How To Cover Your Colorbond Fence

Black bamboo rod fencing

Monterey, a suburb in Southern Sydney with its Californian-influenced name, lends itself well to a warm, sophisticated beachy look with our black bamboo rod screens.

Our client had a few problems with his Colorbond fence and needed our help to find a solution that addressed all of them…

AFTER: The same fence clad in our natural, sustainable black bamboo

Client’s problem

For this project, the owner had spent a lot on building a new pool and then tiling the surrounds with travertine.

As the project developed, the unattractive Colorbond fence started to become more and more of an eyesore.

They did not want to replace the fence.
They also had to raise it slightly due to the tiling.
The fence then did not meet pool fencing certification regarding height.

House of Bamboo solution

The black rod bamboo fencing was a perfect, relatively inexpensive solution whereby the customer could use the existing fence yet clad it so it complimented the beautiful surrounds and also meet pool requirements. It ticked all the boxes!

More about black bamboo

Black bamboo (which dries to a natural dark chocolate brown) is very popular here at the House of Bamboo. It is a species of flowering plant in the bamboo subfamily of the grass family Poaceae, native to Hunan Province of China, and widely cultivated elsewhere (source Wikipedia).

The colour can easily be maintained using our specially formulated Bamboo Protector, or you can leave it to fade naturally to the lovely silvery grey favoured in shows like Grand Designs.

We think you’ll agree from these images that the final look is outstanding! Natural, sustainable, contemporary and pool certifiable with beautifully clean lines and a stunning contrast with their light coloured pavers.
