Can I Set up my Own Glass Pool Fence? DIY Pool Fencing

With the drop in building material costs and the amount of internet DIY guides, a growing number of people are resorting to DIY alternatives. We don’t want to discourage you from this course, but we do encourage that if you do not have any building or installing expertise that you seek advice from a skilled glass company first– because while you might save some cash, it could come back to get you down the road if you don’t get the job done properly.

Just like most materials now the DIY market is growing in glass pool fencing and even though the main hardware distributors can offer to sell direct to the public we would advise using a dedicated glass pool fence company. This has lots of benefits, including the knowledge which can be divulged from the service you purchased it from. If they know what they are doing then they will be pleased to provide you some useful tips if you elect to install the glass yourself.

Installing a pool fence is not your average DIY job whatsoever, installing glass panels for a glass pool fence, despite what the fixing surface is does necessitate some special tradesman like talents. If you are a tradesman and are very skilled with tools then DIY Pool Fencing could be for you. This is no job for the uninitiated and we would suggest getting as much guidance as possible before you attempt something like this. You may also have to speak with a pool safety fence certifier to be sure that what you intend to install will be compliant. It can be very disheartening to find out the glass pool fence you have installed and paid for will not comply and will have to be moved.

The plan

If you choose to take the DIY Pool Fencing path, the initial thing that you will need is a plan. This means taking into account what type of fencing that you would like to install and therefore your budget. A large part of that will come from the type of area that you are looking to fence, and how large a fence you are going to need. The first step should be creating an in-depth plan of your pool area, and what you want it to look like. Once you know the area that you dealing with, you can measure out how far from the pool you want the fence to be and can then measure how long the fence will extend, and therefore how much fencing you will need to purchase. This is important to do from the start, because if you need a fence far longer than you first thought, then it could really affect the kind of fence you can afford while sticking to your budget. In measuring out the pool fence area, please make sure that you are minimizing any potential climb point areas.
