This is a good time for the contractor to introduce you to the staff that will be involved in installing the fence.”
Once the colourbond fencing and gates have been explained and are shown to you, the contractor will introduce you to the hired staff. You’ll meet the following crew members; the electrician, the installers who will install the gates and walls, the groundsmen, and the yardmasters. These guys are all on-site to help you, but there’s someone else you’ll want to meet: the colourbond fence builder.
“A colourbond fence builder is an individual or business that contracts with a manufacturer and gives a colourbond fencing job description. This description is then turned into a blueprint by the installer. Then the contractor travels to your property and looks at your property from a perspective just like the customer (from the outside). At this point, the contractor can see what you want, how big you want it, and what you don’t want. Contractors can also re-arrange wiring, shutters, trim, doors and windows, among other things while the gate is being built.

If you colourbond the sheet with the gates, you can colourbond the fence as well, saving you the extra expense of painting!
