Reasons to Install a Pool Fence
Pool Fences Provide Peace of Mind
A swimming pool fence is a decorative accessory for your home that also provides safety and peace of mind.
In addition to bringing you peace of mind so that pets and children stay safe around your pool, having a professionally installed swimming pool fence adds value to your property — an important consideration if you plan to sell it at some point in the future.
A pool fence can add a great deal of beauty and style to the exterior of your home, and Apex Fence Company has a range of different materials and designs available.
BOCA Codes Must Be Met
The swimming pool fence building codes can differ widely between cities and counties in Georgia. If they are not followed precisely, you could receive a summons or inadvertently be responsible for a pet or child falling in your pool.
Apex Fence Company has the experience and knowledge needed to install your pool fence so that it meets and exceeds the stipulations set forth by the county or city where your house is located. You can hire us with confidence and know that you will get an attractive fence that meets all Georgia fencing regulations.
A Pool Fence Gives You Privacy
Another important criterion when it comes to having a pool fence installed is privacy. Being able to enjoy your pool in private without your neighbors peeking at you when you are relaxing is extremely important to most homeowners.
Knowing that the neighborhood kids can see that you are taking a dip in your pool and want to join you can greatly decrease your enjoyment of it. This same idea applies to those adult neighbors who always seem to come to visit you — uninvited and armed with their sunblock and beach towel — as you are preparing to slip into your pool for a relaxing dip.
Attractive Materials and Designs
Pool fences do not have to be chain link, though there is nothing wrong with choosing this material if you need something that is budget-friendly.
There are a number of other types of materials that can be used for your pool fence. Decorative metal pool fences add a significant amount of class and charm to your property. Wood swimming pool fences are available in many different styles that are designed to make your yard look fantastic while still ensuring that kids and pets are kept away from the water.

Trust the professionals at Apex Fence Company guide you towards a pool fence that meets local safety codes and looks great with your home, too.
Pool Fence Materials and Construction
Pool Fences can be constructed from all different kinds of materials. The most common are:
- Decorative Metal
- Chain Link
- And many other construction materials
The codes that apply to pool fencing vary due to different required heights and materials depending on where in the area you reside.
For example, the spaces between vertical members must be less than 4″ on fences 5′ or taller. The allowable spacing for a 4′ tall fence is only 1-3/4″ wide. Horizontal members must be 45″ apart so as to not provide a foothold for children to climb over. Chain link fences for pool applications use a smaller mesh size which is 1-1/4″.

Great experience dealing with Apex Fence. They came on time as schedule and very happy with the work and service provided. Overall, they did a wonderful job!
These guys are great! Kenny had many suggestions that made my yard look wonderful. Their professionalism and craftsmanship made me glad I picked APEX over the other companies I spoke with.
I noticed that Apex received good reviews and called them. The sales person came to the house at the scheduled time and after taking measurements, quoted the best price. The installation crew showed up on time and completed the removal of 156 ft of old fence plus a gate and the installation of the new fence with gate in 1 day. They loaded up the old fence on the truck and left the area in better condition then they found it. They know what they are doing! I highly recommend Apex for any fence installations.
I have never dealt with a more professional business. The quality of their work is outstanding. Very fair price and my every need was met. Carl went far above and beyond my every expectation! Other than being a beautiful fence and excellent workmanship, my concern was that my cats did not get out. They made sure that happened and the work was completed very quickly. I cannot speak highly enough of Carl and this company. My neighbors continue to stop by and compliment the work and ask for the company name. You cannot go wrong with Carl and Apex Fencing. Excellent! -Samantha
Received estimates from three reputable fencing contractors and went with Apex. Shane was a straight shooter, and let me know what would work best in my application. The team came out and completed the fence ahead of schedule, and I couldn't be happier. Very friendly English-speaking crew. I will only use Apex fence for future projects.
Apex was wonderful to work with. As soon as I requested an appointment to measure our yard for a fence, they had a rep out within a matter of days. When we decided to actually install the fence (months later), they honored our original proposal and placed the 2 gates we had coupons for months prior with no additional charge. I made a call to Apex to schedule installation and our fence was completed 8 days later. They are helpful, prompt, and our fence is incredibly well done. Very high quality! All of our neighbors have stopped us to ask who put it in! We are so happy with our new backyard thanks to Apex!
We had our fence installed about 2 months ago. Brian was very helpful in helping us make our decision. When I called with a minor issue after the installation, Brian sent someone out to make sure we were happy with our fence. Everyone who comes to visit us loves the decorative fence and we have given them the number for Apex. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
We recently had a chain linked fence installed. Tom (sales) was very thorough and did an excellent job answering all my questions. The crew showed up on time, were hard workers, were very professional and did a great job. Apex Fence Company exceeded my expectations and that rarely happens! I would highly recommend using them to anyone!
We fenced in our pool & got four prices - Apex Fencing had the best price and did an excellent job. Their assistance in helping us pick the right fence and gates was very helpful.
The folks at Apex came in with the second to lowest bid but their rep, Carl inspired a ton of confidence in his company, Apex. They built a split rail fence w an electric aluminum gate. They even came out after the gate was installed and rewelded the bottom rail to make it PERFECTLY aligned with a very uneven driveway. They were professional, courteous and ethical. I would never use anyone else!
