Wondering how to install a glass pool fence? If so, you’ve made a good choice as the latest styles in safety glass are quite attractive and easy to install. You should consider the cost of a glass fence before you decide to install one in your pool. Many fences today are less expensive than the older models that were made of wood or vinyl.
Some people think that they can install their pool fence, but this isn’t usually the case. This project is easier to do if you hire a professional fence company to come in and do it for you. You will need to have a few things on hand when you go to have your fence installed. If you don’t already have these items, now would be a good time to add them to your list. They include:
– Pool fence posts (usually made of wood or metal) – Swivel brackets (to secure the fencing to the pool) – Pool fence lights (you’ll need at least four) – Clear vinyl or plastic (to paint the fence) – Four corner stakes (to hold the fence in place) – Four corner lock picks – A friend or neighbour to help push the fence into place – A friend or neighbour to help empty the garbage of the pool
Once you have these items on hand, you should find a local company that offers services on how to install a glass pool fence. Ask them for prices for the items you’re needing to have installed. They should be able to give you an exact price, but it might vary depending on what’s included in the installation package, how many are involved, and what’s in your budget. The more you pay for, the faster the process will take, so keep that in mind when you make your decision.
Once you get everything in place, the next item in your list is the fence post holders. You can purchase these from your local home improvement store. You can also find them online, but there are a few reasons why you’d want to shop locally. If the company is very busy, it will be less likely they’ll have a lot of inventory lying around. Local companies are more likely to have the necessary inventory to install a glass pool fence quickly.
Once the post-holders are in place, you can put the trim around the pool. This should be done professionally, or you might damage the pool. Then, it’s time to install the “legs” on the pool fence. You can’t install these too early, since you want the fence to be sturdy. Make sure everything is tightened properly, then test the lock and try it out on the fence post holders.
