WHAT IS THE BEST FENCING MATERIAL TO REDUCE NOISE?

Sound Absorbant FencingWhat is the best fencing material to reduce noise?

Noise reduction fencing stylesTodays most common cause of neighbourhood disputes stem from inappropriate sound, (noise). The most efficient material to reduce sound levels will depend upon the frequency of the sounds.

A common misunderstanding is that the more solid the fence the more sound it will stop. Soundwaves vary in length, the higher the note the shorter the wavelength of that note, or, the lower the note, the longer the wavelength.

To best way to reduce sound levels is by using a mixture of materials in the design allowing for the absorbtion and reflection of all of the soundwaves. A solid brick fence or similar will reflect high frequency sounds but transmits low frequency sounds.

Sound absorbing fence materialsA fence made of natural planting combined with a brick, stone or block fence will absorb and reflect the broadest range of frequencies.

Naturally the higher the fence the better. A lot of sounds pass over the top of the fence. For this reason the higher the fence the better the sound resistance.

Brick walls reflect many frequencies, so if your home and fencing is contructed from brick you may have a lot of relective noise (echo) contained within the walls. The best way to combat this problem is with the planting of dense shrubs within the fencing, between your home and the fence.

It's a fence, not a kitchen!The construction of fencing and gates involves the use of water resistant timbers. Most fencing and gates are constructed from Hardwood or Treated Wood.

Fencing is designed to be quick and easy to install and the materials are designed to be inexpensive. This is because most fences are quite large and need to be erected quickly.

For these reasons fencing woods are often prone to expansion and contraction due to exposure to the elements. The timbers used are sufficiently treated or primed to last a long time outdoors, however it does come at a cost!

It's a fence, not a kitchen!Wood used for fencing is often sawn (rough grade) and is farmed with a short turnaround of about 7 years. The finish is not as smooth as seasoned lumber and therefore cannot be finished to the same degree as you would expect in your kitchen!

It is not advisable to sand treated timbers as this just releases a fine sawdust into the air where it can be inhaled.
For those who like to D.I.Y. we have assembled construction guides for all styles of fencing gates and retaining walls.

My fence is not located on the boundary, who owns it?Does my fence have to be exactly on my boundary?

In simple, the answer is NO. Sometimes it is not possible to place a fence on the exact boundary. Such an example would be where a cliff face separates the two properties. You need to provide a fence at the top of the cliff regardless of whether that is on the boundary or not. View www.alldayfencing.com.au/adfcouncil.php for more information.

If the fence is not on the boundary, who owns it?

As discussed above a fence does not have to be located exactly on the boundary, however the fence is still a boundary fence and is accepted by both neighbours as the boundary of their properties. Therefore if the fence required replacement both neighbours still equally share the cost of replacing a similar fence.

Should I have a survey done for my new fence?

For the reason above it is not required that the fenceline be surveyed if both neighbours are in agreement as to the location. If your home has just been built and no fences currently exist a survey is recommended and may be part of the development/building application. If you are constructing a concrete, stone or brick fence this must be approved by your local county office prior to construction.

I want to build a brick fence and my neighbour wants a less expensive timber fence. What can I do and who should pay?

If you prefer a more expensive fencing, unless your neighbour is in agreement, they are only liable for half the cost of replacing a similar fence. You would have to pay the difference.

How should I approach my fencing repairs when my neighbour is a apartment block / commercial building?

For dealings with property managers or private companies it is crucial that they are informed prior during and after the course of the job. The most appropriate method is to send written correspondance prior to proceeding with any works. Your letter should state your intentions and their responsibilities regarding access and payment. Download our collection of ‘Letters To Serve Your Neighbours RE: FENCING’. Cut and paste the required letters and send as needed. Letters to serve your neighbours includes legal advice for the correct follow up proceedure to ensure you are reimbursed the costs you are owed and avoid costly neighbour disputes.

HOW HIGH CAN I BUILD MY BOUNDARY FENCE?How high can I build my boundary fencing?

How High Can I Build My Boundary Fence?

If applying for a new fence approval from your local authority, most fence laws and requirements are documented in a local county development plan. In most states boundary fencing can be built up to 6′ (1.8m) high.

 This measurement is taken from the ground level on the higher side of the fence and therefore, does not include retaining walls. There are some exceptions:

One exception to this rule is where you may live in a development where a developer has placed a covent over the height or style of fencing in order to keep a uniform look to the development, or to protect individual owners views or privacy.

Another exemption can occur where your property boundary is shared with a national park or declared fire hazard where the local council may place a restriction on the fence material used in the construction and/or the height of the fence.

 Can I build my fence higher then 6′ (1.8m)?

Privacy is a common cause of disputes between neighbours, but privacy is a 2 way thing! If your neighbour can see you in your kitchen from their lounge room, then you can see them in their lounge from your kitchen!

 So What Should I Do? 

The first thing is to speak with your neighbour. If you are both in agreement you can provide a privacy screen to the top of the fence, or even increase the fence height. If no other neighbours are effected then you can simply proceed.

What If My Neighbor Objects? 

If you cannot gain the approval of your neighbor you can lodge a development application for small projects or speak with your local council representative. A development application will allow the council to assess the fence height request and may or may not approve it depending on individual circumstances.

 An easier way is to plant a natural hedge or consider a privacy screen 3′ (900mm) on your side of the fence line.
