How a Gate Can Increase Your Home’s Security

Break-ins are one of the most common household crimes in Australia, with hundreds of thousands of homes being broken into each year, and almost as many being subject to attempted break-ins.

Building secure boundary fences and gates, or even just repairing your existing fencing and gates, can act as a big deterrent. Research has shown that burglars are less likely to attempt a break-in if a property seems secure or there are obstacles they’ll need to overcome. For instance, if a burglar needs to climb a fence, or try to pick a lock on a gate or is faced with an automated gate, they’ll be more likely to leave your home undisturbed.


So, what fencing and gate options can help increase your home’s security while also maintaining your home’s aesthetic?


New Gates and Fences


Every house should have a fence and secure gate, even if you live in a safe or rural community. They not only help to create clear, easily identifiable borders, they create privacy and extra home security.


However, when installing a new gate or fence, there are a few things you should consider. For example, your fence shouldn’t be so high that it blocks out the sun and makes it feel like a prison, but it also shouldn’t be so low that people can easily jump over it. Shorter picket fences are fine for a front yard, but when it comes to your backyard, something higher that offers extra privacy and security will prove valuable in terms of your own comfort, but also for re-sell value and blocking out street noise and etc.


The same goes with your gates. If you have a gate separating your front yard or driveway from your backyard, you want to ensure not just anyone can walk through it. In this regard, a higher, lockable gate will come in handy.


For a clearer idea of fencing and gate regulations in your local area, and any guidelines regarding fencing heights, talk to the team at Perth Handyman Services.


Fence and Gate Repairs


A dilapidated fence or broken gate will provide about as much security as no fence at all. If your fence and gate are falling apart, the wood is rotting, the metal rusting, the panels are coming loose or the locks on your gate are no longer functional, it could be time to undertake some repairs.


At Perth Handyman Services, we offer fencing and gate repair services. Whether you have a wooden gate that needs to be repaired, a Colorbond fence that’s seen better days or you want a new metal gate or wrought iron fence installed, we can help.

We’re also qualified welders who can repair an existing fence or gate saving on money and not changing the look of your fence or gate.  As many fences and gates fade over time if you need to replace fencing panels or a gate, the colour will not match the existing fence or gate and can look out of place.  Where possible we will save the existing fence portion or gate so that there is no change in colour.  However, many old colours don’t exist anymore, making it impossible to match existing colours. But don’t stress, we can also assist with re-painting any repaired fences and gates.


Finding time to undertake property repairs can be tricky, especially when you work full time and have other family responsibilities to juggle. This is where we come in. We can do the work for you, leaving you the time you need to enjoy your weekends.

Do You Need Assistance with Your Property Maintenance in the Lead Up to Christmas?

Christmas is right around the corner, which means your social calendar is about to get fuller than it’s been all year. But, before you open your doors and start having people over for Christmas lunch, weekend drinks or an afternoon of lounging by the pool, it could be worth tidying your property up a bit first.

Here, we look at how you can make your home look brand new just in time for the festive season.


Get Your House and Garden Looking It’s Best This Christmas!


Whether your house is a new build, a few years old, or has been around since the turn of the century, a little bit of home maintenance can help improve the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your property.


For instance, if you have a lot of people coming and going and your front gate has a broken lock and rusted mechanism, the first thing anyone visiting you will think is, “oh, their gate is broken”.


Likewise, as the weather is warming up and your backyard pool is going to be in constant use, it’s more important than ever to make sure it meets regulations and isn’t bringing the overall appearance of your outdoor area down. Perth Handyman is also qualified in welding, so can assist with repairing gates and fences on-site, saving on replacement costs. Self-closing hinges can be repaired or replaced quickly, also saving on costs and keeping any pool fencing inspectors at bay.


A fresh coat of paint in the kitchen, a new outdoor dining area and a perfectly manicured lawn and front garden are other ways you can make your home more appealing to both you and your guests. Plus, most of these tasks can be completed in a short amount of time, without adding a burden to your already hectic schedule.
