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.

What is the World’s Largest Fence?

Dingo Barrier Fence

DID YOU KNOW?

The world’s largest fence as recorded by Guinness World Records is 3437 miles long. It stands at 6 feet high and a foot below ground. Or otherwise known to Australians as the Dingo Barrier Fence. This make it not just the longest fence in the world, but also one of the longest structures in the world.
Dingo puppiesAccording to Wikipedia:

The Dingo Fence or Dog Fence is a pest-exclusion fence that was built in Australia during the 1880s and finished in 1885, to keep dingoes out of the relatively fertile south-east part of the continent (where they had largely been exterminated) and protect the sheep flocks of southern Queensland.

NO! The Dingo Won’t Get Your Baby

But it may get your sheep. the fence has helped reduce losses of sheep to predators such as the Dingo. In just one station, Dingos killed over 11,000 sheep in less than a year. Those are some hungery dingos!

Fence Construction

The fence was made mostly of high wire mesh about 5 feet tall. Some areas to the south in Australia are made of a multi-strand electric fence.

Vinyl Fencing is 5 Times Stronger than Wood!

Vinyl FencingAs far as the old saying “good fences make good neighbors” goes, the decision of what type of fencing to choose can do a lot to foster good relationships. Vinyl is an excellent material because of its durability and strength, its ability to improve property values and curb appeal, and its ease of maintenance. Yes, you can impress your neighbors and enhance the overall aesthetics of your block with vinyl fencing.

Properly installed vinyl fencing will last a lifetime. It’s 5 times stronger than wood, and it’s flexible and can stand up to rain and high winds. You must have driven around your neighborhood after a large storm and seen a number of collapsed wooden fences. Well, that won’t happen with vinyl, and since it doesn’t absorb moisture, the posts, boards and accessories won’t rot, rust, peel or blister.

Unlike chain link or wood fencing, vinyl doesn’t need any additional stains, sealants or paint to maintain its original color and beauty. And if it is ever a victim of vandalism or graffiti, most stains come off easily with water, a household cleaner and a bit of elbow grease. Because quality vinyl fencing is made to last a lifetime, when the time comes to sell your home, potential buyers will recognize this as one element they won’t ever have to worry about replacing.

How to Install a Vinyl Fence

If you are a DIY’er Do-It-Yourself kind of person, we came across an interesting video on how to install a vinyl fence. This is from an episode of This Old House. We thought is was interesting and that you may too. Give it a watch, if you have questions not answered in this video, feel free to give us a call. If you have an idea of what you want to do, give us a try. You simply design your fence and send it over. No up front payment is required. We will review your needs and respond with the best price possible.

Steps discussed in the video.

Steps:
1. Stretch a string across the yard to establish the fence line. Use a line level to ensure the string is level.
2. When starting against an existing fence post or other object, dig the first fence-post hole to 32 inch deep using a manual post-hole digger.
3. Prepare the vinyl fence posts by first cutting a pressure-treated 5×5 into 24-inch-long pieces. Insert a piece of 5×5 inside the hollow vinyl post. Secure it with galvanized screws.
4. Mix water and concrete in a wheelbarrow.
5. Stand fence post in hole and fill around it with concrete. Keep the concrete 2 inches below grade.
6. Use a 4-foot level to ensure that the post is perfectly plumb.
7. Use a power auger to dig the remaining fence-post holes.
8. Connect the first fence panel to the post, then secure it with screws fitted with snap caps.
9. Continue to install posts and panels to complete the run of fencing.
10. Install the top rail, and then insert the short, square spindles. Secure the spindles with galvanized screws.
11. Finish the fence by installing a cap to the top of each post. Secure the caps with PVC cement.

Vinyl and Aluminum Fencing Have Broken the Chains of Tradition

Aluminum FencingWhen they hear the word “fence,” many people automatically visualize what have been the two most conventional styles for the past 50 years – chain link and wood. Other than wrought iron which can be cost-prohibitive for many homeowners, these two styles have been the most common. The primary reasons for this were lack of other options, price, and that most fencing companies preferred to install chain link or wood quickly with low labor costs.

