During the winter of 2007, due to strong winds, Sharone found himself in need of a new fence. So, he started to have a good look around at the options available to him as a customer. He didn’t want timber because of the regular maintenance required; painting, repairing broken posts or panels etc. He looked at building a brick wall instead, but this turned out to be an expensive solution and not aesthetically pleasing.
Eventually, his search took him to ColourFence, which was a completely new garden fence concept to him. Steel fencing? Steel in our garden? Initially, it didn’t sound particularly attractive but once he’d seen the product, he was bowled over by it. With a young family, the low maintenance and security aspects particularly appealed to him. Also, the fact that the fencing is environmentally friendly and it comes with a 25-year warranty was important, and it looked great! ColourFence is a strong, lightweight, practical alternative to timber fencing. The perfect replacement for your old tired wood fence.
“We are very pleased with our new fence. It was installed quickly, efficiently and with the minimum of disruption. We would certainly recommend ColourFence to other potential customers.”
– Mr & Mrs Mackenzie from Ellington
Shortly after discovering ColourFence garden fencing, Sharone was presented with an opportunity to become involved with the business as a franchisee. He decided to take the plunge and set up his own franchise, and he hasn’t looked back since. In 2008, he was awarded runner-up ColourFence Franchisee of the Year and by 2009, he had obtained the big prize – Franchisee of the Year. Since then ColourFence Cambridge is the no. 1 UK franchise (June 2018)

James - Cambridge
"Really happy. Looks great and very professional service. Would use again!"
Richard - Cambridge
"From start to finish it was a good and professional service. We replaced our old wooden fence along two borders and a gate that was on a third. The wooden fence has suffered in the winds of last year and even the new panels (3 years old) were falling apart as well as the new posts starting to show signs of weather damage. So we felt that a more robust solution would be better value for money over time as well as the minimal maintenance (if any at all). This certainly seems to fit the bill and tick all the boxes for our other issues that a wooden fence gave us. We are certainly happy with the final product (puts a wooden fence to shame)."
Michelle - Cambridge
"I would just like to say how very pleased I am with my new fence. It is worth every penny, Sharone arrived exactly on time as promised, measured up and calculated the price, which at first I thought might be too expensive, but went ahead, as I was persuaded by the guarantee, and the strength of the product versus a traditional wooden fence. and may I say I could not have had three nicer men working here they were very polite and helpful and worked hard and well together an asset to your organisation. Thank you once again"
David & Kate - Sudbury
“We had a very tatty wooden fence situated between our front garden and our neighbours’ garden replaced with very attractive ColourRails with spearheads in black. The operation went very smoothly, from the initial site visit by Sharone who explained in detail how the railings could be fitted taking account of the slight gradient and the house wall and brick wall at the roadside (which was not straight forward), to the installation. The installer arrived at the time and date planned and by himself completed all the work in about 3 hours. His work was neat and tidy and very proficient. We could not be happier with the service and final product and have no hesitation in recommending ColourFence”.
David & Sue - Impington
"Having contacted Sharone via the ColourFence website Sharone met with us, after measuring up the site we discussed the options available and cost. Sharone was very professional and never pressurised us to have anything we didn't want. On the day of the fence being erected the two guys doing the work arrived early and prepared the area and quickly erected our new fence making sure we were happy with their work at every stage. Their Standard of work was second to none and we are very happy with the finished product, I would recommend ColourFence and Sharone and his team to supply and carry out the work to anyone."
Diana - Cambridge
"Thank you. I am really pleased with the coloured fence you have supplied. The lads did an excellent job on the day and were exceptionally professional. It is easy to keep it looking good with a simple wipe. I feel safe and lately, with the high winds, it has been very firm. Money well spent in my mind."
Mr & Mrs Wells - Ely
"Thank you for the incredible service we received from you, from ordering to putting our fence up. We ordered on Tuesday 13th Nov, and on Thursday 15th Nov it was all up and finished. We are so pleased with the result. The workmen were lovely & never left any mess. Apart from our new fence you wouldn't know they had been. We would certainly recommend you to anybody who wants good service and a lovely fence. Thank you once again"
Diana - Cambridge
"They replaced scruffy fir trees, oddments of bushes and wire fence. Cream panels, green trellis and green uprights. Our garden slopes all ways and they managed to work around that so it looks uniform and makes the garden look so much larger. Easy to care for, sponge or soft brush and hosepipe/pressure washer."
Gwyneth - Potton
"I would like to put on record how pleased we are with the new fence [that] your fitter, Rob, constructed for us. The whole thing looks really lovely and enhances the front drive no end. I was very impressed with Rob's work. He extracted the old fence and posts in a very short time, even the post where we thought the neighbour's gate fixing would interfere with the process. The new fence went up efficiently and with hardly any disturbance of the neighbour's drive. One can hardly see any trace at all where the posts are set. He cleared up neatly afterwards, too, and swept up all debris. I could certainly recommend the product and your firm to anyone."
