If you have a pool in your yard, you need a fence around it to keep children (yours or your neighbors’) away from the pool and out of harm’s way. When it comes to pool fence designs and materials, you can choose from several options.
Wood is a popular fencing material. If you want to have a wood pool fence installed on your property, you can choose from a wide range of species and paint or stain the fence in the color of your choice. Keep in mind that wood can be damaged by moisture and the sun and that it needs to be repainted or re-stained on a regular basis.
Vinyl is another popular fencing material. It’s durable and easy to care for, but it can be damaged and knocked down by strong winds. Also, vinyl fencing is constructed with the slats close together. That can make it difficult or impossible to see what’s going on in the pool if you’re not in the immediate vicinity. If you are in the pool area, a vinyl fence can block the view of the scenery around you.
Bamboo has caught on and become a popular choice for pool fencing. It’s a strong and attractive material that can resist termite damage, but there is an important downside to consider. Bamboo is highly flammable. If there is a wildfire in your area, or if a fire starts at a neighbor’s house and spreads, a bamboo pool fence can quickly go up in flames.
A glass pool fence consists of a series of durable tempered glass panels that are set in posts. Tempered glass is much tougher than standard glass and much less likely to break. If it does break, it shatters into small, rounded pieces that are unlikely to cause injuries.
Another advantage of a glass pool fence is that it won’t block the view. You will be able to see the pool area from another part of the yard or from inside the house. When you and your guests are swimming or lounging around the pool, you’ll be able to enjoy the scenery around you. In addition, glass pool fences are easy to maintain.
