During the winter of 2007, due to strong winds, Sharone found himself in need of a new garden 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 fencing concept to him. Steel fencing? Initially, it didn’t sound particularly attractive but once he’d seen the product, he was on board. With a young family, the low maintenance and security aspects particularly appealed to him. Also, the fact that the metal fencing is environmentally friendly and comes with a 25-year warranty was important, and it looked great! ColourFence is a strong, lightweight, practical alternative to traditional fencing.
“We are very pleased with our new metal fence. It was installed quickly, efficiently and with minimumal 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 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 has been the no. 1 UK ColourFence franchise (June 2018)

Gill - Wimpole
"I am delighted with my new Colourfence - it looks great and it is a fantastic addition to my front garden. The fence is excellent quality and was a very reasonable price. Sharone and his team were polite, efficient and professional throughout and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others"
Sue - Bury St Edmunds
"I would like to compliment your company on a very efficient service, Luke and his colleagues did a marvellous job in awful weather conditions, they soldiered on. From their arrival when they introduced themselves very politely to their departure, I was kept informed every step of the way of what they were doing, making sure I was happy with the work. These 3 guys are a credit to your company. Sharone is very pleasant to deal with and again making sure I was happy with the work.. I would not hesitate to recommend ColourFence. It looks good, and I am looking forward to the low maintenance of it. Thank you for your service."
Rosemary - St. Neots
“We are very pleased with the railings. They look good, and the quality is good. We have had a lot of compliments from passers-by, and I am busy working on that part of the garden, weather permitting! I think it will all look good this summer! The work was done quickly, and well. They worked hard! Thank you.”
Mark - Cambridge
"We first had Colourfence installed ten years ago and, despite many severe storms and high winds, it remains as solid as the day Sharone installed it. Our garden is very open, and many other fences nearby have come and gone over the life of our Colourfence. We are looking forward to having more fitted shortly elsewhere. At Colourfence, they are responsive, professional and a pleasure to deal with. The product truly is "fit and forget" - you won't regret choosing it."
Jean - Cambridge
"We would like to say how pleased we are with our new Colourfence Garden Fencing. Sharone and his team were polite, efficient, always on time, and the job was done in a very tidy and professional way. Luke and Rob always arrived when they said they would and worked very well together. The completed fence looks superb, and we have had many complimentary comments about it."
Melanie - Cambridge
"We've just had some colour fencing fitted in our garden to replace old wooden panels and it really has transformed the garden. It looks so clean and streamlined compared to traditional fencing. I would thoroughly recommend this product and company. Very friendly and professional service and they made minimal mess fitting."
Mrs Thrower - Burwell
"A huge thank you to Sharone, Rob and Luke for the excellent Colourfence (in green) you put up in my garden. The product is superb, robust, and a lovely colour. Many of my neighbours have commented on how stunning it looks. Rob and Luke were two of the nicest workmen I have ever encountered, and nothing was too much for them. Before they started, they went through any slight changes they were going to have to make due to the groundwork which, overall, made no difference to the finished product. A great company to deal with, very nice people and very genuine. A real joy to have on my premises. If you want good, very low maintenance fencing, don't waste your money on wooden fencing, go straight to Colourfence. It is expensive, but worth every penny! Thank you Colourfence and to the wonderful team. I would recommend them to anyone."
Annabel - Cambridge
"Having spent a great deal of money replacing fencing that kept on going down in the extremely high winds we have been experiencing, and the many hours of weatherproofing them, I decided to invest in the fencing from Colourfence. I now wish I had invested in it many, many years ago! I am extremely happy with the result of the installation, and the installers could not have been more helpful and polite. Where there were potential problems in losing a little bit of my garden due to the original boundary post positions, they came up with solutions to minimise this happening. They discussed all that they would be doing prior to the actual installation to make sure I was happy with it. A first-class product and first-class service - thank you, Sharone and your brilliant team of installers. I would recommend Colourfence to everyone that needs fencing replaced, getting anything else would be a total waste of money."
Mr & Mrs Williams - Cambridge
I am a keen gardener and my husband and I wanted to find a fence in a good-looking background for a long border of shrubs, bulbs and herbaceous plants. We also wanted a fence which was durable and would create minimal disruption to install and maintain. We chose the blue Colour Fence. The consultant who visited us initially was helpful and informative and the team of two who did the installation were efficient, friendly, courteous and aware of the need to have the minimum impact on the closely-planted border. We are very pleased with the result and look forward to enjoying the effect of the background colour as the border grows and develops through the seasons of the year. We are confident that it will give us trouble-free pleasure in the coming years. Compared with the cost of maintenance of a wooden fence, and replacement after 8-10 years, we think that the Colour Fence solution will also prove to be economic.
Sabrina - Cambridge
"I am thrilled with the result of my new Colourfence. The two-man team who erected it were very competent, friendly and pleasant in every way. They did an amazing job, taking out masses of overgrown climbers and other excess greenery broke up the old fence and packed it all in their trailer to take away. Then they proceeded to erect my gorgeous new fence, solving the problem of my sloping garden easily. I was so delighted to see what a beautifully clear space I will now have. My garden is wider by at least a foot along the side, and there is a whole new bed for me to plant flowers and grasses in. So much better than the old wooden fence that one needed to disguise with climbers. I am very happy."
