Questions to ask a palisade fencing contractor in Cape Town before signing on the dotted line

Top quality perimeter security isn’t a luxury today, it’s an absolute necessity, but before you consider where you’ll make your investment to get the best returns possible, you’ll need to know more about the fencing contractor you’re planning on working with.

A bad investment in palisade fencing is going to cost you a lot more in the long run than placing your investment in quality that will give you great returns for many years to come.

Here’s what you need to know about a fencing contractor before you sign on the dotted line:

  • Will the company be able to give you references from clients that have been satisfied with many years’ worth of quality, durable fencing?
  • Does the company manufacture their own fencing?
  • How long have they been in the industry?
  • What choices do you have with regard to whether the fencing will follow the contours of your property or be of modular design?
  • Will they be open to discussing prices with you before you ask for a quote? If they’re cagey about this, give them a miss!
  • How does the company go about doing on-site measurements and will they charge a fee for this? The right answer is that it should be a free service.
  • How quickly will the company get back to you with a quote designed to suit your budget?
  • What kind of assistance will they give you to draw up plans for the fencing?
  • Will they take your personal preferences into account when tailoring the fence to your requirements?
  • Do they have professionals who are trained to ensure the quality of workmanship is of the highest standard on installation?
  • What kind of warranties are offered?
  • Will the steel that’s used in the manufacture of the fencing be of the type of quality to withstand the coastal air and the rust it brings?

Add value to your property & increase its curb appeal by choosing palisade fencing

We all know that installing solar panels, solar water heating systems and other energy-wise systems will increase the value of your property, but, it’s seldom recognised that palisade fencing is yet another addition to your home that adds tremendous value to the property.

Crime levels in the Western Cape show no sign of decreasing, on top of which crime has taken on a far more violent aspect than we’ve ever had to deal with in our quiet little spot near the sea.

This has led to an ever increasing demand for the highest level of security for homes and business properties, and this starts with the first line of defence, the perimeter of your property.

No matter how good your CCTV coverage is, if you have high walls there will always be a blind spot to be taken advantage of. Even with the best of alarms, once the perimeter has been breached there are any manner of ways in which criminals can force homeowners to shut them down and turn away any armed response.

Palisade fencing of today is designed to deter crime, to make sure that it looks like too much work (and probably too much pain) to consider trying to climb, which sends any would-be criminal on to softer targets that don’t come with the same risks.

Buyers in the market today are looking for a home already well-secured, and palisade fencing is generally their first choice of perimeter security, especially when they know that CCTV is far more effective with palisade fencing than with a high wall.

So, where does the curb appeal come into it?

Topfence Palisade Fencing is designed and manufactured to suit the preferences of individual customers, not as a boring, standard fence that doesn’t do much for the property other than protect it.

By choosing the right style and colour of palisade fencing you can extend the work you’ve done to make the façade of your home attractive, making it an aesthetically appealing addition to your property, upping its curb appeal to where you deserve it to be.

And increasing the property value?

As discussed above, people in the market for buying a property will choose a property that already has quality palisade fencing in place as the first crime barrier rather than not.

The emphasis though is on the quality of the fencing. This is where Topfence takes first place with their unique palisade fencing system designed by a team that’s been protecting families and properties since 2008.

Every palisade fence is manufactured according to the individual requirements of a customer, using galvanised steel throughout, from nuts and bolts to the pales, which makes it the best palisade fencing for the Western Cape.

This results in palisade fencing that can’t be cut, climbed or tampered with, nor does it give any criminal a hiding spot, should he make it over the fence without impaling himself on it!

Topfence palisade fencing is made to last and to be maintenance-free, making it an all-round excellent investment in the aesthetic appeal and value of your property.

10 Reasons to trust the quality of Topfence palisade fencing

There’s no doubt about it, Topfence was born in 2008 out of a passion to protect families and properties from ever-increasing crime levels in the Western Cape, and that same passion still drives the team to maintain an unwavering commitment to superb quality in safety.

These guys put their heads together to design a unique palisade fencing system that would be tough enough to withstand many years’ worth of brutal winters and broiling summers, and still look good.

The result is that Topfence has gone from strength to strength through the years, becoming a top fencing contractor in Cape Town and surrounds, growing mainly out of recommendations from clients, which is a real feather in the cap of any long-standing company.

They also wanted to be able to offer affordable palisade fencing to locals, which is what they’ve achieved by manufacturing their own fencing using SABS approved materials sourced mainly from Cape suppliers.

It’s not always an easy balance to offer durability and quality at affordable prices, but Topfence has proven, over and over again that affordable does not mean cheap!

The decision to install palisade fencing isn’t one to be taken lightly. It should be a one-off excellent ROI, and not end up costing you more than your initial investment because the fencing you’ve chosen (the one that seemed so cheap!) needs major maintenance to keep it standing!
