One of the most important decisions when building a swimming pool is choosing the right fencing.
Queensland has strict regulations that mandate all private and public pools are made safe for young children. The Queensland government made pool fencing mandatory and recommended design guidelines that all homeowners and installers must abide by.
Glass is a great fencing choice for your new or existing pool fence. This is one reason why many homeowners decide glass for their new pool.
If you are considering glass pool fencing, here are a few pros and cons.
Mandatory pool fencing on the Gold Coast can seem off-putting, however, it gives you the chance to revitalise your yard. Glass is an attractive and timeless material. This is one of its biggest advantages because it fits many architectural styles and can inject an air of sophistication to any property.
The idea of having glass pool fencing is to prevent children from falling into the water when they are not being supervised. This is a great step towards ensuring safety, in addition to allowing you to see into the pool enclosure without any obstructions.
Nobody wants to spend endless amounts of time looking after their pool fencing. Glass is durable and requires very little maintenance. Keeping it clean with a soft cloth and a mild detergent is often enough to remove smudges or grease marks. Thanks to this, it is easy to keep it looking its best for many years.
The Cons of Choosing Glass
All of the advantages of glass are not always available if you have a very tight budget. You can choose between frameless and semi-frameless glass pool fencing. The second option is more affordable, but it can be pricier than aluminium pool fencing. Although glass is definitely worth the investment, it all depends on how much you can spend.
