When May comes around in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, residential swimming pool owners begin to think of relaxing summer days by the poolside and summer pool parties. Others consider realizing their dream of having a backyard pool or even a hot tub. Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence recently worked with an Anne Arundel County couple to create their ideal pool fence. As a result, Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence received a great pool fence review from Teri and John! Check out this and more below.
Pool Fence Requirements
Every Maryland county has specific pool fence requirements to follow to prevent accidental or near-drownings at residential swimming pools. The best way to ensure nobody gets hurt is to create a barrier around the pool.
According to Anne Arundel County’s Department of Health, a residential swimming pool is any body of water deeper than two feet, including forms such as in-ground pools, above-ground pools, hot tubs, and spas. It is also located on a one or two-family property. The fence or wall would fully enclose the pool. The barrier itself must be at least four feet high with gaps no more than 4 inches wide, and access gates must be self-closing and self-latching and locking.
Aluminum is the strongest fencing material around, perfect for any property that needs durable security. Aluminum is highly durable and long-lasting and is also easy to maintain. All it requires is an occasional powerwash. One should only remember to not allow children to hang on the gate and avoid creating high and heavy piles beside the fence, lest it crash against it. Unlike cast iron, it will not rust and is much more lightweight. Aluminum also comes in varying styles and colors that blend in beautifully with the scenery.
Great Review from Teri & John
Teri and John took advantage of the benefits of aluminum fencing, pairing it nicely with their Anne Arundel County residential swimming pool. Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence had the honor of installing a 54″ ornamental aluminum fence in classic black, customized to meet Anne Arundel County’s pool fence codes. It also features a customized arched fence gate. As for Teri and John, they couldn’t be happier:
“Just wanted to follow-up with you both. Your team was here yesterday and were amazing. Personable, professional and focused all day they more than exceeded expectations. The final result is better than we had hoped and it was the “little touches” that impressed us the most. After the fence was completed, one of the crew went around and wiped down all the railings and made sure it was perfect. When they were finished, the area was cleaned and put back together as if nothing had ever been done. We have already heard from neighbors on both sides as to how much they like the new look! I have also mentioned you to a few folks who were also impressed with the workmanship and process.
Thanks for a great experience!
Teri & John
PS: Nelson was a joy to work with.”
