Can I Build my Own Glass Pool Fence? DIY Pool Fencing

With the reduction in material costs and the amount of internet how-to-guides, more and more people are considering DIY options like DIY Pool Fencing. We don’t want to deter you from this path, but we do strongly encourage that if you do not possess any construction or installing experience that you seek advice from a professional glass company first– because while you might save some money, it might perhaps come back to bite you down the road if you don’t get the job done properly.

As is the case with most materials now the DIY sector is rising in glass pool fencing and even though the main hardware distributors can offer to sell direct to the public we would suggest using a dedicated glass pool fence company. This has many merits, including the experience which can be divulged from the company you obtained it from. If they know what they are doing then they will be thrilled to offer you some useful tips if you choose to install the glass yourself.

Putting in a pool fence is not your ordinary DIY job by any means, installing glass panels for a glass pool fence, regardless of what the fixing surface does demand some unique tradesman like expertise. If you are a tradesman and are very proficient with tools then DIY glass pool fencing may be for you. This is no job for the uninitiated and we would suggest getting as much help and advice as possible before you attempt something like this. You may also need to speak with a pool safety fence certifier to be sure that what you intend to install will be compliant. It can be very disheartening to learn the glass pool fence you have installed and financed will not comply and will have to be relocated.

The plan

If you wish to take the DIY Pool Fencing path, the first thing that you will need is a plan. This means taking into account what kind of fencing that you want to install and as a result your budget. A large component of that will come from the type of area that you are looking to fence, and how big a fence you are going to need. The first step should be creating an in-depth plan of your pool space, and what you want it to look like. Once you know the area that you dealing with, you can measure out how far from the pool you want the fence to be and can then measure how long the fence will extend, and therefore how much fencing you will need to acquire. This is important to do from the start, because if you need a fence far longer than you first thought, then it could really have an effect on the kind of fence you can afford while sticking to your budget. In measuring out the pool fence area, please ensure that you are minimizing any prospective climb point areas.
