We at Legend Fence Corp are experts in all things fence related, so we’ve put together a handy guide for making your pool fence installation a breeze. However, if you’d rather get someone in to do it, then consider calling us for your pool fence installation in San Diego.
What to do before installing your pool fence
Pool fence installation in San Diego isn’t as simple as buying a fence and putting it up. Before you even select which materials will be best, you need to spend some time preparing the ground area around your pool. Begin by clearing away any pool furniture and decorations, as the last thing you want is a congested workspace.
Once that’s been done, make sure the ground is clear of any vegetation, which might require relocation of some of your favorite plants. Ideally the area should have a wide enough space around it that the fence can easily be installed, although you can always add some plants back in at a later date.
Next, decide on the layout of your pool fence. Along with size and shape, you should also consider where the gates will be, and the fence’s height. For a pool fence, waist height should be appropriate in most situations, although if you have energetic pets or adventurous children you might want to go a bit higher.
When it comes to materials, you have plenty of options. While wood is the least expensive, it also requires regular maintenance. At the other end of the scale you have vinyl fencing which is low maintenance. Chain-link or iron fencing is somewhere in the middle, and is both resilient and pleasing to look at.
DIY fence installation or hiring a contractor?
When it comes to pool fence installation in San Diego, it can be tempting to just do the job yourself. While doing it yourself has the potential to save you money, this can often be offset against you needing to buy tools and equipment for the job. Similarly, it can take a lot of time to do it yourself.
Hiring a contractor for your pool fence installation, however, comes with a number of benefits. Even though it might be a higher initial cost, the benefit is that you get the experience of a professional fence installation company, which often means the job gets done more quickly.
