The entry we asked for the same height columns but the rendered block work only 1.5 metres high then horizontal hardwood timber (termite proof) 200mm x 50mm or 8 x 2's as they call them here, 1 set of gates matching, small capitols on the top of the posts only on the entry side. A fairly simple fence and a pretty straight forward project. We were going to paint timber not builder.

The quote came in at PHP 1.2M and was only 2 metres high, when I pointed this out to the builder he said it was too expensive so he dropped the height, go figure?
Regardless all my research over the years lead me to believe that a good solid high fence should max out at no more than PHP 6,000 per lineal metre, so this job should be around 550,000 pesos.

Experience and input greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Steve.
Wish there was strong, galvanized chain link available...basically need to let the dogs roam...much better protection imo for security...off point I know but always wondered why it is not (chain link). In addition, I saw that you will be using termite proof wood...is it bought that way to do you treat it on site?

We had ours built part solid block and part chain link. He used 4" square chain link in the fence part, asked him why he didn't use 3" as requested, he said the 3" is no longer available. The older 3" I have seen around on other boundary fences is larger diameter wire so would be much stronger than the 4" which has much thinner wire. Don't know what is available now as we had this built in early 2015.

Hi Reb, and Fred, found this link (pardon the pun) for chain link fencing:

https://www.olx.ph/item/cyclone-wire...l?h=fc62001048

The timber we used was what they call eco wood and is about 2" x 2" and treaded i presume at the mill. I was dubious as it looks like pine to me so I left a few pieces laying next to one of our painful termite mounds for a couple of weeks and they never went near it. perhaps it's a similar timber to what we use in Oz, "Cyprus pine" that is not treated and termites won't go near it.

Back to the chain wire, I could never understand why 3 and 4 inch chain fences are used here (never seen that in Oz). It is much more difficult to get a toe hold in 2 inch chain if one wants to climb over.

Cheers, Steve.

It's all about cost, uses less wire.

I definitely hear you Gary but for many of us it's about quality and longevity of the products and once one researches can find but pays the bucks to secure.

Cheers, Steve.

MWe recently built a pen for our pigs using the steel re-enforcing that you put in the roads. Much stronger and cheaper, doesn't need tensioning.

Hog wire is readily available and cheap here. I used it as a temporary boundary fence whilst building our beach house.