Barry - Cambridge
"Fence was installed last weekend and I am very happy with it. Was done in a morning and the old fence taken away. The people were very good and an excellent job was done. Would recommend if you need a fence that will last for years."
Dave - Cambridge
"From initial discussion to final installation, it was a pleasure dealing with Sharone and his team. The product, options and pricing were made very clear and alternative suggestions were made with no pressure. The installing team turned up on time, were polite, kept me well informed throughout, cleaned up after themselves and did a great job. I’m really pleased with the result and will be definitely giving Sharone a call when I come to replace my other fence and side gate."
Maureen - Cambridge
"I am very pleased with the ColourFence that has been erected on my property recently. My dealings with Sharone were first class from start to finish. The young gentleman installing the fence arrived on time, was extremely pleasant and worked tirelessly until it was completed."
Tracy - Peterborough
"We couldn’t be happier with our new fence and the service was outstanding from start to finish. Sharone was very helpful and the 2 Lukes who fitted the fence did a brilliant job, lovely lads, speedy, thorough and tidy! They kept me up to date on progress along the way too. I am more than happy to recommend ColourFence to anyone who mentions garden fences!"
Mr Green - Sandy
“We thoroughly recommend the ColourFence product and the services of Sharone and his team. The product is just what we were looking for and wish we had discovered it years ago. No more annual painting or waking up to fallen panels! Sharone is very professional and made the whole process very easy. The guys ( Luke & Luke) who carried out the installation were a great credit to Sharone too. Very courteous and extremely good at their job. We are very pleased with our new fence.“
Mrs Rogers - Huntingdon
"My ColourFence was erected approximately a year ago by Sharone and his team based in Lode, Cambridge. I have been completely delighted with both the fencing and the professionalism of all the people who were involved in its erection. This morning I had a small problem with the lock on the gate which provides access to the rear of my property. I contacted the company and within 2 hours Sharone had arrived to fix the problem. I would like you to know how very pleased I am with the quality of service, especially the promptness, I have received. I sincerely appreciate the responsiveness and the way the Cambridge team conduct business. I have recommended the Company to others because of my complete satisfaction. I look forward to doing business with the Cambridge Colour Fence team in the future."
Mr & Mrs Williams - Cambridge
"The ColourFence team were prompt, polite and professional. They listened well to our requirements and managed to deliver a bespoke solution to our fencing needs. We were impressed by the quality and range of equipment that the team used, and by how neatly they performed their work (including tidying up). All in all, we would highly recommend ColourFence and the team to other customers."
Mr Deeley - Newmarket
“We were very pleased with our new fence which replaced an old wooden slatted fence. We were provided with a no pressure quotation and the installation work was completed on the agreed date. The installers have been courteous and professional and Sharone has been quick to reply to questions during the process. Many thanks.”
Mr Broughton - Yaxley
"My wooden fence was almost flattened during the storms at the end of February 2017. I remembered reading a few years ago something about a metal fence storm proof fence & although I could not recall the product name I searched on-line & found it, – ColourFence.I then made contact with Sharone Freed, the local supplier, who visited & was able to give me a quote and, equally importantly, a definite date on which the job could be done. I must, perhaps rather perversely, thank the locals who could not do the job because I am delighted with what I now have – a product which is robust, pleasing to the eye, maintenance free and will doubtless outlast me. The two lads who erected the fence & removed what was left of the old fence (& a rather vicious pyracantha) were a credit to the Company – they were cheerful, efficient & left everywhere neat & tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending the product and Sharone & his team"
Mrs Newman - Moulton
"I would just like to say how very pleased I am with my new fence. It is worth every penny and may I say I could not have had three nicer men working here they were very polite and helpful and worked hard and well together an asset to your organization. Thank you once again"
Mr & Mrs Gillyon - Withersfield
"Many thanks for the fence installation, could not have wished for a more satisfactory result from start to finish. Both yourself, Brett and Steve were very helpful. The installation was carried out very professionally from removing and disposing of the old fence to clearing up on completion of the job, with no damage to the surrounding area. The final result is very impressive and we have problems with recommending you."
Mr and Mrs Handley - Sandon
"We are so delighted with our ColourFence which was plain sailing from the initial visit by Sharone to the final fixing/clear up! We have had our lengthy fence done in three sections and on every visit the fitters were polite, helpful and so professional: nothing was too much trouble and not one plant in my established borders suffered! The fencing has been much admired by friends and passers by and we felt very secure in the recent gale force winds which in the past would have filled us with trepidation. Thanks to all concerned for excellent service."
Mrs Hallam - Stretham
"We are delighted with the fence. It looks even better that I thought it would. Our friends think it is amazing. Your guys are very professional in their approach to doing the work involved. Many Company’s could take lessons from them Their professional approach to the whole job was excellent. If you wish for anyone to contact us to come and see the fence or ask us about it please feel welcome. Many thanks."
