My husband and I had been saving and planning to install an inground swimming pool in the backyard for quite a few years.
When we finally called a pool company and got an estimate, the cost was plenty high.
Although the price was going to strain our budget, we decided to go ahead with the project. After the excavation had been completed and our lawn totally destroyed, the swimming pool contractor informed us that we’d need to have a fence installed around the pool. In order for the swimming pool to meet safety codes, a fence is a requirement. My husband and I had assumed that the swimming pool contractor was handling every phase of the job. We also needed to find a licensed electrician to take care of the necessary wiring. Not only did this significantly increase the cost of the project, but we had to research, find and coordinate the fencing contractor and electrician. The completion of the swimming pool was delayed several times because of the electrician. Fortunately, the fencing company was wonderful. They sent a representative right over who discussed options for design and materials. We chose a vinyl fence because of durability, longevity and minimal maintenance. We picked a style that provides a great deal of privacy. The fencing contractor installed the fence without any delays or issues. Now that we finally have the swimming pool all filled with water, my whole family is enjoying it. The fence is definitely an asset and improves the security, safety and aesthetics of our backyard. Unfortunately, we’ll be paying off the pool for the next several years.
