Vinyl or Aluminum Fence for Swimming Pools? Both are a Great Choice!

Aluminum fenceBuying fencing for a pool is an investment in the health and safety of your family and friends. When you have made the decision to purchase it, you will be confronted with several choices, but the main aspects to consider are rust and UV protection, strength, security, aesthetics and, of course, your budget. Here, we’re going to focus on a vinyl or aluminum fence – two relatively modern materials that are gradually taking over from traditional wood and chain link fencing.

  • Vinyl: Typically, the sections are 8 ft., but they can be easily cut to accommodate the desired size. Vinyl offers a fresh, clean look, and in comparison to wrought iron and wood fencing, it’s inexpensive and maintenance-free. If you live in an area of high winds, have an aluminum insert put in the bottom rail to provide extra stability.
  • Aluminum Fence: Durable, attractive and strong, it can be easily installed by DIYers with relatively little frustration and time. There is a huge array of grades, colors, heights and styles available, so in order to be happy with your final choice, do some homework.

In addition to choosing a vinyl or aluminum fence for your pool, you’ll also have to consider buying a gate. You can get a self-locking gate or choose one that requires a combination or key.
