Amazing why these guys are still in business!
Quick to give a competitive quote but short on actual outcome and quality of work to say poor is being generous. It's been a year since a cap and lap treated pine fence has been installed and in that time the laps have shrunk so gaps now appear, caps have warped and splits opened up. To save money on their part only the absolute minimum overlap was used on their part to just cover paling to paling resulting in gaps all over the place when the timber dried out. The contractor used was only one month on the job and previously a concretor, no expe...rience to speak of with fencing and it showed. Management when complained to were not focused on getting best customer outcomes merely doing band aid repairs and promises. Their 40 year guarantee I would not count on. Luckily we withheld payment otherwise nothing I suspect would've been done. Deal with people that actually do the work not subbie out to contractors with little experience. It may cost you a bit more but you won't have years of looking at dodgy work!
Not so amazing. Refuses to rectify mistakes
The boss came out and was rude and argumentative and told me he wanted nothing to do with the job anymore. Apologized at the end but damage was done. Sub contractor came to rectify the fence but fence still sub-standard. I think I will get somebody else to rectify now and take that out of what I owe them I have no problem paying good money for a good job. I didn't get a good job and would never use them again. Run.... run away from these people.

4 days to complete a fence that should have gone up in 2 days, fence palings missing nails, bowing cross beams, not vertical and that months to complete repairs that shouldn't have been needed if the work was done right from the beginning. Will not use again and wish I had gone somewhere else to start with, you should just compare the new fence on the other sides, the quality is 100 or more times better. I wouldn't recommend anyone going with them.
I was so impressed with Amazing Fencing right from the start. Earl was helpful and professional in his approach as he visited my home to assess my needs and the office staff are also great. Gary installed my fence today and he was so good at what he does. It is hard sometimes to find a good tradesman so I appreciate a job well done.

Amazing that they're still in business - so dodgey!
Only use this company if you would love to spend your money on a fence that will literally rot away and fall down in a number of years. The timber posts are even rotting up at the top end of the posts where they have never come in to contact with anything but air!!! They claim to offer a 40 year warranty before they get your money but once they have it, the warranty you have in writing means nothing!! Incompetent, deceitful and disgraceful people!! We had no choice but to pay our neighbour half for the fence they arranged with this company. Another fence we arranged elsewhere at the same time is still standing, solid as a rock.
This is our second fence job with them. Amazing fence just subcontracts the work out and collects a margin. The quality of the job will be highly dependent on the person who turns up, if they even do turn up at all. Our job was postponed twice and when the subbies that finally turned up was rude, obnoxious and unhappy about having to come off a bigger job they were working on to replace my fence. The quality of the job was poor and not performed to what was agreed. When we started asking the subbies questions on what we thought was our agreed expectations with Amazing, we were told off rudely that they had 40 years of experience and we were wasting their time.
The first time I used Amazing Fencing I got a very good result, very efficiently produced and that's why I used them again. The second time, a disappointing outcome and a difficult person to deal with. Clearly it depends on the contractor you get and I there isn't sufficient quality control over that. I wouldn't take the risk again.

Great fence but very poorly executed that will leave you with hours of work to clean-up and repair t
- Our fence was replaced
- We were told that there would be 'a bit of cement broken'
- We ended up with 2m3 of broken cement spread out over 18m (along the fence replaced) and massive holes in the cement - not even on a straight line. Without any warning. We had to clean-up ourselves, hire a skip and use 13 bags of 20kg cement to fill-up the holes
- For all the work that was required after their intervention we received a 50$ discount

Great Fence,Great Service
Amazing Fencing Dandenong have just completed a fence for us. From Tony who quoted to Paul and Pete who constructed the fence and the team who removed the rubbish we received nothing but professional, friendly and considerate service and most of all a GREAT job. Thank you to all at Amazing Fencing.
I received a quote from this company and a short time later I had a call from one of their contractors that the came to do the job. He was never there when it was supposed to happen and always had excuses. It took 4 months to get the side fence done and as the front gates had been removed to do this my property was left unsecured. Long story short he never came back to finish the job or take away the demolished old fence and had been paid a deposit for the front fence and it turns out he doesn't even work for them anymore.
How does someone ge...
Amazing Fencing is the absolute worst.
Amazing Fencing = THE WORST. If you want your job to start 2/3 weeks late, deal with complaining contractors who do NOT do a proper job or take care of the materials - then this is the company for you. Very unorganised, colourbond panels scratched, fencing was too high and blamed it on the level of our ground I could go one but I don't want to waste any more of my time. Overall very poor experience - would not recommend anyone use this company to do works on their property. This company is the absolute worst.
Worst company ever.
Nails missed rail. Half the fence 20cm off the ground, dog can get under. Top of fence did not get cut with string line. Rang company guy came back re cut top. Did not fix bottom. Put 20 or more nails in each picket and still missed the rail causing pickets to split. Worst fence in brisbane and done by a company that calls themselves amazing. Ha. What a joke of a company. Please do not use them. They are cheap for a reason.
I recently had a second lap and cap fencing job done by Amazing Fencing. I got them back second time because happy with first job. This time around there were a few communication problems at the start but in fairness they did work hard to fix those and the end result was a well built and great looking new fence. I was particularly impressed with the follow up service and attention of the guy that came to measure and quote. Thanks Amazing Fencing.
Do not use this company. They also trade under Sydney Timber Fencing http://www.sydney-timber-fencing.com.au/. I spent weeks trying to organise a quote with different stories given as to why they weren't coming. Eventually the guy turned up to quote in the evening and needed a torch to see what he was doing. He then sent through an incorrect quote (quoting for demolishing a fence, not a wall). It took me a week of unreturned emails and calls to finally speak to someone who said that they don't demolish walls. They wasted weeks of my life that I will never get back.
Lots of problems with our fence and the company is doing everything to avoid making repairs.
Ours is a lap and cap fence. There are some gaps between the boards so its not completely lap at all. The contract called for galvanised nails to be used throughout and the nails used were not galvanised and some of the nails were too long and protruded past the fence. Some have been cut off and others are still protruding and are potentially dangerous. These nails will eventually rust and the fence will start to fall apart. There are many instances where there are splits in the timber where they have nailed too close to the edge of the t...imber and in several places where they were suppose to use 2 nails at each location, only 1 nail was used with the timber starting to twist. Several of the boards are already twisting and bowing as the timber is young and has not been seasoned and there are insufficient nails particularly at the bottom of the fence. The work was done in October and we have given the company to date 20 Feb 2018, every opportunity to rectify the issues and although they have made many promises to do so, nothing has happened. We intend taking this issue to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) and if there is any movement on this issue beforehand I will repost to this site. February 24th 2018 Update: Follow up review from review from Feb 22 2018 - showing that reviews are a good first step to rectify I posted this and also a further review on their website. It did the trick in having my fence repaired and very quickly too. I therefore urge others who have not had their complaints addressed to do the same. A contract fencer spent 1.5 days making good all the problems. It's not brilliant but it is acceptable and hopefully will give us many years service. Unfortunately it seems that the fencing business is akin to someone at the top of the pile collecting all the monies and paying poorly qualified tradesmen a pitance whereby the workimen are doing jobs for numerous companies with no-one wanting to take any responsibility. If you have the time allow weeks to get in sufficient quotes and accept with caution!!!
