My Top 3 Tips For Pool Fencing Buyers

The interest for private swimming pools have increased in Australia significantly. One reasons is because the dropping prices but also because the fun and the potential increase in value of your home once you decide to sell it. Last year when we installed our in ground pool we were looking at fencing options that suited our taste and home in terms of style and colour. Quickly we realised the options are endless and without a distinct idea we are going to be disappointed with our choice.

We decided to take a piece of paper and write down everything we preferred. I remember that we wrote down, clear visibility, great safety records and stunning. Doing that initial research it did not took long before we are looking at glass fencing options. We pretty soon contacted few companies and enquired about their services to find an option that suited us.

Mean we scouted for glass fencing we also spoke to neighbours about what fence they were using for their pools. Quickly we established that glass fencing was the way to go. At the end, before going ahead if the project we also contacted a regulatory body and making sure the company we were dealing with were legit (we heard to many stories)
