Best Materials for a Pool Fence

Best Materials for a Pool Fence

Need a pool fence? Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence has a great selection for you.

There’s nothing like the ability to take a dip in your own pool in the summer. With all the enjoyment that comes with a residential pool, safety is still the priority. Maryland law requires every home to have a pool fence, and each county and city varies in its specific rules concerning total height and height from the ground. Meanwhile, one can choose a pool fence material that suits the home best.


Before choosing a pool fence material, consider what your needs are. Security and privacy are the two main factors to weigh. Keeping kids, pets, and intruders from wandering into your pool is the priority, so you will want a durable material. Meanwhile, privacy may be of less importance. Depending on the size of your yard, you may need the fence to keep your yard private from neighbors, or you may want to see through the fence to supervise pool time. Two other considerations are maintenance and appearance. Some materials need more upkeep than others, and some may look better on your property than not as well. 


One of the best materials for a pool fence is aluminum. It is the strongest option on the market, does not rust, and needs almost no maintenance. On the other hand, it is the most expensive material and does not give privacy. Aluminum works great on larger properties and can come in different colors to complement the scenery.


Vinyl, also known as PVC, is an increasingly popular choice for homes with or without a pool. They also are known for their durability and low maintenance, but come at a mid-range cost. Vinyl is flexible and can adhere to many styles, including picket, privacy, estate, and others.


Wood is another material that offers just as many styles as vinyl does, including privacy. Wood costs the least, but does need more maintenance to prevent graying, warping, and rotting. This material, however, can last decades without much wear. It provides adequate security.


Chain-link fencing is one of the most economical, durable, and low-maintenance options for fencing. The downside is that not many know about all the types of chain-link fencing there are. They do not have to come in gray, and slatted chain-link fences offer greater privacy. If any of the above materials spark your interest, contact Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence for a fantastic pool fence.
