How Much Does a Pool Fence Cost?


How much does a pool fence cost?

Pool fence prices depend on the type of pool fence you decide to purchase, but an average estimate would be between $1,500 and $10,000 or more. Typically, you will pay between $15 and $25 per linear foot. In many states and municipalities, fencing around your pool is required, usually with an inward swinging, self-closing gate. Fences are usually required to be at least four or five feet tall for inground pools.

Overall, the final cost of your pool fence is greatly determined by its materials, with options from mesh to glass. But All-Safe recommends only one type for the highest possible safety and efficacy.

What is Pool Fence

Mesh Fencing

All-Safe mesh pool fencing costs include both installation and parts. Prices range between $1,500 – $2,500 on average. The cost will vary depending on the size and shape of your pool, any elevation changes, the number of gates, and the type of surface on which the fence will be installed.

Our best recommendation is a mesh pool fence because they are the most reliable and safest pool solutions available. They are also very economical compared to alternative fencing types. Mesh is the only type of pool fence that All-Safe recommends for reliability, safety, and efficacy. All-Safe mesh pool fences are also priced fairly for your family.[/two_third_last]

Wrought Iron Fencing

A pool fence’s cost is usually correlated with the expense of materials. Wrought iron fences are a common type of pool fence. They are strong and durable, but their appeal is mostly decorative and allow children to climb, compromising safety. Their popularity is being diminished by mesh fencing, a more cost-effective, reliable and safer option. A wrought iron pool fence’s pricing averages between $3,000 and $10,000.

Chain Link Fencing

While chain link fences remain popular for building security and recreational areas, they are not a popular choice for pool safety. Many pool owners have caught on to the fact that children can easily get a foothold in the diamond-shaped links, allowing them to climb easily. It is also important to note that these fences are not intended to be removable, and this permanence will make it difficult to remove. So while chain link pool fence prices are usually cheaper, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, we do not recommend them for their lack of safety.

Glass Fencing

Glass pool fences are considered some of the most beautiful, but also the most permanent and expensive. The nice aesthetic can also be difficult to maintain with frequent cleaning. Expect the average upfront pool fence cost to be $7,500 to $50,000.

Summary of Pool Fence Prices

Mesh Fencing $1,500 – $2,500
Wrought Iron Fencing $3,000 – $10,000
Wood Fencing $2,200 – $12,500
Chain Link Fencing $1,000 – $5,000
Glass Fencing $7,500 – $50,000

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.
