• To Old Mate Fencing



"Old Mate Fencing" was established in 1998. After moving to Sydney from country N.S.W in 1996 the owner operator Damian Makim spent two years on the Northern Beaches learning the art of brushwood fencing. Disillusioned with brush fencing and the effort it took to build a fence that in most cases would last only eight years before needing to be repaired he started a timber fencing business and called it "Old Mate Fencing" a phrase commonly used when referring to someone.

"Old Mate Fencing" is a small but successful business and relies extensively on word of mouth referral. The installers used in the business have been with the company for several years and although one or two may look like the wild man from Borneo this does not reflect in their workmanship and their ability to do quality work.

The company has built a strong relationship over the past ten years with Hudson Building Supplies at Brookvale. This timber merchant would with out doubt be the best supplier of fencing grade timber on the Northern Beaches supplying quality grade treated pine and hardwood materials.

"Old Mate Fencing" endeavor to give each client the quality and service that is synonymous with the name.

If its quality work and peace of mind you are after leave it to "Old Mate"

    I highly recommend Damian and his team from Old Mate. The timber fence was done efficiently, quickly and professionally. Best of all, it is straight as an arrow. I spent a lot of time checking out timber fences put up in my neighbourhood, and this was easily the best finish.

    I agree with everything said in the previous reviews. Old mate Fencing installed a horizontal slat fence, and a vertical slat side fence, and they both look superb. The price was the best that we receive, and the communication and installation was professional. Damian's crew were a pleasure to have at my house, did a great job and cleaned up after themselves. They also handled the variations that I requested with ease, and discussed the fence with neighbours professionally and politely. I would recommend Old Mate Fencing to friends.

    Old mate fencing installed a colorbond fence for us last week. The price was honest, the installation was professional and the end product was exactly what we wanted. Damian's crew worked like a great team and vere very accommodating to our needs. The guys knew their trade well, and it shows in the quality of the installation. When they finished, everything was cleaned up. My Body Corporate and I are very happy with Old Mate and will be using them again. Thankyou Damian!

    These guys provided the cheapest quote out of all we received. They had the stuff delivered the night before, arrived at 8am, had 22m of old fence removed by 9am, and built an amazing fence in a day. Fast, looks great, would recommend.

    We got Old Mate Fencing to build a boundary fence about 10 years ago. We didn't hesitate calling them again when we needed a new side fence and gate this week. The price was great and happened really quickly. The workmanship was excellent and the guys were lovely - very accommodating. I have no hesitation in recommending Old Mate Fencing.
