Glass Pool Fencing Advantages

Glass Pool Fencing

Your pool area will look larger than it actually is. Looking from the pool to outside the pool area gives the swimmer the feeling of being in a more expansive environment.

A glass pool fence is easy to maintain. A timber fence can rot and need constant painting or staining when exposed to the elements and a steel fence, even though powder coated, will eventually rust. Glass fencing only needs cleaning occasionally making it not only practical but a low maintenance fence.

Safety around a swimming pool is paramount. As a parent you want to have permanent eye contact with the kids and having a glass pool fence allows you to keep a visual on them at all times.

It is a type of pool fence that blends in with any outdoor decor. In some cases it can enhance to look of your backyard.

Coming in a thickness of up to 12mm, glass fencing is tough and durable. The glass panels are toughened to handle anything the kids can throw at it.

Whether you like it or not, you are going to replace your paling fence every five to seven years due to erosion, storm damage, wear and tear or because you are sick of the existing fence and simply want to upgrade it.

Getting a new fence is not a high priority for most Frankston home owners and we do take them for granted but when you think about it, your paling fence provides security and privacy to you and your family.

So when it comes the time to get a new fence your first question will be:

“How Much Is A New Fence?”

And so it should be. I reckon you are just like me and do not have a stash of cash lying around at home in your sock drawer waiting to spend on a fence but if you suddenly walk outside one morning to find your fence lying on the ground after last nights storm, you want it fixed in a hurry.

Or, as happened to me 2 months ago, you are sitting at home and the guy next door knocks on your door and hands you a quote for a timber fence because he has decided to get a new fence.

The cost of a paling fence from Fencing Frankston is going to vary depending on a few factors such as the height and length of the fence, the type of timber used in the fence posts, the pulling down and removal of the old fence, ease of access to the site and more.

For example, and I did not know this at all, if you live in a sandy area such as I do in Frankston, the fence posts have to be deeper in the ground meaning you need longer posts than if going in to hard ground. This requires more cement as well to secure the fence posts. Just this example has made the cost of the fence go up.

The bottom line is this. Giving the price of a paling fence, without looking at the job, is difficult but I will tell you the cost of my new fence to give you a ball park figure. By the way, I got 3 quotes for the fence and the neighbour got two quotes and the difference between the most expensive and cheapest was $700.

I did not choose the cheap paling fence quote for a few reasons but settled on the fencing Frankston company that was mid range, was honest in his dealings with me and had good reviews about his business.

His name is Craig and he is the owner of Fencing Frankston.
(He also does Colorbond Fencing)

The dimensions of the new paling fence I needed are as follows:

Height: 1.9 mtrs
Length: 19 mtrs

The posts are Jarrah measuring 125mm x 75mm at a height of 2.7 mtrs
The rails are a standard 75mm x 50mm
The palings are treated pine.

Using heavy duty nails on the frame and galvanised nails on the palings. It also included cement for the posts and finally the pull down and removal of the old fence.

Fencing Frankston Price

The total price of the new paling fence from Fencing Frankston was $1399 or $699 for each owner. This equates to just under $37 per metre for you and the same for the neighbour. Bear in mind that access is easy to the fence.

I would call $37 per metre a reasonable price for a fence. This cost would increase if you were to add extras like capping to the top of the fence or a gate in there somewhere but you have a ballpark figure to start with in your search for a new paling fence.

I highly recommend you go to Craig’s website for fencing and request a call back from him. He is as honest as the day is long, he is a local Frankston resident and his workmanship is first class. He is the best fence installer I have used.
