How to Choose the Right Pool Fencing?

If you are looking for the right pool fencing, you will come across so many options in terms of choice of material, aesthetics, durability, and much more. If you know what you need, it will not be difficult to make the right choice from among all these options. This guide will make it easier for you to select just the perfect fence for your swimming pool.

1. Cost Factors

There are many factors associated with pool fencing which will affect its cost. If you want to keep the costs to the minimal, wooden fencing may be the right option. Tubular fences also don’t cost much. Whichever material you choose, it is recommended to get them installed by professionals. The other material options include glass panels, vinyl and metal like aluminium, wrought iron, and even steel. Compare the prices and choose the type of fence that best suits your budget.

2. Choice of Color

Most homeowners will consider color to be a very important factor for their pool fencing. It is recommended to choose a color that perfectly complements or blends in with your landscape or outdoor color and décor.

Black and brown can blend in with almost all types and colors of pools and outdoor décor. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try other colors. But if your garden or yard has a number of colors and designs, it will be best to choose something that’s neutral.

  • Beige is a color that can work as effectively as black and brown, sometimes even better
  • If you have a mostly green backyard, you can also consider green mesh pool fencing
  • Brown and black will not clash with most colors and styles of décor
  • A two-tone color can also help create some good amount of contrast, and also blend in with your yard’s decor

These colors are also suitable for more traditional styles of pools. If the type of pool fencing you choose has frame or borders, you can try something different on it. Choose something that coordinates well with the pool’s design and the yard. Because you can paint some of the fence types to your custom requirements, you can give a perfectly matching look to your pool area.

3. Maintenance Needs

Does your budget allow regular maintenance of your pool fencing? This is an important factor to consider for long-term expenses on the fence.  You should also consider whether you have the time to take care of the fencing.

  • Glass and metal pool fencing will require washing on a regular basis of a clean look
  • Wooden fencing will have to be stained and painted. The boards may need to be replaced every few years
  • Tubular or brick pool fencing may require minimal maintenance and repair

Vinyl fences also require nothing more than periodic washing.

So consider these 3 factors when choosing the best pool fencing for your home. You can always choose something that saves you money, both in the short term and long term and address your needs for aesthetic appeal.

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.
