Hi, we have around 10 6ft fence panels which most have broken bits of wood in areas. Apart from that they are pretty solid.
Would it be more economical to replace the panels or to just get the holes replaced and fixed?
What do you experts advise?

I had my fence replaced over a month ago. My builder asked for no deposit and said that it was payment upon invoice. The gate is not quite right so he said he would come back and fix it but as yet we have not seen him or an invoice (suits me)
How long does he have to present me with an invoice before the payment becomes null, or does it never become null?

My neighbour and I have decided to replace the old and very tired boundary fence with a block wall. How should the wall be best constructed (foundation followed by a few rows of engineering brick, followed by block? Also, what type of block is most suitable for this task

we live in a terraced house. We have neighbours two doors along who live in an adjoining new buid with a raised garden. They have just built a fence around one side of their garden (furthest from us) that must be atleast 2m high and looks very imposing above our garden. We want to build our own fence to extend above our existing brick wall of 5ft tall, with wood, that does not obscure bottom section of brick wall and is within our garden and our side of the wall.
How high can we build our fence?
What are the best materials for this job?
Who should we be looking to employ for the job?

I am looking for a quote for new fencing in the back garden, but the current fence has a couple of unusual sized panels (http://www.mybuilder.com/myjobs/job/364714/view), so I was wondering if the cost of the job would increase a lot due to the unusual size of a couple of fence panels?
I hope this makes sense!

I have recently had a brand new top quality fence erected on a boundary with a neighbour, bearing full cost myself. We matched up the panels to the existing fence in their garden, so it looked nice for them. We faced the gravel boards with the smooth brick effect side to them, so it matched. We matched the fence panel height to their existing fence which is a boundary with another neighbour. Over a separate issue, the neighbour has been remarkably unreasonable and discourteous. For all of our boundary fencing, this is the only section with the gravel boards facing in reverse. What I need to know is whether it is only courtesy or a legal requirement to have the gravel board facing them. I did it our of courtesy but having had none returned, I feel that I should reverse them to improve the look of my garden. Your opinion would be appreciated. Many thanks

I am responsible for the boundary fence on the left into the garden. My neighbour has on a few occasions changed the fence panels without asking me. I brought the house from a 90 yr old lady and i suspect that the boundary wasn't kept in a good condition. I do want to change the fence but what do I do with the existing ones do I give them back to them or just dispose of them when I'm ready. Also i see the back of my boundary, as I'm paying for the new fence shouldn't I see the good side.
