As well as damage to buildings many smaller structures such as fences and sheds were damaged or destroyed by the Canterbury earthquakes. Most of these were not covered by the earthquake cover provided by the Earthquake Commission (EQC). This has meant that funding to repair them has depended on the wording of individual insurance policies held by property owners. Piles of bricks next to tumbled fences and walls was common throughout Christchurch for many months following the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.