Sabrina - Cambridge
"I am more than thrilled with my new fence and with the superb job that your excellent team have done for me. It was all a real delight and I enjoyed having them here and watching the work in progress. It is way beyond my expectations. Thank you to all three of you - it’s just been a great experience and my fence is a real inspiration to get me started in my spring planting of flowers and bulbs - nothing tall to obscure my beautiful fence. My best wishes for Christmas and New Year."
John and Barbara - Royston
“We are very pleased with the completed fencing. It looks very well made and finished to a very high standard. Your fencing contractors, Luke and Rob, were very hard workers over a period of two and a half days. They consulted us if any decisions needed to be made with boundary lines and rise and fall of the fence. We would have no hesitation to recommend your company ColourFence, Luke and Rob to our family and friends and any other interested parties. We will have no maintenance, repairs, treatment etc. for many years to come ( at least 25 ), the rain will do the washing down of the fence to keep it clean. Thank you all once again for all your advice and valuable help, Barbara and I wish you and your company well in the future”
Carol - Cambridge
"Love my fence it looks really smart and no maintenance, customer service and fitting was first class."
Mr Wick in Cambridgeshire
"The ColourFence team was very punctual on the day arranged for our quote and extremely knowledgeable and professional, the quote was fair so we accepted straight away and an installation date was agreed. They arrived on the agreed day and over 2 days proceeded to produce an installation of the highest quality, the finished job is stunning and we are recommending ColourFence - Cambridge to everyone, it's a bit more expensive than a wooden fence but definitely worth it."
Zahra in Cambridge
"The metal fence and gate are beautiful and have blended into the look of our property perfectly. From start to finish service has been excellent. The team did a very professional job. It has been a pleasure to do business with ColourFence. I am recommending the service to all my friends."
Mr & Mrs Oakes in Cambridge
"I found the experience of dealing with ColourFence in Cambridge very easy. The team was helpful with good advice and ideas when providing our quote. There was no pressure selling and we felt very comfortable when deciding. The product its self is second to none, it is truly first-rate material. I was able with the teams guidance and was very impressed." They were all very friendly and considerate and took great care not just with the installation but with our existing garden and the neighbours gardens. The work was carried out at great pace despite truly atrocious weather and they managed to finish slightly ahead of planned, giving me back a fantastic looking garden and a beautiful new metal garden fence and garden gate, which has attracted lots of attention from neighbours and passer by's, asking for details. I have no reservations in recommending ColourFence to family, friends and strangers. I will be having the team back as soon as they start installing the new range of ColourSheds. If you are reading this testimonial and want a closer look at the work they have done I'm sure the team will give you the address, you won't miss us, its the bungalow with crowds of people admiring the fence."
R Margieson in Mepal
"I contacted ColourFence and they came out at a convenient time to look at my old fencing. the team was very friendly and professional and gave me an instant quote which I was happy with. I was eager to have my new garden fencing completed as soon as possible as I needed to puppy proof my garden. The team managed to find a date for me which I really appreciated. My new ColourFence is now in place and I have to say I am over the moon, they look so smart and have really transformed the garden. I need further fencing towards the front of the garden and wouldn't hesitate to use ColourFence again and would recommend them to anyone."
Mr & Mrs Dale in Great Cornard
"We had a very tatty traditional fence situated between our front garden and our neighbours’ garden replaced with some very attractive metal garden railings with spear heads in black. The operation went very smoothly, from the initial site visit by the ColourFence Cambridge team, 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 team arrived at the time and date planned and completed all the work in about 3 hours. The 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."
Mr & Mrs Upchurch in Impington
"Having contacted the ColourFence Cambridge team via their website the team met with us, after measuring up the site we discussed the options available and cost. Everyone was very professional and never pressured us into having anything we didn't want. On the day of the new metal garden fencing being erected the team arrived early and prepared the area and quickly erected our new ColourFence 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 the ColourFence Cambridge team to supply and carry out the work to anyone."
Mr & Mrs in Moden
"I can honestly say that the work was carried out to a high standard and your installers certainly work hard and are very polite."
D Sanderson in Milton
"Thank you. I am really pleased with my new ColourFence. The team 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."
Stuart Newman in Soham
"We are very happy with the new ColourFence your team put up for us, we have had many comments from friends on how good it looks. Your team did a great job putting it up , a first class job done by all. Thank-you."
Dr Braganza in Sawston
"I wish to express my appreciation to the ColourFence Cambridge team. They were the essence of politeness & good humour. They listened carefully & offered gentle advice. They worked diligently without loud music or raucous chatter & left the place tidy on job completion. In other words, the job was very well done."
Ian and Sue in Littleport
"Really pleased with my new ColourFence. The guys worked hard and did a great job. It looks good and will add value to our property. Slept well listening to those strong fen winds. Thanks again we recommend this product to everyone."
Ms Cobholt in Kenny Hill
"Thank you very much for your excellent and professional service. Outstanding customer care with great quality product. Would recommend to all."
Mr & Mrs Clement in Somersham
"I would recommend, the efficiency of the work was very high. The ColourFence Cambridge team was very thorough in their work and left my garden very tidy. I hope to see my new garden fencing endure the bad weather just as ColourFence declares. Overall we are very pleased."
Lionel - Cambridge
"Excellent product and service."
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”.

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!"