Mr & Mrs Bray-Allen - Chatteris
"It was really a “no brainer” to have ColourFence as a replacement for our existing wooden panels especially with all the technology and research involved in creating it. Apart from the looks of clean lines the appeal of zero maintenance was irresistible. Luke and Steve who carried out the work were very professional, very knowledgeable of their product, and had pride in their work and involved us in the installation. We have no hesitation in recommending ColourFence."
Mr & Mrs Price - Sawston
"Just to let you know how pleased we are with our new colour fence, everything from Sharone’s visit to measure up right through to the finished job. You contacted us at the time you said you would, you arrived to do the site survey at the time you said, you explained all of our options to us for us to decide no pressure selling or anything of that kind, a price was quoted straightaway so we knew exactly what the cost would be, when we agreed the date of installation was also agreed no hassle. Your work force Luke & Steve arrived at the time you told us they would, very polite introduced themselves looked around the site and talked to us about the installation to make sure we were happy this was carried out every step of the way while they were here “brilliant” very good workers indeed, and when the work was complete made good & cleaned up behind themselves we would not have they had been if it wasn’t for this lovely new fence they had expertly put up. We would like to thank yourselves & Luke & Steve for all the attention to detail throughout this work."
Mr & Mrs Mackenzie - Ellington
"We are very pleased with our new fence. It was installed quickly, efficiently and with the minimum of disruption. We would be certainly recommend ColourFence to other potential customers."
Miss Summerlin and Mr Wing - March
"We were very impressed with the service you provided from the quote through to the completion of the work. Luke and his colleague kept us informed throughout and answered any question we had for them. They were very polite and a credit to your company. We are extremely pleased with the fences and our neighbours have favourably commented on them. We would certainly recommend you to others."
Mr Swift - Peterborough
"The fence looks great and the professionalism of the company was second to none. The installers were so nice and worked very hard. A 70-foot fence in 2 days including removal of the old one. No more creosote needed as maintenance free, a great investment."
Ms Taylor - St Ives
"We have had so many compliments about our new fence since October; all our friends and neighbours have remarked it looks lovely. It was especially nice to wake in the night, with the wind howling, and knowing that we wouldn’t get up in the morning to find that bits of the fence were missing, like we have had with our old wooden fence over the last few years! Thank you for a job well done."
Mr & Mrs Wright - Cambridge
"Just a note to say how pleased we are with our new fence. The fitters were very professional and efficient and completed a very large job in just two days. It looks stunning. Many thanks"
Mr & Mrs Humm - Bar Hill
"We are very pleased with the whole process from obtaining the quotation to confirming the order and arranging a convenient time to pay the deposit, then the work itself and again arranging a convenient time to pay the balance due. The two fitters were punctual and polite and explained the process to my husband, such as being ‘noisy’ when they needed to drill holes. They tidied up after completing the work. The gates themselves are of excellent quality and we now feel far more secure in our home as we opted for the Yale locking system. If we stay at Bar Hill long term we would definitely consider asking ColourFence for a quote to replace our fence panels too. Many thanks again for an excellent job."
Mr Kidd - Milton
"On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to say how pleased we are with our new fence from ColourFence. It looks great and provides us with the security we desired; it will, I am sure, resist the high winds which used to cause occasional havoc to the previous 6-foot wooden fencing. As we are situated on an alleyway to the local primary school many people have seen the fence on their journeys to and from the school and we have had many favourable comments. We were very pleased with those who erected the fence – they got on quickly and professionally with the construction, while consulting with us over any problems/options as they arose. The whole job was completed to our satisfaction within a day. I would therefore recommend ColourFence to others."
Mr Wheeler - Yaxley
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the professional approach and the way you handled my order. The installation of my fence panels was without any hassle and they look good. The fact they are maintenance free for many years is also a bonus. I would thoroughly recommend this product and service. Many thanks"
Mr & Mrs Richardson - Ware
"On a chilly, dank December morning before it was even daylight, Mr. Freed and two young men arrived at our house. Very quickly, they erected a gazebo on the patio behind our house and unloaded all sorts of interesting items. Here they were able to do their preparations under cover. It rather gradually got lighter but remained gloomy and by mid- morning it was wet – a really miserable winter’s day. Nothing daunted, the three men worked extremely hard and efficiently. From time to time we were consulted on what was required, and Mr. Freed also talked to our next-door neighbours about the side fence as he had to work out how to accommodate their side gate. All was done courteously and the neighbours are happy with the result. We, too, are extremely happy with the outcome – a new fence across the bottom of our long garden and a side gate and fence which goes part of the way down one side of the garden. We were impressed with the workmanship and professionalism and the quality of the finished fence. We are happy to recommend ColourFence to others."
Mrs Ducker - Cambridge
"Thank you for your email and attachments. Yes, I am very pleased with the work. Good quality materials and excellent workmanship. Especially pleased with the new gate and Sharone’s suggestion that it should be sited further forward and hung on the house wall rather than the fence. So much easier to use. Thank you!"
