The invention of things like modular pool fencing means that DIY fencing is now easier than ever. Putting a new pool fence up is very simple, especially if you have your own tools and a bit of experience using them. The average person should be able to put up a new glass pool fence in a weekend without any problems, and this can save you a lot of money.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a short guide to DIY glass pool fencing. It’s important to realise that most of the steps involved are administrative, which means that the actual fencing is a relatively minor part of the process.
Step 1: Plan Your Fence
The first thing that you need to do is create a plan of your proposed pool fence. A lot of pool fencing companies offer online fence planners which allow you to input all of the relevant information in a quick and easy manner. You need to make sure that you include details about any walls of other fences that are close to your proposed fence, and you need to make sure that you include the position of your gate.
Step 2: Choose Your Fencing Style
There are two main glass pool fencing styles – frameless and semi-frameless. You need to do some research into the pros and cons of each and choose the one which meets your needs the best. Most people go for the frameless option, but both are very modern and stylish.