But over the past several years, two relatively new materials have gained popularity. The first is aluminum fencing – a lightweight, maintenance free product that offers the same elegant look as wrought iron. The other is vinyl (PVC). The main reasons for their popularity are ease of installation and little or no maintenance.

Another reason why aluminum has become a preferred choice is largely due to the fact that it is ideal for pool fences. Since most local authorities require a barrier around swimming pools, aluminum fencing appeals to many homeowners because of its open picket style and the beauty of wrought iron.

Black vinyl is another way to enjoy the elegance of ornamental wrought iron, as well as the maintenance free benefits of aluminum fencing. The rich, deep black color will hold its look year after year. Built to last a lifetime, vinyl won’t shrink, rust, decompose, rot, fade or even show scratches.

Not Every Vinyl Fence is Created Equally – Be Aware of the Ingredients

vinyl fenceThere are many types and brands of fencing on the market today, and navigating them can often be compared to navigating a mine field, even for a seasoned professional! So here are a few important facts to take into account when choosing a vinyl fence for your business or home.

Pay attention to the ingredients – not all vinyl fencing is created equal. Professional grade fences are made from virgin PVC (vinyl), while consumer grade fences are frequently made with recycled plastics – often scraps obtained from the good stuff. Many brands actually have their professional grade materials available only from professional deck and fence dealers. They then make a separate brand for big box stores.

While it’s important to use recycled materials and shop for eco-friendly green fencing products, the truth is that some are less desirable because fencing must withstand sun damage, high winds and other weather elements. A vinyl fence made with inferior recycled plastics will often become brittle, sag, warp and fade prematurely, especially in cold climates.

Also pay attention to the length of the posts. An inferior grade vinyl fence often comes with shorter posts. The posts should be long enough to extend into concrete footers for stability. Moreover, the fence thickness is often less than a professionally graded product, and the picket size is smaller as well.

Key Things to Take into Account before You Order Your Fence

Vinyl is fast becoming the preferred alternative to traditional wood fences. While it may cost more initially, vinyl will pay for itself many times because it lasts longer and needs virtually no maintenance. In the fencing industry, vinyl is a relatively new material, which can mimic both rail and wood panel fences without fading, rotting or showing the effects of time and weather. It’s the ideal choice for a beautiful, easy to maintain fencing system.

Before you order your fence, ask yourself the following 3 questions:

  1. order your fenceWhat is the function of the fence?
  2. What style will accomplish this function best?
  3. What style will complement the architecture of my home and my landscaping?

Another good thing to do before you order your fence is to familiarize yourself with some terminology:

  • Posts – These are the 4x4s which are set firmly into the ground to provide stability.
  • Terminal Posts or Main Posts are found on either side of all gates and at the corners of the fence.
  • Line Posts provide attachment points for fence panels, as well as stability.
  • Rails are the horizontal supports that run between posts.
  • Bay refers to the space between the posts.

Finally, before you order your fence, take the time to lay it out carefully. Use graph paper to make drawing easier. A wrong measurement now may result in big problems later.

Decorative Fences – Aesthetics Count as Much as Functionality!

Decorative FencesDecorative fences are meant to complement the exteriors of buildings and homes. These fences are made in many designs and styles. In addition to a choice of materials, the patterns can be vertical or horizontal, or the fence can be designed to offer privacy. Whatever your choice is, a decorative fence should offer aesthetics as well as functionality.

If privacy is your main goal, you can use plants and attractive hedges that will also add to the beauty of your fence. They’ll also make your garden look more natural and organized.

Aluminum decorative fences can be molded into a variety of pretty shapes, sizes and designs. When vertically patterned, they always look elegant. The rods can be made into designs like angels, roses or other delicate shapes to be placed on the upper parts of the fence. So if you want your home to look sophisticated and royal, then black aluminum will do the trick.

Vinyl decorative fences are also a perfect choice. They can be customized to match your home’s style and the design of your landscaping. To beautify a vinyl fence, you can add posts, planks, panels and other decorative accessories. Best of all, you’ll never have rotting problems with vinyl, and maintenance is virtually nil. Vinyl comes in many stunning colors, so if you’re looking for great aesthetics, this material won’t let you down.
