Choosing the Best Material for Your Pool Fence

Choosing the Best Material for Your Pool Fence hercules gsa

According to Maryland law, every property with a pool must have a pool fence

Being able to relax in a pool during the hot summer months is one of life’s greatest pleasures. No matter how much we may enjoy our oasis, though, we must not forget about the importance of pool safety. For example, according to Maryland law, every property with a pool must have a pool fence, though each county and city may differ in its requirements concerning total height and height from the ground. Regardless of what the regulations dictate, you’ll need to choose the perfect material for your perfect pool fence.

Factors to Consider

To choose the right material for your pool fence, you need first to understand what you’re trying to get out of it. Many people are concerned about both security and privacy. Keeping kids and pets in is a goal, while keeping intruders out can also be a priority. Privacy may or may not be important for you depending on the size of your yard and whether or not you have other fencing installed. Maintenance and appearance are other factors that may weigh into your decision to install a pool fence.


Vinyl, sometimes referred to as PVC, is becoming a popular choice for many properties, whether they have a pool or not. This is in part due to their durability and simple maintenance, as well as their flexibility in terms of styles like picket, estate, and privacy pool fences. However, a vinyl pool fence can come at a mid-range cost and may not look as nice as other options.


One great option you may not have thought about yet is aluminum. It’s a strong material that doesn’t rust and requires little to no maintenance. It also tends to be more expensive and may not offer you privacy if that’s your goal. However, an aluminum pool fence can be a great complement to any kind of scenery.


Wood fences are always a classic. They can give you a good sense of privacy and can often be affordable, but you must remember that there will be a good deal of maintenance that goes into maintaining a wood pool fence. Preventing graying, warping, and rotting are all important and could require painting or finishing periodically. 


If you want a fencing option that’s affordable yet durable, look no further than chain-link fencing. They may not be the best looking fences, but they sure are effective. There are different kinds of chain-link fencing out there as well, so you may be surprised by the versatility of this material!
