and merchants within South East Queensland.

Timber is a versatile and natural product able to be used to create beautiful and unique fence and gate structures. Not only can you choose the style of fence you want but you can also choose the style of palings that are used. Common paling styles include rounded, colonial, windsor, gothic, batten (plain flat-top), picket and dog-ear.


Steel & Colorbond Fences & Gates

Steel or Colorbond fencing is lightweight, strong and versatile enough for any application and to suit any style of home. Colorbond has added more colours to their collection. For fencing, you have 24 contemporary colours to choose from, including 14 standard colours and 10 newer colours. You can also paint a steel fence any colour you want, and match it to the colour scheme of your home.

Rycan Retaining and Earthworks works with its customers and local suppliers to provide a custom quality service every time. We never work with cheap imported materials and will only ever offer our customers the best locally manufactured materials. That’s why when we supply a Colorbond Fence we only ever use Australian made.
