Pool Fences And 6 Safety Things To Consider When Shopping

6 Safety Considerations for Choosing a Pool Fence Company

Are you thinking about pool fences for child safety? There are several pool fencing companies, any many factors to consider when selecting the one that will give you the most value for your money and the best product to protect your family.

A good pool fence will help protect your children and pets while giving you peace of mind. Here are five things you should consider when choosing a pool fence company:

1. Do They Provide Free In-Person Estimates About Installing Your Pool Fence?

A good fencing company will first visit your backyard pool and then provide you with a free, written estimate on installing a pool fence. Avoid working with any company that does not give on-site estimates because there are various factors involved with the actual cost. The estimator is your first view of the company you are considering. The estimator should be knowledgeable, prompt, and courteous.

2. Do They Provide Details About Their Pool Fence Products and Installation Services On Their Website?

An ideal pool fence company will provide comprehensive information about their pool fence products, details on their installation services, and tips on maintaining a pool fence on their website. Find a company that makes it easy for you to find the answers to questions you may have about installing a pool fence. A reputable company should make you feel confident in that you are dealing with a trustworthy company that values its customers.

3. Are they Licensed, Bonded & Insured?

Pool owners should always make it a priority to make sure that whomever they choose to do business with is properly licensed, bonded and insured. Not all states require licensing, so check with your local municipality before signing a contract. Here is a list from Home Advisor of Contractor Licensing Requirements, State by State.

In states that require licensing, some pool safety companies may choose to operate without proper licensing or carry insurance. These factors can leave you stuck if they do not complete your installation or have a employee who is injured while at to your residence. Check with your local contractors board to see if they are up to date with their licensing & all required insurance policies.

4. Do They Have Positive Customer Reviews?

Research customer review websites and see what other customers say about their experiences with the company, their product and installation service. Check out reviews on websites such as Yelp and Angie’s List.

5. Ask Your Neighbors, Pool Service Technician, Family, And Friends About Their Experiences

Sometimes the best pool fencing companies are through word of mouth referrals. Ask people you know that have installed pool fences for their pools to gain insights on the company’s services and products. Your pool service technician also sees pools on a daily basis and can also provide referrals to what companies they see locallly.

6. Do They Provide Any Warranties or Offer Service Down the Road?

Ask the company if their pool fences are backed by a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects or workmanship. Companies may claim they do not need a warranty because their pool fences are indestructible and made from superior construction materials. However, there is no such thing as a indstruble mesh pool fence and you want to make sure you are aware of what they will fix if you have issues down the road. A fence with a good warranty is an assurance that the company will continue to support their product.

Down the road, you may need minor maintenance if someone breaks a part or causes damage to your fence. You want to make sure they will be around to offer you support when needed.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
