Having a new fence built

We are demolishing our older house and building a new modern house. Our old fence won't look that good with a modern house, so we are searching for a sleek, modern fence to complement the new house. It's quite fun to shop for the new house and see how the different fence styles might look with the new house. This blog has some inspiration for other home owners looking to get a new fence installed. We have a range of materials, styles and fencing techniques on display on this blog. I hope you will find it useful when looking for a new fence.

Reasons for Installing Glass Pool Fencing


Rather than installing a metal fence around your pool, you could install a sleek glass design. Here are several benefits of these barriers.


A glass pool fence allows you an uninterrupted view of the pool area and garden. Thus, you can watch over children playing in the pool area when you're in the other sections of the garden. For the most inobtrusive look, install a frameless design that uses spigots secured into the ground; they're barely noticeable.


You won't have to worry about a glass pool fence breaking because they're so durable. These structures use toughened glass which is heated to extreme temperatures before being rapidly cooled. This technique renders the glass extremely tough: about four to five times stronger than glass window panes.


Glass fences don't provide any foot holes for children to climb over the fence. Nor do they have gaps underneath for them to get through. Even though they offer an open feeling because of their see-through nature, glass balustrades create a robust physical barrier. Additionally, they're designed to crumble into rounded, harmless cubes in the rare event of a breakage. Thus, the risk of injury is minimal.


Glass pool fences also block the cold wind. Thus, even in cooler seasons, you may enjoy a swim. The sun will shine through the glass, but the wind will be blocked. You'll get better use of the pool area, and it won't sit unused for so long.

Low Maintenance

These barriers are low maintenance as they don't require repainting or sealing like some materials. You can simply clean the glass with a recommended cleaner or even with dishwasher detergent. Additionally, the metal parts of the fence use elements like anodised aluminium or stainless steel that can withstand the elements and don't need repainting.

Framing Options

Even though a frameless pool fence creates the sleekest look, you also have several other framing options. Rather than using spigots at the base, the glass panels can be joined with elegant posts to create a semi-frame design. These models with more framing are usually cheaper than frameless designs. Thus, you can choose the best option to suit your needs, both aesthetically and financially.

Glass pool fencing can provide several benefits. It creates a transparent barrier that opens up the yard and lets you keep watch on the pool area regardless of where you are in the garden. To learn more about your options, contact local fencing contractors.
