Your family’s safety is a top priority. When you are deciding on a pool fence, it is an important decision. Maintaining a fence around your swimming pool helps to increase the safety of your yard. Plus, it discourages animals from wandering in as well! The three most popular types of fencing for your pool are aluminum, vinyl, and wood. Each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Do your research and find the perfect one for your property!
Because of its durability, aluminum has become one of the most popular pool fencing materials in America. The metal is coated with a special powder which discourages oxidation, which helps the fencing last for years and years with very little effort on the homeowners’ part.
- Highly durable
- Not much maintenance required
- Unobstructed view of landscaping and hardscape features
- Doesn’t really add any privacy
- Prone to rust
Vinyl fencing has been gaining popularity in leaps and bounds. It comes in a wide variety of styles, but only in two general sizes: standard and privacy. With its almost nonexistent maintenance requirements, it’s no wonder why so many homeowners choose vinyl pool fencing!
- Lots of privacy
- Low maintenance
- Many different styles to choose from
- Gates can sag over time
- Pickets can be bulky
- Prone to mildew in wet, shaded areas
Wood fencing is popular because of its relatively low price point and natural look. Over the last several years, it’s gotten a little less attention because of the growing popularity of vinyl fences, but plenty of homeowners still choose a wood fence for their pool every year!
- Can be easily shaped to match your exact needs
- Different paints and stains make color choices virtually limitless
- Requires up-keep
- Breaks down over time
