Franconia Pool Fence Requirements
According to Virginia State laws regarding fencing of swimming pools, the pool must be surrounded by a vertical barrier that is at least 4 feet in height. The fence can be anything from a chain link fence to a picket or privacy fence—it just needs to prevent small children from getting through. However, it is best to check with your insurance company as some require the fence to be taller.
What Type of Pool Fence Should I Install?
There is a variety of pool fencing available that meets all necessary safety codes. However, given the number of options available, the type of fence you install around your swimming pool is entirely up to you. The experts at Carter Fence suggest that you should consider these three things before choosing:
Privacy – depending on your home’s location you may want to install a six foot privacy fence around your pool. This will keep out neighbors and ensure that while swimming in the pool, you have maximum privacy.
Aesthetics – if you think that a large fence would take away from the beauty of your Franconia backyard, you can install an aluminum fence. This type of fence blends in with the surroundings and doesn’t block your view of the rest of your yard.
Maintenance – certain fencing requires more maintenance than others. Chain link and aluminum fencing require little to no maintenance while wood fencing needs to be washed and painted.
